Welcome to Class 4

Welcome!

Welcome to our class page. This year Class 4 will be taught by Miss Waring and Miss Riley, our Teaching Assistant.
We are reading “The Firework Maker’s Daughter” by Philip Pullman this half term. We will be focusing on writing story settings and developing a more varied vocabulary, writing clear instructions and writing and performing poetry.
We are also learning about 'Materials' in Science, how they are classified and how they change state. We will also use our maths skills to measure temperatures alongside our investigations.
In Geography, we will be studying maps to locate continents and countries around the world and then focus on the human and physical features of the UK, such as rivers and mountains.
In Art we will be creating art work in the style of "The Great Wave" by Japanese artist Hokusai by experimenting with different mediums and techniques.

Important information:

We do PE every Monday and Tuesday, so please remind your child to bring their PE kit on the correct days.

Homework will be sent out every Friday and need to be sent back into school by the following Wednesday. Your child will have spellings to learn, maths activities and some creative topic work to complete.

Reading regularly to an adult is extremely important so that your child makes good progress and understands what they are reading well. Your child’s reading diary will be checked every Friday. The children who have read the most often each week will win a prize and receive a special certificate! Each half term there will be an exciting prize for the child who has read the most in total.

Home Learning

Please read every day with your child and write this in their diary. Your child will bring a book home from their tag but you could also read newspapers, biographies, comics and encyclopaedias together to encourage them to read a wide range of books for pleasure.

By the end of Year 4 all children need to know their times tables up to 12x12. Please practise together as often as you can, a little time each day would make a huge difference to their times table knowledge.

Spellings will be sent home every Friday, please practise and talk about each word’s meaning together to check your child understands.
