Year 4 Weekly Evaluation Friday 4th December 2020

This week Silent Night was performed to perfection, DVD’s are available for purchase and we hope you enjoy the Christmas celebrations we have recorded. We had a lot of fun doing our part and rumour has it that there is also a section of the DVD devoted to the staff dancing in front of a pink Christmas tree. A must-see experience which will raise a smile I’m sure. Thank you for helping us to look great on the day, the Christmas jumpers were fantastic.
Mrs Lloyd came to visit us on Wednesday and helped the children create Christmas cards on j2e which was a lovely way to send a special message to friends.
This week our maths focus has been on halving and doubling 2 and 3-digit numbers. The children worked well and have shown a good understanding. Ask them to show you how to do it at home, they’re very good.
Our work on narrative continues, the children have also completed a reading comprehension linked to our text, ‘To the Edge of the World’. We were looking for verbs and adverbs in the text, maybe this is something you can do at home when reading together. Other ideas when reading together at home to improve reading comprehension could include asking questions when the children read. Ask them to describe the character and setting using adjectives. Discuss what the characters may be thinking at a particular point in the story. Talk about alternative endings. Then ask them to write about their favourite character in the story or write a short book review. These are lovely activities to complete on a regular basis and this will certainly improve your child’s reading, comprehension and writing skills.
It has been another busy week but thoroughly enjoyable. It is an absolute pleasure to teach Year 4, they are really fantastic, enthusiastic and hardworking young people.
Stay warm and have fun this weekend.
Kind regards
Miss H Hughes and Mrs Evans
