Dear Parents and Guardians

The children have now settled into the routine of Year 4. They are working hard and now need to continue to read at least once a week, learn their weekly spellings and ensure they know their times tables for our daily times table rock stars.

In English this half term, we will be creating and performing poetry and looking at science fiction stories and then writing our own. In mathematics, we will be concentrating on multiplication including multiplying numbers by 10,100 and 1000.

After our visit to Quarry Bank Mill, we will be continuing some aspects of the Victorian theme, when we study the local area and find out about the different uses of the buildings in Ashton. The children will also be creating a questionnaire, which we hope their families will complete to support us in our local area study in Geography.

Just a remainder that in the Spring term (starting in January) the children will be participating in swimming lessons at Ashton swimming baths. Letters will be sent out in due course.

Thank you for your continued support.

Regards

Mrs Etchells Class teacher 4E
