Year 4

 

Teacher : Miss Styles

TA:  Mrs Waller

Welcome to Year 4

 

Welcome back!

I hope you all had a lovely summer and are ready to begin your first term in Year 4!  I am really looking forward to teaching you all again this year and can’t wait to continue our learning from where we left off.  We’ve got some exciting events coming up too as the circus will be coming to our school and of course we’ve got the Isle of Wight trip to look forward to later this year.

For this Autumn term our main topic will be about London and we will be asking ourselves the questions ‘Why is the Thames so important to London?’ and ‘Why is London such a cool place to live?’  In Science, we will be learning how to group animals as we look at ‘Living things and their habitats’ and after half term we will be exploring different types of food chains.  In English, we’ll start the term with our non-fiction unit: Wanted: Space Explorer!  To find out more about what we’re covering in other subjects please look at the Medium Term Plan below. 

PE kits
Year 4 will be having PE lessons every Monday and Friday afternoon this term so please ensure that they have their named PE kit at school at all times and that it is suitable for both indoor and outdoor PE.

Homework 
Homework will be handed out every Wednesday and will consist of spellings, Maths and Reading Comprehension. This will help to consolidate the children’s learning. The homework will then need to be handed back in on the Monday and the children will also be tested on their spellings that day.

Reading 
In Year Four, children will read with an adult during Guided Reading sessions only where the teacher will listen to them read within a small group.  In addition to this, your child will still get school books to take home each week to read with an adult or older sibling.  The expectation is that you read with them three (or more) times a week at home and record it with a signature in the reading record which will be checked every Monday.  These books will then be swapped each week on a designated day. 

Your child will also be taking home a library book which they may swap in the Key Stage 2 library at any point during the week as soon as they have finished it or wish to change it.

If you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to contact me.
