Year 4: Weekly roundup

We have had another fun week of learning. This week we have spent some time learning abut coding. We have written code to tell a story and we have ended the week having a go at coding Micro:Bits.


Next week we will be writing our own version of our class book Journey. We will spend time telling the story using a story map then we will use everything that we have learned this half term to write our own version of the story, including exciting sentences and punctuation. We will be finishing off our work on India by comparing life in Chembakolli and Wrexham. We will think about a day in the life of a school child and compare their daily tasks with our own. We will also be identifying human and physical features of Chembakolli. In maths we will be creating a graph to compare the average monthly rainfall in India and Wales.

Next week is prayer week so the hall will be set up with prayer stations. We will spend time visiting the prayer stations on Friday afternoon. Thursday is Values Day so we will be doing some activities linked to our whole school value of Thankfulness.


As the hall is being used for Prayer Stations next week we will not be able to do PE on Wednesday so please come to school in your uniform. We will go out onto the playground to experience some traditional Indian playground games at different points throughout the week and we will be keeping active throughout the day. PE is planned as normal for Monday so remember to come in your kits and bring a coat in case the weather isn’t good.


When we were planning our topic at the start of this half term the pupils decided that they would like to try some Indian food. We have planned to taste food last lesson on Thursday. We will be trying a variety of Indian snacks and food. If your child has any food allergies please let us know by Monday at the latest.


Reading books are coming home today and pupils still have another week to complete their Indian fact files. Please make sure that these are handed in by Thursday next week.
