Middle Street Primary School

Autumn

 

Our new learning journey is SOLID AS A ROCK.  We will be learning about the Stone Age, the Bronze Age and the Iron Age!

 

Every Friday, each child is given five spellings to learn over the weekend.  All spelling books should be back in school by the following Friday morning.  If every child brings their spelling book in on time, the class receive a class reward.

 

Please ensure that your child is reading and practicing times tables every evening.  Children will do Times Table Superheroes tests every week.  Remember practice makes perfect!  I recommend this site (https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button).  The document attached under the Times Tables Superheroes page( Tables Practice) includes some activities for Year 4 too.  Go to http://www.transum.org/Software/SW/Starter_of_the_day/ for problem questions.  There are also some great live lessons on the link below:

Children must bring their complete PE kit every Tuesday and Thursday.  

 

I will be on the playground after school everyday.  However if you wish to talk to me in more detail, please contact the office to arrange a meeting with me.

What a fantastic trip we had! We learn about people living in Britain in the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age!

Look at our amazing place value work in Maths!  We have been using thousands, hundreds, tens and ones.

We went to Fabrica for a morning of Art.  We made our own stained glass windows inspired by the ones in the Fabrica Art Gallery.  We had a lovely morning in our local gallery.

We used Scratch to make a background and sprites, like the ones on the tennis game we played.  We also discussed how the algorithms work for each sprite.
