WELCOME TO THE YEAR 4 CLASS PAGE!
Please could you send all pictures and information on your child's home learning to the class email address. Thank you, Miss Hourigan
Miss Hourigan and Mrs Tattersall welcome you to Year 4!!
We are both looking forward to helping the children in all aspects of their learning, if you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask. If you would like to discuss something in depth please make an appointment with the office.
In Year 4 we learn about a wide variety of topics that excite and interest the children. They will become ever more confident and independent and can take greater control over their own learning.
The children are encouraged to talk about the things they excel at and things they are trying hard to get better at. This way the children progress well at their own level. Year 4 is a fun, bright and safe environment where the children are happy to learn.
Please see our Curriculum Maps below to find out what we will be covering this half term.
Please see our termly stars to find out what has been happening in our class each term.
Our class novel this half term is:
Around the World in 80 Days
We follow the No-Nonsense Spelling Scheme in school. Each week, we will learn and practise a different spelling rule in school and we will receive a test each Friday. Please help by practising these spellings at home if possible.
Children in year 4 are expected to read a minimum of 3 times each week. The book they have read with the page range should be written in their Home Reader books and signed by an adult.
You will also receive weekly spellings and times tables to practise in preparation for a test each Friday. These spellings and times tables will also be practised as part of our work in class.
Children will be given homework every Friday and this is expected to be completed and handed in on the following Friday. Homework will be English and Maths work. If your child has any questions please come and see myself or Mrs Tattersall before Friday.
Tickets are now on sale at King George’s Hall. https://kinggeorgeshall.com/whats-on/sing-together/ Please come and support your child, it’s much more exciting singing to a full hall.
Links for children to use at home
I have put all the songs on the website – www.singtogether.info/teachers-resources Password SingTogether2020 (case sensitive) so this link should take them directly to the correct page.
As the videos were too big to put on the web quickly, I have put them on Youtube and they are in the public domain. The videos for T-Rex (fast and slow) and Only One are there. The link to the Sing Together Channels are here:
T-Rex Rock! sing together slow - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W35E9opKzac
T-Rex Rock! Sing Together normal speed - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n0fr1wgIpKI
Only One Sing Together sign language video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iPrZrhDrDw0
Hope this works. I have added the words Sing Together in the titles too so maybe that will make them more obvious when people are searching (I’m really new to Youtube!)
Over the Easter holidays there will be no work for you to do, but I would like you all to have a break and some fun (as much as we can on lockdown). I have put some ideas and website links in the tabs above, if you are stuck for ideas. Anything brilliant that you have come up with please email me and I will add it to the links.
Please still send me some pictures of what you have done.
Thank you everyone for all your hard work and perseverance during the past two weeks, your work has been amazing like it always is in class. You should all be very proud. Have a great Easter holiday, take care and stay safe.
