Year 4 Teacher

Welcome to Year 4 

Class Teacher: Miss Moss

Keep checking our class page for updates on all of the fantastic things we are doing in and out of school!

 

PE 

PE is on a Tuesday afternoon. Please send your child into school every Monday wearing the following: 

• Plain white T-Shirt
• Plain tracksuit or leggings (black) may be worn
for outdoor lessons during winter.
• Black shorts
• Pumps
• School jumper is fine if it is cold outside.
I suggest children wear tracksuit bottoms or leggings as we will be doing PE outside if weather permits.

 

Spellings 

Spellings will be tested every Wednesday morning. Children will be given the opportunity to practise their spellings in school but must also practise at home as part of their homework.

In school, we will be focusing on the 'Common Exception Words' for the current year group and previous year groups where necessary. These are words that cannot often be spelt phonetically and are most commonly used in their writing.

 

Reading 

Reading is incredibly important to us at St John's. School policy states that children must read at home at least three times a week in addition to any reading done in school.  Reading must be recorded in their yellow reading record book and signed by an adult. Reading records will be checked and books changed every Wednesday.

 

Timestables

In June 2020 we will be completing the online multiplication tables check (MTC). This was introduced by the government to determine whether pupils can recall their times tables fluently, which is essential for future success in mathematics. 

Find out more here.

Year 4 should continue to access TT Rockstars. The children will be having weekly slots in the Computer room using this programme and they will also have in-class sessions to improve their accuracy and speed. BUT...children can access TT Rockstars from home from computer and an ipad/tablet! All they need is their login details. They are stuck inside their reading records. If they don't have them, please see Miss Moss.

Homework

Last year, children were completing topic homework mats as part of their homework. This is postponed at the moment.

 

Our topic this Autumn term is...

Anglo Saxons and Vikings! 

Our novel to go with our topic this term is: Beowulf.
