Year 4 2023 - 2024
Welcome to the first term of Year 4! I hope you have all had a super summer, I cannot wait to get started on our new topics and get to know you all! :)
On this page you will find out all that you need to know about our class routines and all of the exciting things we are learning about! I will keep you updated with our learning journey but don't forget to watch out for the fun and exciting things that we do on our twitter page @LittleLeighSch and our facebook page facebook.com/littleleighprimary.
I will be teaching in the classroom each day except from Tuesday morning, when Mrs Tomlinson will be teaching French, RE, Computing and one of our PE sessions.
PE in Year Four will be taught on Mondays and Tuesdays this term. Please make sure that your child comes to school in the stipulated kit for those days.
As always, please feel free to approach me at pick up or drop off if you would like to discuss any issues surrounding your child’s learning or welfare or if I am unable to chat at this time, please don’t hesitate to send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Here's to another exciting half term!
Best wishes, Miss Oldknow and Miss Tomlinson
This half term, we will be asking the question:
What happend when the Romans came to Britain?
Throughout this term, the children will learn about the Roman invasion of Britain and its impact on the lives of the Celts. They will consider whether the Roman settlement was a positive experience for all involved, and explore the long-term legacy of the invasion.
We will be reading a selection of poetry and stories.
As well as our guided reading and shared reading in school, it is important that you read regularly with your child as often as possible. Your child will have access to a book of their choice to read in school. During your time reading with your child at home, try to ask them questions relating to the characters and the events from the book. Try to encourage your child to make predictions based on what they have read so far.
Our key text for this term is Leaf by Sandra Dieckman. We will be working towards writing an outsider narrative and an information report.
This term in Maths we will be focusing on these curriculum ares:
- Place Value
- Addition and Subtraction
In school we will be working hard on our times tables in preparation for the Year 4 Multiplication test. The multiplication tables check will be taken over two days in Summer term. It is really important that in year 4, children get as much practice as possible on all of their tables.
The children will get their own log in's for Times Table Rock Stars and will be shown how to use this so that they can practice their tables on this at home also.
There are some great resources online that you can use to practice at home too, such as:
- 'Hit the button' for quick fire questions
- On Youtube there are lots of great songs, such as Mr DeMaio!
- Mathsframe - times table check (This is a replica of the official government TT test).
- Free online worksheets - www.timestables.me.uk
In science this term we will be learning all about 'Electricity'.
