Class 13 Year 4 2019 - 2020

                        Welcome to Class 13's page

 We hope that you have all had a good Christmas break and everyone is feeling refreshed and ready to start the new term.

We can't wait for the many exciting things that we have planned.

In English this term, we will be writing our own fantasy stories thinking about all they learnt last half term when studying the text 'Reilly'. We will then go on to look at explanation texts, focusing on the text, 'The Teacher Pleaser'. Followed by the children writing about their very own pleaser machine. Who will they choose to please?

In maths we will be exporing the starategies for written multiplication and division. We will also complete a unit on area. There will continue to be a BIG focus on times tables again this term - by the end of the year, all year 4 children should be able to recall their timestables up to 12x12 and will be completing an online, statutory times tables test. We ask that you practise them, both in school and at home. Times tables really will help you with ALL areas of your maths work.  Don't forget that we also have TIMES TABLES ROCKSTARS for you to access on your computer, tablet or smart phone from home!  Your child has their own log in and password - if you are unsure of this, please come and see me and I will arrange for a new one to be printed for you. There will also be a club on each Monday in the computer suite, at 12.30pm for extra practice!

Our R.E topic this term is: 'Jesus the Teacher'. 

Our Science Topic is: Our Living world, where we will be exploring habitats, food cycles, changing environments and teeth amonglst other things. 

PE: We will be exploring a gymnastics unit thinking about movement and transition, sequencing rolls and balances.

And finally, our continuing History/Geography/DT/Art theme is: Invaders and Settlers, where we will go on to explore the Vikings.

Useful information:

Spelling tests will be held on a Monday and new weekly spellings will be given out in order for you to practise them, ready for the test the following Monday. It is SO important that you continue to learn these. 

Homework The children will continue to have their English and Maths homework workbook sent home every Friday, which is due in the following Wednesday. It is really important that you are completing and bringing homework in on time - this will be monitored. 

P.E - P.E kits are to be available in school every single day.

Any further information on what we will be learning in Class 13 over the next half term, calendar dates and other useful information can be found on the curriculum map in the files.

Thank you for all of your support!
