Welcome to Year 4 Otters!
The class teacher is Miss Ashraf and we are very lucky to be supported everyday by Miss Fenwick!
We are expected to read, at home, three times a week and books will be changed on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. Children are expected to bring their reading packs in to school every day.
Homework will be sent through our Google classroom, every Friday and will be expected to be returned by the following Wednesday.
In Year 4, we will be carrying out the Multiplication Check. This is a test, towards the end of the year, that challenges children by setting them numerous times tables questions. In Otters class, we are practising hard for this by learning a new set of tables each week and practising on Times Tables Rockstars. We would love it if this part of our learning journey could be continued at home! The login page can be found using the link below and all children’s login details can be found in the back of their home reading journal.
In the morning we have:
Spelling, Guided Reading, Maths and Literacy
In the afternoon we have:
Worship and Wider Curriculum (Science, Art, DT, French, History, Geography, PSHE and RE)
On Thursday mornings, we have Junior Jam to help us with our learning. In Junior Jam we do Computing, PE and Music.
We love to see what you have been up to outside of school. If you have received any achievements in your out of school activities, please feel free to bring them in for our celebration assembly on a Friday!
Our Learning Journey:
So far this Autumn term has been a very busy one!
We have started our new Literacy topic based around the legend of the Loch Ness Monster. We are currently in the stages of gathering and reading lots of different types of texts to collect lots of information about Nessie to support our writing.
In Maths, we are continuing to develop our skills and this term we will be covering; place value, perimeter, statistics and addition and subtraction!
For our Wider Curriculum afternoons, we have been looking at Living things and their Habitats in Science, we went on an investigative hunt to look for invertebrates in our outdoor resource area and they have been really inquisitive! We will also be learning about Mountains in our Geography lessons this term, where we will be learning about what a mountain is, the features of a mountain and how they are formed. We will also be looking at the highest mountains in the UK and the world, and the why the Himalayan Mountains are so important!
We will also be carrying on with French as our Modern Foreign Languages learning! In which we will be learning how to describe our school environment, and all the things in it in French!
