Welcome to Year 4!
Class 4 - Mrs Spruce, Mrs White and Miss Natasha
We have PE on Tuesdays and Wednesdays so please make sure you have your kit.
Homework is given out on Fridays and due in on Mondays.
Spelling tests are on Fridays, where new words are also given out to learn for the following week.
Children should read daily. We will write in planners when your child has read to an adult and would like you to do the same so that we know how much practise they are getting. All children have been given a scheme reading book for them to read and a sharing book, a book that they chose off the shelf to share, you may want to take it in turns to read it.
Our Curriculum Vehicle this term is creating Anglo-Saxon and Viking themed pop-up books to donate to the children's area at Stafford library!
Please click the pdf to see our Curriculum overview for Autumn term.
Most importantly please keep practicing your times tables - this can be done on Times Tables Rockstars, Mathsframe or simple chanting and checking.
Our Maths for the first half term will be using place value knowledge to understand larger numbers that include 4 digits. Class 4 will be comparing, ordering, writing and reading a variety of 4 digit numbers and will then move onto addition and subtraction using the formal written methods.
Please remember to read as least three times a week! The more reading you do, the better you will get! Remember that the children in class 4 have a scheme book to read as well as a shared book that they have chosen to read at home - please read with them when you have the opportunity.
Our English unit is all about Neil Armstrong! We are completing a non-fiction unit where the children will write biographies as well as diary entries. Class 4 will be working hard on their use of punctuation, descriptive features and fronted adverbials.
