Welcome to Year 4!
Miss Jeffrey, Mrs Richman, Mrs Hewitson and Miss Gillet
Year 4 had a super first half term and Miss Jeffrey is excited to see what this half term brings!
This half term's topic is WATER and Year 4 will be exploring it's exciting properties, role in the water cycle and using it as inspiration for their own fantasy story!
We are continuing to master our times table skills through identifying patterns in the times tables, playing strategy games and exploring times table puzzles.
We have started this half term's whole class guided reading book of 'Magic Actors' and are continuing to increase our vocabulary and inference skills.
English, Maths and Times Tables are taught daily.
Banded books will be changed as and when required, these books will be at the level your child is reading at. You can help your child by reading with them and asking them about what is happening in the book - pleasure ensure this is signed and returned to school everyday.
Please practice times tables and mental calculations at home with your child, this will help them as your child progresses in their mathematical learning. Look on the Maths link to find some very useful links. We aim to know all of our tables in Year 4.
Our PE day is Monday - please make sure your child has their white P.E t-shirt, shorts and black pumps for this.
Golden time is on a Friday afternoon.
Homework will be sent out on a Friday and is due back the following Friday
Each week it will alternate between My Maths homework and a comprehension.
Spellings and Times Tables will be sent out on Friday and will be tested on the following Friday.
If there is anything that you would like to ask or any concerns you may have, please feel free to see Miss Jeffrey after school.
The links below are to help your child with their learning at home.
We often use these resources in class so your child will be familiar with how they work.
Hit the button is great for times table practice ready for the test on Fridays.
