Dear Year 4 Parents and Carers

This is your child’s new homework book!

On a weekly basis, we expect children to complete the following tasks:

  1. Reading 3 – 5 times a week with an adult – This can be reading of their given colour banded book, a library book or a book from home. Anything that is read to/with an adult should be dated and recorded in their Home Reading Diary and placed into a book bag for daily checking.
  2. Practicing times tables 3-5 times a week. The 99 Club aims to raise standards in maths through encouraging pupils to improve their mental calculations when attempting quick-fire multiplication and division problems. Practice sheets for the 99 club can be found on our Year 4 blog by following the link: http://www.flpa-tkat.org/maths-9/

 

  1. Spelling practice – There will be weekly spelling tests in class. The list of 10 words will be given out every Monday. The spelling test will take place on a Monday morning. Spellings should be practiced and recorded in the homework book – whether it be written practice or verbal practice with an adult.

Kensuke's Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo

 

We will be continuing to learn about journeys of discovery.  Our focus text in literacy this term will be the amazing Kensuke's Kingdom - a gripping tale of discovery from the perspective of Michael, a young boy lost on a Pacific Island after being washed overboard from his family's boat - The Peggy Sue.    Michael soon discovers that he is not the only human living  on his deserted island...…….

Science in Year 4 - Autumn Term

 

Our focus in science this term is to explore and learn about electricity.  We have been busy constructing simple circuits to light a bulb and have learned how to draw circuits using the correct symbols used by  scientists.  We have designed the circuits for a special torch to be used by an explorer, which has a special feature of a buzzer that works separately to the light circuit.

Year 4 Go Native - week commencing 5th September 2018

 

To celebrate the start of our amazing topic, learning all about the life and culture of Native American Indians, children from year 4 welcomed Chief Alex who led our day  with lots of fantastic activities, dances, songs, arts, crafts and stories.  The children had a fully immersive day and loved every second of it.

Congratulations to Jaydon Preston who wrote this fabulous newspaper article introduction about  the day:

 

Cultural Native Learning

 

On the 10th of September 2018 pupils of Year 4, Front Lawn Primary Academy, had a shocking surprise!  When they arrived at school, they discovered that a tremendous tepee had been set up on the gigantic field.  They were having a Native American Indian day, to introduce the topic to the children.

Our Essential Question this term is

"How does discovery affect human life?"

 

Children will be looking at the culture of native Americans and will be learning to answer this question in the context of how their lives were affected by the discovery of the New Word by Christopher Columbus.

Welcome to Beech and Pine Class!

Year 4 have had a brilliant start to their school life this year.

Over the past three weeks the children have been busy learning about the discovery of the New World by Christopher Columbus, the famous explorer who sailed West to travel East in 1492.

 

 They have been studying the fantastic story of “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s stone” and have been learning  all about how to defeat an evil villain.
