Year 4

 

We would like to welcome all parents, carers and children to terms 5 and 6 in Year 4. Our topics in the coming two terms are Playlist (Term 5) and Road Trip USA (Term 6). We will be forming our own pop bands and learning how to perform a song to an audience from the 60s,70s or 80s. This will culminate in a grand Year Group Final to find the winner of the Battle of the Bands! Alongside this, we will be learning about sound in our Science topic and we will learn about the Anglo-Saxons’ arrival in Britain.

In Term 6 we cross the Atlantic to the USA, where we will study key geographical features, population characteristics and even design our own apple pies! We will also learn about electricity in our Science lessons.

Learning the times tables continue to be a priority in terms 5 and 6, as our Year 4s will sit an online multiplication tables check in Term 6. The weekly times tables challenge and daily practise will therefore continue into Term 6. Please continue to support your child in practising the times tables – it really does make a difference! The Sound Check on Times Tables Rock Stars is the best way for the children to practise and prepare for their online check as it simulates the 6 second response time required. Thank you as well, to all those parents who continue to support reading at home and who add comments in reading records.

Swimming commences in Term 5 and will run until the end of Term 6. Children will go swimming on alternate weeks. On the weeks when they are not swimming, the children will receive a PE lesson from Mr Santos.

Any questions or queries, please do ask the class teacher – we are at the classroom door at the end of every day and are happy to talk to you.
