Welcome to Class 4 - Miss. Reynolds

Welcome to Class 4

Spring term

PE Kits: PE will be on a Wednesday. PE kits will be sent  home to be washed at half term.  Kits and pumps should be named.    Swimming will be on a Thursday. Please ensure your child had a kit in school every Thursday morning with their towels, swimming goggles (if needed), swimwear and swimming cap (if needed).

Reading: Year 4 children are expected to read a minimum of 3 times per week.  Children may complete some independent reading but please initial the planner to I know that the children have read.  You can also log any concerns that you may have. It would be advisable if you could listen in your child read aloud once per week to help discuss meanings of words and help with fluency. Children who are free readers are encouraged to alternate between a book of their choice and the higher level book band school readers. Children are also encouraged to read on 'Bug Club'. 

Spelling: In Year 4, children have two lessons per week with an adult focusing on learning the spelling rules. 

English : In class we will continue to our class text 'Cool' as well as 'The Lost Happy Endings' and 'Charlotte's Web' . Children will continue to have 2-3 whole class guided reading sessions as well as complete questions relating to the text we are reading as a whole class.   We need to encourage the children to recognise that they read for different purposes and that pleasure is an important one.  Children will be encouraged to read different genres and poetry. As a class we will be writing for lots of different purposes and we will be looking at different styles of writing.  During the year we will be introducing more punctuation to develop and improve writing and practicing our grammar.  We will encourage the children to widen their vocabulary and investigate the meanings and origins of words.  

Maths: In Maths we will be continuing to look at fractions (simplifying, adding and subtracting), telling the time, looking at decimal numbers and understanding their values, as well as looking at comparing amounts of money.

Foundation: Science for the term is focusing on States of Matter. The children will learn about the water cycle as well as carrying out a number of experiments to change the 'state' of materials.

In R.E. we will be continuing to look at Buddhism as well as looking at  the meaning of Easter. 

In Art we will be using various techniques to complete our pictures for the  PAN project. 

Geography this term  will be 'Rivers and Coasts' which will involve a trip to Quarry Bank Mill.
