Welcome to Year 4!
We have had the most amazing start to Year 4 and are looking forward to continuing this in the Spring term! The children have a fantastic attitude towards their learning and have already produced some remarkable pieces of work.
Our PE sessions this half term are Tuesdays and Thursdays. Please ensure your child has both an indoor PE kit as well as an outdoor kit, including trainers.
Reading and spellings
The more you read, the more you’ll know! Our stories get exciting in Year 4 and we escape to some weird and wonderful places through our imagination. Please let your child share these experiences with you by allowing time each day to share a book and discuss the themes and concepts hidden within.
On Thursdays, the children will be tested on their spellings. These are located in their diary and need to be practiced each week. There are lots of fun ways to rehearse spellings, e.g. speed tests, copying them in colours, creating rhymes to help remember them. If you need any help supporting your child, please come and talk to us.
Multiplication table check
Throughout Year 4, the children will regularly practice their multiplication tables. In June, they will be required to take part in an online multiplication tables check as the national curriculum specifies that pupils should be taught to recall the multiplication tables up to and including 12 × 12 by the end of year 4. There are some games and activities to support your child in learning their multiplication tables on our purple mash webpage here: Purple Mash
Thank you for your continued support at home!
