Welcome to the class page for 4JG. 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.
Below you will also find important information about your child’s PE slot as well as advice about reading at home.
Year 4 will have PE weekly and it is therefore essential that your child has their PE in school everyday. 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 assembly.

We have had another enjoyable week in 4JG!
In maths, we have continued working with fractions - this week we have been converting improper fractions into mixed numbers. ‘An improper fraction is where the numerator is larger than the denominator’. NG ‘A mixed number has wholes and parts’. UD.
In English, we have been planning our own five-part narrative based on the book ‘Greta and the Giants’ which has been our focus for World Book Day. ‘We need to include similes, metaphors and personification in our narratives’. MK
‘In Science, we have been learning about our teeth, the different names for our teeth and comparing these to the teeth of carnivores and herbivores’. MK
In Geography, we have been learning about sustainability. ‘Sustainability means living a better, more improved and healthier lifestyle that can continue into the future’. KM We spoke about what is sustainable living and what isn’t. ‘Sustainable living includes eating healthy, recycling and walking to school’. EG ‘Unsustainable living is not recycling, getting public transport everywhere and wasting electricity’. CS
We celebrated World Book Day this week with a special reading from an author in assembly, book day activities in classes and a competition for best dressed was won by our very own AB!
We look forward to another busy week next week!
