WELCOME TO OUR YEAR 4 PAGE!
Welcome to Year 4!
Mrs Slinger (Mon-Thur, mornings)
The week in Year 4
P.E. is on Monday afternoons each week. Children need a full PE kit every week. Kits should be left in school and taken home every holiday for a wash!
Swimming is on Wednesday afternoons. Children need a swimming costume and towel. Goggles may also be used.
Reading Books and Records - books will be changed on Friday, though may be changed at any time during the week as requested. However, an adult will read with your child at least once a week so please remember to bring books and records in every day. Please also remember to sign the reading record book every time you read with your child as they are all working towards a Reading Challenge - aiming to read at least four times a week, every week.
Maths - please take some time to practise times tables with your child. They can play some fun games to help on this website http://www.multiplication.com/ and should be using www.ttrockstars.com too. Children have been given their logins for TT Rockstars but please contact me if you require another copy. Remember, they are working towards seeing themselves in the TT Rockstars Hall of Fame!
Spellings - Spellings will be sent home at the beginning of each half term to be tested at the end of that half term. Whilst we will be practising spellings in school, these also need to be practised at home. Try sounding out the words, spelling them with fridge magnets and using them in sentences to really embed the spelling patterns.
Our current Topic is 'What would you have done after school 100 years ago?' We are particularly looking at 1910-29; researching jobs, schooling, fashions and leisure time activities.
In Science we are studying 'Electricity'; the uses, dangers, conductivity and investigating simple circuits.
