Welcome to the Year 4 home page!
Our class teachers are Mrs Connor, Mrs Curry, Mrs Carney, Mrs Evans and Mrs Swinbank.
Long Term Overview
Children will receive a reading book, that will be changed as they become confident in reading it and complete an Accelerated Reader quiz. The quiz allows the child to showcase their knowledge of the book and ensures they have retained the required learning, before moving to another book. We will hear the children read throughout the week on a one-to-one basis. Children will also read to adults during other activities, such as Guided Reading. The reading books that are sent home should be practised regularly at home so that the children become fluent and confident, when reading.
In Year 4, children will receive spelling and timetables homework weekly, alongside their reading books. This is to enhance their learning in reading/maths – the children will be taught sounds and words throughout the week.
Year 4 children will be completing all PE lessons on a Monday and Wednesday. The required uniform for PE is shorts/ tracksuit trousers and a t-shirt.
Within Year 4, Class Dojo is used to reward children where they can collect Dojo points. It should also be used to communicate with the teacher about your child.
