Year 4

Welcome to the Year 4 class page

 

Mrs Woodward and Mr Jones are your class teachers.

 

Mrs Baker-Roberts is your teaching assistant.

 

Other teaching assistants may support small group work and reading sessions.

 

Information about Year 4

 

Year 4 will have outdoor PE on a Thursday with a sports coach and a further PE lesson on a Monday with Mr Jones or Mrs Woodward. Children will need dark shorts or jogging bottoms, a white t-shirt, trainers and a sweatshirt or hooded jumper in the colder weather. Long hair must be tied back for PE lessons, watches should be removed and earrings should be taken out. Any other jewellery is not to be worn to school.

 

Please take the time to review our uniform guidance on the parent page.

 

In Year 4, Homework will be sent home on a Wednesday and should be returned on Monday morning. 

 

Children are encouraged to read books from our class library and from home. Once pupils have been issued with a reading record, we ask that the pupils (or parents) record what has been read. We encourage parents to listen to children and question them about the books that they are reading. Reading questions and ideas are on the class page for you to support your child with their reading.

 

Times tables are incredibly important in Year 4 as they will help children to understand some of the more complex mathematical concepts like division and fractions. Any additional support that you can offer your child at home would be gratefully received! There are a number of online games and websites that can support your child with their times tables but regular rehearsal really is the key! Year 4 pupils take part in a statutory multiplication test later on in the year and we are keen to support pupils in the lead up to this. The test is timed and pupils must answer within 6 seconds. 

 

Age related spellings are given each week. These will be rehearsed in class but we would ask that they are practised at home too. In addition, your child may receive some of the spellings that were taught in previous year groups in order to consolidate their learning. In our English lessons, pupils will be exposed to the Year 3 and 4 Statutory Spellings. A copy of these spellings can be found on our class page for you to read through and practice with your child.

 

As a school, we will be focusing on the environment this year. We will be thinking about ways in which we can become carbon neutral by 2050. This is an important focus for us all and we will continue to explore ideas throughout the year.

 

In the Spring Term, we will look at Invaders and Settlers. Please see the curriculum map below for further details.

 

Our year group non-negotiable skills can be found on our class page. These will be a focus throughout the year and all pupils will be expected to achieve these skills by the end of the year (unless they are on the SEN register).

 

Pencil cases - pupils in Year 4 are provided with all of the stationery items that they will need in class. If pupils wish to bring in a pencil case then it should be small and flat, containing no more than 15 items so that it can fit in their tray. Stationery is limited to fountain pen, pencil, 1 rubber, 1 pencil sharpener, 1 ruler, 10 or less coloured pencils or felt tips.

 

Please come and talk to one of us if you have any questions or concerns.

Some of you might be thinking about items needed for the Isle of Wight residential trip. Above you should find a packing list. Old clothes are best to pack but if you need anything new (waterproof trousers, fleeces etc.) a parent kindly passed on a Mountain Warehouse discount code for 20% off. When ordering online, you type in 'POLAR' when it prompts you for online discount codes to give you a 20% discount.
