Welcome to Year 4!
We hope you had a wonderful Summer break and are ready for the new school year! We are so proud of the way the children have coped during the last academic year. Since returning to school in term 4 the children have quickly adapted back into the different routines at school and have shown great resilience.
In terms 1 and 2 we will be studying our project ‘What was it like to walk like an Egyptian?’ learning all about the Ancient Egyptians and what life was like 5000 years ago.
Medium Term Spring Plan
P.E. for this term will be: Monday am 4JW, Tuesday am 4HW, Thursday am 4DPH.
Homework will be sent out every Friday and should be returned to class by the following Wednesday. Homework will consist of one piece of maths work, one piece of English work, weekly spellings and regular reading at home.
All pupils are encouraged to use the TT Rockstar App as much as possible; just 10 minutes a day can have an impact on their times table knowledge. If there are any problems with the app or you have misplaced a log-in, please let your class teacher know.
We will be reading with the pupils in school on a 1:1 basis and within teacher led groups. Please continue to read regularly with your child at home as it really does improve their attainment and confidence. As well as decoding words it is really beneficial to ask your child questions on what they have read e.g. To work out the definitions of new vocabulary, discuss why a character did or said something, recall an event and what happened. When you have read with your child at home please record this in their reading record as will use a class reward system for those children who have read 3 x a week or more at home.
