Welcome to the Year 4 class page!
Our topic this half term is still 'Danger.' However, we will be focusing on dangerous activities and life styles such as climbing Mount Everest! Get ready to learn lots of staggering facts about the journey to the highest peak on earth! We will then use this knowledge to learn a little more about volcanoes and mountains around the world.
Our class book this half term is 'The Firework maker's daughter' by Philip Pullman. Please don't be tempted to finish this at home, as we will be doing a lot of work on predictions!
Homework books are handed out on a Monday and returned to school on a Friday.
Please read for 25 minutes at home each day. Try to get 4 comments in your reading log each week, ready to show me on a Friday.
Spellings are set on a Monday and tested the following Friday.
Please try to practise your times tables at home as much as possible. The Times Table Rockstars website is a really fun way to do this, or you could dance along with Supermovers. By the end of Year 4, you are expected to know all of your tables up to 12 x 12!
PE is on a Friday afternoon. Please wear your PE kit to school on a Friday. If you wanted more PE activities to try out at home, you could have a look at the websites below:
