Term 1 -The Romans
Year 4's first topic is the Romans. Throughout this term we will be looking at who the Romans are, the Roman army, what the Romans built and the impact they had on Britain.
In Science, Year 4 will be focusing on teeth and the digestive system. Children will be identifying the different types of teeth and investigating the effect different liquids have on our teeth. Year 4 will also be learning about the digestive system and food chains.
In DT, we will be planning and creating our own bread thinking about the appearance, shape, ingredients and the method required to bake it.
Every Tuesday in the first term and every other Tuesday from Term 2-6, Year 4 will be lucky enough to take part in ukulele lessons. We are fortunate to have a brilliant ukulele teacher come to the school and teach the children.
Library will take place on a Friday for Pine Class and Thursday for Spruce and Fir Class.
Swimming will take place in Term 1, 3 and 5.
Pine Class will swim on a Tuesday afternoon, Fir Class will swim on a Wednesday and Spruce class will swim on a Friday.
On our swimming day please ensure your child has a full swimming kit with a swimming hat.
Games will take place on a Monday for Pine Class, Spruce Class and Fir Class.
Please make sure your child has a full PE kit in school at all times, including suitable footwear. For both PE and swimming please make sure that earrings are taken out.
All personal belongings and clothing should be clearly labelled with your child's name.
In Year Four, we encourage children to read every day or at least three times a week. Home school reading records are expected to come into school every day. The children will be able to change their reading book every day and will be sent home again. They will also be stamped if your child has read with an adult that day. Please sign and comment their home school reading records whenever your child has read as they can then move up a place on our new Race to Read challenge chart. This is an opportunity for the children to receive certificates and other rewards for the amount of times they have read at home.
Every Friday afternoon the whole school will be participating in ERIC (Everyone Reads In Class) time for ten minutes. All adults and children will be reading at this time to encourage and inspire to enjoy reading.
Children will be sent home with Reading Comprehension and Spelling Detective Home Learning every Friday to be returned on the following Wednesday. They will also bring home times tables on a Monday to practise and learn ready for the times table test on a Friday. Don't forget the children can practise their times tables online using Times Table Rockstars using the link below. Children can ask their teacher for their login if they need it.
