Welcome to Year Four's class web page.

Here you will be able to find the latest information about what Year 4 are currently learning.  

 

Welcome to Year 4!

We hope you had an enjoyable break and are ready for a science themed term. 

Our first learning project this half term is called Potions.

Potion: a poison, a mixture, an aromatic brew, a vapour, a liquid or sticky goo!

Welcome to the amazing magical world of potions and their properties. Now scientists, beware! There are some powerful and deadly potions out there - dangerous, unpredictable or plain tragic (just ask Romeo and Juliet!)

Use what you know about materials and their properties to create incredible potions for Professor Hazard's Potion class.

 

In English, we will be writing a label to help Alice (in Wonderland) to decide whether or not to drink the potion. Then we will be transporting ourselves back to the discovery of anaesthetic during surgery. We will be writing a letter explaining what we observed. Finally, we will be writing an alternative ending for Romeo and Juliet in a playscript format.

Homework

Link to Homework Booklet

Maths homework will be given out every Wednesday on Mathleticswith new work to complete, and should be completed by the following Monday.

In addition to weekly maths homework, it is an expectation that all children practise their times tables and learn their new spelling rule(s).

By the end of year 4, all children should be able to quickly recall times table facts up to 12 x 12.

Children will be taught new spelling rules every Friday. These will be taught in class and then a supporting sheet will be sent home that day. Please encourage your child to learn as many words as possible that follow the spelling rule so that they can apply this rule to a wide range of words. On the following Friday, children will take part in a short spelling test which will check their understanding of the rule.

Home reading books/diaries

To support children's reading and writing in school, your child is expected to read their home reading book each night. They must bring their reading book, along with their diary, which should be signed and dated by a parent/guardian who has heard their child read, in to school each morning.

PE Kits

Children must bring their PE kit every Friday.

Thank you for your support.
