Year 4

In term 3, the year 4 classes learning will cover the areas below.

Reading- Children were allocated colour- banded books from the Big Cat Reading Scheme or the Badger Reading scheme. These books are used for 1:1 reading with adults. At home, parents can listen to their children read and record in the Reading Record books. In addition, books can be selected from the book corners or library.

Writing- The children are reading a book called Demolition Dad, written by Phil Earle. The outcomes are a Recount and Persuasive Letter.

Maths- Currently, the children are working through the 4A Maths No Problem workbook and textbook on the subject of subtraction. Recording is done in Journals. Homework is also given in the form of MyMaths, where children can consolidate their learning.

Science- States of Matter (solids, liquids and Gases). Work with your child to create a Powerpoint or Information booklet on the subject.

Topic- This term, year 4 are doing Geography instead of History and are covering the aspect of Rivers. As a result, children will visit the Thames and experience a hands-on activity in February.

Computing- Children are using the SCRATCH software and learning to be programmers.

PSCHE- The Jigsaw topic this term relates to Hopes and Dreams. You can also work with your child to make a mobile which reflects their hopes and dreams.

RE- What religions are represented in our neighbourhood?

PE- Year 4 are doing Gymnastics and Handball, so children are reminded to have their PE kit at school, ready for the lessons. There is a large amount of jumpers, trousers, hats etc. unclaimed on year 4 children’s pegs. Please feel free to search the lost property box on the middle floor.

Good Work Assemblies- If your child is participating in the class assembly on a Friday, please do come and show them your support.
