Year 4

Welcome to Year 4!

 

In year 4 we have three classes.

 

Mr Goodman teaches 4G, Miss Baal teaches 4B and Mr Thomas teaches 4T. Throughout the year, our classes will also be taught by Mrs Wayne, Mrs Lock and Mrs Bennett. Our wonderful TLAs are Miss Hooper and Miss Starkey.

This year we have some fantastic learning themes!

 

Summer term revolves mostly around the amazing Amazon Rainforest. In the first half term, the children will be identifying where rainforests are located, the layers of a rainforest, learning about threats to the rainforest (and writing our own persuasive letters to the Environmental Secretary!) and about tribes who live in the Amazon.
After the half term break, we will be exploring more about the plants and animals in the Amazon. The children will create their own hybrid creature and write non-chronological reports about them!
For P.E. this term, there is no swimming! We will be going back to having PE on Mondays. The children will continue to have PE on their creative days (every other Wednesday).

We will also be continuing with our guitar lessons, taught by Cristian, on Thursdays. Please refer to the timetable below:

Multiplication Check

 

In preparation for the Year 4 multiplication check, happening in June, we have been vigorously practising our times tables in class. We have come across a number of fantastic resources but have found the following sites to be particularly useful:

https://mathsframe.co.uk/en/resources/resource/477/Multiplication-Tables-Check

 

https://www.timestables.co.uk/multiplications-tables-check/

 

It would be fantastic if your child could spend 5-10 minutes a day practising their times tables, as it would really support all of their hard work in class!

 

World Book Day 2019

As part of our World Book Day celebrations this year, we dressed up as our favourite literary characters, or came to school in comfy reading clothes. There were different activities in each class for the children to try - all based on ideas from Roald Dahl books. In 4B, there were disgusting Snozzcumbers from the BFG and the children made some delicious cakes; in 4G they made revolting potions from George's Marvellous Medicine and in 4T the children made Dream Jars from the BFG. Here's a selection of photos to showcase the day:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Spring term revolves mostly around the wonderful writing of Roald Dahl. In the first half term, the children will be delving into the exciting and vibrant world of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Not only will they be creating their very own characters to add to the story, but they will also be involved in the Year 4 Charlie and the Chocolate Factory play at the end of term. Keep an eye out for the script, and auditions will be held soon!
After the half term break, we will be exploring another Roald Dahl classic - The Twits. The children will be writing about their own devious tricks that they will be devising!

 

Autumn term consists of two areas of history: the Victorians and World War 2. So far, the children have enjoyed an interactive workshop with Rainbow Theatre to explore Victorian life and this has resulted in them writing some wonderfully imaginative story settings, inspired by our class text Fair's fair. This half term, we have begun our exciting learning journey all about WW2; exploring how it felt to be evacuated. We will be writing some amazing newspaper reports on historic events and are very excited about being 'evacuated' to Tilford by coach on Thursday 29th November.

Useful Information

 

All Year 4 classes will have PE lessons on Mondays and Wednesdays and will need full PE kits (preferably named!). A gentle reminder that long hair should be tied back, and that no jewellery should be worn, including earrings. When the weather turns colder, the children are allowed to wear tracksuits as we will still be completing lessons outside.

 

This year the children will be learning to play the guitar! They will need to have their guitar (loaned from the school, or their own if they already have one) every Thursday. After their lesson, the children should take their guitars home to practise, bringing them in again the following week.

 

Homework will consist of reading, spellings, timestables, Maths and Home Learning Journal tasks.

Reading expectations: 3 x a week to an adult, signed each time in their reading diaries due every Monday.

Spellings: individual word lists to practise at home with a test every Friday.

Timestables: the children should be becoming more confident with their timestables and learning associated division facts at speed.

Maths: activities will be set on Mathletics and/or Purple Mash, with each child having their own individual log in to access at home.

Home Learning Journals: activities will be set regularly with clear hand-in dates on each task.

 

 

 

The library is open from 8:30 for years 4, 5 and 6.
