'Opportunity For All To Succeed'

Welcome to Year 4 Owls Class 2021

Wishing you all a Happy New Year

Spring 1

Mrs Barker, Mrs Luttrell - Marler and Mrs Salako would like to wish Mr Jackson a warm welcome to Owls Class.    

Due to the schools temporary closure we shall encourage all children to read at home using Myon, please encourage your child to learn their weekly spellings as normal and weekly tasks will be set on Purple Mash, Seesaw and MyMaths.  Please look out for the links to be sent via text, this will give you access to 2 daily zoom lessons from Year 4 teachers.

It is important for each child in year four to be fluent with all their times tables, please support your child with this in song, repetition or games. 

As of now we will be setting homework, please support your child to complete the weekly activities as follows:

Maths Homework - MyMaths will be set weekly.

English Homework - Purple Mash weekly activity.

Spelling Homework - Spellings to be learnt weekly (Friday test)

Check Seesaw for extra tasks during school closures.

Year 4 children have their passwords for TT Rocks, MyMaths and Purple Mash.

Year 4 children have their log on for Myon (an online reading package).

This term in maths we will be learning to multiply and divide. Via zoom

In English we will be learning about different types of poetry.

In PE we will be learning ball skills, through netball.

In topic we will be learning about volcanoes. Lesson link below

In year 4 we spend lots of time learning all our times table in preparation for the National test all our children will take in the summer.   TT Rocks is a great way to  challenge yourself and compete against each other.  Remember you can access this from home too!

  By the end of Year 4 we want everyone to be a times table expert.  Good Luck
