Our Learning Journey below tells you what we will be learning in school this week. This page is updated weekly, ready for the start of school on the Monday morning. Please ensure that you refer to it weekly to see what we are learning about in school.

Homework is set weekly on a Friday, to be completed by the following Thursday. Please click on the Homework page tab at the top of this page to find out the current tasks that have been set.

Please remember to come in your school PE kits every Monday and Friday. 

Also, remember to bring your water bottle containing water only.

Thank you, Mrs Windel. x

Please continue to record the reading that is happening at home in the new Reading Diary. We are now encouraging the children to record daily reading with parents/carers initialling and then also signing once a week. These are checked regularly in class and initialled by an adult.

Summer 1st Half Term 2022 ~ Welcome to our class page!

We are now in our final term of 2022 and will be working hard in all areas of our learning.

Our School Day. We can enter school at 8:40am ready to start at 8:45am and we finish at 3:00pm. Thank you for being prompt and for keeping to these times, as this helps us to keep the whole school running smoothly.

Our PE days are Monday and Friday, so please send your child to school in their outdoor PE kits on both of these days.

This page is intended to help you to feel more involved and informed of everything that we are doing in our class. Please feel free to make any suggestions as to information that you would like me to include on here that you feel will benefit both yourselves and your children. Thanks, Mrs Windel x.

I have uploaded our LKS2 Curriculum Yearly Planner 2021-22 so as you can see all of the learning that we have planned for this academic year. This term's Curriculum Planner is attached in the files section, giving an overview of the learning that will take place during this first term in Year 4. I have also uploaded the Year 4 Overview for the Maths No Problem scheme, so as you can see which areas of maths we shall be covering.

This will be updated weekly, before start of school on a Monday.

Week beginning Monday 16th May 2022

English:

This week we will use our text to:

  • speculate, hypothesise, imagine and explore ideas together
  • expand noun phrases
  • write a diary

This week's spellings for you to learn, ready for a test on Friday 20th May, are the prefixes 'super-' 'anti-' and 'auto-'  ~ supermarket, superman, superstar, superhuman, antiseptic, anticlockwise, antisocial, autobiography, autograph & automatic.

We will also continue with our guided reading comprehension sessions.

Maths: Our daily arithmetic lessons cover many different areas of the year 4 maths curriculum and the focus changes daily. 

We will complete our MNP unit of assessment for all areas covered so far this year, including:

  • changing between unts of time
  • addition and subtraction with 4 digit numbers
  • word problems
  • fractions

ICT: We will continue with our 2Animate unit.

Science: We will continue with our Rocks unit by looking at how mountains are formed.

French: We will learn new words and phrases in our unit 'Feeling unwell' & 'Jungle animals'.

Religious Eduation: We will consider the question 'What is the best way for a Jew to show commintment to God?' whilst discussing beliefs and practices in Judaism.

Physical Education: We will continue with our athletics unit and work on our core balance skills.

PSHE: We will talk about 'Who helps us stay healthy and safe?' using the SCARF unit 'Rights and Responsibilities'. 

Dates for your diary:

We will finish this half term on Friday 27th May, and you can find the term dates for this academic year on the 'School Office' tab under 'Holiday Dates'.

PPA:

Our PPA is on Friday afternoons this year, in which we will have French and PE with Mrs Riley. 

Snacks:

Please can we remind parents that if you wish to provide a break time snack for your child it should be a healthy choice and not sweets. 

PE:

Our school PE kit is your child's House Team colour (Maple-red, Beech-yellow, Elm-green or Ash-blue), black shorts and pumps/trainers. For outdoor PE kits, please have tracksuits or jogging bottoms and long sleeved tops. 

Reading:

Please read with your child daily as this will have an impact on all areas of their learning.  They have a Reading Diary that you should date and together record their reading in.  You may wish to write a comment but please do not feel that you have to, simply a record of what has been read is really helpful. Each child has received their new Reading Diary and their newly assessed reading level will be inside the front cover by the end of the first complete week in school and this is updated during the first 2 weeks of every half term. Thank you to all of those parents/carers who are writing in them so regularly, it is very much appreciated.

If you wish to pass on a message to myself, please feel free to write it in their Reading Diary but then please ask your child to bring it to me as we do not always check the planners on a daily basis.

Spellings:

This term we will be learning our spellings both at home and in school. The spellings that are set on a Friday are for your child to practise writing and learning over the following week at home and we will test on them in school on the Friday. We are using Spelling Shed as an online tool to support our learning.

Purple Mash

We use Purple Mash in school for our computing teaching. As a school, we have purchased home access for your child, and they will have their login details in the front of the reading diary. They are free to use this website whenever they wish at home, and sometimes tasks will be set for them to complete too.
