Letters to Mark Jones

Dear Mark Jones,

We hope you are still reading our Blog and many thanks for your email. It was fantastic to receive an email from you and all of Year 4 have emailed you back. Mrs Hadley has your email address but we decided to post the letters for you to read.

We would love to here from you again.

Your sincerely

Get Talking…Get Learning!

Literacy- After the holiday we are starting a new topic about persuasion. If you persuade someone to buy you something how do you do it? Can you write down a persuasive conversation using speech marks? Over the holidays we want you to watch TV! Look at the adverts do they persuade you and how? You need to write down your top 10 favourite adverts and describe why they are your favourite.
Remember to read everyday and complete your blue reading journal and real readers. Try and visit the library to find some new and exciting books.

Phonics- Over the holidays, pick your favourite story and using the characters, make your own phonics books. Remember it will need to have red, green and speed sound words.

Numeracy – We are going to be completing our shape topic on polygons, sorting shapes, lines of symmetry and angles. Be creative and make your own symmetrical shape patterns. You could use squared paper to really challenge yourself. Learn about angles and the different triangles.
Be mathematical everyday. Practise your times tables for your times table challenge. Do 3 games of matheletics live everyday. When you go shopping work out the total and the change. Keep using the column method to + and -. Use the Blog to try the websites and test your skills.

We will be starting your new topic of CHOCOLATE! Over the holidays you need to do a bit of research about chocolate. Can you please collect any wrappers and boxes? We need to discover how chocolate is made and what ingredients are used. Remember out trip to Cadbury’s World. Question your family, what chocolate do they like and why?
After the holidays we are all swimming on Tuesday 1st November so remember your swimming kits. Try and go swimming in the holidays to keep practising your new skills. Now that the weather is getting colder make sure you have your outdoor PE kit. It should include long jogging bottoms, a jumper and pumps/trainers but remember no zips or buttons.
Wednesday afternoons 4D will be doing Outdoor Education with Mr Barton and Miss Thomas. 4D will need a full change of warm clothes as it can get quite muddy and cold! This includes footwear and it cannot be your PE kit. 4P will be doing very exciting music on with Mrs Myatt.
Have a lovely holiday and enjoy playing your circuits game with your family and friends!
