Welcome to Year 4

Year 4 are a class of 20 hardworking, respectful children.

They are led by Mrs McNicholl, Mrs Vernon (Monday) and Mrs Rees (Wednesday afternoon) with assistance from Mrs Secker.

We are looking forward to a busy, productive year in which children will strive to reach their full potential. 

Read on to find useful information, what we've been up to and what's to come.

Days to note

PE lessons will take place on a Thursday and Friday.  Please ensure that your child is sent into school with their full PE kit on a Monday so that it can remain in school for both lessons and be returned home to be washed on Friday. 

Reading books can be changed at any point in the week. Reading diaries will be monitored on Thursdays.  When possible, try and read for 10 minutes each day with your child. Encourage conversation about what has been read to check for understanding. Also talk around vocabulary that is new to your child.  Please record any reading completed at home in the reading record provided.  It is so important that your child reads regulary and we really appreciate your support on this matter. It is also possible to access reading books via Bug Club with the children's personal log-ins. 

Homework will consist of spelling and times table practise that can be accessed online via Spelling Shed, (these will change weekly) and TTRS apps. They will also receive comprehension work every Wednesday that needs to be returned by the following Thursday at the latest

Design & Technology - Greek Pottery

During this unit of work we will research of Ancient Greek pottery to generate ideas that will inform our own designs. Then we will design and make our own Ancient Greek decorative pot. We will collect research, explore materials and select appropriate tools and resources to use, also considering appropriate colours and designs to fit in with this historical period. Finally we will reflect and evaluate our end product against our design criteria, considering the views of others to improve our work.

RSE - Autumn

This half term Year 4 have been discussing how we should all be accepted and respected. We have talked about different ways to show others respect and why this is important.

Year 4 have also been reflecting on what a community is and which communities we are a part of. They have answered the question 'How can you help to keep yourself and others in your family and community safe?
