Swordfish class will be reading and studying the text 'Street Child' written by Berlie Doherty, which is considered a modern classic and reflects aspects of 'poor' Victorian life.
It is expected that pupils will complete 4 Mathletics tasks, set by Mrs. Johnstone each week, which are linked to the mathematical learning for that week or previous weeks.
Pupils should read daily and record in their reading diary as appropriate - personal response comments with explanations about the reading are preferable to number of pages read and generic expressions, such as 'I liked it.', 'It.was good/boring.'
Each week. pupils should bring home their Read, Write , Inc. spelling journals for parents to peruse. It will include spellings that the pupil has made mistakes with or found tricky. The class is currently reviewing the Year 4 programme of spellings, which include spellings from the Year3/4 NC14 spelling list (see below).
In the Spring term, there will be weekly revision sheets sent home for maths and english in preparation for SATs. The main requirement for the teacher is to know when there are difficulties with questions on these sheets or if they were too easy and not challenging enough. They will not be marked regularly and it is up to the pupil to approach their teacher if they require feedback about their sheets.
