Cedar Timetable HT1

Homework

  1. Practice multiplication tables and corresponding division facts daily.

  2. Read at least five times each week with an adult and sign the child’s reading record.

  3. English and Maths homework (alternate weeks)

Homework and reading is set on a Wednesday and handed in, completed, by the following Wednesday (of course, it can be handed in before then, in order to avoid last minute panic).  In KS2 we work on encouraging children to be independent and take responsibility.  

Reading

Every child is encouraged to read at home.  Every time you listen to your child please add a signature into the space provided in the yellow reading record. This must be signed by a parent or a carer or another family member that is 16 years +.  Please listen to your child read at least five times per week and ask them questions to check their understanding.

Science

In Science Cedar Class have been studying physics.  We used a variety of electrical apparatus to explore how to create a successful circuit.  Also we looked at why a circuit was unsuccessful and how we could fix it.

 Creativity Week - New Zealand

In October we participated in our school Multicultural Cultural Creativity Week.  In Year 4 we looked at New Zealand and the Maori culture.  We had a brilliant Haka workshop, where we learnt the traditional dance of the Maori people and cultural stories which have been passed down through generations.
