Your class teachers are:
Miss Yarnall (Monday-Wednesday) and Miss Attwood (Wednesday - Friday) (4AY)
Miss Floyd (4F).
This year our topics will be:
Out With A Bang! (Volcanoes and The Roman Empire)
Invaders and Settlers (Anglo Saxons, Scots and Vikings)
4F will have PE on Mondays (swimming) and Wednesdays (outdoors).
4AY will have PE on Wednesdays (outdoors) and Fridays (indoors)
Please ensure long hair is tied back and any earrings removed on these days. It is helpful if girls wearing tights have a spare pair of socks in their PE Bags.
Please make sure all of your child's clothing is named, especially jumpers and cardigans which they take off during the day. This is also very important for PE kit when all the children get changed at once
Reading regularly at home is of paramount importance to support your child's development. We recommend 15 minutes each day where practically possible. The more familiar the books are, the more pleasurable reading will be for your child. If they are reading the text with ease (reading like talking), this is absolutely fine as this will develop their fluency and reading speed. Hearing stories regularly (i.e before bedtime), will also develop their skills, as they will hear what storytelling should sound like, whilst exposing them to more advance texts that they are not yet ready to read independently.
Pupil Planners are also Reading Records, and there are lists of Year 4 words to read and spell. Planners must be in school every day as they are used to support your child's learning and record any messages.
Spelling tests are weekly and new spellings are given out at the end of each week
In maths, we are focusing on the 6x, 7x, 9x, 11x and 12x tables whilst revising 1x, 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, 8x and 10x tables that are taught in previous school years. By the end of year 4 it is expected that children know all times tables up to 12 x 12.
Topic homework is set weekly, please refer to the homework booklet in your child's homework book. The homework booklet is also available below.
Family Projects are a fun way for your child to teach you, what they have learned and are learning about in school. Please look out for the family projects set throughout the year and have fun being creative with your child in showcasing their learning.
