Happy April Fool's Day! I wonder if any of you managed to fool your parents?!
I hope you are all managing to look at our class web page. If you are checking daily, you will see that yesterday, I posted some leader boards for TTRS.
THE BATTLE BEGINS!
I have set up a boys v girls tournament, starting tomorrow morning and lasting for ONE WEEK! Now, I can see that the boys have been working more on TTRS as it stands, however, girls, now is your chance to beat them!
GOOD LUCK EVERYBODY!

Happy Tuesday Year 4.
I've been doing some spying on your TT Rock Stars activity over the last week and have some statistics for you. I'm going to write three leader boards below which show the top 6 pupils:
Most improved player over the last 7 days.
Highest earner over the last 7 days (people who have played on TTRS the most).
Overall leader board (fastest rock speed).
Overall leader board
Well done to everybody who has been working hard on TTRS - it really does prove that practice makes perfect! Keep your eye open over the next few days for a BOYS v GIRLS battle.
I miss you all.
Monday 30th March
Good morning Year 4. I hope you all had a lovely weekend and had a break from "school work". I don't know about you, but my legs are hurting from doing the PE lessons with Joe Wicks all week!
I'm attaching the work for week 2 below. Please try to make sure you do some maths and English every day, along with another activity and remember to keep active in whatever way you can!
Friday 27th March
Sorry that this is coming to you late! I was in school all day on Friday and then my computer hasn't been working properly over the weekend. Mr Gane managed to help me via FaceTime!
Thursday 26th March
Hello Year 4. Sorry I'm writing this later today. I've had a busy day in school! I'm really pleased to see (after monitoring TTRS) that so many of you have been on this week. What a great attitude - I'm extremely proud of you.
I've just been to my front door to clap in appreciation for the NHS and Key Workers - hope you did too.
Now, I want to let you know about something in advance of tomorrow because I think you'll like it.... If you are at home with an adult, ask if you are allowed to join in with "A virtual zoo day at Chester Zoo" which is through Facebook. It starts at 10am and finishes at 4:30pm. There's lots of animals to see live, including pandas, elephants, penguins and many more!
Wednesday 25th March
Today, I've been working at home and have found myself singing a lot. It made me think of how much we were enjoying our music lessons. So, I'd like you to listen to the next song that we would have been listening to in school. (You should be able to find it on Youtube or Spotify, etc.) It's called "The Winner Takes It All" and is another pop song by ABBA. It was released in 1980 (bit of quick maths - How long ago is that?) and the song is a ballad reflecting the end of a romance . As you listen, see if you can answer the following questions:
What can you hear?
What is the style of this music?
How is the song put together?
Join in if you can!
Tuesday 24th March
Happy Tuesday! What a lovely, sunny day. Hope you manage to get some time in your yards/gardens to enjoy the sun. David Walliams (author) is releasing a FREE audio book every day and knowing how much you all love reading, I thought you might like to listen. I'll try to put a link below, or just google "Elevenses with The World of David Walliams" and you should get there.
As it's Tuesday, Mrs Roscoe has a special message for you:
Good morning Year 4. Hope you're all ok and keeping busy, keeping learning and keeping well. Sorry I didn't get to see you last week - I missed you! Mrs Roscoe
Monday 23rd March
Hi Year 4. It's Miss Mitchell here! I'm missing you all so much already.
For those of you who are working at home, I'm going to share the Robin Hood weekly learning overviews (these should appear below, each week).
We are also doing a daily workout in school with Joe Wicks through YouTube so I'll put a link to that too, or if you go to YouTube and type "PE with Joe", you should find it. It lasts about 30 minutes. Great way to wake yourself up in a morning! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rz0go1pTda8
Other than that, remember to keep up with TTRS and your reading! Please keep practising your handwriting too because you were working at such a high standard. If any of you do some work at home that you'd like to share on our class web page, please feel free to email it to firstname.lastname@example.org and Mrs Ford can forward it to me.
Keep smiling and keep trying your best. Your best is always good enough for me.
Welcome to Year 4's class page. Here you will find information and details about our learning, the curriculum, news and photographs. Enjoy!
Meet the Year 4 Team
Miss Mitchell (Class Teacher)
Mrs Roscoe (Teacher - Tuesdays)
Mrs Green (PPA cover Friday afternoons)
Mrs Layfield & Miss Emma (Teaching Assistants)
Mr Smart (PE)
Please click on the link below to access the curriculum leaflet that details all our learning for this half term. Our topic title is "Passport to Europe".
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.
