Year 4 2022 - 2023
Welcome to Year 4
Dear parents/carers and year 4 children,
Welcome to the Summer term in year 4.
We hope you have had a lovely Easter break and are feeling energised and looking forward to more year 4 learning.
We will use Power Maths resources to focus on the following topics this term:
Times tables rock stars (TTRS) will be part of our homework and in school learning every day. By the end of year 4, the children will be confident recalling all their tables up to 12 x 12.
Our English focus will be Alba the hundred year old fish by Lara Hawthorne and Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare. The children will write as a final piece for each text an information board and a playscript.
Alongside this, we will study spellings and grammar following the EdShed programme of study.
In history, we will learn about Ancient Greek life, Greek gods and goddesses and the origins of the Olympic games. In geography, we will locate Greece on the map and look at climate, land use and settlements.
In science we will also study sound. The children will discover how sound is made!
PE lessons are on Tuesdays and Fridays in year 4 and the children are requested to come in their PE t-shirts on these days.
Weekly homework will be set on Ed Shed for spelling, maths fluency and grammar quizzes or maths quizzes (set on alternate weeks). There will also be 15 garage games set on TTRS which will support the children’s recall of times tables facts at their current level of achievement.
Please support the children to read their Accelerated Reader books for 20 minutes each day at home. Planners will be checked regularly, and house points will be awarded to children who record what they have read in their planners.
