Love to Learn, Together with the Lord
Welcome to Year 4!
In Year 4 we celebrate each and every child and everything they achieve!
Our classroom is a nurturing, safe and positive environment where we support each other through encouragement, praise and being a team. As a result, each child tries their best and develops a resilient attitude towards learning where they are willing to have a go and to never give up.
We have lots of exciting topics this year and some fantastic texts to read!
Class teacher: Miss J Platt and Mrs D Mellor
Teaching Assistant: Mrs D Eades and Mrs J Tootell
In Year 4, we encourage children to read every day. Studies show that children make more progress when they complete regular reading at school and at home.
Reading books should be in school every day, so that children can read to an adult in school and we will change books on a Tuesday and a Friday. However we will try and change if your child finishes a book and asks for it to be changed or if this is not possible, please read an alternative book from home.
Spellings are handed out in class and posted on Spelling Frame every Monday. Please support your child in practising their spellings, in preparation for their spelling test every Friday.
Multiplication is a vital part of the curriculum in Year 4. These are practised in class each day. Children are encouraged to practise their times tables each day at home on TT Rockstars, this is a great tool to assist your child in learning and remembering their times tables. Other methods are also encouraged.
This year we are concentrating on improving handwriting and so each week children will bring home a handwriting sheet for them to complete. These will be their spellings for the week.
P.E. this half-term is on a Tuesday and Friday. Children need to come in to school in their full kit on these days. Please ensure that children have removed earrings on these days and that long hair is tied up.
We use Seesaw to share our hard work and learning in the classroom. We also encourage parents to share their children's learning and experiences from home.
