Hello and welcome to the Year 4 page!
In 4G there is Mrs Garcia, in 4F there is Miss French and in 4S there is Miss Saddler. The classes are supported by Mrs Millet and Mrs Ahmed.
Year 4 is another important yet exciting year in your child’s learning. Throughout the year, they will continue to develop their writing skills through a range of high quality engaging texts. Your child will continue to write at length with a focus on purpose and audience. By the end of the year, they should have learned all of their times tables facts (for the times tables 1 to 12).
What we are learning this term
In Spring, we will be learning all natural disasters, such as earthquakes and volcanoes as part of our ‘We are Geographers’ topic.
English, we will be looking at a range of exciting texts linked to our topic such as Escape from Pompeii by Christina Ballit and Elephants of the Tsunami by Jana Laiz. The children will be given the opportunity to write for a range of purposes including story writing, diary entries and non-fiction such as newspaper reports.
In Maths, we will be focusing on multiplication and division and fractions and decimals .
How you can help at home
Times tables are done in school every week. Please check your child’s answers and go over any mistakes with them each week.
Please read with your child 5 times a week; this can be done using a book from the school library or home. Please record any reading at home in your child’s reading diary.
