Welcome to year 4 and welcome to 4M. It has been a pleasure to meet everyone and I am very much looking forward to the rest of the year. It is a big year with a lot of learning and fun to be had by everyone.
This week we have hit the floor running with a lot of hard work in Numeracy, fine tuning our place value knowledge and learning our timetables. We have been working on our 5x tables and focusing on learning them in the manner of 1 x 5 = 5, 2 x 5 = 10... It is extremely important to know these and not just to learn them in the multiples. I have added a link for Percy Parker's 5x table song, which we have been using all week: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m3U03MC-SfQ
In English, we have started a new book, Jessie Owens. We have predicted what we think may happen and discussed opinions about whether it is a fiction or non-fiction book. We will continue to work on this book for the next couple of weeks, I hope the children enjoy reading it as much as I have.
Just a few quick reminders:
Have a lovely weekend everyone!
