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 23rd April 2018

ENGLISH:  We will begin reading the first Chapter of Ted Hughes’ amazing book, ‘The Iron Man’. We will focus on fronted adverbials and prepositions in our grammar work. Homework will be sent out on Friday 27th April, to be returned on Wednesday 2nd May. The task will be based on a description of a seascape and has similarities with the opening setting of ‘The Iron Man’.

MATHS: We return to the topic of Place Value, adding and subtracting four digit numbers, rounding to the nearest multiple of ten, one hundred or one thousand, and counting on and back in steps of twenty five and one thousand.

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 working hard at new notes and pieces, so that we are ready to perform to you in our Summer Term Year 4 Recorder Concert on Wednesday 11th July at 9.10 a.m. in the school hall. Please make a note of this in your diaries.

P.E: Please make sure your child has a warm P.E kit for outdoor PE on Friday afternoon and an indoor P.E kit for a Wednesday afternoon.

SCIENCE: We shall be analysing real- time data from the Year 4 Weather Station.

GEOGRAPHY:  We will using this website http://www.raintoday.co.uk/ to analyse and compare rainfall in different areas and writing in the style of a weather reporter.

RE:  We will ask: “How can the Bible help people if they are tempted to do wrong things?”

COMPUTING:  We will be ‘Bringing Images to Life’, by studying the format of images. We will look at how editing took place in the early days before computers.

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