Welcome to Year 4

 Current Topic

In the Summer term, our first topic is "Blue Abyss". So grab your wet suit, we're going deep into an underwater world of incredible coral and mysterious sea creatures! What do divers get up to under the surface? We might create fishy tales about amazing watery worlds. We will definitely be looking at art inspired by our island nation.

For our second topic, "Playlist"... Ssh... what's that noise? A bash? A crash? A shake, rattle or roll? Take out your ear plugs as we journey through the valley of sound, making instruments and finding out how sound is produced. Then we'll be composing and singing our own songs in a talent contest as well as listening to evocative or calming classical melodies.

If you have any questions or concerns that you would like to discuss with us then please do drop into the office to make an appointment to see us, we are more than happy to meet with you to discuss any issues

We have been very happy to see so many of the children wearing their full correct school uniform and setting such a brilliant example for the rest of the school, thank you.

We would like to remind you that all children should have a school PE kit to change into as we will have regular lessons each week.

We encourage all children to bring a water bottle to class, which they can refill at regular intervals during the day in order to keep themselves well hydrated and to keep their brains working to the best of their ability.

In Year 4 homework is vitally important for the children, as it helps to reinforce the learning that has gone on during the week.

We urge you to support and encourage your children with their homework and do let us know if the homework is too difficult or indeed too easy! 

We will provide your child with a book in which to complete homework, and stick in any sheets.  We encourage the children to keep their homework book in pristine condition, taking pride in, and celebrating, their home learning.  We do not allow children to draw on the cover of any of their books.

 

Homework will be given out on a Friday and must be handed in (in the homework book) on a Tuesday.



In addition all children should continue to read at home, at least three times a week with an adult, and then have their reading records signed.

Children should have their reading records and reading books in school every day, but reading records will be checked by one of the Y4 team once a week.
