Year 4 Teacher and Music Curriculum Lead
Learning Support Assistant
Welcome to Year 4!
Our Year 4 teachers are
Mrs Bennett and Mrs Pace (Class 9)
Miss Beckwith (Class 10)
We are assisted by Mrs Smallwood.
Here, you will find information about what we do in Year 4. You will be able to see photographs of some of our work and see some of our displays.
Every child has a guided reading session once a week and where possible, they are heard to read individually by the LSA or teacher. Children will be given plenty of opportunities to read during the week: whole class reading, guided reading in small groups, independent reading and buddy reading. Please encourage your child to read their own books at home for literal understanding and inference. Please ensure your child's reading record is signed at least once a week.
This year the children will prepare for the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist. We support this preparation in school through prayer, hymns and regular visits from Father Tim.
Year 4 have a wonderful opportunity to learn and play a musical instrument. Every Friday morning, a specialist music teacher will deliver guitar lessons to each class. The children will be given a guitar which is theirs to use during the year. Please take care of these instruments and ensure they are in school every Friday. Remember practice is extremely important for progress.
Year 4's PE days are Monday and Wednesday please ensure children have wear their kits on that day!
Thank you for your support.
Homework – Summer term 2
Children should write 10 complex sentences to include words on their spelling list – these words should be underlined.
Continue to practice your times tables up to 12x12 and complete MyMaths activities.
Children will be formally assessed over the next term including multiplication tables.
Homework Year 4
In Year 4 Homework is set on a Friday and should be completed and brought into school for the following Friday. Homework will take a variety of forms and may consist of a topic based piece of research, a worksheet, SPAG activity etc. Similarly to Year 3, Maths homework will be set each Friday using the ‘My Maths’ online programme and pupil progress is tracked by the class teacher online. This should be completed for the following Monday. An ongoing Maths topic to be looked at in year 4 is Time. We ask the children to ask questions about time and look at watches and clocks to help them.
Spelling lists are issued on a half termly basis. The children will be tested on a Friday. Should you misplace your spelling list, you will find a copy on our school website on the Year 4 page.
The children are expected to know by heart all of their multiplication tables up to 12 x 12 by the end of Year 4.
We are keen to help the children become independent learners, so please encourage them to organise themselves and remember their homework, so that they are developing the skills themselves.
