Welcome to Year Four!
Welcome to Year Four’s Web Page.
We are a class of 28 children aged 8 - 9. Our teacher is called Mr Prior and he is the Curriculum Lead, NQT Mentor and Senior Student Mentor at our school.
This year, the whole school is focussing on learning how to learn. To be a good learner, you need to be on fire:
F – Focussed: If we are being focussed, we will stay on task when we are doing work, not being distracted by anything. It also means that we are single minded and passionate to learn new things.
I – Independent: We can work on our own, using our initiative to decide what to do and when. Also, we will aim to extend our learning at home, by reading and consolidating our in-school learning by finding out new things on our own.
R – Resilient: What we do when we make mistakes is the key to our learning. Resilience means that we see an error as a chance to grow and to learn. It means that we keep going, even when work is challenging or takes us outside of our comfort zone.
E – Enthusiastic: Passion is important in learning. It helps to drive you on and to make sure that learning is embedded into whole lives.
In Maths, we will be moving on to look at measurement and conversion. We will also be looking back at Area and Perimeter. These subjects will give us chance to practise some of the skills that we have learned so far. We will also be taking our Term Four NFER tests to see how we have been doing this year so far...
Please continue to practise your tables facts, there are now only a few months before our Year Four Times Tables Check - You can practise at www.sumdog.com or https://www.timestables.co.uk/multiplication-tables-check/
In Literacy, we will be focussing on Greek myths and legends. This will mean exploring a variety or heroes and gruesome villains and getting chance to write some of our own stories. If you want to look at some at home, then why not log on to this site: https://www.natgeokids.com/uk/discover/history/greece/greek-myths/
On an afternoon, we will be answering the enquiry question: How did the Ancient Greek Civilisation affect modern life? to support this learning, you could complete our weekly homework challenges, which you can find below
