Hello everyone and welcome to Year 4!
Year 4 - Boreal Owls
Teacher: Miss Lois MacDonald
TA: Mrs Alison Wheeler
In school this week, we will be looking at:
We will continue looking at being able to recognise the difference between both analogue and digital clocks. Being able to represent a given time on both an analogue and digital clock, recognising the important elements of each time of the clock. We will also look at working out lengths of time.
We will also be looking at other forms of measurement including that of measurement for length.
English - The Clown by Quentin Blake
This week we will be continuing with our work on the story of The Clown by Quentin Blake. The children thoroughly enjoyed looking at the story of The Clown last week and produced some incredible work from it. This time we will be looking at the importance of the choice of images and which ones are the key ones in telling a story. On Tuesday we will be looking at identifying 2-4 key images and explaining why these images are vital to the story. On Wednesday we will be looking at creating our own storyboard purely using pictures; the children will have a choice of creating a picture storyboard for either The Clown or create a picture board for a story of their own. On Thursday, we will be using our picture storyboard to help us create our own short story, either that of The Clown or a story of their own.
Pomegranates will be looking common exceptions words. See the pdf link below for their spellings this week.
Pineapple spellers this week will be doing a spelling test of the words they have learnt this term, recognising those that they still find tricky and then transfer these into their spelling books for them to refer to.
We will also be practising our own individual ZAP word spellings using our spelling methods menu.
Dear Boreal Owls and Parents,
I would like to welcome you all to the new school term and our new class family. I am looking forward to delving into the learning this terms with the class and starting our learning journey together.
The topic for this term is Ancient Egypt. We will be exploring the time period of the Ancient Egyptians, as well as exploring the topic in other cross-curricular contexts. For more information about the topic, how we will be exploring this and what other areas of learning we will be covering this term, please see the topic web below.
If you have any questions or wish to discuss anything with me, please let me know.
Miss Lois MacDonald
