4M

Welcome to 4M.

We are enjoying many fascinating topics and exciting experiences this year in Year 4.

In 4M, the teacher is Mrs Marshall and is supported by our fantastic teaching assistants Mr Still, Miss Wynne and Mrs Thomas. We also have Spanish with our specialist teacher Senora Creese and Music with Miss Woolley so our Christmas Carol Concert was of course fabulous!

 

 Intervention groups are led by our teaching assistant, Miss Wynne.

 

PE

 

For the spring term, PE will be on a Monday and Tuesday. Please come to school in PE kit on those days.

 P.E kit is:

 

  • Plain Black/navy bottoms (joggers or shorts in warmer weather)
  • Plain black/navy jacket
  • White top
  • trainers

 

Spellings

 

We need to know as many of the 100 spellings as possible by the end of the year as there are new 100 words in Year 5 and 6. The 100 word spellings help decide if children meet the end of Year 6 writing standards so they are really important.

We also look at spelling patterns as well as the Mrs Wordsmith words that we learn in English. Phonics sessions take place for those children who need this support.

 

Every week we will send home a list of spellings to learn for the following Friday when we will have a spelling test. Children who have phonics sessions, please practice your 100 words.

 

Maths Times Table screening June 2024

There will be a times table test in June 2024. Children need to learn the times tables and this will be a focus in school. Times Table Rockstars is practiced most mornings and can also be accessed from home. There is a Times Table Rockstars Champion each week.

 

Reading

Reading anything and everything is valuable. Starbooks rewards those children on a Friday with a treat (Hot Chocolate in the winter and ice cream in the summer with a variety of toppings that builds up each week) if they have read to a parent three times in a week and had it signed off in the Partnership book. Please can children read to an adult at home before asking to change their book. 

 

Each half term, there is a class read, which will link to the topic being studied. The aim is to give the children an opportunity of having a book being read to them and building on the knowledge they are learning in humanities (topic- history and geography) lessons. Parts of the book will be studied more in depth in reading sessions.

We aim to have as much fun as possible in 4M within the class in lessons or through different experiences in and out of school.
