Welcome to 4U

Welcome to 4U. Please use our website to find out all about what we will be learning throughout this year, keep up-to-date with upcoming events, find useful documentation linked to our curriculum (see file downloads at the end of this page) and much more. You can also view our gallery and Facebook page, to see just how much fun we have been having whilst learning.

In Year 4, our theme for the Autumn Term is 'Wild Worlds’. Our lessons will be cross-curricular which means that units of English, geography, computing, DT and art will be linked together to create a broader experience. Planned activities include practical lessons where we will: be learning all about how rivers are formed – including a trip to the local stream – become boat builders, make our own ‘volcanoes’, learn all about Mount Vesuvius and much, much more. It would be fantastic if you could encourage your child to collect material from home - or from the library - to support this.

 

Useful Websites

It is expected that by the end of Year 4 children know by heart all times tables to 12x12 and corresponding division facts.  Please ensure that children practise these regularly (3/4 times a week).  The following online games and activities may be useful:

https://play.ttrockstars.com/auth - every child has an individual login for Times Tables Rock Stars.

https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/7-11-years/times-tables

https://www.mathplayground.com/index_multiplication_division.html

https://www.timestables.co.uk/

Here are some activities which you may find useful to reinforce spelling, grammar and punctuation taught in school:

Homework

It would be really beneficial for the children to read at least 5 times a week.  Even though most children are able to read independently in Year 4, we would very much like them to read with an adult a couple of times a week.  To develop their higher level comprehension skills, please use some of the questions suggested in the documents to download. The children still love being read to, so please continue to read to them too!  It's a great way of extending their vocabulary and providing them with their own ideas for story writing.

Along with regular reading and learning times tables, the children will have spellings to learn and homework will be set weekly to consolidate their understanding of key skills in English and Maths: this will be set through Mathletics and SPaG.com.

The children also have access to Times Table Rockstars which is a website that will help to develop their multiplication and division knowledge. Please check your child's Maths homework book for their individual login.

Thank you so much for your support in this area.
