Were the Tudors really that terrible?
This term, we are studying 'The Secret Diary of Thomas Snoop, Tudor Boy Spy'. This highly entertaining historical fiction book, is all about Thomas Snoop, a trainee spy looking to uncover Tudor traitors making plots against the king!
In our Maths, we are working on becoming multiplication and division champions! Everything from multiplying and dividing by 10 and 100 to the formal multiplication and division methods!
Our Topic this term is The Tudors- Were the Tudors really that terrible? Within our topic, we will be focusing on the Henry VIII period, looking at why he married six times, what changes happened during that period and day to day life of a Tudor.
Times Table Challenge
Learning your times tables is an incredibly important part of your education, therefore, Frog Class complete a 'Times Tables Challenge' twice a week.
This is against the clock with the pupils challenging themselves to complete the various levels, hopefully reaching the fabled 'Ultimate Challenge' which includes all 144 times tables!
As in every year, reading is incredibly important skill to not only learn but to constantly improve upon. In Year 4, we love reading and challenging ourselves to read a wide variety of fiction and non-fiction books and texts.
The more you read the more you know!
Knowledge is power!
Physical Education or PE, as many benefits to education. It provides many health benefits, both physical and mental, as well as increasing confidences and self-esteem.
As always, I encourage all pupils to participate in PE, providing plenty of chances for them to show off new skills.
This term we will be participating in tennis and hockey, both on a Monday.
However, it is important that all pupils wear the appropriate kit:
Plain white t-shirt
Black or white shorts
Trainers or Plimsols
