Believe and Achieve

Year 4

Where Learning is FUN and ENJOYABLE!

 

Year 4’s teacher is Miss Snowdon and she wants every child in her class to develop a love for learning and achieve the best they can! In class 4 we will become amazing writers, mathematicians, scientists and individuals!

Key Dates

This half-term we have some key dates coming up:

 

 

Literacy

This year we will write letters, diaries, stories, newspaper reports, poems and lots more! In class 4 we also love reading books, either in the classroom or in our new library to promote reading for pleasure.

Topic News

We cover some incredibly exciting topics in year 4, including the blue abyss, stone age and the make a difference challenge (a new and exciting enterprise project). Our topics always start with a memorable experience and so far we have been to The Blue Reef Aquarium and the Great North Museum. Our topic links to the writing we do in literacy lessons, so as you can imagine, we write about some pretty fascinating things! We have computing lessons once a week and this is also linked to our topic.

 

Maths

This half-term we are focusing on fraction, geometry, symmetry and times tables. The year 4 children LOVE their maths lessons and are proud of the work they produce and the progress they are making!

Homework

  • Homework is given out on a Friday and is due in on a Tuesday.
  • Make sure you read at home every night for at least 10 minutes and get it signed at least three times a week (if you have lost or forgotten your reading record you can always download one from this link Red Hall Reading Record
  • Children must know all of their times tables by the end of year 4 so keep practising every week!
  • Spellings are given out as part of homework and children are tested on a Wednesday. It is extremely important that children are pracitsing their spelling at home.

How your child is learning at home is very important to us. If you have any questions or concerns please come and speak to us.
