We hope that you and your children have had a very enjoyable Summer break, and we would like to welcome the children into year 4.
Autumn term is always a busy time for children in Year 4 with lots of new learning taking place.
In Science we will be studying “Sound”, our Geography learning will allow us to explore the continent of Asia and our DT planning will focus on “Healthy Eating”. Our History lessons will allow us to time travel back to the Anglo Saxons and learn about the daily lives of men, women and children.
English and Mathematics will continue to be taught daily and focus on key writing skills and mathematical calculations. Times tables are an area requiring continuing improvement, please encourage your child to learn and revisit tables they are struggling with as this knowledge aids so much of their learning in maths. There will be a strong emphasis on learning times tables this year up to 12 x 12 as well as a weekly times table test. Children in Year 4 receive regular homework and phonic spellings, as well as age related spellings.

This year, your child will have the opportunity to complete a Level 1 bikeability training course. In order to participate children will need to be confident riding a bike and will need to bring a bike and helmet into school. More details to follow later in the school year.
Year 4 PE sessions are:
Tuesday- Multi Skills
Please ensure that children have the correct PE kit in school at all times; PE kits can be purchased from the school office.
Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to get in touch. We anticipate a busy and exciting term ahead and we thank you in anticipation of your continued support.
Class 4 really enjoyed their Asia Day! We dressed up in traditional clothing, painted Chinese fans and made some delicious chapatis with the help of our parents!
Class 4 had a fantastic time joining in with Armistice Day activities. We created some super newspaper articles about the end of the war and made poppy sun-catchers.
In R.E. this week, Class 4 have been learning about the Torah. We made our own Torah scrolls and demonstrated the ways that it is shown respect.
This week, Class 4 have been text detectives! We have been spotting the features of newspaper articles and explaining their purpose.

Some members of Class 4 took part in a Bikeability workshop. They received their level 1 certificates, which meant they were able to do things like control a bike with one hand, start and stop with control and ride alongside other cyclists and pedestrians.
Year 4 had an exciting visit from Severn Trent to learn about water use and sewage treatment. We found out how water travels around the water cycle and, in groups, we measured out the water use of different families to identify water savers and water wasters.
