Class 14 Year 4 2018 - 2019

Miss Broad


Welcome to Class 14's page!

Welcome to year 4! I hope that you have had a fun-filled yet restful break and are feeling refreshed and ready for the start of our new academic year. We have many exciting things to look forward to in our first half term together in year 4, I hope that you are as excited as I am!

Our English work this term will focus on the story of 'Beowulf' by Rob Lloyd-Jones. We will be continuing to follow the Talk 4 Writing approach for this unit of work, which will begin with us creating and reciting the story orally through a text map, in order to memorise and learn from its structure.  For our non-fiction topic we will be focusing on non-chronological report writing about mythical creatures. Amongst all of this, we will also be spending some time focusing on poetry. Learning from poetical structures and creating some of our own.

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. For our main maths topics, we will be looking at place value in four different numbers, becoming confident in understanding how different digits are represented in a number. We will then move onto looking at addition and subtraction, using both written and mental strategies. 

Our R.E topic this term is 'The Bible'.  We will learn all about what the Bible tells us about God and his love for us. Our topic for this term is 'The Vicious Vikings' (a personal favourite topic of Miss Broad's). We will discover all about who the Vikings were, where they settled and the lives that they lived. We will also take part in some D&T activities duringthis topic. We will be creating our very own Viking Long Boat! For Art, we will look at the work of Gustav Klimt and attempt to replicate his style of painting. 

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 This year, the year 4 classes will swim at different times of the year. Class 14 will begin their swimming lessons later on in the year. Letters will be given out in due course, to inform you of the specific dates and transport cost. 

- 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. 

- Our P.E days are Monday and Thursday however it is expected that P.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. 


Let's start as we mean to go on and make our first half term together in Year 4 one to remember!

Thank you for all of your support!
