Year Four

Welcome to Year 4. Our class teachers are Mrs Ferrell, Miss Clarke and Mrs Lees.

 

In Year 4 we will be starting off the term with an exciting visit to the seaside. Children will get the chance to go crabbing, have a picnic, eat an ice cream and build sandcastles.

 

In maths this term, our skills focus will be adding and subtracting 9 and 11 mentally, recalling multiplication and division facts for all tables up to 12 x 12 and multiplying and dividing whole numbers by 10 and 100. This will form the basis of maths homework. We will continue to consolidate our understanding of the four operations of number within maths lessons as well as covering time, statistics and shape. In English we will be covering various text types and developing our skills as writers. The children will be writing stories and non-chronological reports. Reading continues to play an important role in our learning and we hope to broaden the children's experience of authors and genres. We are extremely lucky to be having visits from two authors this term, James Mayhew (author of Katie in London) and Matt Brown (author of The Compton Valance series of books).

 

Our science this term is electricity and after half term we will be investigating states of matter.

 

*Year 4 will have PE every Monday and Wednesday (please make sure kit is named).

 

*Year 4 will bring homework home on a Friday that will be due back by Wednesday.

*Spelling tests will take place on Wednesdays.

 

*In Year 4 children are expected to read every day and record this in their planners. Children of this age may well be fluent and competent readers, but still need to read aloud to others regularly. Children will move round the reading reward chart, which will work towards a reward at the end of the year.

 

Of course, we are extremely excited about our amazing visit to London on the 24th, 25th and 26th of June! We can’t wait!
