Year 4

Welcome to Year 4

Mrs Chellew
Mrs Foster

I am really looking forward to teaching you all this year; we have some fun and exciting topics to learn about across the year, including a European study of Barcelona and finding out all about the Romans. Mrs Foster is our very experienced learning coach who will be supporting in class this year.

Mrs Foster and I have been impressed by your focused start to the year with many of your names already proudly displayed on our class celebration board. Remember to always follow our school rules:

Be Ready

Be Respectful

Be Safe

We have also been impressed by the presentation of your work in your books and look forward to every child achieving their pen licence by the end of the year.

Below, you and your parents will find some information about what we will be learning this year and our expectations for homework.

Keep up the good work Year 4!

Homework

Your child will be given spellings to complete each week. These will be based on the spelling rule we are currently learning in class as well as words from the Y3/4 statutory list. They will also bring a reading book home to read daily by themselves or with an adult at home. Reading is so important for your child’s progress therefore we recommend 10 minutes reading each night. In Year 4, we ask that parents sign their child’s reading diary. However, children are encouraged to write in their own comments.

Every Thursday, your child will be set homework via an online platform – Education City. They will have a week to complete the tasks set. Your child’s login has been sent home to you with instructions on how to access their account. This is such a fun resource for the children to access their learning from home. Enjoy!

We will also set special projects and ‘teach for ten’ presentations for your child to complete from time to time.

In Year 4 we actively encourage independent research so if your child wants to complete some extra work at home around some of the topics we will be learning about, please encourage them to bring it in to share with the class.
