Year 4 Teacher

Welcome to Year 4 

Class Teacher: Miss Moss 

Shared Y3/4 Teaching Assistant: Ms Dagnall 

 

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 Monday afternoon. Swimming will be their first PE sessions. A letter will be sent out regarding attending swimming so please await information regarding swimming lessons. 

 

Spellings 

Spelling practise at home will be postponed until after October half-term. Please await further information nearer the time regarding at home spellings. 

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. 

 

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 until after October half-term.  

 

Our topic this Autumn term is...

Ancient Egyptians! How lucky are we?! The ancient Egyptians is such an interesting area to study and we can't wait to get started! 

Our novel to go with our topic this term is: Secrets of a Sun King
