Hello! Welcome to our Year 4 class page. Here you will find all of the information about what, where and how your child will be learning this year.
Please take a minute or two to visit our class website and check out how we spend our days at Caedmon Primary School. Here you will find information regarding homework, useful links for home learning and examples of our work across the entire curriculum. We can also be found on Twitter here.
Who We Are
My name is Mr. Wynn and I am the teacher in Year 4. I have been teaching for four years now and have enjoyed every minute of it. I am absolutely delighted to be working with this class again, having previously taught them in Year 1. Along with myself we have the familiar friendly faces of Miss Irving and, on Wednesday afternoons and Thursdays, Miss Collins.
We hope to create an exciting, reflective and stimulating learning environment, that provides opportunities for every child to learn. We hope to equip your child with the necessary skills to succeed inside and outside of school, through balancing the usage of new technology with older, more traditional methods.
If there is anything you would like to know about our class, the curriculum or your child's progress - please do not hesitate to get in touch.
Daily Reading and Accelerated Reader
We hope that every child in Year 4 reads for 15 minutes everyday. Research shows that if your child develops a love of reading, they are far more likely to go on to succeed in wider areas of the curriculum. We have recently started using Accelerated Reader. This is a fabulous online resource that not only encourages reading participation, but also helps each child develop their comprehension. Your child will be given the opportunity to change their book every single day, and during Reading Time, can complete quizzes to ensure their range is consistently being amended to suit their needs. I hope to strike up a good dialogue with every parent through our home reading journals this year.
You can access our Accelerated Reader page here.
Homework in Year 4 is sent home weekly. Each child will have between 5 and 10 spellings to learn, in line with our Spelling curriculum in school. Further to this, a Times Table will also be sent home that will benefit your child in the Times Table Championship the following week.
Finally, we have recently purchased IXL. This is a wonderful online learning platform that allows your child the opportunity to practice their Literacy and Numeracy skills at home.
You can access the Caedmon IXL login page here.
Please ensure that an appropriate PE kit is brought into school; plain white or red t shirt, black or navy shorts (tracksuit bottoms/leggings in cold weather) and trainers/plimsoles. If possible, please allow kit to be left in school over the course of a half-term. This will mean they are able to feel more comfortable during class PE sessions and not have to worry about forgetting/not having kit on a weekly basis.
We will be doing PE at the Leisure Centre on a Tuesday afternoon for our first half term. We will be learning how to play Rugby! Swimming will take place on a Wednesday with Miss Collins. Just like in Year 3, please collect your child from the Leisure Centre at this time.
ICT and Computing
