GRATUS!!!!! to Year 4!
Or in English welcome!!!!!! We hope you've had an amazing Summer!!!!! This term our topic is 'I am Warrior' where the children will learn about the Roman Invasion of Britain and all things Roman, Celt and more. During the term we will also be finding out about electric circuits and the children will be given the opportunity to make one of their own. There will be lots of art, design and technology, maths, english, PSHE, P.E., computing, history and geography which will all link to our 'Roman' topic. There will also be music and modern foreign languages (Mon Dieu) and our Religious Education themes for the term are 'Christian and Hindu' and 'The Incarnation of God'. We will definately be very busy!!!!
P.E. lessons are on Tuesdays pm and Thursday am during this term and a full P.E. kit (white t-shirt and black shorts/leggings/joggers and trainers/pumps) are to be in school on these days.
We ask that children read at least three times a week at home. Please write a comment in your child's reading diary for their home reading to be recorded towards our Bronze, Silver and Gold reading badges. Any child who has not read at home will spend some of their break time at least once a week reading with an adult.
Photos of class events, visits and successes will be shared through the Class Dojo app. Please make sure you check it regularly to see what is happening in your child’s class and use it as an opportunity to discuss with you child what they have been doing. Please be aware however that messages sent during lesson time may be missed so if it is anything urgent then please contact the school directly.
Homework will be set and posted on dojo as and when required for the children to complete.
Maths Times-table apps
Times Tables are a big thing in Year 4 as in the Summer term the children will have a 'Multiplication Tables' test. There are 25 questions based from 2 to 12 times-tables. We have invested in 2 apps to help children develop the skills and knowledge they need for achieving a pass mark in the test. These are 'Reflex Maths' and 'Times-table Rockstars', there will also be competitions among the class and across the school to embed these skills. Usernames etc will be sent out in September.
