Welcome to the web page for 4HW. Please take time to look around the school’s website for key information. Also, make sure that you visit this page as often as possible as it is here that you will be able to view what your child is doing in school each week and every term via the Class Blog that appears below.
Below you will also find important information about your child’s PE slot as well as advice about reading at home.
PE for 4HW is scheduled for each Tuesday afternoon and it is therefore essential that your child has their PE in school on this occasion. It is also important that each item of PE kit is clearly labelled with your child’s name in case things get lost.
Reading at Home
Reading at home is essential for your child to make the progress necessary with their school work. Your child will have a Reading Record Book that they bring home each night. If they read to you or another adult, or to themselves, please sign the Record Book to say this has happened. They will then get credits at school towards a range of reading certificates that they will receive in assembly.

In English, we have been drafting a range of different short stories, working hard to use: more powerful language (similes, metaphors, personification, expanded noun phrases and WOW words); starting sentences with fronted adverbials; using a wider range of conjunctions; and including embedded clauses. This week, we have begun to explore the features of poetry.
In Maths, we have been continuing our learning of multiplication and division, particularly our mental and written methods. We have applied these strategies to solving tricky word problems. It would be of benefit to the children to discuss how we use multiplication and division in their lives out of school.
Florida has been the main focus of our Creative Curriculum lessons, where we have been finding out more about horrendous hurricanes and ferocious floods. Through research, we are starting to compare animals which live in the Everglades to those who live in the English Marshes.
In Science, we have been exploring how sound is made through vibrations.
