Welcome to our Year 4 class



We will read a new text called ‘Leaf' By Sandra Dieckmann and use this to support our writing of narractives and non-chronological reports. We will develop our use of apostropes, inverted commas for speech and appropriate pronouns and nouns. We will continue to read a range of texts within guided reading and have already begun to enjoy sharing our class book - Kensuke's Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo. 



In Year 4 the children need to learn all their times tables - both multiplication and division facts up to 12X12. We are using times table rockstars and hit the button to help us. 

Have you improved your speed and accuracy? 


This half term PE will consist of swimming on Friday mornings. Children will need to bring swimming kits to school every Friday and ensure they have warm coats etc for the walk to and from Penketh pool. Please ensure all belongings are named. Children should also have their regular PE kit in school at all times. 


In Maths, we will be focussing on mutiplicatiom, division, word problems and Fractions. We will also continue to work on x tables and arithmatic which will continue to be tested on Fridays. 


Our Science topic for this half term is Electricity. We will explore circuits using equipment such as bulbs, buzzers and switches. We will also investigate conductors and insulators using a range of materials. As part of this topic, we hope to interview a real life electrician. 



The children will have home reading books, times tables practise, English and My Maths homework on a weekly basis. Homework will be given on a Monday and must be handed in on a Friday.

Spellings will be given out on Mondays and tested on alternate Fridays.

This half term we are going to learn about earthquakes. We are very excited about this topic and are looking forward to modelling the layers of the earth. We will also investigate  what an earthquake is and why they occur.
