Welcome to the Year 4 Class Page.
We are delighted to be working with your children again this year and have many exciting learning opportunities and activities coming up.
Mornings are focussed on maths, reading and writing, and we take on the Mile Challenge too.
Afternoons are jam-packed with history, geography, science, Religious Education, PE, music, Spanish and PSHE (Personal, Social and Health Education).
PE is on Fridays (outdoors weather permitting) and it is advised that children bring kit and leave it in school until the half term holidays. It is essential children change for health and safety reasons.
If you ever have any questions about school or your child’s learning please come in to have a chat, we are always very happy to help.
In addition to whole class Guided Reading, we use Accelerated Reader daily to focus children on regular reading. When a child completes a book they are expected to answer quiz questions on line about the book they have read. Children access this at home by using the following link Accelerated Reader Don’t forget the chance for your child to earn a raffle ticket for the weekly book draw by reading to a parent or carer 5 times!
Literacy lesson offer a wealth of opportunity to write in a variety of different styles and features, from short stories to instruction writing.
Mrs Webber focuses on grammar, punctuation and spelling on Thursdays and Fridays and although we are not planning to send whole class spellings home to learn on a weekly basis, we will still be investigating spelling pattern and improving our skills in this area.
Our RE lessons this year will cover both Christianity and Hinduism.
