Year 4 will also be completing a mock times tables test.
Please follow the timetable below for the week.
Complete 10 rounds of studio on times tables rockstars. Children will need to complete 25 questions and get them all correct with a time limit of 3-6 seconds for each question.
In the autumn term we wrote our own mystery stories. Using the picture below as your stimulus I would like you to write a story, showcasing all of the new writing techniques you have learnt about in Year 4 so far.
How do we know about the past?
Research about the famous monk, St Bede (AD 673–735). Discover why he is such an important historical figure. Use a selection of source materials to find out about him and develop a character profile about him and his work. Widely regarded as the greatest Anglo-Saxon scholar, St Bede wrote about 40 books. His most detailed account is from AD 730, 300 years after the Saxon invasions began. Many modern-day schools and churches are named after him.
Activity: Create a prayer service on the theme of St. Bede. Bede was moreover a skilled linguist and translator, and his work made the Latin and Greek writings of the early Church Fathers much more accessible to his fellow Anglo-Saxons, which contributed significantly to English Christianity.

(Rights and Responsibilities – link to St. Bede’s responsibility to accurately translate/record historical documents)
The Catholic tradition teaches that human dignity can be protected and a healthy community can be achieved only if human rights are protected and responsibilities are met. Therefore, every person has a fundamental right to life and a right to those things required for human decency. Corresponding to these rights are duties and responsibilities--to one another, to our families, and to the larger society.
Faith without works is dead.
