English: Please log in to Spelling Shed to practise this week's spellings. We have also uploaded a Reading Comprehension for your children to complete. Please bear in mind the answers are at the end of the worksheet for you and your children to use to self-mark.
Maths: Revising on Times Tables Rockstars (with a focus on 3x, 4x, 6x, 8x and 9x).
AR: Please spend at least 30 minutes reading your library books, this does not need to be done in one sitting, you may choose to split this up into 10 or 15-minute slots. If possible, we would value your support in listening to your child read, using the questions from the Parent Advice Booklet to check your child's understanding.
If you have any other questions or queries please email us at Year4@kingsnorth.kent.sch.uk
Our PE will be every Friday. Our block unit this term will be 'Football' - week commencing 27th March.
For PE sessions, please can your child come to school in their uniform, with their PE kit in a named bag. Please could they remove any earrings on the morning of their PE session.
This term we will be focusing on Fractions. We would be grateful if you could please continue to practise times tables with your child on Times Tables Rockstars and www.mathsframe.co.uk at least 3 times a week to help with fluency. To help with the Year 4 multiplication check, please remember to also use https://www.timestables.co.uk and also https://www.timestables.co.uk/multiplication-tables-check/. This gives the children a set of 25 questions with a time limit of 6 seconds to answer each question:
We also recommend you use https://classroom.thenational.academy/subjects-by-year/year-4/subjects/maths to help embed and to stretch learning that takes place in the classroom.
Our text for this term is 'One Plastic Bag' which explores the topic of climate change and protecting our environment.
We expect the children to be reading at home 3 x a week and recording this in their reading log books; practising weekly spellings; visiting https://www.timestables.co.uk 3 x per week and looking over any work that needs completing, sent home by the class teacher.
The times-table website gives a 5 step way of learning the times-table, giving the children the opportunity to read them in order, say them out of order, time themselves and then access free worksheets/games that you can print out. They focus on one times table at a time when they can practise these on TT Check.co.uk.

We are also using Spelling Shed https://www.edshed.com/ for spelling practice. Instead of giving your child a set of spellings to learn each week, we will ask them to complete assignments around a spelling rule that we are learning in school, and then they will be tested on words that contain this rule every Friday. They also have the opportunity to be top of the school leader board! Please concentrate on making sure your children know the spelling from year 2 and the year 3/4 spelling list. Children need to be accessing the Spelling Shed website. If you have forgotten your username and password, please contact your class teacher.
