Miss Russell, Miss Stanbra and Miss Hollis are the teachers in Y4, supported by Mrs Etches and Mrs Chaplin.
If you work hard and try your best, Y4 will be a fun, enjoyable and rewarding time.
Working together positively and learning the skills of effective communication and co-operation will help you have a successful year.
We explore a range of different genres including instructions, recounts, news reports, narratives and we even write our own myth. We also look at a variety of poems and stories by different authors including Paddington and The Firework Maker's Daughter.
Make sure you practise your spellings and your handwriting. Our spelling tests are always on a Friday.
Remember to read regularly and ask an adult to sign your Contact Book so that you can move up the reading challenge!
We will build on our mathematical skills and develop our strategies with problem solving, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. We will also be learning about Roman numerals and why our number system changed. By the end of Year 4, you need to know all of your timestables so make sure your practise lots at home!
In Year 4, we learn how to play the violin. Our lessons are every Thursday and at the end of the year, we have a concert which is lots of fun.
We continue to improve our scientific skills and knowledge across our four themes.
We will look at:
The Rampaging Romans – What did the Romans do for us?
Wild Earth - What makes the Earth angry?
Ancient Greece - Who were the Ancient Greeks?
Rule Britannia - What makes Britain Great?
At home, try to;
BY WORKING TOGETHER, WE MAKE OUR LEARNING FUN!
Be a superstar and enjoy Year 4!
