Welcome to Year 4
Welcome to Year 4
The term will begin, with the children continuing to read, ‘How to Train Your Dragon.’ The children will then use the story as a stimulus to plan and write their very own dragon story. Towards the end of this term we will be exploring a story written by Michael Morpurgo called, ‘Coming Home.’ The children will be taught skills of expanding sentences, using adverbial openers and subordinate clauses. We will also work on skills of editing and re-drafting in order to continually improve the quality of or written work.
SPAG lessons will focus on adding prefixes to root words. Children will explore spelling the words as well as developing an understanding of what the words mean. A list of weekly spellings has been stuck into reading logs. Please remember to practise these with your child, ready for a weekly spelling test or dictation.
Week 1- Equivalent fractions
Week 2- Comparing fractions
Week 3- Introduction to decimals
Week 5- Time
Week 6- Negative numbers
Week 8 – Multiplication
We are really pleased with the work the children have been producing as part of their learning logs. The children and staff have really enjoyed sharing all the creative ways the children have completed their homework, thank you for your continued support.

Thank You Specsavers!
Year 4 were visited by Junaid and Erin from Specsavers today to promote Road Safety Week. Each child was gifted with a high visibility jacket for the dark evenings ahead. Please encourage your children to wear these over their coats so that drivers can spot them easily.
Thank you Specsavers!
