Friday 14th July - Spellings and Homework.

This week, please continue to practise the Year 3 and 4 key spellings. You will be tested on them next week, on Tuesday. You do not have specific spellings to learn for your group because you will be tested on all of these words. These are the words you should know by the end of year 4.

Click on this link for all of the key words: 

You also need to know all your times tables up to 12 x 12 by the end of year 4. Keep practising these at home because you will have your final times tables test next week.

Finally, keep working on your mathletics because certificates will be given out for children who have completed lots of the activities!

Well done year 4 for a hard year's work! :)

Your design needs to be in colour on either A4 or A5. Please write your name on the back and either email your design to parents@castelview.slough.sch.uk or drop it in the box in the reception area. The closing date is 9am on Tuesday 6th June.
