Miss Saunders, Mrs Pine and Mrs Spencer would like to warmly welcome you to the year 4 class page. We hope that you will be regular visitors so we can keep you up to date with what we have been learning, any class news and other key activities or events that may be taking place.
Please look through the site below for our most recent learning, achievements and useful information such as letters and topic overviews.
We are looking forward to getting to know everyone over the next few weeks and are thrilled to be sharing your child's learning journey with you.
If you have any questions or queries that you'd like to discuss, please don't hesitate to contact us via the school office.
The national curriculum specifies that pupils should be taught to recall the multiplication tables up to and including 12 × 12 by the end of year 4.
The purpose of the multiplication tables check is to determine whether pupils can recall their times tables fluently, which is essential for future success in mathematics. It will help schools to identify pupils who have not yet mastered their times tables, so that additional support can be provided.
To help support your child in this, multiplication practice should happen at home to further consolidate the learning taking place in class! Each week Year 4 will have a specific multiple they will be focusing on in class as specified in the Year 4 Multiplication Tests document located on the homework section of the class page. The children will be tested on the focus multiple every Friday!
To help support your children at home, practice little and often with some quickfire questions - don't forget to include the related division fact as well! I have attached a website which has some helpful tips on how to practice at home!
I thank you for your support in this!
Cushions - We are deciding to trial the children having cushions on their chairs to make the classroom a more enjoyable and comfortable learning environment. If you would like to, please send your child in with a cushion for their chair, the size of the cushion should be no bigger than 45 x 45 cm and should not be so thick that the children will not be able to work comfortably at their desks!
Thank you in advance,
Key Text - For the remainder of the Autumn term the children will be using the book The Explorer by Katherine Rundell. We do ask that the children bring their own copies of the text for use in class. Please could you ensure that your child brings a named copy as soon as possible for use in our Literacy sessions!
Mathletics task will be set weekly on a Friday. All children have their login details stuck on the inside cover of their Reading Records - if this is not the case, please let us know through the school office!
Children are expected to read daily where possible, this should be recorded in their Reading Record and signed by a parent/carer. Please ensure that the Reading Record is in school every day so that it can be checked!
