Class 6 - Mrs E Smith - Year 4

YEAR 4 CLASS 6 CLASS NEWSLETTER

Hello and welcome to our page!


Learning

Pupils will have the opportunity to develop their numeracy and literacy daily. This will be within dedicated English and Mathematics lessons and via cross-curricular activities designed to support, develop and enhance their skills.

Literacy

This term we are studying a short Film, "The Dreamgiver" and we are using this clip to write a recount review.

We will also be writing a persuasive letter.

This year we will be putting a big emphasis on handwriting and presentation. The children are working hard on handwriting and are taking a lot of pride in their work.

Each pupil will take part in a Guided Reading session every day. This involves group reading, reading related activities and individual reading with a member of staff.


READING BOOKS


Reading books in book bags will go home every day. Children can change their books when they want to but need to bring them back every day for staff to hear them read.


Please continue to write comments in their reading records (for example “Enjoyed this book and could tell me what was happening” or “Made a good attempt at sounding out new words” etc.) Children can also write comments in their record book.


In Maths we are learning to:

  • Read and write numbers to 10000

  • Compare and estimate with numbers up to 1000

  • Know the value of each digit in a 4-digit number

  • Multiply and divide numbers by 10 and 100

  • Use mental strategies to recall multiplication tables for 2,3,4,5,6 and 10 and use to solve division problems.

  • Identify multiples of 2,3,4,5, 6 and 6 use the term multiple and factor.

It would be very helpful if you could help your child to practise their 2, 3, 4, 5 and 10 times tables at home. Also learning to tell the time at home would be of great benefit.


Here is some helpful information!

P.E

We have PE on Monday and Thursday. The children need to have a white t-shirt, black shorts, black joggers, trainers or plimsolls. Please could the children keep their PE kit in school for the half term to enable all children to be prepared for all PE sessions. It will be sent home on the last day of half term.


Just a quick reminder that jewellery is not be worn in school for safety reasons!


Please put your child’s name on all items of clothing, so they don’t get mixed up when dressing and undressing!


READING BOOKS


Reading books in book bags will go home every day. Children can change their books when they want to but need to bring them back every day for staff to hear them read.

SPELLINGS

We have a weekly spelling session on a Monday and children practise their spellings throughout the week. We do not have weekly spelling tests, however, the children work together to test each other.


WATER BOTTLES

It is very important that children are hydrated, in order to work at their best. Please send your child in with a water bottle everyday.


SNACKS


We are  a Healthy School, therefore if you would like your child to have a snack at break time, please provide fruit. 



Thanks for your help!
