Welcome to Class 4 - Miss. Reynolds

Class 4

Welcome back and I hope you have had a lovely break. Class 4 will have Miss Reynolds and Miss Weston working with them this year and we are looking forward to working with you and your children.

PE Kits: PE will be on a Monday and Wednesday.  PE kits will be sent home to be washed at half term.  Kits and pumps should be named.    

Reading: Year 4 children are expected to read independently a minimum of 3 times a week. Children are encouraged to read a variety of texts from school and home. It is advisable if you could listen in your child read aloud once per week to help discuss meanings of words and help with fluency. Children participate in whole class guided reading sessions 4 times a week and additional small group sessions were needed.

Spelling: The children will have 2 sessions of spellings per week in school. The children will be taught different rules and then apply the rules to spellings in other sessions.

English: In class we will be reading 'Alice in Wonderland’ and ‘The Spider and the Fly’. The children will complete a range of writing tasks around the texts as well as develop their grammar skills by looking at the authors use of punctuation and language. The children will also participate in a weekly grammar session which will have on-line homework set on that objective.

Maths: In Maths we will be following the Singapore scheme of work. We will be looking at the value of digits in numbers up to 10, 000. We will also be working on all four written methods as well as securing rapid recall of our times tables. By the end of Year 4 children are expected to know all their times table facts up to and including 12 x 12. We will have a focus on different times tables over the weeks and the children will have a test each week on the times table we are looking at. They will also carry out games and sessions to help them.

Foundation: In Science we are looking at plants, what makes them grow and the different functions of parts of plants.

In R.E. we will be looking at Buddhism and Christianity throughout the year. This term we will focus on places of worship and Christmas.

In D.T. we will be making our own salads. We will be tasting a variety of salad ingredients and then designing our ideal salad. The children will be using a variety of skills such as peeling and chopping.

History will have a main focus on Egyptians as well as 3 other ancient civilisations. We hope to plan a visit to the museum to enhance our learning on the Egyptians.

If you require to speak to me, please do not hesitate to call into school.
