Welcome to the Year 4 class page!
AUTUMN TERM 1
Reading – Reading takes place every day in school, in a variety of ways: whole-class guided sessions, individual reading, and during the class text. Vocabulary, retrieval and improving inference are all of high priority, but ensuring your child enjoys reading is the main thing that matters! Please encourage your child to read as often as possible outside of school. If you need any recommendations, please ask. Lovereading4kids.co.uk is a wonderful website for recommendations but we have a vast selection in school. Remember, comprehension and an appreciation of what you have read is of equal importance to speed and fluency. It is so important that each and every child has an enjoyment of reading. There is a book for everyone! If you're not sure what your child should be reading next, please come and ask.
Maths – By the end of Year 4, children should be able to recite all within 3 seconds. Times Tables Rock Stars will help with this, so ask for your child's login details if you are you do not already have them.
P.E - This is every MONDAY for 4A and every FRIDAY for 4L.
Don't forget to bring the correct kit, ready for this day. This is a white T-Shirt, black shorts and a pair of black pumps. It would be ideal if this kit was clearly labelled and kept securely in a labelled P.E. bag, so that any misplaced items can be returned quickly. Have a pair of track pants and something warmer available as we will be outside as often as possible
This term Class 4L will be going swimming every Monday afternoon. They need to bring their swimming costume (either a one piece swimming costume or trunks), a towel and a swimming cap for these sessions.
Reading will be the children's main activity that is expected outside of the classroom. If the right book is found, this should not seem like hard work! Weekly spellings and times table practise will be provided. Of course, any additional research or work is richly encouraged and will only benefit your child's progress throughout the year.
If you have any questions or queries, please arrange a phone appointment via the school office. We thank you for your continued support as we head into this next half term.
