Year 4 2018 - 2019

Mrs Meehan

Year Four Teacher

 Welcome to Year 4

with

Mrs Meehan, Mrs Henderson and Mr Jones.

 

Wecome back to the Spring Term.

Class Dojo is a great way for me to share with you what's been happening in class as well as our web page.

World Knowledge

Our World knowledge topic this term is "Anglo-Saxons and Vikings" This is a period of British history that has so many things to learn about! We will be looking at where the Anglo-Saxons came from and just how fierce the Vikings were! ILots of art and design will be included and we'll even try to make our own individual longships. 

English

This half term, we are focusing on non-fiction writing and linking it to our World Knowledge topic. We will also be continuing to develop our grammar, punctuation and spelling skills. To practise your spelling, punctuation and grammar have a look at some of the websites below:

Maths

Over the next few weeks in maths, we are focusing on measurements, statistics and area and perimeter. Please keep learning all your multiplication tables as this does help you in a lot of different areas in maths.

Mathletics is a great way for you practise key skills we have covered in class and you can also play against other children around the world.  It will also form part of your homework this term. Remember that if you go to homework club, you can use the i pads in school to complete your homework.

Science.

This term our science topic is "Sound". We will be looking at how sounds are made, how we can change the pitch and volume and planning an investigation into how far sound can travel. I like to make science as fun and as investigative as possible so we will be carrying out lots of practical investigations.

Please remember to do your 5 reads and homework. 

Homework is given out on a Friday and is due back in on the following Wednesday. If you need any help with your homework or just a quick reminder of what you need to do, then please tell me and we shall sit together and go over it. Mrs Henderson has a year 3 and 4 homework club which is a great way to do your homework with a little support in school.

PE with Mr Forbes is on Monday mornings and Wednesday afternoons and full PE kit needs to be in on that day.

After a democratic vote the following children will be working in these roles for the year.

School councillors - Phoebe and Max

Eco-warriors - Caitlyn and Anna

Sports crew - Charlie and Carsen

Book worms - Sammi and Terry 

Online owls - Samuel and Molly-May

Anti-bullying ambassadors - Josh and Kelsey.

I'm sure they are all going to be great in their roles. 

This is already a packed half term and I'm looking forward to it!

Mrs Meehan.
