Love to Learn, Together with the Lord

Year 4

 

Welcome to Year 4! 

In Year 4 we celebrate each and every child!

Our classroom is a safe and positive environment where we encourage and praise. We ask is that every 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!

Reading

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. We will try and change finished books the same day, however if this is not possible, please read an alternative book from home. 

 

Spellings

Spellings are handed out in class and posted on Seesaw every Monday. Please support your child in practising their spellings, in preparation for their spelling test every Thursday. 

 

Multiplication

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.

 

Handwriting

This year we are concentrating on improving handwriting and so each week children will bring home a handwriting sheet for them to complete.

 

P.E.

P.E. this half-term is on a Monday and Wednesday. It is essential that children have their full school P.E. kit in school on these days in order to take part. Please ensure that children have removed earrings on these days and that long hair is tied up.

 

Seesaw

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.

 

Author of the term

Each term, to encourage the children's love of reading, we will be finding out about a new author and exploring some of their books. You will find out focus author for this term below, along with some of their books and links to webpages to share with your children to find out more about our author.
