Year 4

World Book Day

Year 4 Spring 1 2022

Welcome back Its great to see you all back again. We have a few changes to our timetable this term and of course we are learning new things.

We have finished our Forest Schools Block and our Dance unit. This means that Outdoor PE on Wednesday is Tag Rugby – and indoor on Thursday is Gymnastics. Please make sure your child has the right PE kit – any questions please ask.

We are very excited that this term we can access Essex Music Service Whole Class Ukulele lessons which will be on a Tuesday. Our homework and spelling test days are changing too. Homework is set on a Tuesday and due in on a Monday. All homework is set on Teams and can be returned that way.

In English we are reading Varjak Paw as a shared text. We are reading and writing Recounts and Diaries as our first unit and Sea stories as our second unit. We will continue to work on handwriting and spellings every week. In MFL (Spanish) we will continue our unit on people around us, learning about family, pets and names.

Our main focus in Maths is Multiplication, we are securing our understanding of multiplying and division, working with larger numbers and making sure we know up to 12x12 at instant recall. We will reinforce this in our computing unit - Spreadsheets

In Science we are studying States of Matter and investigating how things change state. Our Geography is all about water including the water cycle and water pollution. The Ancient Maya is our history topic and we will be looking at carving and weaving in Art and Technology inspired by the Maya.

A busy but very exciting half term ahead

Welcome to Y4

The children have all made a very positive start and are working hard to as we finish our first term together.

Our timetable has a basic pattern but is very flexible to meet the needs of the children.

Our PE days are Wednesday – Outside  Forest Schools and Thursday – Dance.

Most mornings we start with a writing or reading task like comprehension, pobble or spelling activities. We usually do our daily mile next before our English Lesson. After Break we usually do Maths .  After Lunch we start every afternoon with Reading time and we end most days  with Storytime or Poetry on Thursday. Homework is due in on Thursday and sent out on a Friday. - In the new year we are hoping to go virtual with our homework so please check your teams log in.
