Year 4

Welcome to the first term of Year 4! I hope you are all rested after the Summer and raring to go, we have a busy and exciting year ahead of us.

In Mathematics, we will be focusing on place value, number and the four operations.  Wolves in the Walls will be the focus of our English work. Topic will be Geography based this term, asking the question, 'Where do people choose to live and why?' More information will be sent out via the newsletter.


This term, P.E. will take place on Tuesdays and ThursdaysPlease make sure both PE kits are in school at all times (indoor and outdoor) and that all items have your name in them. The children will be going to Worsley Leisure Centre for their weekly swimming lessons on a Thursday - Mrs Gibson will be at the pool from 8.30am and all children should arrive by 9am for the register.


Homework will be the Pick'n'Mix format, that will be attached below. Please aim to complete one activity a week. A special 'Homework Celebration' day will take place on Monday 19th December. Spellings will be put on Spelling Shed on a Friday, the children have a week to learn them and will be tested the following Friday - our first test will be Friday 16th September. We also have Times Table Rockstars, this is another brilliant way of engaging the children with the learning of their timestables. 


Please try to read at least 4 times a week  as it makes a huge difference to your learning! If parents/carers are able to ask you questions as you read, this will support your comprehension skills greatly. To clarify right from the beginning of the year, children are allowed to read their own book every now and again, however, please make the school book a priority as it gives children the opportunity to access a wider range of texts and vocabulary.


 If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to speak to me or make an appointment with Mrs Renshaw at Reception.

We look forward to a fabulous year ahead!
