Year 4 - Kestrels and Rabbits

Year 4 Newsletter

Welcome back Parents and Carers. We hope you had an enjoyable summer break and are ready for a great school year.                                                     

 

The year 4 team ask that we work together as a partnership to help your child reach their full potential. If you have any questions or concerns please come in and see us. Communication is key to a successful partnership.

 

Literacy

This term our class novels are “My Story Roman Invasion” by Jim Eldridge and “The Iron Man” by Ted Hughes. These books will support our learning through Literacy and our topics, ancient civilizations and design and technology.

 

Spellings will be given out on a weekly basis and will be taken home to learn. Both year 4 classes will be given their spellings on Wednesday to be tested the following Tuesday. Please ensure that your child learns their spellings, ready for this test.

 

Reading

Please listen to and encourage your child to read at home. It is helpful to discuss the content of the books with your child, to develop their comprehension skills and understanding.

 

Maths

Maths homework will be set each Wednesday. This homework will need to be returned by the following Tuesday at the latest. The homework will be based around the work that the children have undertaken during that particular week in school. This enables us to consolidate their learning and address any misconceptions. This term our focus is place value, addition and subtraction.

 

 

Science

Our topics are electricity and states of matter. We will be looking at where electricity comes from, how we use it, how we make circuits and looking at which materials conduct and insulate electricity. With states of matter we will be investigating gases, solids and liquids.

 

Swimming

 

PE will be as follows:

Kestrels – Wednesday, Thursday

 

Rabbits- Wednesday, Thursday

 

We are looking forward to a great year working with you and your child.

 

Thank you for your support.

 

The Year 4 Team
