Welcome to Year 4
- Class Teacher: Mrs Milne
- Teaching Assistant: Mrs Sokell
Year 4 is an important year, giving children the opportunity to bring together all of their prior learning from Years 2 and 3, and use this to support their learning of new and exciting concepts. With this in mind, it is essential that children try their hardest both in school and with their homework. Please encourage your child to not only complete their homework, but do so to the highest standard possible.
Please ensure your child reads every night. It is your child’s responsibility to ensure they have their reading book in school each day as we begin every morning with reading and AR test time.
Homework logs will be given out once every half term. Please complete one piece at home each week and return the log the last week of the half term. Small homework activities will be given out each week focusing on science, maths, writing or spelling.
Children will be focusing on various spelling rules throughout the year. The children will have a spelling test each Monday on these rules and be sent out words to practise each Wednesday.
Music sessions will take place on a Monday afternoon. This year, we will be learning to play the ukulele with a highly experience and enthusiastic teacher from the Durham Music Service. Your child does not need to bring anything to these sessions.
PE lessons will take place on a Tuesday afternoon.
We will use Class Dojo to send out reminders and add anything we have been up to in class onto our story. Please check daily and feel free to message Mrs Milne with any queries and concerns! If you are not on Class Dojo please ask for a login code.
Long Term Plans
The long term plan provides an overview of each year group’s curriculum by subject. The long term plans may alter slightly as the year progresses as we evaluate and refine our curriculum to ensure it best meets the needs of our children.
