Welcome back Year 4
We hope you had a lovely Easter.
A big, warm welcome to everyone from Mr McCabe, Miss Chong, Mrs Reville, Miss Ruderham and Mrs Sethi!
Below is a presentation for Year 4 parents, carers and pupils. It provides information about the staff; our topics; our daily timetable; our expectations and our rewards. :-)
We have also uploaded our long term planning for the year. This maps out our curriculum coverage and is used by teachers to plan units of learning. A copy of our weekly timetable has been uploaded so you can see which lessons we will be enjoying each day. We have uploaded a document intended to help parents and carers ensure their children are fluent, confident readers who love books!
Below this, there are some useful learning websites which will help children with their number work, telling the time and reading.
Our Topics in the Summer Term:
English: Animal reports, Earth Day and Tar Beach
Maths: Telling the time, Shape, Space and Measure
Science: Working Scientifically
Religious Education: Finishing the life of Jesus, then Islam followed by Morality
History: Manchester followed by The Romans
PSHE: Healthy Lives
Art Award: Staying safe
Art, Design Technology, Computing and Grammar will run through all of our core and foundation subjects. The children are taught French and Music by our specialist teachers. Mrs Preston teaches French once a week and Mr Rees teaches music once a week. PE is taught twice a week: once by our PE coach Mr Mernock and once by the class teacher.
Homework will be given out on a Friday and will be due in the following Wednesday. This will usually consist of two pieces of written work as well as reading homework which consists of a minimum of three reads per week, ideally for 15 minutes with an adult on hand to ask questions. We keep it simple and manageable.
PE will take place on Monday and Thursday. Please ensure that your child has a full kit (white t-shirt, blue or black shorts and black pumps/trainers) with them so that they can make the most of each of the sessions. PE kits will be sent home at the end of each half term to be washed.
If you have any questions or need to speak to us, please feel free to:
- speak to member of the Year 4 team at the end of the school day
- message your child's class teacher over Dojo
- arrange a meeting via Mrs Siddal or Mrs Deakin in the school office
We are always here to help you!
