Class 15 Year 4 2017 - 2018

Miss Davies

Welcome back to Class 15!

Welcome back to to our final half term of 2017! I hope you have had a lovely break and are feeling ready and refreshed for all the wonderful learning that we have ahead of us in Autumn 2!


Our English work this term will be focusing on explanation texts! We will be looking at texts such as 'Until I met Dudley' and 'The Teacher Pleaser'. We will be orally rehearsing the texts and learning from their structure. We will plan, draft, write and edit our work to ensure that it is the best it can be! We will continue to try our best with legibly joined handwriting too. There will be a focus on learning how to use causal conjuntions, fronted adverbials and a variety of organisational devices! 

In maths there will be a BIG focus on times tables - by the end of the year, all year 4 children should be able to recall their timestables up to 12x12. 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. We now have times tables books in order for us to complete regular practise questions and tests. For the rest of our maths work, we will be continuing to look at written column addition and subtraction, using the inverse to find answers and applying our knowledge of this to word problems! 

Our R.E topic this term is 'Trust in God'. We will focus on the question 'What does it mean to trust?' and think about how this relates to God and a range of storys in the Bible. Our Science topic is 'Sparks and Waves. Through this topic we will discover all about how electricity works, learn to build our own working circuits and think about insulators and conductors. Then we will move on to learning all about sound where we will get the opportunity to find out how sound is made and how it travels! Included in this, there will be lots of chances to play some instruments of our own! For Art we will be looking at the work of Walter De Maria 'The Lightning Field'. 

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. 

-Swimming will be held every Wednesday, all children are expected to participate and bring a towel, swimming trunks/costume and  a hairbrush. Further information and specific dates can be found on the curriculum map, attached at the bottom of this page. 

- Homework has chanegd slightly this year. Children will now be given an English and Maths homework workbook that they will complete their homework from each week. In year 4 homework is given out every Friday and is due in the following Wednesday. It is really important that you are completing and bringing your homework in on time!

- Our P.E day is Monady however it is expected that P.E kits are to be available in school every single day! 

Any further information on what we will be learning in Class 15 over the next half term, calendar dates and other useful information can be found on the curriculum map attached to the bottom of this page. 


Parents/Carers: If you should like to be informed about all of the exciting things that we get up to in Class 15, then I will be posting regular blog posts on our class page, including pictures, of which I hope you will enjoy reading and looking at!

 I hope you are looking forward to all of the exciting learning that we have ahead, just as much as I am!

Thank You for all of your support!
