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. From week 4 Mathletics homework is set weekly – pupils need to log in to complete their homework before they can play any further Mathletics games. If your child cannot access the internet at home, they can use the computer room on Thursday lunchtimes to complete their Mathletics homework.
All Year 4 homework is set on a Monday, to be completed by the following Monday. In addition to this, pupils should read every day and practise their spellings for their weekly test.
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 Nicola Davies’ wonderful book ‘The Promise. Year 4 pupils have explored the book in imaginative ways.
We have planned many lovely learning opportunities in this first half term, starting with our exciting chemistry workshop on 18th September. Nick Baker from Warwick University will visit us for an afternoon of whizz-banging fun! Our first science topic is exploring states of matter, which links well with our geography on the water cycle. Please refer to our Knowledge Organiser, which came home in week one, to talk about this topic with your child at home. 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 GoPro team of sports coaches for their Outdoor PE lessons. Classes also have swimming lessons this term (see letters) instead of Indoor PE. Our Indoor PE lessons of gymnastics 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.
Please keep making regular visits to check out what Year 4 are up to!
