Welcome to Year 4 KB class page! We are very excited for the year ahead as new friends and classmates!
This week's Spelling Pattern: Test Monday 26th February
This week children will identify up to 15 words from their own learning that they need to spell correctly. Each child will then be tested on 12 of these words randomly, so get practising!
Dates for the Diary!
Black History Month- October
We will be celebrating the achievements and recognising the role of black people in history. Watch out for some special workshops too!
Today was European Languages Day!
Our class selected to represent Russia in the Eurovision Song Contest! We also learnt about different landmarks and languages used in countries around Europe and participated in a Languages Quiz! Venus won! We had the chance to learn about and try to use the Russian alphabet too.. take a look!
For this unit of Maths, we are mastering number.
The national curriculum objectives we are learning about are:
In Year 4, children need to be reading with an adult/ older sibling regularly!
Each child has an orange reading record that needs to be completed at least twice per week, being signed by whoever reads with the child. You are welcome to make comments or encourage your child to note ideas about what they have read. Children can select books from the class reading corner, the school library or a book from their own home.
Children are also encouraged to use the red Reading Journals (that were given to them last year). Once 8 activities have been completed, children will be able to select a 'Prize Book' to take home and enjoy at any time!
Spellings will be tested weekly in Year 4.
Each week we will work as a class to investigate a new spelling patter, for example words using the pattern 'ou'.
Children are then encouraged to investigate more words at home to be tested on 10 random works on a Friday.
As we work on a fortnightly timetable, P.E will either be on Monday and Tuesday (week 1) or Tuesday and Wednesday (week 2).
Children need to have the correct P.E. kit for both indoor and outdoor P.E, at school at all times.
As a healthy school, children are encoruaged to bring in healthy food e.g. yoghurt, fruit or snack bars, for their breaktime snack,rather than crisps and chocolate
