Hi Year 4,
I hope you have all had a lovely weekend. I enjoyed spending time with my boys. Jacob and I had lots of fun playing some interactive games on his Nintendo Switch. We played table tennis and a dance game. It was lots of fun trying to hit the imaginary ball!!!
I have also been trying to get a bit fitter, so I invested in a fitbit and I have been trying to do at least 10,000 steps every day. I have walked up and down my stairs at home lots to add more steps!!
I am looking forward to coming to see you all this week. If your parents have not responded to the message on the school app requesting a time please ask them to do so.
See you soon.
Love Mrs Martin
Good morning 4A,
Hopefully this week, I will be coming to see you with Mrs Kauser! I am looking forward to it and it has been over three months since I saw you last! If your grown ups haven't filled out the form to see when they would like me to do my doorstep visit, please encourage them to do so! I won't spend too much time writing a catch up post on here as we will have lots of catching up to do in person!
Looking forward to seeing you,
Lots of love,
Miss Anwar x
Today's maths lesson will be Lesson 1 - Interpret charts. This is part of the Y4 Statistics topic, which 4A had not covered in school.
Today's reading activity is focused on understanding the text.
This lesson includes:
one video to explain what 'comprehension' means
one video telling the story of The Prince Who Thinks He Is A Rooster
When you read a text and show you understand it by answering questions, this is called comprehension.
You use comprehension skills all the time in everyday life. For example, when you work out what a sign means, watch a film or listen to a podcast.
You often need to link together facts and clues to properly comprehend (understand) what’s happening in a text.

Today you are going to be doing some SPAG based on coordinating conjunctions, the details of this are below. However, over the course of this week you are going to be planning and writing a short story for Virgin Radio's special 500 words competition - Black Lives Matter.
I have attached a document which tells you more about this competition and today I would like you to choose which Black role model you would like to base your story on. You can do some research about this person on line. Tomorrow you will begin to create the characters for your story.
I can't wait to read these stories at the end of the week.
Today's SPaG lesson is all about coordinating conjunctions.
Conjunctions are joining words that link together parts of a sentence. The three main coordinating conjunctions are ‘and’, ‘but’ and ‘or’.
They can be used to join together two clauses in a sentence. However, the clauses need to make sense on their own. For example:
I had a terrible cold. I still went to work.
You can add the coordinating conjunction ‘but’ in between these causes so the sentence reads:
I had a terrible cold but I still went to school.

This afternoon, we thought it would be nice to practise a little bit of French ready for Year 5. Today's lesson is all about your family and hobbies that you may do.
