Year 4 – Mrs Walker and Mrs Henshall
Happy New Year!
Welcome back to our Spring term! We hope you have had a wonderful Christmas break and are ready to get stuck into some new learning!
PE days – Wednesday & Friday
Year 4 Curriculum
Below are the curriculum flyers for each half term detailing what we will be learning about in each subject. This will help to give you an overview of what your child is learning and support them with this at home. Curriculum flyers will be added half termly.
Please support your child to ‘Strive for 5’ by listening and encouraging your child to read five times a week. This can be either the book that they bring home with them from school, or another reading material they have access to at home. Please make sure that you fill in their reading record when you have listened to them reading as this will be logged each week and counted towards their ‘100 reads’. When this is achieved they will get to choose a book during celebration assembly as a well done for taking responsibility for their reading.
Spellings will be sent home weekly to be learnt by the following week. We will have daily spellings sessions in class it is important that your child does this homework in order to keep up with the sessions we are providing.
Mrs Henshall will also set homework on a Friday that is due in the following week. This is set via Google Classroom. Login details for Google Classroom can be found in your child’s reading log.
Year 4 Multiplication Check
In year 4, the children will take part in a multiplication check. The expectation is that all children in Year 4 should know all of their times tables by the end of the academic year. The multiplication check is an online test were the pupils are asked 25 questions on times tables 2 to 12. For every question they have 6 seconds to answer. This takes place in June. With this in mind, we will have a huge focus on times tables. We ask that your child access DoodleTables regularly to support them in this. Login details can be found in your child’s reading log. We encourage you to support you children at home with their timetables.
A fantastic resource that we will be using in school and can be accessed at home are the BBC Super Movers video. Please find a link below:
PE will take place on Wednesday and Friday. Children should come to school on their PE days in their white PE t-shirt, their school jumper/cardigan and either plain black leggings or plain black jogging bottoms (these can be purchased from local supermarkets and should not be branded).
Children should remember to bring their reading records to school daily.
Children should bring a water bottle daily, this will be sent home at the end of the day to be washed.
The majority of communications between school and parents will be sent by email. Please ensure that you check this regularly.
If you have any questions, feel free to make an appointment or email us directly.
