St. Margaret’s C of E Junior School
Welcome to Year 4!
Welcome to Year 4’s website pages. Here you can find photographs of the Year 4 classes in action; copies of letters we send home; useful websites and examples of our wonderful work. Don’t forget that every week Mathletics homework is set – pupils need to log in to complete their homework before they can play any further Mathletics games.
All Year 4 homework is set on a Monday, to be completed by the following Monday.
The children have made a splendid start to Year 4. They have settled well into their new classes, embraced their learning and thrown themselves into their first topic. The whole school started the term by looking at Coralie Bickford-Smith’s beautiful book ‘The Fox and the Star’. Year 4 pupils have used art, ICT, English and maths skills to explore the book in imaginative ways.
We have planned many lovely learning opportunities in this first half term, starting with our exciting trip to Mary Arden’s farm in week two of term. Watch this space for photos of the day. Our first Year 4 topic is entitled "Much Ado About The Tudors" – which links beautifully with our first history and English topic on Tudor England and William Shakespeare. Our first science topic exploring is exploring living things and food chains. Our first maths unit of work looks at Roman Numerals, rounding and place value, followed by addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
In PE, pupils will be taught by our new GoPro team of sports coaches for their Outdoor PE lessons. Classes also have swimming lesson this term (see letters) instead of Indoor PE. Our Indoor PE lessons of Tudor dance will take place when classes are not swimming.
See the Powerpoint on this page entitled ‘Acquaintance Evening’ with more details about the start of Year 4.
