Welcome to all of our parents, carers and pupils of Year 4.
Teaching 4 David Hockney is Miss. Haughin and teaching 4 Barbara Hepworth is Mrs. Mir. Our teaching support staff are: Mrs. Briggs and Mrs. Malek.
In English we are looking at poetry and focussing on 'The Sound Collector' by Roger McGough. We will have the opportunity to perform a range of poems and use our acting skills. We will look at the features of poems and will be given the opportunity to write our own poem.
In Maths we are looking at multiplication and division, we will be focussing on multiplying and dividing 6, 7 and 9. We will then look at multiplying numbers by 0. We will move onto fractions in which we will identify and shade fractions of shapes, add and subtract fractions with the same denominator and find a fraction of a quantity.
In Science we are learning about sound, we will be looking at how far sound travels and pitch. We will be taking part in experiments that will allow us to see the vibrations from sound.
In Geography, we will be learning about the Water cycle and the different stages of this. We will draw and label the stages of the water cycle.
We have a weekly spelling test on a Thursday and we give the new spellings out every Friday.
Both classes have P.E on Wednesday and Thursday. On these days children are allowed to wear their P.E. kit for the whole day instead of their uniform.
At home it would be really beneficial if you can practise your times tables, there is the expectation that all pupils in year 4 can recall their times tables up to 12X12 and there is a test at the end of the year. You could use the PIXL app, Sumdog and Maths Shed to help you with this.
