Bickleigh Down CofE Primary School

‘Spurring each other on with love’

Year 4

Welcome back! We hope you all had a great Christmas break!

Here is some information about this term for Year 4:

  • PE will still be on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  If you can, please provided warmer joggers and a jumper for PE as it is now getting colder.  We are also having lots of items being mislaid and it would be helpful if names in PE kits to help return items to their owners
  • Spelling tests will be on a Tuesday – these words can be found in the Home School diary.  Please remember to LOOK, COVER, WRITE, CHECK to help practise.
  • Homework will be given out on a Tuesday, to be returned by the following Tuesday.  This term we will begin to focus a little more on times tables and will shortly be sending out various ways for your child to practise.
  • We will continue to have a times table test at the end of the week on Friday. 

This half term we are looking into Megacities as our Geography topic.  In Computing we are developing our spreadsheet skills and in science we are investigating states of matter.  Our DT project to design and make a pencil case will continue.

We are always free at the end of the day so feel free to catch us then if you have any questions or queries.
