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 historical themed term.

During our first half term, we will be learning all about the Anglo-Saxons and The Vikings in our project, "Traders and Raiders." To kickstart our topic, we will be visiting St. John's House Museum in Warwick to learn about the Saxons, to make jewellery and practice writing our names in runes. 

In English, we will be writing newspaper reports. We will be reporting about the Vicious Vikings raiding and pillaging the monasteries. We will then be writing a character description, before ending the half term with writing poetry to entertain the famous Viking king, King Olaf. 

Homework

Link to Homework Booklet

Maths homework will be given out every Wednesday with new work to complete, and should be returned 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 Thursday and every Friday.

Thank you for your support.
