Welcome to Year 4
Mr. M. Tran (Y4 teacher)
Mrs. E. Barrett (PPA teacher)
Miaa A. Boyne (LSA)
Year Four is the second year in Key Stage Two; we use cross-curricular projects in which subjects overlap to reinforce and compliment each other. Each project is planned carefully to meet the needs and capabilities of the child. We aim to develop the knowledge, concepts, skills and attitudes necessary for your child's whole development. We embrace 'Learning Without Limits' where children are not put into boxes but are given the space to grow and to surprise themselves (and us) about what they can achieve.
Y4 weekly HOMEWORK:
- Bug Club - Reading 5x week
- TT RockStars - Times Tables practice
- NumBots - Maths core skills

Year 4 Team
It's the summer term and there's lots to look forward to as we delve into a new topic! Keep your eyes peeled for more information soon...
Are we glad to have everyone back or what?! This Term we've been getting stuck into our topic 'Were the Vikings Vicious?' by immersing ourselves in the gory, gruesome world of the fearless, mighty warrior, Beowulf! We've loved describing the hero and the monster using a range of techiniques and have been writing our own invented 'defeating the monster' stories based around the story!
For maths, we've been delving into fractions and deepening our understanding of what fractions represent. This term we've consolidated our knowledge of identifying and representing fractions, adding and subtracting fractions as well as converting improper fractions and mixed numbers! We've been working with a partner to solve problems and we are using "I know... I know... Therefore..." to prove our understanding of a problem!
RED NOSE DAY
For Red Nose Day this year, we raised money by holding a non-uniform day and children made donations! We discussed what Red Nose Day was all about and even had a quiz! I also set the children a challenge and every marble they earnt for 'expected behaviour' I said I would match with £1 and donate it to Children in Need. By the end of the week, the children had earnt 25 marbles! Which I was more than happy to double and donate to CiN! Well done Year 4!
Now that we've been getting a little more sun, we've been making the most of our playground by practising our weekly spellings! We also dusted off the hockey sticks to practice some core skills such as dribbling, passing and shooting!
Welcome back everyone and say hello to Year 4! I am very excited to see you all and get started! Our first two days of the new term will involve two induction days where we will be getting to know each other better and sharing our experiences since we've been away. Together we will put together our Class Charter that will set the expectations we will maintain throughout our time in Year Four. We discuss rules and routines around measures to keep ourselves and each other safe in our bubble. We will also have time to introduce our exciting new topic for this Term 'Can I Walk Like an Egyptian?' Please find information for the topic and other important information here. Any further information will be communicated to yourselves via Class Dojo. See you all soon, Mr Tran!
