Class 14 Year 4 2018 - 2019

Miss Broad


Welcome to Class 14's page!


I hope that you have all had an enjoyable yet restful half term break! It is now time to welcome you to the second half  of the Spring term. As usual, we have many exciting things planned for this half term so I hope that you are as excited as I am to get started!

Our English work this term will begin by focusing on 'The Great Kapok Tree' by Lynn Cherry. Our theme will be persuasive writing and we will be exploring a range of persuasive techniques. For our writing piece we will be creating a persausive letter to discourage the use of plastics and focus in on the impact that this has on animals in our oceams.

We will also be studying poetry, looking at creating images through using similes and metaphors

In maths there will be a BIG focus on times tables - by the end of the year, all year 4 children should be able to recall their timestables up to 12x12. We ask that you practise them, both in school and at home. Times tables really will help you with ALL areas of your maths work. We now have times tables books in order for us to complete regular practise questions and tests. Don't forget that we now have TIMES TABLES ROCKSTARS for you to access on your computer, tablet or smart phone from home! For our main maths topic, we will be focusing on measuring the area of rectinlinear shapes and then we will move on to fractions. 

Our R.E topic this term is 'Jesus the Saviour' In this topic we will be thinking about the question – What made Jesus so special? There will be a main focus on the teachings of ‘Holy Week’ and the stories that link to this.  We will begin our topic work by finising off the 'Our Living World' topic. We will then begin our 'Tudors' history topic.  

Useful information:

- Spelling tests will be held on a Monday and new weekly spellings will be given out in order for you to practise them, ready for the test the following Monday. It is SO important that you continue to learn these. Each week someone will be awarded 'star speller' and recieve some special star speller privilidges, (keep practising and this could be you)! 

-Swimming Throughout the Spring Term CLASS 14 will continue to go swimming on Wednesday afternoons. (For specific dates please see the Curriculum map attached to this page). 

- Homework The children will be given an English and Maths homework workbook that they will complete their homework from each week. In year 4 homework is given out every Friday and is due in the following Wednesday. It is really important that you are completing and bringing your homework in on time - this will be monitored. 

- P.EP.E kits are to be available in school every single day. 

Any further information on what we will be learning in Class 14 over the next half term, calendar dates and other useful information can be found on the curriculum map attached to the bottom of this page. 



Thank you for all of your support!
