Brierley Forest

Primary and Nursery School

Y4

Welcome to Year 4!

There are 2 classes in Year 4. Astronomers are taught by Mrs Little and High Flyers are taught by Miss Bowers. We are lucky to have Miss Thompson and Mrs Wainwright working to support teaching and learning across both classes.

 

 

Welcome to Year 4's class page. Here you will find information about our classes including PE days, information on our curriculum and any useful links if learning from home. 

PE Days

 

 

Our PE day will be on a Thursday and children should come dressed appropriately for all occasions, including the cold and rain, as an indoor slot may not always be available and children are being encouraged to do PE outside as much as possible.

 

If children have their ears pierced, they will be expected to take out their earrings for PE lessons. It is our expectation that children will come dressed in the school PE uniform. This term we will be studying gymnastics and basketball.

Homework menus

 

Children will have a homework menu every half-term which is linked to the half-termly curriculum topics studied in class. There is no minimum expectation for children to complete these tasks on a daily or weekly basis, but children can choose which tasks they have an interest in to develop their love an enthusiasm for learning. Children will be rewarded will a Class Dojo for each piece of homework completed.

Reading

 

Please listen to your child read at least 3 times a week at home. They will change their books, if they wish, during our weekly visit to La Bibliotheque. Year 4 will visit La Bibliotheque on Mondays.

On Monday afternoons at 2:50-3:15pm, we will be holding our reading sessions, where parents and carers can come and share a book/story with the children in school. Each class will hold a reading session every two weeks.

High Flyers sessions will be on - 13.11.23, 27.11.23, 11.12.23 

                                   Spring     - 8.01.24, 22.01.24, 5.01.24

Astronomers sessions will be on - 20.11.23, 2.12.23, 18.12.23

We look forward to seeing you there.

 

It is important that children are reading daily and practising their spellings and  times tables  Weekly spellings will be practised in class and assigned on Spelling Frame. TimesTables Rockstars is an excellent online resource for the children to use to develop multiplication fluency. this is important as all year 4 children will take the Multiplication Check test in the summer term.

 

Many thanks for all your help and support.
