Year 4

            

Hello everyone,

This will be a really exciting half term in Year 4. We have a great topic for our learning challenge as we ask, ‘What did the Romans do for us?’

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 using non-fiction books about the Romans and an historical fiction text (about a boy during the Roman invasion of Britain) to support our learning. There is a wide selection of books for you to read in our class library and you should try to change your school library book at least once a week.

So far in Year 4 there has been a big focus on learning number facts and calculation methods. We will spend the rest of this year ensuring that this knowledge can be used to solve a variety of mathematical problems. Hopefully the weather will be kind to us so that we can do lots of outdoor Active Maths learning.

We will still be having our weekly guitar lessons and will be preparing our playing and singing ready for our visit to the Bridgewater Hall. The Bridgewater Hall is a concert hall in Manchester where we will listen to, and play alongside, the Halle Orchestra.

Remember that 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). For this half term we have specialist teachers here to teach you karate. Remember that for safety reasons, long hair should be tied back, and earrings and other jewellry can not be worn during P.E. lessons.

Homework will be given to you every Friday. You will have spellings to learn and should also keep a learning journal about our topic of Roman Britain. 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 keep working hard and be proud of what you can achieve. You have produced some fantastic work so far this year. Our art display that is currently outside our classroom looks fantastic. Take a look and find your own painting amongst the fantasy worlds.

Parents and carers are welcome to discuss any questions or concerns with me at the beginning or the end of each day.
