Please click on the link below to access the curriculum leaflet that details all our learning for this half term. Our topic title is "The Art of Food".
In Year 4, P.E. is on Monday and Wednesday. Please ensure your child has a full kit in school.
P.E. kit (indoor): Black/navy shorts, white t-shirt and black pumps.
Outdoor kit (optional): Tracksuit/long sleeved top and trainers and socks.
All clothing and footwear should be clearly named. All jewellery must be removed for P.E. and long hair must be tied back.
We will also be swimming this term on alternate Wednesdays. The dates have been sent out on a letter and are also on the curriculum leaflet (above).
Y4's homework rota is as follows:
Your child has a home reading book and record. Please hear your child read at home on a regular basis (ideally 5-10 minutes every day). When your child has finished their book, they need to hand it in to Miss Mitchell or Mrs Layfield who will change it. They are given this opportunity daily. The expectation is to read one book every week.
Please encourage your child to learn all of the times tables (up to 12x12) and their related division facts. This will help your child in several aspects of mathematics. All children have been give a login for Times Table Rock Stars!
Year 4 spellings will now be done mainly in school through the 'No Nonsense Spelling' scheme. However, it is essential that your child is confident at spelling basic, high frequency words and words with rules/patterns. These will be stuck into homework books for children to learn at home. They will be given out and tested on a Friday.
A "learning log" will be set each half term. This will be a project or piece of work for the children to complete at home. If you wish to help them and be involved, that's great! Alternatively, the children can complete it independently. It will be sent home in the first week or two of the half term.
Macmillan Coffee Morning
The Macmillan Coffee Morning hosted by Year 4 last half term was a huge success. Thank you for all contributions of cakes and for your generous donations of money to the charity. A great time was had by all! We managed to raise an ENORMOUS £589.41 for Macmillan. Well done Year 4 and thank you everybody once again.
Please see the table below for topics and subjects covered in each half term.
