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: Soaring Cities & Raging Rivers, the Anglo Saxons, Global Caretakers, The Romans and many more! Please see the year's curriculum overview and the term's curriculum map below for more information.
Term 1’s value is GENEROSITY. We will be thinking about different ways in which we can show this value to those whom we love, in school and outside of school, and continuing to focus on how we can be more resilient.
This will be on Mondays with Bristol Sport and will be outdoors. We will also have indoor PE on Wednesdays with me. Please ensure a full outdoor PE kit is in all of the time. If your child does not have their PE kit in school, they will miss out.
This continues to be given out on Fridays and needs to be returned on WEDNESDAYS. If your child's book is returned after Wednesday I will be unable to mark it unfortunately due to other commitments on a Thursday evening. Each week the children need to practise 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
Spellings: Thursday morning.
Times Tables: Friday morning.
Times Tables: once your child gets a score of 37+/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.
