Welcome to 4CB/VF!
Teachers: Mrs Boxall and Mrs Foyle
LSA: Mrs Squires
We have had a fantastic start to the Autumn term and the children have adjusted well into life in Year 4.
In English, we are learning suspense writing and using 'show not tell' in order to create descriptive writing.
We are continuing to look at written methods for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division in Maths.
Electricity is our focus for Science this half term - we are learning about where electricity comes from and making our own circuits. We will be using these skills to help us create an illuminated carnival cart model in Art.
Our Topic for this half term is rivers.
We have just launched an exciting new reading programme called Accelerated Reader. The children now all have a reading book to bring home along with their reading record. Once the children have read their book they take a short online test in school. This gages whether they are ready to move onto the next level.
At the beginning of each half term the children are given a list of spellings they are expected to learn each week. They are tested every Friday.
4CB/VF have PE every Thursday and Friday.
