Welcome to Year 4!
We are a class of 30 fantastic pupils. Mrs Tremlett teaches on Mondays and Tuesday afternoons and Mrs Doughty teaches on Tuesday mornings and Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.
We are supported in class by Mrs Graham and Mrs Chadwick, and Mrs Medley and Mrs Legatt also work with children in our class.
This half term our topic is 'Extreme Earth' and we will also be learning about 'States of Matter' in Science
For this half term, PE lessons will take place on WEDNESDAY mornings and THURSDAY afternoons.
After this half term, sessions will be on THURSDAY and FRIDAY afternoons.
Children will need PE kit for all of these sessions.
TT Rockstars homework will start in week beginning 2nd September in order to make sure all children can access their accounts and to iron out any issues.
New sessions will begin each Sunday, and their 5 sessions of games should be completed by Friday. Each Friday, Mrs Doughty will check to see which children have completed their homework and keep a record of this.
This year we will continue to practise the times tables we have already learned (10, 5, 2, 3, 4, 8) and we will also introduce the rest of the times tables gradually.
For the first half term we will recap all the tables from Year 3. We will begin to introduce new tables after the October half term.
We will be continuing with the 'No Nonsense Spelling' programme this year. This means that we will be teaching discrete spelling lessons three times a week, and assessing how well children have retained the spelling patterns at the end of the half term. Spelling lists will be sent home in a green spelling book each Friday to be practised at home. The book should be handed in Thursdays so that new spellings can be put in. There will be no formal weekly assessment of the spellings, as this will be done at the end of each half term.
