Class Novel

Running Wild by Michael Morpurgo 

For Will and his mother, going to Indonesia on holiday is a chance to put things behind them and have some fun. 

But then the elephant Will is riding on the beach begins acting strangely. That's when the tsunami comes crashing in, and the elephant begins to run. Except that when the tsunami is gone, Wills elephant just keeps on running...


This term, PE is on a Tuesday.  We are learning about dance. Please make sure you have your full kit every Tuesday

Home Reading 

This year, we are having a big focus on reading across the school. We are aiming to encourage more home reading. Regular reading helps children to develop their fluency and comprehension skills, and  in turn helps them to access the rest of the curriculum. Reading books will be changed on MondaysWednesdays and Fridays. Please sign your child’s reading record every time they read. Children that read 3 or more times over the course of the week will be entered into a weekly raffle for the chance to win book of their choice!  Children that have read the most over the course of the half term will be invited to a special reading breakfast at the end of term

Spellings and Times Tables

Children will receive spellings and times tables on Monday in preparation for a spelling test the following Friday.

In year 4, we hold a weekly times table speed test, in which the children aim to beat their score or their time. Please ensure your child practices their timetables regularly – it is a national curriculum objective that children know all their times tables facts up to 12×12 (and the associated division facts) by the end of year 4.
