Year 4 2023 - 2024
Welcome to Year 4
Class Teachers: Mrs Bloomberg, Lower Key Stage 2 Lead & Miss Hegerty
Welcome to Y4’s class page. We have loved teaching the children so far and all have settled in so well this year. We have been having lots of fun learning about the water cycle and about rivers so far and we can’t wait to have even more fun as the year goes on. We will be learning fun and exciting things about the Egyptians, the Anglo –Saxons, solids & liquids, food and nutrition and much more!
Reading is a really important part of your child’s life in school. We ask you to hear your child reading every night and to sign their reading journal. This will be checked every morning by class teachers. Remember to discuss the story and ask questions to further understanding.
This year, the children in Y4 will be part of national testing for times tables. Therefore, in our Maths lessons, there is a real focus on knowing our times tables off by heart. By the end of the year we will need instant recall of all tables upto 12 x 12. Parents and guardians, you could even test your children to help them become an even more marvellous mathematician. Why not say your multiplication tables together while walking to school? The children are also expected to access Times Tables Rockstars 10 minutes each evening which is a really fun way to practise.
Being healthy is important to us all. We drink plenty of water during the day and have a healthy playtime snack is offered for £1 per week. For example; oranges, apples, pears, bananas. Running a mile a day (weather permitting) is an important part of our school day.
If any parents or carers would like any help to support their child outside of school, especially through reading or maths, please feel free to ask questions or run past some new ideas you may have. You are always welcome.
We hope that you enjoyed reading about our class and there will be opportunities for you to come and see us working in class soon!
