Autumn Term 1


Well done Hawks Class for making such a positive start in Year 4.

In Maths we have been using our place value knowledge to round numbers to the nearest 10 and 100. We have reinforced our learning of greater than and less than and have been increasing our mathematical vocabulary to deepen our understanding by using base 10 and place value counters to "prove it," to a friend or a teacher.

In our class Worship, and in our PSHE we have been thinking about all the people in our school who we are THANKFUL to.


Well done to all the children for being organised and responsible, and for changing quickly in readiness to be in the water for the start of our swim time. Next week we need to reinforce our thoughtfulness and awareness to the general public and be more aware of our surroundings. The children will be grouped by the swim teacher ready for our second swim session.

Times table Races

These take place on a Tuesday. The children receive them back marked on a Wednesday morning. They have been recording their score into their Reading Record books to share with you at home.

Spelling Test

As part ouf our class routine, the children are practising their spellings using the Look, Say, Cover, Write, Check method. I have uploaded a blank grid onto the home learning tab, should you wish to print one of these off at home to encourage and support your child's learning methods at school. Spelling tests are carried out before lunch, and the children receive their marked spelling test back after lunch. This is so they can record their scores and have dialogue and feedback with you over the weekend. They receive their new spelling words at the same time.

Homework "Pick and Mix"

Thank you for the homework received already. There is plenty of time to complete the homework, the deadline is Friday 19th October.

Citizenship Award

We have talked in class about the By Brook Valley Citizenship Award. You will find more information about the bronze level and it's requirements on the Home Learning page.
