Autumn Term PE Days – Heavers Farm Primary School 

PE:

PE lessons will be on Monday and Friday. Please ensure your child brings appropriate PE clothing and footwear as well as ensuring they don't wear any jewellery on these days. Thank you in advance. 


Class 4 Homework | Anson CE Primary School

Homework will be given out on a Friday and expected to be returned to school by the following Thursday in order to be marked by a member of staff. 

Homework will mostly consist of:

  • Spellings - Your child should practise their weekly spellings via Spelling Shed. 
     
  • Times tables - Your child is required to practise their times tables weekly using TT Rockstars (Preferably Garage and Studio mode).
     
  • Maths - Your child is expected to complete 1 page of their Maths books per week.

  • SPaG - In Year 4, Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar is a key focus this year. Your child will be sent home with a SPaG activity weekly based on either the current week's learning or a previously taught concept. I will also aim to provide an information sheet in order to support parents with this.
     
  • Reading -  It is reccomended that your child should be reading for at least 10 minutes per day (aloud to an adult or independently). An adult should then ask their child questions based on what they have read. Your child is then expected to write a book review in order to move up the 'Reading Ladder'.

Thank you in advance for all your support with your child's learning. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch via email at dgordon@walesprimary.co.uk

Anti-bullying lesson.JPG

Year 4 participated in a BBC Live Lesson specially designed Anti-Bullying Week 2021. Working in partnership with the Anti-Bullying Alliance, this lesson highlighted some of the issues around bullying and the support available - including support for pupils navigating the online world from BBC Own It. Great involvement from all of the class!

 

A group of Y6's joined us this week in order to support us with our editing and share ideas for our writing themed around descriptions of the WW1 trenches. Year 4 found it most helpful! Thanks to Miss Harley and Mrs Spencer for enabling the Year 6's to join us!

In Science, we showed tremendous knowledge of vertebrates and invertebrates. Here we are working in pairs to sort animals into groups.

Mrs Baxter brought in her pet Bearded Dragon and her stick insects to show the children to coincide with our Science topic 'Animals and their Habitats'. We loved it! Thanks Mrs Baxter.

Wellbeing Wednesday!

Every half term, Year 4 will be partaking in a day full of activities aimed at boosting our mental and physical wellbeing. This half term, we went for a long walk (approximately 11km!) around the Kiveton Woodlands before visiting the Wales Recreation Ground to play golf, tennis and play on the playground. An enormous amount of fun was had by all - including the adults! Well done Year 4 for representing school so well.

Year 4 Musicians!

Some of our Year 4 musicians asked to play what they have been learning in their music lessons. We were mightily impressed! Keep up the great work! 

BBC Live Lesson - Space Week

Year 4 participated in a live Science lesson courtesy of the BBC. Presenter Grace Webb was joined by scientist Greg Foot for an epic space experiment, where we discovered how the moon got its craters by creating a miniature comet in the studio. We also learnt about how space tech influences our lives every single day – from watching tv to crossing the road.

Ancient Greece Virtual Workshop @ the British Museum

Year 4 enjoyed learning all about the Ancient Greeks in a virtual workshop courtesy of the British Museum, London. The children participated in an interactive quiz as well as designing their own temples!
