Year 4

Mr Rooney

Welcome to Year 4!

PE is on Tuesdays. Please ensure that your child brings the correct PE kit, which can be viewed here.

Spellings will be given out on Mondays and will be tested the following Monday. 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.

Come back to our class page regularly for updates.

If you need to contact me, please press the button on the right and ensure that you put ‘FAO: Mr Rooney’ in the title. I will get back to you as quickly as I can. Alternatively, contact the office and leave a message.

What are we learning?

In English…

Our class text for the summer is ‘Thieves of Ostia,’ an exciting mystery novel with links to our History unit. We will be using this text to inform our narrative and non-narrative writing.

In Maths…

We will be learning about measure, geometry and position and direction.

In Science…

This half term, we will be learning about sound.

In RE…

We will look at prayer being a way of communicating with God knowing that Christians believe that God listens and responds. Children will look at how people of other faiths pray.

In History…

We are learning about the Romans, answering the enquiry question, ‘What did the Romans do for us?’
