Year 4 A - Miss Latta 2021 - 2022
Welcome to Year 4
Our names are Miss Williams and Miss Latta. Learning in Year 4 is supported by Mrs Carswell.
During the Autumn term, we will be looking at a range of topics in our class.
In Maths, we are looking at place value and the four operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division).
During Literacy, we are basing our writing on our class book ‘Escape from Pompeii’. We are reading this book in our guided reading lessons and hope to spark our imagination to write a setting description.
In the afternoons, we will look at a wide variety of topics, such as Sound in Science, Earthquakes and Volcanoes in Geography and the Romans in History.
Children receive weekly Art sessions led by Mrs Walsh.
Our PE days are Wednesdays and Thursdays. Please make sure that your child has a named kit, which includes black pumps or trainers, black shorts and either a green or white t-shirt. Long hair needs to be tied back.
All earrings need to be removed before school or the lesson for PE sessions. Where ears have recently been pierced, it is essential that children have their own plasters from home to cover their earrings. This needs to be done either at home or by the child themselves. This is in line with the school policy.
Excellent attendance is vital for helping your child to achieve their full potential. Please ensure your child is in school promptly at 8.40.
School finishes at 3.15 and children continue to be collected from classrooms at this time.
Spellings will be given out every Thursday to be practiced at home for a spelling test the following Thursday. Parents are encouraged to read with their children every day to support progress in reading and to help nurture a love for reading.
There will be weekly TT Rockstar battles against the other year 4 class, please ensure your child takes part as there now is a national year 4 times table assessment online.
