Believe and Achieve

Year 4

We keep going. We keep growing.

In Year 4, our class teacher is Miss McMullen and our teaching assistant is Miss Johnson.  We try our best in everything we do and make sure we have fun along the way. We understand it’s OK to make mistakes, as they help us to learn. We challenge ourselves, and feel proud of the work we produce.

I believe in every single one of the children in Year 4 and I will do my absolute best to help them to achieve everything I know they are capable of. If you have any queries regarding how your child is learning at home, don’t hesitate to email the school, or chat to me at the end of the day and I will help the best I can. Miss McMullen.

Literacy

This half term we are looking at writing a formal letter, a meeting story and character descriptions! We love writing for different purposes, and including amazing features. In class 4, we love reading books - both for learning and for pleasure - we read a novel as a whole class and read independently, either in the classroom, in the reading corner or in our brand new Lower Key Stage 2 library.

 

Topic

We cover some incredibly exciting topics in Year 4, and we always take into account what the children want to learn about. This term we are looking at Fair Trade food, where it comes from and how it is produced. Then we will be investigating Volcanoes, what they do and how they affect people. Keep a look out for information regarding our exciting trips throughout the year!

 

Maths

This half term we are focusing on multiplication, division and decimals! We love our maths lessons in Year 4, we always push ourselves to a challenge and are proud of the work we produce and progress we make. We also have a times tables test at the end of the year, so we are constantly learning and practicing our times tables so we are prepared.
