We hope to have lots of fun while learning in year 4. We have many excellent topics to find out about over the course of the year: 100 years since the end of WWI, The Romans, Anglo Saxons, Habitats and Food Chains, Electricity, Forces, Digestion and Teeth, Solids, Liquids and Gases.
This is on Mondays (indoors) with me and Tuesdays (outdoors) with Future Stars. Please ensure PE kit is in all of the time.
This continues to be given out on Fridays and needs to be returned by Wednesday. Each week the children need to practice their times tables, spellings from their list and read regularly. There will also be a Maths, English and Topic or Science task consolidating that week's learning.
Spelling & Times Tables Tests
These are every Friday morning.
Times Tables: once your child gets a score of 40/40 two times, they move up to the next level.
Spellings: once your child gets a word spelled correctly twice they will then not be tested on it again. When they have got that for every spelling on the list, they will move on to the next list. It is also expected that they will be able to independently apply their spellings into the class work.
