Year 4 2018 - 2019

Welcome to Year 4.

This is the home of Miss Bird and Mrs Gillies.

We make learning fun in our class and always try to enjoy our work and be helpful and kind to each other.  This year we are focusing on being independent and responsible whilst in and out of the class room.  Our Christian Value this half term is friendship.

This term, spellings are sent out every Monday and we have our spelling test on a Friday.  We have two lots of homework each week.  Homework will generally be a piece of English and a piece of Maths.  English homework will be sent out on a Tuesday to be returned on a Friday, and Maths homework will be sent out on a Friday and should be returned by the following Tuesday. This term we are also starting our times table books to be completed and signed each day as children complete their times tables. These are to be handed in every Friday and taken home on a Monday to practise throughout the week.



We also ask that children read five times per week if possible.  Now that children are in Year 4, reading up to 60 minutes per day can significantly improve their fluency and comprehension.  Please record your child's reading in their reading journals as they can recieve reading ninja certificates every 25 times they read.  Children are also to write a book synopsis in their journals every time they read; this will allow children the opportunity to show their understanding.  The children are very good readers and comprehension is extremely important now.

The children need to keep practising all of their times tables and division facts; with a main focus on 6, 7, 8, 9, 11 and 12.  Times table tests will be carried out on Friday mornings.

Our P.E lessons this half term will be on a Monday morning with Mr Noblett and on a Wednesday afternoon with me and Mr Olmez.  However, it is important to have our P.E kit in school every day.  This half term we are focusing on hockey and gymnastics.

In Year 4, we will be having clarinet lessons every Thursday morning.  Children are responsible for bringing their clarinets in every Thursday morning and taking them home on a Thursday night to practise throughout the week.

Enjoy looking through our photographs and blog to show what life is like in our class.

Kind regards Miss Bird and Mrs Gillies.
