Dolphins (Year 4) 2017 - 2018
Welcome to Term 2 in the brand new Dolphins Class! We have lots of exciting things planned for this term, have a look at the documents section to find our plans for this term!
PE and the Mile Run
We will continue running our mile a day and will be doing this on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. Please can you ensure your child has their PE kit in school at all times so that they can participate in both the run and PE (Monday and Tuesday afternoons)! They will also need a spare pair of socks for the mile run, as the grass can sometimes be a bit dewy in the mornings!
Homework will now be given out on a Friday and due back on the date on the sheet. It will usually consist of a number of tasks or projects that the children need to complete. They can do this in any creative or imaginative way they want to! In the past, we have had photos, models, pull out flaps and games! There might also be tasks where you are encouraged to read and discuss topics with your children.
Have a look in the Documents section to find our '50 Things to Do' homework. Two or three items from this checklist should be completed in each holiday and recorded in some way so that the children can bring them in and share their experiences. This could be recorded in their homework book or using photographs, powerpoints etc.
Remember to stay safe when researching online!
It is important for the children to learn their times tables off by heart and this can easily be practised at home at least 3 times a week, alongside their regular reading. By the end of Year 4, the expectation is that the children know their times tables up to 12x12. Here is an excellent website designed to help the children learn their times tables in a fun and engaging way, through games and activities.
Enjoy and have fun!
As we have been looking at the digestive system, here is a little video we watched in class to help understand the different parts of our digestive system and what they do!
