What You Need to Know
Please send your child in their PE kit on Fridays for PE lessons. PE kit is a plain white t-shirt with dark trainers or pumps, and blue or black shorts. Plain black or blue tracksuit bottoms may be worn in the winter.
On Wednesdays, we have swimming lessons, so don’t forget to bring your kit and a towel!
Homework will be given on Fridays to reflect the week’s learning.
Children will also practise spellings for the Grand Spell each Friday, as well as their multiplication for the times tables test that takes place on Friday mornings.
Y4 Multiplication Check-June 2022
This year the Year 4's will be completing a national multiplication check week beginning 20th June. This is will be completed on a tablet/ipad and consist of the children answering 25 times tables facts (multiplication only) with 6 seconds to answer each one. There is no pass or fail mark but the children should be constantly learning and revising their times tables up to 12 times 12 as much as possible. Children have been practising in school on Times Tables Rockstars completing the 'Soundcheck' as this is timed just like the multiplication check. If they could also practise at home on TT Rockstars this would be a great help. Please see the letter attached below which was handed out to parents with details of the check.
Home Learning resources can be accessed through Class Dojo.
We will post a weekly timetable for children to see their activities for the week.
For extra resources, follow the links below:
We change Reading books on Tuesdays and Fridays, so make sure your child has their book in school on these days.
We encourage all our children to read for at least 10 minutes every day outside of the classroom.
If your child is enjoying a good book and you find them reading it anywhere they go, snap a picture and send it to us on Class Dojo!
What We Are Learning About - Summer 1
In Maths, we are focusing on Fractions and Decimals. When we look at fractions we will be looking at fractions greater than 1, adding fractions and counting in fractions. We will also be recognising tenths and hundredths when looking at Decimals.
In Year 4, it is important to continue with our times tables revision. We do this on our TT Rockstars account or by singing and dancing on BBC Supermovers.
Here at the links to practise at home:
In English, we are looking at a poem from another culture by Benjamin Zephaniah. We are also going to be reading Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. Through this we will be looking at persuasive language and descriptive writing.
In Science, our topic will be the 'Big Build.'
In this topic, children learn about building towers and bridges, starting with constructing tall towers, then exploring bridges, next they look at animals as builders and finally engage in researching famous engineers and architects and the structures they built. Children will already know many things about the materials they will encounter, how different materials stretch and their uses.
In History, we will be looking at 'Crime and Punishment.'
In this unit, the children will explore how and why Crime and Punishment has changed over time. This will support them in developing an understanding of change and development over a long period of time. They will utilise a variety of sources of evidence to develop their knowledge and understanding of the different time periods. Within this, they will look at some small case studies in more depth to understand triggers for change, including the Bloody Code of 1815, the founding of the first police force, transportation of prisoners and the
activism of the suffragettes.
In Religion, we are looking at a different Religion. Our other Religion is Sikhism.
