Welcome to Year 4
The Year 4 Staff
Mrs Daniell (4SD) and Mrs Izatt (4EI) are the Teachers in Year 4. Mrs Withers and Miss Moth are 4SD’s Teaching Assistants and Miss Smith is 4EI’s Teaching Assistant. PPA cover is provided every other Wednesday by Mrs Lowe in 4SD and alternating Wednesdays and Fridays every week by Mrs Davis in 4EI. 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 weekly engaging lessons in Science, Religious Education, Topic, Spanish and Physical Education. We have the opportunity to visit the library each week and we are currently learning how to play the clarinet.
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 on Thursday.
• On Wednesday we have English based homework (either handwriting or a grammar task) which is to be handed in on Friday.
• Every other Thursday we have Topic homework which is to be handed in on a Tuesday. All of the Topic homework information (dates and activities) can be found in the topic leaflet which is handed out at the start of every term.
We take home our learning journals and reading books every night and bring them back to school each day. We read every night and have our journals 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.
