Year 4

Weekly Overview

Year 4 have worked hard this week and returned from the half term break with enthusiasm.

In English this week, Year 4 have completed our end of year assessments in both reading and SPaG.

In Maths this week, we have continued to complete daily arithmetic questions and multiplication challenge. We have also successfully completed a unit on fractions; finding equivalent fractions, simplifying fractions and adding and subtracting fractions with the same denominator.

We ended the week by completing the first of our maths assessment papers: arithmetic.

The class have enjoyed our PE lesson; an introduction to tennis skills.

It is recommended that children also read daily, this can be recorded in to your child’s reading record. Reading regularly can not only improve word recognition and fluency, but can also assist children in their writing during class. Therefore, children will be expected to read at least 2 stage books per week (1 if they are on the thicker books from later stages). Reading books (and reading records) should be the only things going home and returning to school along with water bottles.

P.E. will be on Friday, so please ensure children attend school wearing their full new P.E. kits.

Early morning work begins at 08:30 each day and will be spent on tasks that the children have needed further support with. Therefore, I would encourage the children getting in to school on time, to ensure they do not miss any learning.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me via telephone or an email to school.
