Miss Moss

Year 4 Teacher

Welcome to Year 4 

Class Teacher: Miss Moss 

Teaching Assistants: Ms Hudson and Mrs Maiden 

Mr Deacon will be teaching Year 4 every Tuesday. 

 

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 with Mr Deacon. Please ensure that your child has a PE kit in school so that they can take part. 

 

Spellings 

Our spelling test is every Tuesday morning. Please encourage your child to practise their spellings at home.

In school, we are 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. 

We do the Reading Raffle every Friday! 

 

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.
