Year 4

In year 4 we are taught by Mrs Seaman, Mrs Waddell and Mrs Stephenson. We are supported by Miss Simpson and Miss Stoker.

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.

In Year 4 , we are learning about the Ancient Egyptians. We will be learning all about how they lived and comparing this to other historical eras we have learned about at school. We will be discussing how we know about the Ancient Egyptians through looking at artefacts and other historical sources. We will look at mummification and the pharaohs – the children couldn’t believe that Tutankhamun became a King at the same age they are now! 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. Homework will consist of a grid of activities linked to topics that the children are learning about at school. The children should choose 1 activity to complete each week.

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.

Each classroom has a reading display on which the children can move their personlised bumble bee up the sunflower each time they have their reading journal signed by an adult.

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