Year 4

Summer 2022 Term 1

 

Welcome back Year 4 children and parents. We hope you all had a lovely Easter. We would like to welcome back Miss Leatherbarrow who will now be teaching the children Thursday and Friday. Miss Leatherbarrow is delighted to be back with Year 4!Mrs Bales Mrs McComish and Mrs Black will also continue to teach and support your children throughout the coming term.

 

Numeracy

 

During Summer term 1 the children will be learning about Area followed by Money and then Time. The children will continue to develop their reasoning and problem solving skills too.

 

Literacy 

 

For the first part of summer term, the children will be learning how to write non-chronological reports using Titanic as a starting point. The children will also be writing imaginative stories with an emphasis on myths and legends, as well as drafting play-scripts. Our grammar focus will include expanding noun-phrases and adverbial phrases, using fronted adverbials, and ensuring sentence cohesion with determiners and pronouns.  

 

Creative Curriculum

 

Our Creative Curriculum topic this term will focus on learning about different textile techniques such as sewing, stitching, weaving, applique, and dying fabrics. The children will be expected to make a final product using the skills they have learnt. 

Towards the end of Summer term 1 the children will be taking part in the whole school 'wow project'. This will involve a trip which will then facilitate a wide variety of learning opportunities.

 

Online Learning

 

Should your child be self-isolating and well enough to attempt school-work, we will be issuing home-learning via Microsoft Teams. The children each have a unique log-in to access St Michael’s Year 4’s Teams page and these log-in details were sent home with each child prior to the Christmas break. If you do not have your child’s log-in, please contact the office or Mrs Bales. All work will be uploaded to Microsoft Teams daily and will include a maths task, an English task, and weekly science, RE, PSHE, Creative Curriculum and Spanish tasks. Children will also be expected to undertake daily times-tables practice, spellings practice and reading. Mrs Bales will respond to all queries via the Teams class chat page. For remote learning log-in guidance, please visit: Remote Learning - Microsoft Teams | St Michael's CofE Primary School (st-michaels-school.org)

 

Multiplication Tables Check (MTC)

 

Just a reminder that children will be sitting their Multiplication Tables Check at school in June of this year. Revision has already begun in school, and the children will have opportunities most days to sit the online test on a school iPad or PC. Support with times-tables at home will really help give your child the opportunity to do their very best in the test.

 

The following website is highly recommended for supporting your child and is the website they are currently using at school:  https://www.timestables.co.uk/multiplication-tables-check/

 

As ever, if you require any further information, please come and chat to the class teacher after school or send an email via the school office secretary@st-michaels-school.org

 

Homework

 

Alternating Maths and English homework will be sent home every Monday, and marked the following Monday. All children will be expected to complete their homework by the deadline. Please remind your child to bring in their homework book every Monday so that homework can be marked and new homework can be issued. 

 

Children will also benefit from support in learning their times-tables, and more information about this can be found in the 'Information for Year 4 Parents and Carers' document attached below.

 

In addition to the above, please ensure that your child reads aloud every day if possible, and that their reading records are signed by an adult as confirmation.
