We are going to be performing in our Assembly about the Vikings This Friday. The children are keen to dress up as vikings for this and should have come home with some costume ideas. The children have decided that baggy shirts, jogging bottoms and long dresses would be good things.

If the children could bring some of these items by Wednesday or Thursday it would be appreciated.

Some of the children are also keen to make axes and helmets- we will have time to do this in class but if anyone wishes to take this project on at home feel free. The deadline is Friday 22nd April!

P4 Homework 8/3/16

The children are working very hard in class this week on assessments. Therefore, there will be no formal reading or spelling homework.

Reading will still be heard in class but we won’t send any reading home as the lessons we would normally use to set the homework are used for the assessment time.

Maths and Numeracy

There will however be some maths and numeracy homework distributed. Each child should have 4 worksheets to complete.

These cover multiplication and division by 10 and division in fractions. This is work that the children have recently covered in class and should be revision. However if you need any tips on how to help using the methods that we did in class, please let me know. Also, if anyone needs to borrow any cubes etc, they are welcome to do so.

Sumdog: as normal.

Learnits: There is no need to cover Learn its this week if you are short on time, maths homework can be tricky for all.
