Term 4

Welcome to term 4! 
This term our enquiry question is: 
What is the difference between noise and sound?
We will be scientists, musicians and engineers to answer this question. 
Please see our enquiry map below for more information. 
PE will continue to be on a Monday and Friday - Monday will be outdoors so please dress appropriately! 
Please bring Reading Records in for your teacher to see on Mondays and Thursdays. Remember you can change your book when you need to, you do not need to wait till these days. Children who are on our Read Write Inc Phonics scheme will receive books linked to this via Oxford Owl. Please message your class teacher on Class Dojo for any more information. 
In June we have our year 4 multiplication test check (MTC). The purpose of the MTC is to determine whether pupils can recall their times tables fluently, which is essential for future success in mathematics. It will help schools to identify pupils who have not yet mastered their times tables, so that additional support
can be provided. Within the MTC, the children will have 25 questions to answer, with a time limit of 6 seconds per question. The questions will be from any times table, up to 12 x 12. 
Whilst we are spending a lot of time on times tables at school, there is lots you can do to support your child at home. Below are some websites that provide games and challenges. You can also regularly ask your child some times tables facts. Maybe you could turn it into a game - how long does it take them to get 10 out of 10? Can they beat their own score? The more they practice, the faster they will become.
