Year 4 is taught by Mrs Walters Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday mornings. Thursdays afternoons are taught by Mrs Staples and Mrs Dinham teaches the class on Fridays. Mrs Staples is the teaching assistant for the class.
This half term, we are reading ‘Wolf Brother’ and travelling back in time to the Stone age…..
Our class text, on which our daily reading sessions are based, is ‘Wolf Brother’ by Michelle Paver. If your child enjoys this book, there is a series of ‘Chronicles of Ancient Darkness’ by the same author. We will be writing a narrative set in Neolithic Times, a guide to surviving the Stone Age and looking at poetry from other cultures during Black History Month.
We will be learning key facts about the Stone Age and the beginning of the Iron Age and what it was like to live in those times.
We will be learning about internet safety and developing our own software.
We will be learning about sculpture and studying the work of artist Emma Walker, before making our own willow sculptures.
We’ll be learning about the digestive system and teeth.
Each week, we will be enjoying 2 PE sessions: Nimble Nets on a Monday and 'Cool Core' Pilates on a Thursday. Your child may come to school in their PE kit on these days.
We will be asking What is the ‘Trinity’ and why is it important to Christians?
We will learn french using the Rigolo scheme.
It is our aim that every child in Year 4 has a great year. Please come and see us if you have any questions or concerns.
How you can help
Read at home daily with your child and ensure they bring in their book and reading diary every day.
Spellings are set on Spelling Shed each Friday and assessed the following Friday. If you cannot access this online programme, please contact us for a paper copy of weekly spellings.
All children should be practising their times table skills regularly on TTRockstars please. This is particularly important this year as, in Year 4, the children undertake an assessment of all tables up to 12X12.
Thank you for your support- it really makes a difference!
We love reading at Lanner! Reading to, and with, your child is one of the greatest gifts you can give as this early acquisition of a love for reading will ensure your children becomes a reader for life. Research shows that reading and talking to your child about stories, information books and poems from an early age benefits them for life.
