Year 4

Welcome to Year 4 with Mrs Craggs.

 

 

Our Topic this term is Tudors and we shall be visiting Shrewsbury in November.  Our art, geography and English learning will be linked to our topic.
We shall be learning about solids, liquids and gases in Science. 
In Year 4, PE days are Tuesday and Friday. It would be useful for children to have PE kits in all week as we sometimes have one-off PE lessons delivered by external companies. Music, with Mrs Tann, is on a Thursday afternoon.
We also have a residential visit to Standon Bowers. You can download the visit information here - Letter.

 Spellings will be set and tested on Tuesdays and the children will be encouraged to bring spellings home to learn.

 Home Learning may consist of Maths, English or Topic related activities, reinforcing objectives met in class. Some homework will be set on Purple Mash. 

Reading at home: It is vital that all children read for 10-15 minutes every day and to an adult at least three times a week.  Talking to your child about what they are reading and what they understand is increasingly important as they become more competent readers.  If you feel your child would benefit, please hear them read on a daily basis.

Please encourage your child to keep a record of their daily reading in the left hand page of their journal.  Please sign and/or comment to indicate your involvement.  Rewards are given to children who keep a daily record and are heard to read by an adult.

Children will read to an adult in school each week during guided reading sessions, but this is not usually recorded in their journal.

 Please do ask, if there are any queries.  Many thanks for your support.

I look forward to an exciting term in Year 4!
