Year Four

Hola! This year Year Four will be taught by:

Miss Furness and Mrs Stirrup smiley

 

 

In the Spring Term, we will be learning all about...

The Groovy Greeks

We are starting our new topic with an 'Ancient Greece Workshop' led by Tony North from TimeTrips. We will be learning all about Greek Arts and Culture and will be making a model of the Parthenon and all children will make an individual piece of Greek Art.

During this topic we will be developing our Geography skills by locating Greece on a map of Europe and a World Map. We will be researching Greek culture, food and traditions to find out all about Greece today. We will then be developing our History skills by finding out about Ancient Greece, we will be learning all about Greek Gods and Goddess' and will be reading and writing our own Greek Myths in English lessons. We will be reading recipes to make traditional Greek food and then will be writing our own instructions for how to make them. 

Science

This term in Science, we will be focusing on 'Electricity.' We will be learning about primary and secondary sources of electricity, dangers involved with electricity and we will be making circuits using switches, motors and buzzers. We will also be planning and carrying out many exciting investigations during this topic. 

P.E

In the Spring Term, PE sessions will be on Thursday afternoons, children should keep their PE kit at school at all times as this can change.

We will be swimming on Friday afternoons and children need to make sure they bring their swimming kit on a friday morning.

Homework

Children are given a homework log every Monday. They must practise their class and individual spellings, times tables and read their reading book every night at home and get an adult to tick and sign the log. The logs are checked by myself or Mrs Stirrup every morning during registration and if they aren't signed the children will stay in at dinner time to practice.

Times Tables

The expectation for times tables is that the by the end of Year 4, children should know all the times tables up to the twelves. This means knowing the tables in order, in random order and knowing the division facts for all times tables. Tables are tested fortnightly by Mrs Stirrup but must be practised daily in order for children to acheive their personal target. When they have learned them all, they are tested by Mr Wilson to become a 'Times Tables Champion' and have their photograph on the wall of fame. We are hoping to fill the board with photographs of Year 4 by the end of this school year!

Spellings

Class spellings will be given out every Friday and will be tested the following Friday. These words are taken from the Spellings objevtives for Year 4 from the English Curriculum and all children are expected to be able to spell and use these words independently in their writing. Individual spellings are tested and given out fortnightly by Mrs Stirrup and must also be practised daily in order for the children to achieve their personal target and make progress.

 

 If you have any questions please do not hesitate to come in and ask us.

Thank you

Miss Furness
