Please take time to look around the school’s website for key information. Also, make sure that you visit this page as often as possible as it is here that you will be able to view what your child is doing in school each week and every term via the Class Blog that appears below.
In the links above you will find information all about what we will be learning in Year 4!
Below, you will find information about your child’s PE time slot and information about reading at home!
At the bottom of the page is a weekly update of what the children have been learning about.
Year 4 will have PE weekly and it is therefore essential that your child has their PE kit in school every day. It is also important that each item of PE kit is clearly labelled with your child’s name in case things get lost.
Reading at Home
Reading at home is essential for your child to make the progress necessary with their school work. Your child will have a Reading Record Book that they bring home each night. If they read to you or another adult, or to themselves, please sign the Record Book to say this has happened. They will then get credits at school towards a range of reading certificates that they will receive in a class assembly.
Please read our weekly class blogs below.
4B Class Blog – Thursday 14th July 2022
English- This week we have been looking at developing our comprehension skills. We have used different rainforest poems to help us develop retrieval, inference and scanning skills. Rainforest is also part of our Geography topic. It has been useful for us to develop our skills. These skills will be very useful for us as we move into year 5.
Maths- This week we have been moving forward with the topic of coordinates. We have been looking at translation, of how to move shapes from one point to another, while using mathematical vocabulary, such as left, right, up and down. We also learnt new vocabulary - vertices- corners of a shape.
Design and Technology- We have designed our own rainforests and deserts, using lots of different materials, such as cardboard, tissue paper, string and many other different things we found in our art supplies. We were able to work in groups and use our own designs and ideas. It was so much fun.
PE-This week we had our sports day, it was so much fun and there were so many different activities that we took part in. It was lovely to see all our grown-ups coming along to support us. It was a lovely fun filled morning.
Art- We made our flags and banners for our chosen country of Ghana for sports day. We had lots of fun designing the flags and banners using the colours of red, green and yellow.
