This will be a really exciting half term in Year 4. We have a great topic for our learning challenge as we ask, ‘How could we manage without electricity?”
As a whole school, we are focusing on reading and improving the range of vocabulary that children understand and use. In Year 4 we will be focusing on a fantastic book that is linked to our learning challenge – Frankenstein!
If you haven’t had a chance to see our fantastic new school library, then please come and look around. We think it is the perfect place to get comfy and lost in a book! There is also a wide selection of books for you to read in our class library. Children will be given books to take home and share a reading experience with the family which they can change when they are ready for their next adventure! You should try to change your school library book at least once a week.
During this term in Math, we will be focusing on place value, addition and subtraction and shape. In English, we will be looking at different types of stories, recounts and reports
We will be having weekly guitar lessons every Tuesday as a class we will have lots of fun while we learn how to play the guitar.
Our P.E. lessons are on Monday and Wednesday. You should check that you have everything you need for P.E. lessons (a T-shirt, shorts or leggings and pumps). We are very lucky because our P.E lessons are ran by our P.E specialist, Miss Plant. Remember that for safety reasons, long hair should be tied back, and earrings and other jewellery can not be worn during P.E. lessons.
Homework will be given to you every Friday. You will have spellings to learn and various pieces of homework for our other subjects. You should also try to read for at least 10 minutes every evening and keep practising your times tables and other number facts.
I expect everyone to working hard and be proud of what we can achieve. So far you have made a fantastic start to Year 4 and I’m looking forward to the year ahead!
