Welcome to Year 4
Welcome to the Class 4 page. Here you will find the parent letters, spelling lists and
information on times tables and KIRFs (Key Instant Recall Facts for Maths).
Please feel free to contact school if you have any questions or concerns to arrange
a chat with either Mrs McMeekin or any of the adults working in class 4.
We have a great half term planned with lots of fantastic learning opportunities - watch this space!
Long Term Plan
Please make sure your child practices their spellings ready for their tests on each Friday. Our first test begins on the 14th September. Each child has been sent home with their appropriate list and has a spare copy at school to use. They are also available in the links below.
Please use the correct list for your child. We are also going to learn Year 4 statutory words each week this half term.
Times Tables & Maths
Times tables are another life skill which will help children, not only throughout their school life, but also in the adult world!
It is therefore essential that you help your child to learn ALL the times tables from x2 - x12. Knowing times tables by heart makes Maths easier for children and aids them in completing daily challenges.
Please also remember to use Times Table Rockstars, it is a great resource for practising times tables and will help your child prepare for the statutory test later this year. Your child should have their log in details in their reading book, if you need these again, please ask a member of the team.
This half term, the Key Instant Recall Facts that we want to focus on are the 6x tables. You can find the Year 4 KIRFS here too. We will work on these during the half term, then complete an assessment at the end of term.
Cliffe Castle workshop
Here we are learning at Cliffe Castle - mummifying a body, collecting artefacts for burial and drawing maps of ancient Egypt.
Take a look at year 4 getting active and raising money for Children in Need.
