Welcome to our Year 4 Homepage!

 

 

Myself, Mrs Pearson and Miss Stothers would like to welcome the children back to school ready for the New Year and term ahead!

Key Dates 

Please keep an eye out for important dates, although a text message, letter or seesaw announcement will be sent on occasions. 

  • Tullie House Workshop 11.1.24
  • Class Assembly 23.1.24

Spring 2024

 

PE will be on a Tuesday and a Wednesday for this term. Please can children bring PE kits to school on Mondays and leave them in school all week, before taking them home on a Friday.

Homework unless otherwise stated will be reading, reading challenge, TT Rockstars and x table practice and Mathletics. The children will have a Tables Test in the Summer Term so lots of practise will be welcome so they build their fluency and knowledge. We will keep in touch with you via Seesaw, email and text. You can contact us on Seesaw messages. For any extra homework, the children are advised to complete Mathletics activities to achieve their target of 1,000 points per week. It would be fantastic for every child to read at home for 10 -15 minutes per day to develop their reading fluency and comprehension.

 

SPRING CURRICULUM.

R.E.

In R.E. this term we will be learning about ‘Jesus the Teacher’ and what he did whilst on earth. We will explore scripture and stories from the New Testament.

After half term, we will find out about the importance of Lent and will explore scripture from the New Testament, looking in-depth at the events leading up to the Crucifixion of Jesus.

 

Literacy

During our literacy work this term, we will be engaging in a variety of written forms including narrative writing and writing some poems on the theme of ‘Friendship’.  We will be studying a film clip and text called ‘The Robin’ to write our own Winter narrative on the robin’s journey.  The children will practice using interesting and imaginative vocabulary to add detail to their descriptions, and will develop their ability to use conjunctions, develop their use of clauses, adverbials and expanded noun phrases.

We will carry out spelling, punctuation and grammar (SPaG) lessons three times per week. During these sessions we will practise different spelling rules and understand grammar terms such as nouns, adjectives, adverbs and verbs.

Each day, the children will have a quiet reading session where they read and complete quizzes based on their book using Accelerated Reader. They will also have Reading for Pleasure time and weekly Book Talk sessions where they can share books with each other.

 

Numeracy

Our numeracy lessons will follow the White Rose Maths scheme of work. This term we will focus on multiplication, length, perimeter and fractions. The children will learn how to calculate perimeter and solve simple problems using fractions. We will then move on to understanding decimals and their equivalents.

 

Science

Our science topics this term are ‘States of Matter’ and ‘Electricity.’ We will carry out various practical activities and investigations linked to these topics.

 

History/Geography

During this term we will be finishing our topic on the Anglo-Saxons and then learning about the Egyptians. After half term, we will return to a Geography topic looking further at South America and the Rainforests. Watch out on Seesaw for further information and what activities the children are doing.

 

PE
During this term the children will be learning how to improve their fitness. This will include dodgeball and basketball. There are two After School Clubs, dance and football on a Thursday and Friday until 4.15 pm.  Please can children bring their P.E. kits in to school on a Monday and leave in school all week before taking home on a Friday.

  

PSHE

During this term our topics will include learning about ‘Resilience’ and ‘Care’ of ourselves and others.

 

Art & Design

 We will be exploring the use of 3D effects and sculpture techniques using mega materials completing our unit from last term. Then we will work on a Design and Technology topic where they will design and begin to construct a cushion.

 

If you have any questions about our curriculum, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
