Let us each have the courage to try our best and be resilient during the best days of our lives. 

Let us all achieve together in God’s love.

Our Learning

November 2021- Year have had a very busy few weeks. We have been remembering those who had died in the war for Remembrance. We took part in The Country Trusts Farm in a Box Climate action. We looked at how we can all make little changes to help reduce climate change. We have started our work on the Maya. Year 4 just love to look at sources and find out about History. 

September 2021- Year 4 had a busy September. We went with the country trust to Gazegill Farm and Bolton Abbey. We learnt about where our food comes from and also of the history of Bolton Abbey. We also had a special treat of a climbing wall. We showed resilience, determination and bravery.

  Year 4 Autumn Newsletter 2021

 Termly Overview

A massive welcome you to Year 4. During this autumn term we are starting our new topic called Rainforest Adventure. We will be locating Rainforests around the world and looking into all aspects of them, including climate, plant life, animals and tribes that live there.

In English we will be looking at stories from other cultures which overlaps nicely with our rainforest topic. 

In Maths we will be revisiting place value, mental and written methods for addition and subtraction. We will also be learning our times tables. We need to learn and know all of them up to 12s. 

Our RE topic this term is The Bible. Here we will be looking closely at the bible and the many books that it contains. We will also be focusing on Old Testament stories.

During the term our Science topic is habitats and plants which also overlaps with our topic work. Here we will look at animal classification, also the parts of plants and what plants need to survive. We will also be looking into photosynthesis.

Things you could do at home

English

  • Please read with your child as regularly as possible. I ask for a minimum of three times a week. Daily if possible. Reading books are required to be brought in daily. If your child has read their book and it has been signed then it will be changed. Your child will receive two books. I ask that you read as much as you can. I know sometimes it can be tricky to fit it in but it is for your child's benefit.  
  • When reading, check for meaning and understanding.
  • New spellings will be given every Tuesday, for a test on Friday.

 

Maths

  • Practise times tables on a regular basis. Your child should know all of their times tables.  We will have to complete the statutory times tables test in June 2022. All pupils will be taking part in this. Please make the most of the Mathshed subscription we have. If you require your log child's log in, then please get in touch. 

 

Fabulous Facts

At the start of each half term, I will send out a sheet with key information regarding our topic work. Please use this as a talking point and look at the vocabulary together with your  child.  

PE

Our PE will be on a Tuesday and a Wednesday. Your child can come to school in their PE kit on those days. Plain black joggers only. This is so changing is not required. Pumps can be kept at school in a bag on your child's peg. Trainers will not be permitted.
