Year Four

Miss Colligan
YEAR 4

Welcome to Year Four

 

We are really excited to be in Year 4! This term we will be leaning all about the Victorians. We will be focusing on how Queen Victoria changed Britain during her reign and the influence on life today.  We will be completing our own research to develop our understanding of the Victorians.

 

In English we will be reading the book Street Child. We will be using the book to complete diary entries and letters taking the role of different characters within the story. We will be working hard to continue developing our handwriting and working towards achieving a pen licence.

 

We will be reading a lot in Year 4 as a class and on our own. Reading is a very important skill and we ask that you continue to read with your child every day. Reading books should be in school every day. We all have access to Reading Plus and should be using this at home at least twice every week.

 

In maths we will be developing our understanding of the four operations and work to become more confident to answer word problems and challenges. We will be focusing on mental maths this year and will be aiming to know all our times tables up to 12x12. Please keep working on these at home.

 

We will be having PE on a Tuesday so please have your PE kit in school every week. We will be going swimming every Monday.

 

Keep checking this page for updates on the fantastic things we will do this year!
