Welcome to Year 4
Our teachers are Mrs Johnson in 4L, Mr Murray in 4P and Miss Coombs-Taylor 4T. Mrs Harvey, Mrs Shiva, Mrs Hussain and Mrs Maqsood work with us too. We are also very lucky to have a student teacher working with us this year, Mr Hall, working mostly in 4T.
This term our topic is Invaders and Settlers where we learn about the Anglo Saxon and Viking struggle for the kingdom of England. Please see the overview below for more details.
This half term the children will have PE on a Tuesday afternoon. Tuesday's session will be outside (weather permitting). Please make sure your child has the correct kits for these sessions in school, including trainers. It would also be very helpful if each item of kit was labelled with their name. Unless this gets very dirty, we will send kit home at the end of each half term. Swimming is Thursday afternoons. Please send a permission note if you are happy for your chil to wear goggles.
Reading, Homework and Spellings
Although guided reading takes place in school regularly, it is important that your child reads a wide range of texts at home. Children should bring their reading books in a book bag to school each day, along with their Year 4 planner which can be filled in by you regularly.
By the end of year 4 your child should know all their times tables up to 12 x 12. Regular practise is the key to success! Below is a list of useful websites for supporting your child with this along with other links for reinforcing other aspects of maths covered this term. Each child also has their own account set up on timestables rockstars. This is a fun way to practice the timestables and can be played at any time throughout the week.
Maths homework is set via MyMaths every Thursday and is selected to reinforce classwork. Once a half term your child will be set an additional piece of homework in their homework book. Spelling homework is set every Monday in your child's homework book. Please encourage your child to complete their homework on time.
