Hello and welcome to the Year 4 class page! The Year 4 teaching team is Miss Tweddell, Mr Norton and Mrs Clennell. Miss Glen teaches the class on a Monday when Miss Tweddell is out of class.
In Year 4, we aim to create exciting and challenging learning opportunities that enable every child to flourish academically, socially and emotionally. Providing children with the skills they need to learn, develop and have fun, both inside and outside of school, is extremely important to us.
Our set PE days are Wednesdays and Fridays. On these days, children are required to come to school wearing their PE kit. Children will be provided with a red, school PE top to wear with tracksuit bottoms/leggings and footwear (trainers/sandshoes).
Reading is an extremely important part of your child's learning. To support this, children are expected to read for around 15 minutes per day during the week and will always have a school reading book, which is linked to their Accelerated Reader ZPD. A reading diary will be supplied to share information about progress between school and home. Please check, sign and comment frequently.
At the end of the year, there is a statutory Multiplication Tables Check (MTC). Learning our times tables, both in school and at home, will be a priority for us in Year 4.
If there is anything you wish to talk about, please do not hesitate to get in touch. We do ask that you continue to follow the school's latest policies on social distancing, but Miss Tweddell will always be available at the gate or by telephone.
Welcome to Home Learning
Hi Year 4.
You've had your home learning packs and hopefully you're ready for going to school, at home!
It's going to feel very weird to begin with - as it has been for me, recording lessons without you in the class. Although it has been a lot quieter...
Seriously though, you will get used to this way of working, and the recorded lessons should help you in Maths and English - and you should all have log-ins for Spelling Frame, MyMaths and TT Rockstars.
If you have any problems, or are unsure about anything, please get in touch on the email below and I'll do my very best to help.
Please also email me your work - Maths, English, Science, Geography, Art... it doesn't matter - it may make it's way onto the website. We can still be awesome!
Work hard and stay safe - and hopefully I'll see you all soon
Home Learning Raffle
Don't forget - for every piece of work you send in, you'll get a special raffle ticket. You could have the chance of having 20 tickets in the draw. Each Friday, a draw will be made for the week before - so tomorrow it will be for last week (Week 3). The class winner will receive a giant chocolate bar, and an overall winner will be drawn - this person will win an awesome prize from Mr Wisby's treasure chest.
Today's handwriting lesson hasn't been recorded, but you can still practise the letter 'd' using the image below.
Good morning Year 4, I hope all is well with you all. I just want to say thank you to those of you who are sending in work - it's great to see that you are engaging with the work.
I have re-recorded the clips of Arthur and the Golden Rope, so it would be good to watch them before today's English lesson. Alternatively, you can watch the whole thing on YouTube: just type in Arthur and the Golden Rope - Animated Story Sound Effects
Have a great day
Before your main maths lesson, practise saying your times tables - like we do in class. Practise two or three every day by chanting them. I have included these videos to help you. Remember: practice makes perfect!
English Lesson 11.1.21 - Arthur and the golden Rope
Before you start the lesson, make sure you watch the videos, to recap the story. Also, don't forget to pause the lesson if you need to, and answer each section as the lesson progresses.
English Lesson (8.1.21)
Hi Year 4 - just realised I have made a bit of a mistake in my last slide - I coloured the expanded noun phrases in purple instead of red. Here is the slide with my corrected mistake. Don't forget, you can magpie my paragraph - just change some of the words.
