Click on the tree to see what fantastic things we have been up to in Year 4.
In Year 4 learning is both challenging and fun where we visit many exciting topics throughout the course of the year. Some topics we will cover this year include Earthquakes and Volcanoes, Rivers, The Roman Invasion and Rainforests. This year we are also very lucky to be going on an overnight residential to Malham Tarn for some field study work.
We have PE in Year 4 on Thursday and Friday and as such I am asking that all children keep a PE kit in school for these sessions with each item of clothing labelled with a name.
Children are encouraged to read daily and receive a stamp on the chart each time they have read at home. Reading books are changed daily as long as their reading record has been signed to say that your child has read. Points will also be collected for our whole school reading challenge in which a class has the chance to win a big mystery prize at the end of the half term. Click on our car to find out more.
Homework is given out every Friday and children have until the following Thursday to complete and return it. Children will be given either English or Maths homework in their homework book as well as some spellings to practice and learn over the week. This spelling sheet does not need to be returned to school. Homework is an essential part of learning and builds on what the children have been doing in the classroom.
Alongside reading and homework there are lots of things you can do to help your child with their learning at home. Some useful websites that your child could visit are listed below:
