What’s that noise? A bash? A crash? A shake, a rattle or a low, bass hum? Which do you prefer – an acoustic singer or a booming brass band? A solitary voice singing sweetly and quietly or a magnificent choir lifting the roof? Take out your ear plugs as you journey through the valley of sound and find out about instruments, the sounds they make and how they are produced. Discover how sounds are made and which sounds travel the furthest. Then, sing up and compose a class song for the local talent contest, Class Factor. Can you write a number one hit? Be sure to stand up straight, warm up your voice and sing your heart out. When your performance is done, sit back and listen to calming classical melodies, a soothing lullaby or your favourite boy band ballad. Can you hear me over there? Or do I need to TALK MORE LOUDLY?

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.
Spellings will be given out every Friday and a test will take place the following Friday.
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.
