Here is some information all about Year 4 which we hope will be useful to you:
In year 4 we have many members of staff ready to support the children. The class teacher is Miss Hinton, who receives additional support from Mrs Entwistle, Mr Roberts and Mrs Colledge to ensure the children work in a safe and encouraging environment.
Theme: This term we will be looking at ancient Egypt!
Science: We will be looking at circuits and electrical conductors
Maths: In maths we will be following Focus maths and working with larger numbers. Much of the number work is reliant on the children knowing their tables.
English: We will be looking at stories with a historical setting, newspaper articles, stories from other cultures and persuasive texts.
RE: We will be looking at religious festivals and why they are so important.
PE: PE is taught by Mr Ashby on a Wednesday and a Thursday. Please ensure the children have a PE kit on these days.
Spelling books go home on a Monday. As a class we practice our spellings on a Thursday and take a test on the Friday. Please support your children practicing spellings at home.
Reading books are sent home every day for children to continue working towards being a confident reader. Please read with your children at home and discuss what they have read. We ask for a signature in their books to show that they have been read with.
Homework goes home on a Friday and is checked on a Wednesday. If children are unwilling and do not have enough time to do homework at home, a homework club runs on a Wednesday at lunchtime that the children are more than welcome to attend. The homework sent home is either maths or English. There are is additional homework the children can complete based on our topics at the front of their books, if they would like to receive a prize for doing it.
Behaviour We are continuing to follow the Gold Silver Green Orange Red traffic light system
It’s good to be green- children will work towards having Golden Time and a treat at the end of term. Children who work hard towards gold have their name placed in the golden box and a name is chosen at the end of every week to receive a prize from the treasure box.
Trips and theme days: we will try to organise trips that inspire the children’s learning. We will need voluntary contributions to enable these special days and trips to go ahead. I am working alongside the year 3 teacher, Miss Smith, to organise an ancient Egyptian day. We also have Kingswood this term, which I'm very much looking forward to.

We look forward to working with you
