Welcome to Year 4
Welcome to a very different Spring Half Term!
We would like to say a huge thank you to all students both in school and at home, as you are all doing so well with your learning and dealing with an unusual situation.
We really do miss you and can't wait until we are all back together. But for now, stay focused, enjoy the outdoors and keep in touch.
We are always here for you, so if you have any questions or queries then please don't hesitate to speak to us.
The Year 4 team!
May we remind you that reading with your child is an extremely important daily habit that will help them develop a life long love of reading, as well as building key learning skills and enhancing their general knowledge. It is also a relaxing way to end the day.
We have provided copies of our class novel - Kensuke's Kingdom for free reading but this is not a requirement, simply a choice should children wish to enjoy.
Times Tables and Sumdog
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 Sumdog, it is a great resource for practising times tables and key Maths facts. New challenges are added weekly.
There are currently no spelling tests taking place in school as we feel we have covered a lot of spellings in the first term at school. We also know that there is enough time left in the school year to complete the spelling patterns required in Year 4.
Therefore, we thought this would be an opportune time to consolidate the children's learning of statutory spellings.
Attached is the Year 3/4 statutory spelling lists (which all children should know by the end of year 4) and also a PDF file with ideas for learning these spellings.
We suggest learning 2/3 per day and having fun with the formation, then trying to use the word in a sentence.
Please feel free to contact school if you have any issues or concerns and arrange a chat with one of the team.
