Welcome to Year 4!
In Year 4 our topics are:
Autumn term: The 1960's, Roahl Dahl,and Sound.
Spring term: The Romans, Forces and India.
Summer term: The North Wales Coast and The Seashore.
Below is the link for the children to access their MyMaths Homeworks.
We are encouraging the children to access j2e blast on HWB
to revise and learn their times tables.
Reading is so important and we ask that you try and read
as often ask you can with your child at home.
Each time your child reads at home and have a comment in their
reading record they will receive a Dojo point!
10 Dojo points = 1 Merit point!
A spelling list will go home with your child once a week. It will go home on a Wednesday and they will be tested on the same day the following week. It is important that your child learns their spellings and completes the attached activity sheet.
ClassDojo is a website that we use in a variety of ways.
You can access it online or by downloading an app.
Each child has their own avatar and they earn points for different things e.g. working hard, reading at home, good manners etc. If they earn 10 points or more in a week they will earn a merit point!
We post information for parents of our individual classes as a Class Story.
We can also send individual messages to parents
if we need to send a quick reminder or message about something.
As part of our topics we go on a variety of trips.
