In Year 4 we learn to read, write and convert between analogue and digital time (12hour and 24hour), including converting between hours/minutes, minutes/seconds, years/months, weeks to days.
It is expected that children already know how to tell the time to 1 minute intervals by now.
We are listening to a song to help us with this:
Please help us by asking your child to convert between different units of time, how many days in a month etc.

Our Year Four superheroes are aspiring to have superhero mindsets to achieve their potential and follow all of our school Gospel Values.
In Year Four we investigate further our Gospel Value of Peace.
We have been learning about our Gospel Value of Peace. We have thought about what Peace means to us and how we can find 'inner peace'. We have looked at significant people in history linked to Peace.
We have looked at the dove being a key symbol of Peace. We have sketched doves in Art and decorated them with Peace symbols, colours and images that make us feel 'at Peace'. We have also created acrostic poems about Peace.

English and Maths homework returned to school on Mondays.

Don't forget to access TT Rockstars (logins are at the FRONT of your child's Reading Record). This is a super resource that we have subscribed to and helps to improve the speed and recall of mental maths facts (in preparation for the statutory times table test, in 2020).
Remember to complete this at least three times a week.
By Year 4, it is expected that children are already proficient in their x2, x3, x4, x5, x8 and x10 tables (including the corresponding division facts).
Remember to complete one 'BugClub' book a week. This fantastic resource supports children's learning by improving their inference and deduction skills when answering questions about the text.
Bring in Library books to change on Fridays!
