Our topic this term:

 Ancient Greece

This term we will be finding out about who lived in Ancient Greece and what daily life was like for them. Also, we will be finding out what legacy the Greeks left that which is still visible in our lives today. In addition, we will be exploring Greek architecture and pottery through collage and sketching.

This is what we will be learning about this term:

Homework

 

In year 4, we complete reading, spellings, a skills sheet and projects. This year we are learning our times tables in school every day but should still practise them at home.

 

On a TUESDAY we hand in our projects once a term. We can choose from different options but must turn them in via Google Classroom by the date given. The options, date and classroom code are stuck in the back of our diaries and are in the document below.

 

On a WEDNESDAY we hand in our skills sheet and get given a new one. One week we have maths and the next week we get English. These sheets help us to practise skills we have been covering in class.

 

Reading should be completed at least 5 times each week and recorded in diaries. We complete an online quiz in school when we have finished our book to show how well we understood what we read. Reading diaries must be signed by an adult each time the child reads. The number of times read is counted up on a FRIDAY.

 

On a FRIDAY we are tested on our spellings. They are stuck in the back of our home-school diaries and are on the document below.

Other Useful Information

  • Our PE days are Mondays and Thursdays (Giraffes)/Tuesdays and Thursdays (Zebras) and will take place outside, weather permitting. Please make sure children come in wearing full PE kit (trainers, black leggings/joggers, plain white t-shirt and red school jumper) on these days. Earrings must be removed or taped up and hair must be tied up if it can be.
