Welcome to Year 4!
Remember you are the one who can fill the world with sunshine - Walt Disney
In Year 4, Miss Pickerin is the teacher and Mrs Oakey is the teaching assistant.
This year we have lots of exciting learning opportunities to look forward to! Below is the Long Term Plan for this year that provides an outline of our learning this year.
In the case of another national or local lockdown, lessons and resources will be added to the Seesaw each day.
Below are a selection of other websites/resources you can access:
Oak National Academy publishes lessons daily each week for all subjects.
BBC Bitesize has a variety of lessons for English, Maths, Science, History and Geography. Many of which have extremely helpful videos to explain the learning to the children.
Our class text for this term is How To Train Your Dragon by Cressida Cowell.
The book tells the story of Hiccup Haddock! Everyone says he is useless but he must lead ten novices in their initiation into the Hairy Hooligan Tribe. They have to train their dragons or be banished from the tribe for ever. Can Hiccup save the tribe and become a hero?
The children will have a new list of 10 spelling words each week. The list of words will be stuck into their spelling book on Monday morning so that they can take their spelling book home and practise them. We will practise the spellings in class each day using a variety of different activities. The weekly spelling test will take place every Friday morning. You can see the spelling lists for each week below.
At the end of each day we have 10 minutes of story time. Our current class reader text is Brightstorm by Vashti Hardy. Due to lockdown we were unable to finish this book before Easter. We are also reading The Boy Who Lived With Dragons by Andy Shepherd.
This term our topics are Decimals and Money. The children's homework will be based on their times tables this term to support them to practise for the times tables check coming up in June.
TT Rockstars is a fantastic and fun way for your child to practise their times tables. They will be set the times tables they currently need to practise to help them to become secure with each table and improve their speed. We have a display in the classroom where the children can move their names up as they achieve a new rock status. The children have their log ins stuck into their reading record.
Indoor PE is on a Monday and outdoor PE is on a Friday. The children can come into school on these days wearing their PE kit.
Don't forget you can log in to Seesaw to send any work you have completed at home for me to look at.
Homework will be given out on Friday and will be related to learning we have completed in English that week. The maths homework for Summer 1 will be relating to times tables.
Homework must be returned to school by Tuesday of the following week.
