Year 4

Welcome to Year 4!

 

In Year 4, our teachers are Miss Lines and Miss Saunders and our TAs are Miss Lorandeau, Mrs Filby and Mr Ellis.

Our wonderful HLTA is Mrs Barker.

 

Please scroll down for this term's Home Learning.

 

Our Summer Term topic is....

ANCIENT GREECE!

 

We will be learning all about Ancient Greece and how the Empire grew. We will also learn about the inventions we gained from them, the Olympics and Greek Art looking at Greek vases and buildings. Our English learning will allow us to learn about the exciting myths and legends! We will also investigate electricity and sound in science and use the learning on sound in our music. 

 

 

 

 

Maths

By the end of Year 4 we aim for children to be secure with all their times tables. You could use these websites below to practise these:

www.ttrockstars.com

www.multiplication.com

We have a competition running for all children in years 2-6, which aims to improve the children's times tables knowledge using the Times Tables Rockstars website. Each week, the child with the highest correct answers in their class will be awarded with a certificate, which will be displayed on our Rockstars board. At the end of the week, they will be able to bring their certificate home.  

 

You could also use mathletics to practise all other areas of maths!

Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural in Year 4

  • At the beginning of last term, we were busy voting for this years School Councillors and Sports Ambassadors. To ensure democracy children anonymously voted in their class 'ballot'. 
  • Our School Council members hold meetings every fortnight in classes to raise issues that we would like discussed at the whole School Council meetings, an excellent opportunity for our pupil voice to be heard. 
  • Eco-committee members from Year 4 have been busy working with Mrs Biggs and Mr Kenworthy to ensure our school is a eco-friendly as possible.
  • On Wednesday 30th October, Mrs Biggs and the eco-committee were pleased to announce they have secured the Eco-Schools Award yet again! Well done all! 
  • The Year 4 Sports Ambassadors encourage us all to take part in exercise each day - sometimes they even help to take warm-ups and cool downs in our PE lessons! In the last month, they have been busy discussing the Rugby World Cup and completing activities with their class.
  • In the Spring term, children will complete their 'Time to Talk' where they share something they are interested in with the rest of their class and the alternate Year 4 class. A reminder sticker will be put in your child's yellow log. Home learning will not be expected from them in their presenting week. Parents and carers will also be invited to join us when their child is presenting. 
  • Our topic work this term links well with cultural learning as we discover life in other areas of the planet and how our actions affect animals and humans all over the globe.

Home Learning

We understand that at times it can be tricky to print any final test scores from the Times Tables Check from https://mathsframe.co.uk/en/resources/resource/477/Multiplication-Tables-Check. However it is important that any reading or times tables that your child completes is recorded in their home reading logs. Please also remember there is Home Learning Club every Tuesday from 12:30pm in Miss Edward's classroom. 

 

Year 4 Arithmetic
 

We are aware that some of the children have been finding the current arithmetic questions a little tricky so far. These questions are aimed at quizzing children on concepts taught across the whole of Year 4 and therefore, there may be some questions, which we have not covered in class so far. If children are finding certain concepts tricky, then they can choose to leave these questions until taught, parents can use the calculation policy to help demonstrate the best method to solve this particular question or they can find some time with their teacher to help in certain areas.

 

We have also added in some Year 3 arithmetic tests, which children could have a go at if they are finding the Year 4 ones too tricky at this moment in time.
