Welcome to Year Four
Our PE days are Wednesday and Friday. Children will need to arrive in their PE kit on the day. Please can we ask hair is tied up and no jewellery is worn on these days.
Alongside the weekly homework, we encourage you to read on a daily basis. If you would like to bring your reading book from home into school for DEAR time, you are welcome to! We love to see what you enjoy reading!
Welcome back Year 4!
You have had a great start to the year and we are really pleased with how hard you have been working! We have a really exciting half term planned, you will learn lots of new, interesting facts in history and science and have the opportunity to practise your music, Latin, art and computing skills.
In history, we are learning about the Anglo-Saxons. Do you know any facts about them already? We will learn about how they invaded Britain and what life as an Anglo-Saxon may have been like. In science, we are learning about the digestive system. We will be finding about how food travels through the body and the different stages that occur in digestion, we will be investigating the effects that sugar has on our teeth and thinking about a healthy, balanced diet. In music, we are learning the song ‘Mamma Mia’ and will be practising how to play the recorder. We know this is something that you are really excited about!
This half term, in maths, we will be focussing on place value. You will have your times table check this year, so we have asked that you practise your times tables on TTRS every day for 10 minutes. We understand that on some occasions this might not be possible but encourage you to access as often as possible. You will also have MyMaths to complete every week which will be set on a Wednesday.
In English, you will be looking at Beowulf with Mrs Sneddon. You will be developing your narrative writing skills to retell parts of the story making some changes and creating your own characters. You will be looking at information texts with Miss Tipple, you will be comparing the features of different texts and developing your own texts alongside your science and history learning. Every Wednesday, you will be set Spelling Shed homework to complete.
