Year 4

Summer term in Class 4

 

Curriculum

In the Summer term children will be learning about the UK as their main topic. 

 

Family Week

7 June – 10 June 2022

As part of our People Skills curriculum, we teach children in each year group a comprehensive and inclusive Relationship and Sex Education Programme, which complements our Christian values. The focus of this learning will take place during our family week, where children in Year 4 will be taught the following, in line with the statutory guidance released from the department of education, 2019:

 

PE

PE this term will be on Wednesday and Friday afternoons so we ask that children come to school already dressed in their PE kit. they can wear tracksuit bottoms and top/ hoody in accordance with out PE kit policy and remove these layers as appropriate. 

 

Homework

Spellings  - Weekly spellings will be introduced on Mondays and will be tested on the Friday. Throughout the week children will have multiple opportunities to practice these in school using the Sounds and Syllables approach. 

 

Times tables  - Children are asked to practise their times tables throughout the week for a test on Wednesdays. The children are given 5 minutes to complete as many questions as they can on times tables ranging from the 2's - 12's. Each week the children try to improve on their highest score.

 

Reading - There is an expectation that children read four times a week in order to make good reading progress. 

 

Optional Homework menu

The optional homework this term is linked as closely as possible to our topic of the UK. This menu will continue up until  half term. We will set aside a block of time each Thursday for children to share their homework and for us to celebrate the excellent work that is going on. Try and save your homework for these days as we don't always have time for show and tell on the other week days. 

 

Behaviour

The good to be green system will continue to be used across the school. Children start the day on green, and will have multiple opportunities throughout the day to earn a gold card for effort, attitude, kindness, helpfulness etc. Platinum cards will be awarded for instances of children going truly above and beyond in a certain area. Yellow cards serve as a warning and red cards will be given if children continue to not adhere to some area of the expected behaviour around school. In class 4, when children receive a gold card their name is written on a raffle ticket giving them the chance to be draw as the prize box winner for the week. The draw takes place last thing on a Friday. 

 

If you have any queries or questions I am always here to help. Please feel free to catch me on the playground before or after school. 

 

Yours sincerely

Mrs Doel
