Year 4

In year 4 we are taught by Mrs Smith, Mrs Seaman, Mrs Waddell and Mrs Moran. We are supported by Mr Scott, Miss Simpson and Mrs Williams.

This term, we have lots of exciting and engaging topics planned that re-cover key skills and build upon skills previously taught. We are working hard to ensure all children catch up and the key worker children, who were in school, continue to make progress.

Year 4 are staying in Egypt to continue our study of the ancient Egyptians. We will be looking at why they settled along the banks of the Nile and the importance of the river in the lives of all Egyptians. We will look at the pharaohs, mummification, the afterlife and the Gods. We will also be looking at the important finds of Howard Carter, we will be writing in Hieroglyphs too-we are all so excited!

Look what we’ve been up to in Year 4

Homework and Spellings

Children are all expected to practice their times tables every night and use Times Tables Rock Stars regularly.  Their challenge is to complete 15 games a week!  Spellings will still be given out ready for spelling tests on a Friday and please continue to read your home reader as many times as you can with an adult.

PE

P.E will take place on a Wednesday. Please ensure your child has their P.E kit in school from a Monday and this is to be taken home after the session, washed and brought back for the following Monday.

Home Reading

As a school, we expect the children to read at least 3 times per week and have their journal signed by an adult. Children should bring their reading book and journal into school daily so they have the opportunity to read with adults in school.

Children have an Accelerated Reader password and user name. Use this link to access the quizzes!
