Welcome to Year 4 September 2020
Welcome to the Year 4 class page.
Literacy work this term will be based around the poetry text "The Tear Thief" by Carol Ann Duffy and we will be producing our own narrative, non- chronological reports and instructions for how to catch a tear thief.
In art we shall be developing our knowledge of artists and improving our mastery of art and design techniques, to our own pop art.
In Math's we will focus on time and money. Please remember to log on to Times Table Rock Stars at home and also complete the My Math's set homework each week. For this half term, homework will be set via Seesaw on Wednesday and will also include spellings and reading.
In Geography, the children will be completing a study on Liverpool and linking this to understand the importance of geographical features and locations, and will be reading and understanding maps and an atlas.
Science this half term is based around electricity. The children will be making electrical circuits and will investigate how to make a bulb brighter. They will look at conductors and insulators and make their own switches.
We shall continue to learn the clarinet on a Tuesday and we are looking forward to sharing our learning in a recorded performance. P.E sessions will also be on a Wednesday, please ensure that the children have their P.E. kits in school in a labelled carrier bag. Spanish lessons will also continue on a Wednesday this half term.
It is really important that you read with your child as often as possible. Reading books will be sent home and must be returned to school each day in the plastic wallet provided. Please complete the reading record diary to show your child has read their book and is ready for a new one. Please ensure your child brings their reading book and water bottle to school every day and that clarinets are in school for the Music lesson on Tuesday.
Children should remember to bring a healthy snack, a refillable water bottle and their reading folders every day.
If you have any concerns or information you want to share with us, please send a message on Seesaw or Dojo and we will reply as soon as possible.
Thank you for your continued support.
Mrs Gorton (Class Teacher), Mrs Flint (Class Teacher), Mr Shove (Teaching Assistant) and Mrs Dote (Teaching Assistant)
