Year 4

Teaching Team – Mr M. Ownsworth, Mrs G. Saxelby,
Mrs T. Gabbidon, Mrs C Lawton, Mrs G O’Shea, Mrs H Pollitt,

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 July 2018

ON-GOING HOMEWORK:  We are really keen for the children to become fluent at their times tables and this means regular practice 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. It would really help Year 5 if your children knew all their times tables up to 12 x 12 and can spell the 100 words from the Lower Junior List. Over the holidays, any work on telling the time would be helpful, as well as Maths in context such as measuring.

Music: Thank you for attending our recent recorder concert. The children played really well. We shall be having a fun sing this week in lessons to re- run all our favourite songs from our brilliant topics. We shall also be having a fun musical Assembly, which will showcase the Choir.

Sadly, we have to say goodbye to Mrs Bexon after twenty five years of loyal service to school music. Thank you to everyone who has contributed to her leaving gift and for all your good wishes and support of Mrs Bexon over the years.This has been a very special period in the life of the school.

Maths: We shall be making Mystic Roses and having our final few lessons carrying out investigations and fun games and celebrating our good work.

Books: Books from Year 4 will be sent home on Monday 23rd July, so a large plastic bag would be useful on Monday, please.

Homework: There will be no further formal homework in Year 4, but at the top of this page are suggestions that would help your child prepare for September. Your Child’s new Year 5 teacher will be sending out a piece of holiday homework to be completed by September.

English: There will be a final spelling lesson on Tuesday and an opportunity to finish ‘The Iron Man’ topic.

P.E: We shall be having our final cricket and ’rounders’ lessons on Wednesday 25th July when P.E kits will be sent home for the holidays.

PSHE: Guest Leaders will be providing a follow up- session about ‘Health and Well- being’ on Wednesday 25th July. We shall also be discussing the theme of ‘Change’.

Fun: As a treat, your child will be permitted to bring in an inexpensive  board game from home to share with their friends. Please do not send in any electronic games.

Tidying: Trays and the cloakrooms will be emptied on Thursday 26th July when we shall try and give back any named lost property to the children.

Thank you for a lovely year with your children and for your positive feedback from your child’s report. Your approval and appreciation is very much valued.

The children have coped really well with the hot weather and we are really proud of them. We hope you all have a lovely holiday.

Best Wishes from all of us in Year 4 and a huge thank you to our fantastic Teaching Assistants who have made the quality your children have received, possible.

September: Please line up on the Junior Playground near the automatic doors to meet your child’s new Year 5 teacher.

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