Welcome to Year 4!

Teachers:   Mrs Jones (Class 7)             Mr Niland (Class 8)                    Teaching Assistant:  Mrs Grogan, Mrs Lavin

To all Year 4 children,

We hope that you are all well and safe! Unfortunately we will not be seeing out the year with you and we are both really upset by this. We would therefore love to hear from you all and see the fantastic work that you have been doing! One thing we really hope you are all doing regularly is reading! Reading is of great importance so please make sure you are finding time each day to pick up a book. Don't forget you can use the Borrow Book App as you are all members of Stretford library! This week hopefully the weather is a little better so you can spend sometime outside learning, exploring and playing. Make sure you are all making the most of the sun!

Mr. Niland and Mrs. Jones

Please find attatched a message and task from Mrs. Lucas:

During this time of uncertainty, we would like to keep as much routine as possible for the children. Please use the suggested timetable for the year 4 children (this will be updated regularly)

Our P.E. takes place every Thursday afternoon, please ensure that your child has full kit for this day.

Homework will be given out on a Friday to be completed by Wednesday of the following week.  The homework will consist of one piece of Maths and one piece of English (this will change once in a while when children may receive a special homework). 

Spellings will now be sent home on a Friday, giving the children one full week to learn them, ready for a test the following Friday morning.  All homework is to be completed to the standard we expect in school.

 

Your child should aim to read every day for at least 20 minutes.  See the Literacy page for some top tips!

English

 

In the coming weeks the children will be using a short animation called The Blue Umbrella as a stimulus for their writing.  Within these lessons children will be learning the correct use of adjectives, similes, complex sentences, subordinate clauses, adverbs, rhetorical questions, direct speech, alliteration as well as writing about feelings and opinions.  They will build up a collection of sentences over a period of weeks, with the end result being the children writing a narrative story based on the animation.  This will be paired with weekly SPAG lessons and comprehension lessons.

 

Religion

During the Autumn term the children will be exploring two topics.  The first topic is The Bible; here children will learn how to find a Bible reference as well as learning various Bible stories and about the Bible itself.  The second topic will explore putting their Trust in God and the importance of the word trust.

 

Topic

The children will be studying the Romans as their first topic of Year 4.  They will learn about the Roman Invasion of Britain, the Roman army as well as finding out about the Celts led by their fierce leader, Queen Boudicca.

 

Science

The children will be learning all about the States of Matter.  They will learn to define solids, liquids and gases and explore their properties.  The children will gain an understanding as to who the particles in each are formed and also how states of matter can change in certain materials.
