Year 4 Notices
PE lessons are on Mondays and Fridays so please wear your PE kit to school on these days.
Children can quiz on their home reading books every day. Children are expected to read for at least 20 minutes per day.
Times Tables Rockstars
Children are expected to practice their times tables for at least 10 minutes per day. The aim is for children to be fluent in all times tables by the end of Year 4.
Throughout the year, we will be teaching about Revelation, The Church, Celebration and Life in Christ. We aim to engage and equip our children with the knowledge, understanding, skills and belief to be good citizens within the local and universal community, drawing inspiration from Divine Revelation, including the whole world around them.
Writing– We will develop our understanding of the techniques writers use to create images and engage the reader and then try to use these in our own writing. We will also practise performing using our best expression and enthusiasm!
Reading– in our reading sessions, we will carry out novel studies which allow us to enjoy whole books by investigating themes, characters and events. They also help us to become better writers as we can pinch ideas and techniques that we find! We will work on our non-fiction skills, such as skimming and scanning, when researching for writing.
In Year 4, we will be looking to develop our understanding of decimal numbers before studying different units of measure and beginning to convert between these.
Please continue to help your child to learn and manipulate tables facts by chanting the table backwards and forwards with them, from 0 x up to 12x.
Enhance your Learning!
In Year 4 we develop more responsibility for our own learning. We investigate, discuss, hypothesise -but most of all -share our expertese!
Explaining what we know and understand is a good way to rehearse and embed what we learn.
