Class 4

Autumn Term 2019

Welcome to Year 4!

Croeso i Dosbarth pedwar!

 

 

Welcome to Year 4! Your teachers this year will be Mrs Parry (Monday to Wednesday) and Mrs Nicholson. 

We hope that you've had a wonderful summer break and raring to go for a new and exciting year!!


Our new Enquiry for this term is "How does the water reach our taps?". We have used pupil voice to find out what we want to learn. We have so many questions!!! Here are just a few 

How do people clean water? Mai, Halima, Samaira, Amjad

Why is water see through? Aliyah, Lily

Is water always clear? Roxy

How does water get to your toilet? Millie

Is water more important than food? Samaira

How long can we survive without water? Mai

How do seas creatures survive in the sea? Hashir

Why do turtles swim in water and breathe without water?

We will be finding out the answer to many of our questions this term in an exciting cross-curricular way. Using our science and technology skills to find out about the water cycle, using our humanities skills to find out about the similarities and differences about water across the world  and its usage. We will be measuring and recording rainfall and recording our information in different ways. So many exciting tasks for us to explore!!

Maths
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!
 
Reading

 

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. 
P.E.

PE is every Thursday  and Games on Friday 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.
