Year 4 2018 - 2019

Welcome to our Year 4 class page.

Our team

Teachers: Mrs L. Kelly and Mr G. Twigg

Teaching Assistants: Mrs K. Lewis, Miss Wheatley, Mrs Khatun

English

To improve the children's reading and comprehension skills, it is also important for the children to read every night. Could we please ask parents/carers to sign the children's Communication Diaries, so that we can evaluate how often the children read (they earn an extra smilie for reading 5 times each week). Children achieving this, will have a greater chance of gaining their Gold Award. It is important for the children to be asked questions about the text they are reading, to help build their inference and comprehension skills. The children also really enjoy listening to stories.

 

The children are given a spelling activity every Friday and are expected to complete it by the following Friday. This activity is to help children learn spelling patterns that they can apply to their everyday writing. New words appropriate to their year group will be taught in spelling sessions in school.

 

This half term the children's English writing will be centred on the book Pugs of the Frozen North by Philip Reeve and Sarah McIntyre.

Maths

Currently the children are focusing on fractions. This involves finding equivalents, finding a fraction of an amount and adding and subtracting fraction. They will also begin to improve their knoweldge of telling the time. The children will also continue to play some multiplication games to improve their knowledge of times tables .

Science

Our science focus is Living Things and their Habitats.

CoJo (History and Geography) - The Vikings

Our focus for this term will be on Leif Erikson and his adventures.

RE

The children are currently looking at baptism and will be studying some fesitivals including Easter after half term.
