Year 4 Autumn 2021

Welcome to Year 4. We have had an excellent start to the new term and it has been lovely to meet the new children.

Year 4 children are lucky to have 4 different adults to teach and help them in class. We are looking forward to the Autumn term with all the new learning we will be doing.

Although the following information was sent out with the children in the Summer term, here is a brief reminder of some important information.

  • PE will be on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
  • Bring a water bottle into school every day to help you stay hydrated.
  • Please name all your uniform and kit as an awful lot goes missing after parents/carers spend so much money on these items.
  • Bring a healthy snack to eat at morning break time.
  • Make sure the reading record is signed and completed by an adult daily and bring this in everyday together with your home reading book. It is important for children to read everyday so that they can access the curriculum, progress with their reading skills and maintain a love for reading and books. Please take a look at the reading advice above which provides information about the different ways you can help your child with reading.
  • New spellings will be given out on Friday so that children have plenty of time to learn the words ready for a test on the following Friday.
  • Please continue to help your children to learn all their multiplication facts. The Government had intended to introduce a tables test for all year 4 children for the first time in June 2020. However, this was abandoned because of the disruption with learning due to Covid and lockdown. As far as we are aware at the moment, all year 4 children will be tested in Summer 2022. We will keep you updated about this.
  • Homework will be given out every Thursday and it needs to completed and returned the following Thursday.

 

Year 4 have researched Ancient Egypt for their homework and made models based on things they have discovered.

We have been learning about mummification
