Welcome back! I hope you have all had a lovely Christmas holiday and are ready for the new term.
I have lots of exciting things planned for the term and can’t wait for the learning to begin.
If you need to contact me, please press the button on the right and start your message with FAO Mr. Parker or leave a message for me in the office. I will do my best to contact you as soon as I can.
PE is on Mondays and Thursdays. Please ensure that your child brings the correct PE kit, which can be viewed here.
Swimming will start after the February half term, so please can you make sure that your child brings the correct swimming kit.
Spellings will be given out on Tuesday and will be tested the following Tuesday. I will also upload them to this page. The common exception words (below) are the spellings that your child is expected to know by the end of the year. However, additional words may appear in the weekly spellings to aid the learning of spelling rules.
Reading is incredibly important, and is a gateway to the rest of the curriculum. Please try to read for at least 10 minutes daily with your child. I would like to see your child’s reading record at least once per week, and books can be changed when required. If your child has chosen a book that they do not like please change it as soon as possible.
Times Tables as I’m sure you’re already aware are very important, however this is even more so in year 4. In summer term 2 the children will undertake a statutory multiplication check. So as a class we agree to go on TTRockstars for a minimum of 10 to15 minutes daily.
Come back to our class page regularly for updates.
Our class text is currently The Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame. The children have loved learning about the book so far and I am sure this will continue through the rest of this half term. At the moment we are learning how to write a character description for one of the characters from the story.
We will be learning about number and place value to 10 000, Addition & Subtraction within 10 000, and Multiplication & Division along with understanding how to create and read graphs and finally fractions. We will also be developing our fluency including lots of work around our times tables in preparation for the Multiplication Check which comes later in the year (details to follow).
Our science topic for the first half term is States of Matter. For the second half of the term the children will be learning all about electricity.
We will be deepening our understanding of the church in its widest sense, ensuring that pupils know that Christianity is a multi-cultural worldwide faith. We will look at the similarities and differences between denominations and further develop our understanding about places of worship from faiths other than Christianity
We are learning about the Rivers and Where Water Comes From, exploring the water cycle and the structure and features of rivers. The children will also be going on an educational visit to Castleshaw to deepen their knowledge of our topic this term.
