Kookaburra Class (Year 4)
The Year 4 children who attend Knitting Club have learnt how to finger knit. They then decided to shape their knitting into a heart, just in time for Valentine's Day. They are so proud of them, and so they should be! I wonder what their next project will be? Watch this space!
We have introduced 'Times Tables Rockstars' to the children and have set up accounts for them. As many parents know the children are very engaged with this clever piece of software which is designed to help children learn their multiplication tables. Please encourage them to play it at home! The children at at a stage in their learning where knowing their multiplication tables by heart will be of immense value to their progress.
During the first half of the Spring Term we are studying the oceans as our topic. All children have been asked to complete a project about an ocean as part of their home learning. We have visited the London Aquarium as part of our topic learning and pictures will be on the website shortly.
Please refer to the 'Key Instant Recall Facts' above. Children are expected to instantly know their 9 and 11 times tables by half term. The best way to learn multiplication tables is to practice often. Home practice would therefore assist greatly.
