Literacy Homework - 23/11/2018

For your literacy homework this week, we would like you to create a poem for a times table of your choice.

For each multiplication we would like a sentence which rhymes with the end of the calculation.

Below is an example from the seven times table:


Maths is great, it’s a great thing to do,

Six times seven is forty two. (6 X 7 = 42)


You must write a rhyming sentence and calculation for each of the calculations in the times table.

You can pick any times table that you like, however it is best if you pick one that you find difficult or struggle with as writing a poem will help you to remember it.

This week in maths year 4 will be reading and writing the time in the digital and analogue form. They will also be learning about the 24 hour clock. 

4D enjoyed making pizzas whilst following their own instructions incorporated with their understanding of fractions.

Homework - Week commencing 12/11/2018


Your task this week is to apply what you have learnt through instruction writing in literacy by making a pizza with someone at home. As we have covered this in class, you should be able to use time connectives and imperative verbs to instruct the person you are cooking with and explain why each step is necessary.

You can make any kind of pizza you like.

All we would like next week is a photo of you making the pizza and one photo of the finished deliciousness!

Once you have created your pizza, you could then discuss what you have learnt about fractions in numeracy with the people you share it with!


Below is the name of the dough which we used to make the pizzas in class, which is available from Sainsburys or Waitrose:

The Northern Dough Co. Pizza Dough Original/Wholemeal


All that is left to say is we hope you have fun and bon appétit! smiley

4KD had great fun working together to follow our own instructions to make pizza. Once the pizzas were cooked, we discussed fractions as we cut them into 2/2, 4/4 and 8/8... and then we tucked in and they were delicious!

Maths - Week commencing 12/11/18


Year 4 will be continuing to learn about fractions and moving on to learn how to divide by 10, 100 and 1000.

Maths support

If you would like extra support/work for your child to complete with regard to mathematics, there are a couple of things that can be found on the MyMaths website.

When you first log in using your child's username and password, four tabs appear; the first of which is labelled 'homework'.

If you click on the 'results' tab you can check the results of your child's homework, and if there is an area where you feel that they need more practise, then they can redo that homework and practise sessions.

If you click on the 'resources' tab, you will see how much of each year groups curriculum they have completed previously (years 1, 2 and 3) and if you deem it necessary then they can complete the curriculum from the previous years to solidify their knowledge and understanding.

There is also the 'games' tab which your child can access and play games which link to maths skills which they either have or will need during their homework.


Also, here are a list of websites which you and your child can use for support/extensions with numeracy:

This month's Global Goal is 'Peace and Justice Month'.


We celebrate this goal by looking at significant people around the world in our past and present whom have been role models and have promoted equality. 


We were very privileged to have met a motivational speaker named 'Siya Twani' who came in and took our school assembly at the start of the month. He spoke to the children about the meaning of equality and the importance of acceptance and respect to others. He shared events from history which shows why Nelson Mandela, Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King are role models.


Here are stories which show racial and social class equality. You can share these stories with your child/children to help their understanding of peace and equality; to start discussions on fairness; to discuss how we can help others today (Harvest Festival);



Ask the following questions;

How can you bring love and peace to your circle of friends and family? 

How can we promote peace and respect in our school and local community? 


Kind regards
