Year 4 - Heron Class

Week beginning  11th December 2017


This last week of term has been busy. We have been using our sewing skills to make some fabulous Christmas decorations. Thanks to Gill for all her hard work in preparing this activity. We have been writing our own versions of the Christmas story - using a variety of presentation techniques. The class were able to use some of the ideas from the hot seating activities in Rewind to Christmas. 

In maths we have been using the Nrich Advent Calendar. This gives a different mathematical challenge for each day of December. we have explored repeating patterns in a variety of ways, and as ever we have had some good mathematical discussions. 

We have enjoyed listening to the journeys presentations. Using the atlas, we have found the places from which people travelled. So far, we have visited every continent except Asia and South America, and have found that our  families have made journeys for a variety of reasons. Thank you for your support for this homework. 


Use the Nrich Advent Calendar and have a look at some of the challenge you could do at home https://nrich.maths.org/13392

Go through your spelling test at the back of your spelling book and check the spellings of those that you found difficult.  If anyone wants a further challenge you could look at some of the words you have had this term and find suffixes and/or prefixes.



A quick reminder of homework tasks

  • Regular reading.  
  • Learning table patterns.
  • Learning spellings – little and often. The children have different skills that we learn in class – there is also an information sheet attached to this page.
  • One other piece – this need not take a great deal of time and is discussed at length in class so that the children can do this independently.
