Welcome to 4M

4M is taught by Mrs Morgan and Mrs Bowmaker, our HLTA, on Wednesday mornings.

 

Please use our class page to find out about what we are learning and doing during the year.  More detailed information about the class theme can be found by opening the 'Curriculum Plan' which can be found in 'Files to download' lower down the class homepage. We hope you have as much fun reading about what we've been up to whilst learning!

Our theme for this Term...from Macclesfield to Europe!

In Year 4 this term, will be continuing our adventure in Geography from Macclesfield to Europe. We will be using maps and atlases to locate places near and far and researching physical features. In English and Maths we will be building on your previous learning and be exploring narratives and continuing to develop your maths knowledge and skills. Please look through the curriculum overview for Summer Term to find out what other exciting things we will be learning.

In science, children will be finding out about animals including humans. We will be looking at the digestive system, food chains teeth etc.

 

Homework

We encourage children to read as often as possible at home, or for you to read to them. Please let us know how they doing through making a note in their homework diary.

English homework is given out every Monday and is handed in on Wednesday. Maths homework is handed out on a Friday and collected the following Thursday. This will often be a mathletics homework. Please let us know if your child found anything particulary tricky. Homework should take about 20 minutes (unless they're so absorbed they want to keep working!). If, after this time, the homework is becoming a battle, please send it back into school where we will help your child with it.

As children are required to know their multiplication tables up to 12x12 by the end of Year 4, a key area of focus is to develop our multiplication tables knowledge and become times table superstars! Strong multiplication table knowledge is crucial in many areas of maths and children should be able to recall these quickly and confidently. On top of your child's weekly mathematics homework, children should spend some time each week practising their times tables. Please enjoy exploring the times table activities below:
