East Acton Primary School "Growing Together"

Year 4 Hawthorn

Welcome to Year 4 Hawthorn's class page. 


This term our topic is: Recycling and being environmentally friendly

Over the course of this term the children will be learning will linked to what we learnt about Acton's past but with an eye towards the future. We will be looking at how Acton supports recycling, buses and cycling. From that we will then move towards making improvements to the facilities already in place and redesign Acton. 


Here is a fantastic link to look at our local area and see how it is made up. Can you spot any of these things on the map:

- The school

- The swimming pool

- The park

- Train stations

Golden Leaf of the Week

This week the amazing___________________________ has won the golden leaf for ___________________________. 




Over the coming weeks will be looking at: Time


The focus will on digital and analogue and converting between the two. 

We have been learning how to write time in words, on clock faces and digitally. 




Over the coming weeks we will be looking at: Matilda 


The children will be reading Matilda by Roald Dahl. 


Matilda is a little girl who is far too good to be true. At age five-and-a-half she's knocking off double-digit multiplication problems and blitz-reading Dickens. Even more remarkably, her classmates love her even though she's a super-nerd and the teacher's pet. But everything is not perfect in Matilda's world. For starters she has two of the most idiotic, self-centered parents who ever lived. Then there's the large, busty nightmare of a school principal, Miss ("The") Trunchbull, a former hammer-throwing champion who flings children at will and is approximately as sympathetic as a bulldozer. Fortunately for Matilda, she has the inner resources to deal with such annoyances: astonishing intelligence, saintly patience, and an innate predilection for revenge.




Each week the children will be given spellings, reading and work linked to what we have been learning in Math in the week. Please can you ensure that you are writing in the reading records to show that you have heard your child read. Also it is important that the children complete their homework, if you have have any issues with the homework please come and see me on Monday or Tuesday so I can support you. 


Please watch these videos for Maths as we have been looking at measures this week and converting between g to kg, m to km and seconds to minutes.


Please play this fun game at home with your child.


We will be having PE on a Thursday afternoon. Could you please ensure that your children have the correct PE kit and it is clearly all names in a named bag. It is really important that the children stay hydrated so could you also please give your child a water bottle that is name.
