YEAR 4 

Hello Year 4,

I hope that you are all well and staying safe. I just wanted to say that I really miss teaching you all and that I hope you are being nice to your parents!

After Easter, I will be updating the website every week with  different tasks for you to complete. Your parents can send me your work through email or on the Class Dojo.

Make sure you have a good go at the task set and keep all the work you have completed in a safe place as we will be sticking it into your books when you are back at school.

In the meantime, I have added some activities below which you can try. Can you make sure that you are continuing to practise your times tables for 5 minutes each day? It is essential learning. I will be holding a Year 4/5 times tables competition when we return and there will be prizes!  You can practise using the times tables APP on Purple Mash

Most importantly, make sure you are keeping yourselves safe and well and remember you are the best Year 4 class in the UK!

Hello and welcome!

 

My name is Mr Kenny and I am the Year 4 teacher. I will be working with Mrs Maddison this year to ensure that your children reach their full potential. We are very excited for Spring term and hope that the children in our classroom continue to grow in confidence and that they develop into well-rounded happy individuals.

Over spring term we will continue focusing on helping the children become independent learners with the confidence to speak out in class and take risks in their learning. This will be coupled with an environment built on Mutual Respect (one of our British Values) and enjoyment. We will also display the children’s work on our walls to give them an opportunity to have ownership over the classroom. The children will continue to have a lot of experimental learning opportunities – whether this is by visiting exciting places like Celtic Harmony, guest speakers, dancers or theatre groups to help bring the children’s learning to life.

This term we shall be learning about:

Literacy

The children will learn how to read, write and perform narrative poems. They will be writing persuasive arguments and they will be writing a non-chronological report based on a European country of their choosing.

Europe

In Topic the children will be learning all about Europe. They will be looking at political maps including capital cities of Europe, maps showing the terrain of Europe and physical maps of European countries. The children will also learn key facts about hills and mountains and finding out the key differences between the two.

 

RE & PHSCE

· Christianity and Sikhism

· Emotional Health and Well-being linked to our school values.

French

· Les Animaux

Children are always expected to act in accordance to 'Mr Kenny's Three R's' in order for each child to feel valued, proud and happy within not only the classroom, but the school as a whole.

 

 

The ethos of our class is to 'do what you can't'. The children are encouraged to complete work to their highest standard and to always look for opportunities to improve upon what they have produced. The children are set targets to help them focus upon the next steps in their learning journey. Having clear expectations means that the pupils know what areas they need to focus upon. We use a variety of reward systems to encourage the children - our ' Spelling Chain' being one which particularly inspires the children to put maximum effort into learning to spell. Furthermore, the children are encouraged to participate in a wide range of activities. All pupils take part in sports twice a week. This term our focus will be on Swimming and tag rugby. Throughout the rest of the year, all of the children will get the opportunity to take part in extra curricular events such as speed stacking, indoor athletics and science events; where they meet with, and compete against, other schools from the local area on a friendly basis. These events really help to build self-confidence within the children. Hopefully they will leave Year 4 with many happy memories to take with them into their adult life.
