Year 4 2019 - 2020

Y4 teacher

Welcome Back to Year 4!


Welcome to Spring term 1 in year 4. We will be starting our term off with a Design and Technology week where the year 4 children will be creating slingshot cars from scratch!

This term will be more History heavy with our main focus being on the Romans. As well as this we will continue to teach a broad and balanced curriculum with many other subjects.

P.E. - This term the children are lucky enough to have Mr Atherton from Fallibroome come and teach them invasion games for one lesson and also Mr Hayes coming in to teach orienteering skills for the other.

Please keep an eye on the class page website if you would like to see what we have been up to during our lessons or need reminding of any dates for the diary.

Any question or queries, please don't hesitate to catch me at the end of the day.

Thank you,

Miss Pasquill

Homework Days

Maths - Friday to Friday
English - Friday to Friday
Spelling - Friday to Friday 
Reading - Tuesday to Tuesday
Timetables - Thursday to Thursday

Homework Details

Maths - Children must complete one page of the Schofield & Simms books each week. In year 4 children are also expected to complete two times table sheets which will be in their times table folders. It is recommended that children play on TT Rockstars weekly to encourage rapid recall of all timetables in preparation for the Year 4 timetables test in June.

English - Children will receive one piece of English homework each week. This may vary each week depending on what the focus is. It will usually be a short comprehension piece or a SPaG worksheet.

Spelling - Each week will have a spelling pattern focus that will relate to the words given in the spelling test on Fridays. It is compulsory for children to complete a certain amount of games on the interactive app 'Spelling Shed' before their test which I will monitor.

Reading - Children are expected to read for 20 minutes a night. If you are able to listen to your child read whenever possible and question them on the book this would be beneficial to ensure they are fully comprehending what they are reading. Children are expected to record when they have read in their reading records and this should be signed each week by a parent/carer ready to be checked ahead of Tuesday. Please note, I will be asking children questions on the book to ensure they have read and understood.

Timetables - Children will have 1 or 2 sheets to complete each week. Children should complete these alongside accessing TT Rockstars as much as possible.

Your support with all homework and reading is very much appreicated so thank you in advance!
