Welcome to the Year 4 Class pages for 4M&4H
Here you will find all you need to know about the classes and what we are up to! Make sure you follow us on Twitter (website above) and Seesaw (log ins sent home) to see regular updates on what we have been doing in school and in lessons! In Maths we will focus on Place Value and in our Writing we will begin writing a narrative before looking at a wonderful book as a whole school!
Our topic this term is The Romans and we are very excited to be learning about them all the way up to the Christmas holidays! We will be looking at the impact they had across the world and the legacy they left behind, as well as what roman school and daily life was like! In Science, we will be looking at Electricity: how electrical items work and why it has changed our lives! In PE we will be linking the Romans to our Dance and Movement unit, creating pieces inspired by gladiators, buildings and more!
We will have two PE lessons per week so children need to have their kits in school at all times. PE kits will need to be in school on a Monday, to go home on a Friday for washing. If you would prefer your child's kit to stay in school throughout the half term, then that is fine. Due to the ongoing situation, we are unable to lend children kits and they will be unable to share kits too.
Our planning time is on a two week cycle: Week 1 the children will be let out on a Wednesday by the cover teacher and Week 2 on a Tuesday the children will be let out by Senor Castro.
Our spelling tests will be every Friday. New spellings will be given on Friday to be learnt for the following Friday. The children will have four spelling lessons a week before their spelling test on Friday afternoon so there are plenty of opportunities for lots of practise inside and out of school.
It is vital your child reads as much as possible at home as well in school. Do not worry if your child has brought home a different level to normal, as we want to build confidence before Year 4 objectives. Remember, we have fantastic resources like Bug Club and Reading Eggs which all the children have log ins for and can use at home and will be using in school.
This will go home every Friday on the Homework letter and will consist of spelling words to learn for the following Friday, as well as Maths homework. This could be on MyMaths (the children have log ins) or to continue to learn their target times tables at home and on TTRockstars if they wish. The children will take part in a weekly times tables test and they will be made aware of the times table that they need to work on.
