Dolphins (Year 4/5) 2018 - 2019
Welcome to Term 1 in Dolphins Class! Our theme this term is WW1 and we will be doing lots of work together in KS2 to find out all about this time in history.
Please can you ensure your child has their PE kit in school at all times so that they can participate in all PE sessions (Tuesdays and Wednesdays)! We may also change the times or have other opportunuties arise where the children need to wear their PE kits so it is very important that they are in school all the time. We will also be starting the Mile-a-Day run again and children will need their trainers and a spare pair of socks for this activity.
Homework will 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!
Reading and Spelling
Children are expected to read to an adult at home at least 3 times per week and their reading record should be signed. We have also introduced a spelling book and we would like the children to practise their spellings at home at least 3 times per week too. The spelling book is also used daily at school so needs to come into school each day. There are a number of spelling activities the children have learnt to practise (an example of some of these is below) - see if they can teach you how to do some!
- Pyramid Writing
- Three Times
- Bubble Words
- Blue Vowels
- Fancy Letters
