Welcome to our Year 4 class



We will continue to use  â€˜Leaf' By Sandra Dieckmann as our vehicle text for writing. We will explore the tone of the text and use detailed descriptions for weather and settings. We will develop our use of apostropes, inverted commas for speech and appropriate verbs to match noun phrases.  We will continue to explore our reading text; Stig of the Dump and will carry on reading about Michael's adventures in Kensuke's Kingdom. 



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 fractions, decimals and word problems. We will also continue to work on times tables and arithmetic which will continue to be tested on Fridays. 


Our Science topic for this half term is Living Things and their Habitats. We will explore different ways of grouping living things and use different diagrams to show our findings.  We will also use classification keys to demonstrate our knowledge of plants and animals. We will investigate environmental change and positive and negative impact this is having on habitats. 



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

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