Welcome to Year 4! Your teachers this year will be Mrs Parry (Monday to Wednesday) and Mrs Hill (Wednesday to Friday). I hope you've all had a restful half term!
Our new topic for this term is Come Fly With Me. The children will be learning about India. We will focus specifically on a village called Chembakolli. We will learn and use mapping skills to see where we are in the world and where India is in the world. We will compare our lives with life in India. In RE our theme is Wish you were here. We will be learning about different places of worship and why they are special to some people.
You can never over practise your tables so please keep it up!
There are lots of online maths games you can play
This year the children will also continue to follow the Abacus maths scheme and will be set regular homework from the Active Learn website. Please try to encourage your child to complete their allocated tasks, as it reinforces work carried out in the classroom. The site is tablet and phone compatible.
Please remember to practice and learn those learn its for our Big Maths tests on Friday morning!
The children bring home their reading books everyday and we ask that they read at home to an adult. Their reading books must be brought into school everyday as the children have many opportunities to read. The children will have various reading experiences throughout the week, including a Guided Group Reading session.In school we focus a great deal on understanding the content of what is being read, asking a variety of questions about the content, in order to ensure they gain a full understanding of the plot, characters and themes. Please ask the children questions about their books to ensure they have understood what they have read.
PE is every Thursday and Games on Tuesday afternoon. Please ensure all children bring in suitable clothing and appropriate footwear, i.e. trainers, for indoor and outdoor PE and Games activities. This may include T-shirts, shorts, leggings, jogging bottoms and a warm top. All jewellery must be removed for PE lessons, without exception.
