Welcome back to the start of a new and exciting year. We hope you had an enjoyable festive season and would like to wish you a very happy New Year.
From Salt to Silver
Our main topic this term is Saltaire. We will be focusing mainly on the magnificent mill and how it has changed over the years.
We will be combining our English and Computing skills to create a virtual guide to the mill, past and present. On the 17th (4J) and 22nd (4M) January we will visit the mill to explore, gather information and take photographs and video footage to incorporate into our guide.
Thank you for helping your child learn last half term’s spellings. Spellings for this half term are listed at the bottom of this page.
In Maths we will continue to work on written and mental calculations for multiplication and division, moving on to finding the area of rectilinear shapes and fractions later in the half term. Learning our times tables will continue to feature in our Maths lessons.
Children will be given Learn by Heart Targets on the dates listed at the bottom of this page as their Maths homework. Please could you support them with learning these.
Spellings for this half term are listed below, we would also appreciate you spending some time with your child learning these.
LBH homework will be sent every fortnight. Tasks this half term will continue to be times table based. We would appreciate any help you could give your child in becoming confident and fluent in their recall of the multiplication and division facts for the set times tables.
