Year 4

Welcome to our Year 4 page.

 

Here, you’ll find all the important information you’ll need for your child’s class.

 

Forest School

 

This term, Holly Class and Maple Class will be taking part in Forest School every Tuesday morning. As always, the children will need clothes that you don't mind getting messy and a waterproof coat.

Home Learning

 

Starting from this term, home learning will run differently in the form of Tea Time Talk.

 

This task is based around three questions which relate directly to the learning your child will have just completed in school. The questions encourage you as a family to discuss your child’s learning and this will provide an important opportunity for your child to rehearse, and therefore retain, the knowledge and skills that they would have recently acquired at school.

 

All you need to do is talk about the questions with your child.

For those who wish to, there is the optional task of recording your Tea Time Talks in some form. For example, you could:

  • Write a series of bullet points that summarise the discussion you have had;
  • Record in speech bubbles the conversation you have had and create a Tea Time Talk poster;
  • Younger children may prefer to draw a series of pictures that demonstrate the aspects of learning covered;
  • Where possible, photos might be used to capture the Tea Time Talk learning in action (e.g. if the learning is linked to PSHE and ways of keeping healthy, a photo of your child riding their bike might be appropriate);
  • You could film a short video for each of the Tea Time Talks.
  • Demonstrate learning outdoors, like we often do at school.

 

The weekly tea time talk tasks can be found at the bottom of the page under Key Information next to the Weekly Spellings button.

PE

As you know, Year 4's swimming lessons have now finished.

 

Your child will need their regular PE kit kept in school for their PE session for this term.

Mrs Searle (Monday to Wednesday) and Mrs Jinks (Thursday and Friday) are the class teachers in Holly class.

 

Mr O’Mallan is the teacher in Maple class.

 

Miss Moore is our teaching assistant and Mrs Costas is a learning support assistant in Maple class.

Year 4 Expectations

 

As usual, the children are expected to read a minimum of three times a week at home. This will need to be signed off by an adult at home in their reading records. These will go towards your child's home reads and will support with their access of all areas of the curriculum.

 

If children are unable to meet this for two consecutive weeks, we're happy to meet and help however we can.

 

The children are also expected to practise Times Table Rock Stars three times a week as this will support them with their upcoming multiplication assessment.
