Welcome to Year 4.
We hope you find the information below useful as your child starts the year with us. This information will help you support your child at home with the organisation of their week and their learning at home.
Miss Chapman teaches in Jays class and Mrs Percy teaches Kingfishers.
Homework will be set every week. This homework includes spellings (new spellings given out every Monday, test on Friday), learning timetables (1-12) and every child should be reading for 10-15 minutes every day.
Wednesday and Friday
Both classes receive 2 PE lessons each week. Please ensure that your child has a full, named, clean PE kit to bring in at the start of each week. Please ensure you REMOVE all earrings before PE days
|Trips||Every term we have 2 Wow days. These are an opportunity to further enrich the children's learning by taking part in workshops or going off site to visit places linked to their curriculum topics.
In Year 4, children will start at 8:40am and will be dismissed at the end of the day at 3:35pm.
What are we learning?
See the curriculum map on the subject page and view our looking forward letter at the bottom of the page for more details on what the children will be covering in class.
Our children are taught in line with the expectations that are set out in the National Curriculum. Subjects are taught with a clear progression and links are made with prior learning.
The Curriculum has been designed to ensure rigorous learning of knowledge but also to help teachers make all learning exciting, active and meaningful for children.Our curriculum engages children with their learning and gets them interested in the world around them. Our Curriculum takes a global approach by helping children to connect their learning to where they are living now as well as looking at the learning from the perspective of other people in other countries. The curriculum also emphasises the history and culture of Britain and promotes fundamental British values.
PE is taught by a specialist sports coach and Science, Music and Art are taught by specialist teachers.
Handwriting lessons take place two or three times each week focusing on letter height, formation and the flow of writing. We follow a structured approach to handwriting using the Morrells approach. We believe that this promotes flow and speed, and supports spelling as the children develop as writers.
How can I help at home?
One of the key ways every parent can help is to ensure that your child is at school every day and on time. Other than this, the main way you can help is by ensuring that your child reads every day, for at least 20 minutes – this can be with you, or on their own, but it is the most effective way of ensuring that your child progresses and learns outside of school. All pupils should be practising their spellings set each week, every day. Children also have their PurpleMash and Timetables Rock Stars login – please encourage them to use these frequently, as it will really help with their quick recall of mathematical facts and their timetables. As Year 4 have their timetables check in the Summer Term, it is also vital that they are practising their timetables 1-12 every day to prepare them for this.
If you have any questions, please talk to Mr Jopson or Mrs Hunt or you can arrange a meeting at the office.
