If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask one of the Year 4 team.
In Lower Key Stage Two, we expect children to read 5 times a week and bring their reading book into school every day. Weekly spellings will be given out on a Monday to be assessed on the Friday of that week. Your class teacher will also provide a weekly Seesaw task relating to any area of the curriculum. For example, children may be expected to complete an activity relating to learning in Arts, Humanities, R.E, Spanish, Science and Wellbeing. The tasks will vary each week. Please check your child's Seesaw page for more details.
At the end of Year 4, all children are assessed on their times table facts. You can find more information here. We expect children to be practising their times table on TTRockstars at least twice a week. Their log in details should be glued in their Reading Record. https://play.ttrockstars.com/auth/school/student
Our P.E. day is Tuesday.
A gentle reminder that our school P.E. kit is a plain white t-shirt, black shorts and black pumps or trainers for outdoor sports, without visible branding. Children can come to school dressed in their PE kit, as long as it is the proper PE uniform. Otherwise, they will need to bring it in a separate bag.
4S and 4H go swimming every Tuesday morning and 4B go every Wednesday morning. Please make sure your child has swimming trunks / swimming costume, towel and a swimming hat with them.
Water bottles and snacks
Don't forget to bring a water bottle and healthy snacks to school each day - it is important for children to stay hydrated throughout the day. Please label bottles and refill them each day.
Children are welcome to bring a healthy snack such as fruit and vegetables to school each day for snack time. Bread sticks and milk can be purchased at the start of each half-term (please speak to the school office about this).
Our focus this half term is number and place value. We will be focusing on children knowing the value of each digit within a number. We will be identifying thousands, hundreds, tens and ones moving on to problem solving and reasoning challenges. The small steps to success can be found on the Maths curriculum page.
Our shared reading text in class for this half term is: The BFG by Roald Dahl.
We will exploring this text through daily reading practise and will answer comprehension questions on a Friday to ensure we have fully understood what has been read.
In writing, we will be focusing on using a variety of suitable language features, while continuing to look at a range of texts. We will also be looking at non fiction facts files, poetry and letter writing.
