This term Year 4 are learning about India. We are looking forward to another exciting term ahead. We have lots of fun activities planned.J

 

Here are some suggestions you might like to try together to support your child in their learning.

Read it!

Work it out!

Explore it!

  • Look on Google Earth and explore the country

  • Talk about the country of India with your family, what do you know about it?

  • How is the climate different to the UK? Investigate if it ever snows. What is a monsoon?

  • Talk about what life might be like for children in India. Do they all go to school? Are all schools the same? What do they do at school?

Design it!

  • Create your own Mendi or Rangoli designs.

Get active!

  • You could investigate different Indian dance styles and compare videos on YouTube.

Cook it!

  • Try and make an Indian recipe. This website has lots of free recipes: http://allrecipes.co.uk/recipes/tag-3295/indian-curry-recipes.aspx

 

 

We are promoting the enjoyment of reading in Year 4 and have set up many reading challenges including: read for the stars, book bingo, book swaps and read theory. The children have a stimulating and creative book corner to relax in and share their favourite books with their friends.

 

We look forward to an exciting term aheadno

Year Four's Reading challenge - Read for the stars

 

As an incentive for reading at home, we have introduced a class reading chart called 'Read for the stars'.

Every week we will count how many times your child has read at home (diary must be signed by an adult).We will do this every week throughout half term. The children will be in charged of moving their spaceship through the planets in the solar system. Their ultimate target is to reach the stars.

 

How can you help your child?

1. Encourage your child to read at home at least 5 times a week- read for enjoyment (favourite books, library book, comic, e-book etc).

2. Sign their diaries and make comments about their enjoyment, engagement, progress etc

 

We hope the children enjoy this challenge and most importantly their reading

Literacy - Year Four's trip to Carlton library

Literacy - We've been studying Robin Hood the film and the text (we've not finished it yet so keep the story a secret for now!) We learnt about the different features used by writers and film makers. Now we are in the process of retelling the events whilst also describing the character for our readers. As we've been so impressed with the quality of our writing, we've got a competition for the best/most improved 3 to go on our class page...watch this space!
