Hello Eager Elephants! My name is Miss Mead and I am the class teacher in Year 4. I am really looking forward to teaching in Class E with the support of our teaching assistant Mrs Campbell.
Learning in Year 4
This is a very important year during which we have lots to look forward to. I’m confident you are all ready for the challenge.
In Literacy we will improve our writing skills by exploring a range of exciting texts, some from different cultures, beginning with a focus linked to our Topic On Safari.. We will focus on using a variety of sentence structures, accurate and appropriate punctuation and we will also develop our spelling, reading and comprehension skills through our daily grammar, spelling and guided reading lessons.
In Numeracy we will develop our understanding of place value in numbers and will calculate with numbers up to 4 digits. We will learn to apply our knowledge to a range of problems.
In Science we will learn about Living things and their habitats, Animals including humans, Electricity, Sound and States of matter.
All other subjects will be taught through our exciting topics: On Safari, The Romans and The Greeks.
P.E. lessons will take place every Monday and Friday. Please make sure you have your full P.E. kit (navy/black shorts, white t-shirt and pumps) and any other clothing suitable for the sport you are doing (e.g. outdoor trainers, shin pads) in school. All items should be clearly labelled with your name.
Spellings and timetables homework will be sent home every Friday. Times tables are to be learnt by the following Thursday and the homework sheet returned to school on the following Friday. Please spend a few minutes each night learning and practising these.
We will continue to celebrate Mass every Thursday morning.
Achievement Assemblies take place on Friday morning. Keep working hard in class for your chance to win Star Learner, Star Person, a Friendship or Presentation award or even a golden raffle prize!
Learning at home
It's really important that you keep reading your book at home every night. Those who read every night will be rewarded for their hard work!
