Class 15 Year 4 2018 - 2019

Miss Davies


Welcome to Class 15's page!

Welcome back and a Happy New Year to you all!

I hope that you have all had a wonderful Christmas break, having spent lots of quality time with your friends and family. It is now time to welcome you to the first 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 focussing on 'Until I Met Dudley' by Roger Mcgouch and Chris Riddel. We will be focusing on some of our Non-Fiction objectives in order to create an explanation text of our own. We will be following our Talk For Writing structure by creating a text map, rehearsing the text orally, learning from its structure and features, along with a variety of grammar and vocabularly games. We will also be using other explanation texts to inspire us; this will include 'The Teacher Pleasing Machine!' 

We will also read the text "The Great Kapok Tree" by Lynne Cherry so that we can write a persuasive letter. Finally in English will read some Aesop's Fables so that we can write our own narrative.

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 topic, we will be looking at multiplcation and divison. We will be learning both mental and written methods. 

Our R.E topic this term is 'Jesus the Teacher'. We will be exploring how Jesus came to show us how to live, finding out about Jesus’ early life and learn about his presentation in the Temple.  We will begin our topic work by finishing off our Science topic 'Sparks and Waves'. We will then move on to another one of our Science Topics 'Animals and Habitats'. For Art, we will be creating a variety of repeated patterns based on Animal Prints. 

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 receive some special star speller privileges, (keep practising and this could be you)! 

- Homework - the children will continue with their English and Maths homework workbooks that they will complete  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.E - 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. 



Thank you for all of your support!
