Welcome to Year 4
The Year 4 Staff
Mrs Daniell (4SD) and Mr O'Boyle (4OB) are the Teachers in Year 4. Mrs Hensley and Mrs Brown are 4SD’s Teaching Assistants and Mr Batten is 4OB’s Teaching Assistant. PPA cover is provided every other Friday by Mrs Davis in 4SD and by Mrs Sellers in 4OB. The children always look forward to these sessions.
What does our week look like?
The week is one which is jam-packed with learning! We have daily sessions of Maths and English alongside engaging lessons in Reading, Science, Religious Education, Topic, Spanish, Music and Physical Education. We have the opportunity to visit the library each week.
In Year 4 we have homework each week:
On Mondays we have spellings which we learn ready to be tested each Friday.
On Tuesdays we have Maths homework which is to be handed in each Thursday.
On Wednesday we have English based homework which is to be handed in each Friday.
We take home our reading records and reading books every night and bring them back to school each day. We read every night and have our reading records signed by a trusted adult at home. We then change our books regularly in school.
It is also important for us to regularly practice our times tables. In Year 4 we need to confidently know all multiplication and division facts for times tables up to 12x12. We can practice saying them in chants, ask our family and friends to play games and ask us quick fire questions and we can play times tables games online to help improve our knowledge. We can also play on Times Table Rockstars!
