Welcome to our Year 4 web page – we hope you find all the information you require here.

Weekly activities to support your child’s learning:

  • Daily reading. Please discuss the text with your child, ask questions and sign the home school diary. The book bag must come into school each day.
  • New spellings will go into the home school diaries on Tuesdays to be tested the following Tuesday. Please try and learn a few words with your child each night.
  • Additionally, please try and learn a few words each week from the Year 3/4 word list found at the bottom of this web page.
  • A requirement by the end of Year 4, is for each child to know their times tables up to 12 x 12. Please try to work on a few facts each night.

Week Commencing Monday 26th March 2018

Tuesday 27th March: World Book Day.  Children may dress up as their favourite character from a book. Children will take part in our Reading Award Assembly, enjoy book related activities and use computers to listen to the voices and thoughts of authors.

Wednesday 18th April at 9.15am – Roman Assembly for parents. Please refer to the recent email, which offers suggestions as to how to dress your child for this Assembly. Please bring costumes in to school, in a labelled bag, on Monday 16th April.

ENGLISH:  We will continue to look at different types of Explanation texts. This is in preparation for a non-fiction writing assessment.

DRAMA: We shall be rehearsing for our Year 4 Roman Assembly.

MATHS: Some of our Maths will relate to data provided by ‘Sale Sharks’ and will include problem solving. Work on Shape, Space and Measure continues.

EASTER HOMEWORK: Please complete the My Maths homework which has been set.

ON-GOING HOMEWORK:  We are really keen for the children to become fluent at their times tables and this means regular practise at home and at school. Therefore, we have put some links to multiplication games onto our school website on the Year 4 page, which we would like the children to play in order to increase their fluency.

MUSIC: We shall be singing songs for our Roman Assembly.

P.E: Please make sure your child has a warm P.E kit for outdoor rugby skills on Wednesday morning ( tuition provided by ‘Sale Sharks’).

SCIENCE: We are thinking about the changing states of matter. We continue to look at the process of The Water Cycle.

HISTORY: We shall be learning more about the Romans during our rehearsals for the Roman Assembly. Please refer to the email about costumes.

RE:  We shall be taking part in an internal Key Stage 2 Easter Assembly.

COMPUTING:  We will be using the internet to research the work of authors.

Thank you for yet another lovely term. Thank you for your support of the Roman Workshop, providing materials for the Roman Sandals and providing Roman costumes for the play. We look forward to the start of another wonderful  topic in the Summer Term.

We are always happy to answer any questions or queries that you may have, so please don’t hesitate to contact us.
