Year 4

Welcome to Year 4

Summer  Term 2024

 

In the Summer Term, the children will explore geographical concepts and skills linked to the geography unit, 'Norway'. They will explore the human and physical geography of Norway and compare it to the UK as well as investigating how Norway is an innovative Eco country.

 

 In Science, we will be investigating Animals including Humans  and will be  using their new skills in DT to design, make and evaluate Mechanical Systems

 

In outdoor P.E the children will be building upon their cricket skills to play small match games and will  refine different Athletic events.  

 

Our PE Days are Tuesday (outdoor) and WEDNESDAY (indoor). Please come to school dressed in your PE Kit on these days and you will remain in your PE kit for the whole day.

Multiplication Test

In the summer term 2024 - the children will be sitting a multiplication times tables test. They will be asked lots of questions and be given approximately 6 seconds to answer. This is why daily practice of the different times tables needs to be learnt off by heart so they can be answered automatically. We have set up weekly times table battles on TT Rock Stars which we would strongly recommend the children take part in. They can also practice individually using TT Rock stars or using the Mathsframe multiplication checker which replicates the test the children will be given. To complete the times tables test the children need to answer all the questions correctly which is very tricky, so the more they practice the better prepared they will be! 

Here is a link to practice your timetables:

Dates for Diary

Homework

Homework will be set each week below.  We  have a pink homework exercise book to record homework in.  Children are expected to either mark alongside a parent/carer or use the answers provided to self-mark. Marked homework is handed in on the following Monday. 

 

Children will be set three English tasks and three Mathematics tasks, not including daily reading. Our recommendation is that children complete Task 1 for English and Maths on Tuesday, Task 2 for both on Wednesday and Task 3 for both on Thursday. This short, frequent style of homework will support children to consolidate their learning. However, this is not compulsory and timing of homework can be managed accordingly to suit family schedules. 

 

Snack

Please remember to bring in a water bottle each day.

You may bring a snack of either fresh fruit/ salad, plain popcorn, plain breadsticks or plain rice cakes.

Please remember not to provide snacks that contain dairy or nuts due to the children with allergies being on the playground.  

 

Please make sure you have written your names on your jumpers, coats, water bottles, sandwich boxes and snack pots.
