Year 4 2022 - 2023
WELCOME TO YEAR 4
Welcome to Year 4! We hope that you all had a relaxing summer. We are really looking forward to teaching your children again. They have grown quite a bit since Year 1!
We’ve already had a fantastic start to September. Our class have been taking part in many activities, including sharing our holiday news, exploring the school rules, art for our new class display and discussions all about our class and the year ahead!
Miss Shaw will teach the class on Mondays and Tuesday mornings. Mrs Griffiths will teach them on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays; however, we are both in school all week if you need us. We are lucky enough to have the help of Mrs Kavanagh and Mrs Fray in our class. Mrs Williams will teach one PE session and Madame Carter will teach French on Tuesday afternoons.
During the autumn term, our topic will be Ancient Greece. In RE our topic will be creation, where we will be exploring the question “Why do you think the creation stories are similar and different?” In science we will learn about the digestive system, teeth and food chains.
PE will be on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons. Please make sure that your child keeps their PE kit in school, due to occasional changes in the day and that every piece of clothing is labelled with their name. If your child’s ears are pierced, please make sure they do not wear earrings on PE days.
Please encourage your child to read at home as much as possible and to have their reading diaries signed and dated. Reading diaries will be checked once a week as part of our whole school ‘Read Around the World’ challenge. It would be really helpful if you could write a comment in their diary after each time your child has read.
Spellings, English and maths homework will be set on a Friday and are due in the following Wednesday. Extra time will be given if a creative piece of homework has been set.
The multiplication check will take place within a 3-week window from Monday 5th June. The purpose of the multiplication check is to determine whether children can recall their 12x12 tables fluently. We will be providing further information closer to the time and in the meantime will be practising our times tables in school. Regular practise of times tables at home will also help to prepare your child for this.
We are hoping to take the children on a residential for two nights later on in the academic year. We will send further information as soon as this is confirmed.
We look forward to working with you and your child again this year and building on the fantastic start that we have already had.
