Welcome to Year 4
Welcome to Year 4!
Miss Naden and Mrs Wilcox
It has been lovely to get to know our year 4 class these past few weeks. We have already successfully completed our first school trip to Cadburys World, kickstarting our amazing vehicle. We are hardworking, enthusiastic, thoughtful and independent learners in year 4 with a very exciting year ahead of us.
This term we will be focusing on the following units:
Creation and the story of Abraham
Jesus teaches us how to pray
We will continue to think about our collective worship as a class and we will take part in mass every other week.
We will be starting our term by reading Leon and the Place between. It is a fantastic picture book which is beautifully illustrated. The children will be exploring the book and using their creativity and imaginations to write in a variety of ways.
For the second part of the term we will be reading The Miraculous Journey Of Edward Tulane which will allow the children to immerse themselves in a wonderfully imaginative novel.
We have successfully began our first term by focusing on Place Value. Throughout the term we are going to be doing the following units: 4 digit numbers, addition and subtraction, perimeter and multiplication and subtraction.
This is a very important year for times tables. During the summer term, year 4 will be tested on their times tables which is why we are focusing more than ever on these. This will be taught through our 22 club, class chanting, games and Times Tables Rockstars.
Chocolate – From Bean to Bar!
Our vehicle this term is called Chocolate – from bean to bar! This will be studied across lots of different subjects to tie it all together.
Please listen to your child read every night, making a note in their diaries to show that they have read. Each child’s reading progress will be monitored on an individual level and during focused guided reading sessions.
