Year 4

Welcome to Year 4's class page!

Please see the information below about our Year 4 classes - we hope you find it helpful.

 

Year 4 Team:

Mrs Townsend will teach the children in 4RT and Miss Airey will teach the children in 4DA. On Wednesday mornings, the children will be taught by Mrs Aitchison and Mr Kydd who will teach religious education and music. We are also very lucky to have Mrs Doyle, Ms Brown and Mrs Allen in class supporting the children’s learning.

 

Reading:

Reading continues to be vitally important this year, so your support with listening to your child read at home and sharing books with them as regularly as possible, is very much appreciated. Reading a range of material and genres is also important so they might enjoy magazines, newspapers and comics as well as fiction and non-fiction books. Please remember to record any reading the children do at home in their Reading Diary, which should be brought into school each day. Remember to also ask your child questions about what they have read using the content domains on their reading bookmarks. Please ask for a replacement bookmark if your child has misplaced this.

 

Homework:

Homework will continue to be set each Friday, and due on the following Friday. Homework will be closely linked to learning done in class and it is expected that all pupils complete homework each week. This will help to consolidate learning in class.

  • Reading: Children are expected to read to an adult 3 times per week and 2 times independently. This should be recorded in their Reading Diary. Reading Diaries will be checked on a Friday morning.
  • Spellings: Children will be given a spelling list each week. This will consist of a new spelling pattern or rule and 4 – 6 personalised ‘coloured words’ which are from the Year 4 common exception word list. They should practise their spellings at home. Little and often is usually the best way to learn spellings, throughout the week. Spelling tests will be on Fridays and the children need to bring in their spelling test book for this.
  • Times Tables Rockstars: By the end of Year 4, children should be able to recall their times table facts up to 12 x 12 fluently. Ongoing learning of times tables is vital, it will also support learning across all other areas of maths. Children should log into their TTRS account as often as possible. Each week, 4 sound check sessions, which mimic the times table test they will sit in the Summer, need to be completed in order for the children to access the other areas of TTRS.
  • Maths: My Maths activities will be set each week. These will be set from Friday and should be completed before the following Friday.

If you experience any problems with the online homework, please contact Mrs Townsend or Miss Airey.

 

Water bottles & Snacks:

Children are allowed to bring water bottles into school that are kept in the classroom. Please ensure that these are named, and they must be taken home each day for washing. The children may also bring in a small healthy snack which they can enjoy at break time.

 

PE:

Currently, Year 4 class PE sessions are on Monday and Thursday afternoons. They will be taught teamwork skills through different team games on Monday afternoons with Liam. Children should wear blue or black shorts with a white t-shirt and black pumps/trainers. Children can also bring trainers for outdoor activities. For colder weather, please ensure your child has black leggings or jogging bottoms and either a jumper/hoody. These can be worn for outdoor sessions (weather permitting).  All clothing items should be clearly labelled with your child’s name. 

Jewellery should not be worn for PE.
Please ensure that if your child has long hair it is tied back.. 

 

Helping at School:

We are always very grateful for any additional help that parents or other family members can volunteer. If you are able to help out on a regular basis please speak to Mrs Townsend or Miss Airey. We will be delighted to arrange this. 

 

As always, if you have any queries or questions please do not hesitate to contact us before or after school or alternatively make an appointment at the school office.

 

Thank you for your continued support,

 

Mrs Townsend and Miss Airey
