In history, we will be learning about the Maya- Key Question: 'Was building pyramids the only similarities between the Maya and Egyptians?' and in Geography, our topic will be 'The Rainforest'. In RE, will develop the children's understanding of beliefs in Christianity and in PHSE we will be learning about the law by following the Pol/ Ed scheme, please see folders for an overview. The art topic is 'Fabric of Nature.'  In music the children will be learning to play the ukulele. Our science topic is Habitats and Living things.  

In mathematics, we will focus on multiplication and division, co-ordinates, angles, quadrilaterals and data handling. Please continue to practise your timetables and number bonds to 100 as often as possible; these are absolutely key for future mathematical development. Please see below for information regarding the year 4 multiplication test that will take place in June 2024.

Reading is essential for so many reasons, enjoyment, wellbeing, vocabulary and knowledge to name but a few. Remember ‘We learn to read and then read to learn!

Here are just a few ways to help your child:
Share the weekly timetable with your child.
Ensure they bring their reading book and reading record to school every day. Inside their reading records are login details, it is a good idea to take a note or photograph of these just in case the reading record goes missing. The Seesaw login will enable you to see photographs and videos of your child. We will let you know when they are posted. They can also post photos and work onto it from home.
Get to school in plenty of time for an 8:45am start.
Hear your child read every night and read to them.
Encourage your child to complete Spelling Shed and TTR at least 4 times a week. (Spelling tests are on Friday mornings.)
Remind them to complete their homework and bring in their folder in every Thursday. In addition to daily reading, Spelling Shed and TTR, the children will be set one small task each week.
Send your child to school with outdoor shoes / boots , a water bottle and always send a coat even if it doesn’t look like rain!
Your children need to come to school in PE kit on Monday and Wednesdays.
Thank you for your support, we are really looking forward to a fun packed year. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

 Homework:

Thank you for encouraging your child to read daily. This is so important for both enjoyment, mental health and academic development. You learn to read and then you read to learn!

If your child can spend regular time on TTR and spelling shed this will also help them. Little and often is the key, but please don't worry if this isn't always possible, there has to be a balance. Down time, spending time with family and friends, being outside and doing physical activity are also very important.
A small task will be set on a Thursday and this needs to be completed and returned every Thursday.
Spelling Tests take place on Fridays and new spellings are set on Friday.

 Arrival Time: Just a polite reminder that year 4 arrival time is 8:45am.
