Welcome to Year 4
Class Teachers: Mrs Nicola Hartley
Welcome to Year 4. On this page you should find links to our curriculum overview for the year, our current learning enquiry question along with other useful information including home learning expectations.
PE will take place on Wednesday afternoons and Friday afternoons led by Torquay United - children can wear their School PE kit to school on these days. Children in Year 4 will also take turns swimming at Brixham pool on Wednesday afternoons.
Children in Year 4 will be set weekly homework. This will be either activities and learning to support the work done in class in either English, Maths or our current learning enquiry. This will be sent home on a Friday as a paper copy and an electronic version will be uploaded to our classdojo page just incase the paper copy doesn't make it home! In addition, children will be expected to engage in reading, the learning of personal spellings and multiplication facts. The knowledge organiser (key facts and knowledge for each learning enquiry) can be downloaded using the download button opposite.
Children need to bring their reading record book to school everyday. Parents are asked to hear children read at home at least three times over the week and sign the reading record book. Children will have daily opportunities to change their reading books and know how to do so independently. Children can also quiz on the books they have finished reading at home or in school. The link will take you to the AR website
In Year 4 children will take part in a national 'multiplication checker' test in June. Over the course of the year, we will be consolidating learn facts and focusing on the x7, x8, x9, x11 and x12 multiplication facts. Children will need to be able to recall any multiplication fact in 6 seconds. Children will be encouraged to learn and practise these facts using TTrockstars and Hit the Button - see links.
In addition to a weekly spelling lesson, children will collect spellings that they have misspelt in their learning journals. These will be sent home to practise and learn in their reading record books. The Year 3 and Year 4 spellings can also be found in the centre of the record book. Spelling shed has games and activities to help children learn the Y3 and Y4 key words - see link.
