Our topic this term is 'Ty Mawr'!
This topic will look at the River Dee and the features and changes in rivers. We will also look at how Britain changed between the Stone Age and the Iron Age.
This term the pupils will be looking at place value in to 3 and 4 digit numbers, and how numbers can be partitioned and manipulated.
In early June 2024 the Year 4s will be doing their 'Multiplication Check'. They are given 6 seconds to answer timestables questions up to 12 x 12.
It is therefore really important to try to find time at home for your child to practise their timestables as practising them frequently is the only way to establish fluency in this area.
We are of course practicing these in school, but time and resources are limited and so individual practice at home is crucial.
I have linked to some resources at the bottom of this page which can be used to practise times tables fluency at home.

During Autumn term, P.E. will be on Mondays and we will go swimming on Tuesdays. Swimming does not start until 26th September, but will then run until Christmas. Children must come to school in P.E. kits on Mondays and Tuesdays. Children will also have to bring their navy swimming kits with them on Tuesdays and be collected from the leisure centre.
For the first week back, the children will not need to come in P.E. kits.
PE Kit / Jewellery
On P.E. days, all children will be coming into school in their PE kit. Please ensure that children are wearing the correct kit i.e.
Navy Tracksuit bottoms when it is cold
Navy plain hoody
Trainers not pumps
Long hair must always be tied back
