A Very Warm Welcome to Year 4
Welcome back to all Year 4 parents and children! This year we will be learning interesting and exciting topics - please see the curriculum map online for details of each half term topic.
Each half term children will have a home learning project (further details will be sent home in a letter). Children can share their work by sending in photos or a PowerPoint presentation to our Key Stage 2 email address.
There will be no homework books, book bags or school reading records for the time being. However, children will have 10 spellings to learn each week as well as maths work. In addition, they should practice their times tables daily. Scores from tests will be sent home to monitor progress.
Reading at Home:
Children are expected to read daily. During this half term we will be reading 'The Iron Man' by Ted Hughes and 'The Lost Myth of Mathos' by Anthony Wootten. Reading Buddies is an excellent resource to support your child's reading comprehension skills. Please use every day and ensure that children are logging on and using Reading Buddies via Google Chrome and not Internet Explorer.
This term's topic will focus on our book 'The Iron Man'. In DT, children will design and make their own robots. In Science, we are exploring states of matter. In Geography, we are learning about England and in RE we are focusing on the stories of the Bible.
If you have any questions about the information above, please feel free to make an appointment to speak with me or speak to me at the gate at home time.
We are looking forward to a fantastic and successful year together!
