Class 15 Year 4 2017 - 2018

Miss Davies

Welcome to Class 15's page! smiley

Welcome back to school and to your first half term in year 4!

I hope you have had a wonderful summer and are back feeling refreshed and ready to learn lots of new and exciting things! 

Our English work this term will be based on the story 'Beowulf'. We will story map and orally rehearse parts of the text in order to learn from and become familiar with its structure. Our focus will include exploring words and phrases that capture interest, along with looking in detail at the use of adjectives, nouns/pronouns, prepositions adverbs and much more! Finally, we will be planning, drafting and writing our very own myth!                                                                      


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 the rest of our maths work we will be looking at place value and thinking about the importance of understanding the value of all of the digits in numbers up to 4 digits! We will also focus on securing some written methods for addition and subtraction, mental methods, measurment including telling the time and much much more! 

Our R.E topic this term is 'The Bible', where we will be exploring how the bible was created, its purpose, how we use it and explore many of the stories that have been told within it.

Our History topic will be 'The Vikings'  where will be looking at when, how and where they lived. We will be incorporating drama, art and music into this area of the curriculum too! 

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. 

-Swimming will be held every Wednesday, all children are expected to participate and bring a towel, swimming trunks/costume and  a hairbrush. Further information and specific dates can be found on the curriculum map, attached at the bottom of this page. 

- Homework has changed slightly this year. Children will now 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!

- Our P.E day is Monday, 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 15 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. 


Parents/Carers: If you should like to be informed about all of the exciting things that we get up to in Class 15, then I will be posting regular blog posts on our class page, including pictures, of which I hope you will enjoy reading and looking at!

 I hope you are looking forward to all of the exciting learning that we have ahead, just as much as I am!

Thank you for all of your support!
