Year 4

Welcome to our Year 4 page!

 

Teaching Staff in Year 4:

 

Mr Broom (Class Teacher), Mrs White (Teaching Assistant)

Mr Fischer (Class Teacher), Mrs Capaldi (Teaching Assistant)  

 

Maths homework

Children will be given one piece of maths homework every Friday which will need to be returned by Wednesday (the homework will be linked to their learning in the classroom from the previous week). In addition to the weekly homework children are expected to know all times tables up to 12 x 12 by the end of year 4. With this in mind, children should practise their times tables at least 3 times per week.

  

There is a homework club open to anyone who would like to complete their homework straight after school (see clubs list).

 

Reading

Within class, all children are being heard on a weekly basis during reading comprehension tasks, or 1:1 reading with the teacher or TA. It would be fantastic if reading logs could be signed on every occasion when a child has read to an adult at home. We encourage parents to continue asking questions about the book while you read with your child, deepening their understanding and broadening their vocabulary, as well as adding comments about their progress.

 

Spellings

Spelling lists will be sent home every two weeks, and will be tested in school. Please help your child to learn these spellings at home. As well as the spelling lists of rules we teach in school, children are also expected to be able to read, spell and use these words by the end of Year 4.

Topic

 

Our topic this half term is the Romans in Britain. We are looking forward to learning about what life was like during that time period, encompassing the local Celtic tribes and the devastation of Pompeii. Our learning will focus on research skills, using different sources of evidence to become history detectives.

 

If you have anything that could add to our learning about the Romans, we would love to hear from you.
