In this topic we will be looking at the gifts of the Holy Spirit and how we can use these in our lives. 

In PENTECOST 2, our topics will be:

BUILDING BRIDGES

Extra-Ordo-Nary 

Each week we think about and reflect on the theme from the NDCYS Extra-Ordo-Nary.  We also look at the feast days and special liturgical days we will be celebrating that week.  All of the Extra-Ordo-Nary documents for this year can be found below.  

Our Whole Class reading book this Half Term is ''The Girl Who Stole an Elephant' and our Reading for Pleasure book is 'Thief!', soon to be followed by 'The Accidental Prime Minister'.

MATHS:

At the end of Year 4, the children will have a multiplication tables check. 

The multiplication tables check (MTC) is statutory for primary schools in the 2021/22 academic year.

The purpose of the MTC is to determine whether pupils can recall their times tables fluently, which is essential for future success in mathematics. It will help schools to identify pupils who have not yet mastered their times tables, so that additional support can be provided. 

Schools will have a 3-week check window in June to administer the MTC. Teachers will have the flexibility to administer the check to individual pupils, small groups or a whole class at the same time.

To help prepare for this, the children are doing weekly practice tests in class. At home, children should be practicing their times tables regularly on TimesTable Rockstars.
