Year Four

Welcome to year 4

We have had an amazing first couple of weeks back at school. The children are loving being back to a bit more normality, whilst still staying safe and keeping good hygiene.

Information

Meet the teacher – Please attend this meeting to find out about the expectations of year 4, and to find out how you can help your child through this year.

Expectations

Children should read every night.

Children should be practising their multiplication facts regularly. Children have a TT rockstars account which they can find in their reading journal – https://ttrockstars.com/

Children must practice the spellings they are given.

Children should complete homework they are given. (More information about this will be shared at the meet the teacher meeting)

What we are learning this term.

English

In English, we have been reading The Butterfly Lion. It is a really exciting and emotive text that we have enjoyed reading so far. We can’t wait to read what happens next.

Maths

This term we will be learning about multiplication and division and fractions. Children have the opportunity to learn at their own pace, ensuring they make rapid progress each lesson. They have access to a range of resources to help them learn.

Science

This term our science topic is sound. The children are enjoying their experiments which explore how sounds travels and how sounds change depending on the distance between sound sources and their ears.

Music

Children this year are really lucky to not only have a weekly Music lesson with a specialist music teacher, but they will also be learning a new musical instrument – the Ukulele!
