Our topic changes each term, full details can be found in the "Curriculum Information" section at the bottom of this page.
In science this term we will be exploring sound. Computing work will involve e-safety and word processing.

Each week the children will be given 5 or 10 spellings, which will need to be practised at home. These spellings will be tested on Mondays.
Furthermore, times tables can be practised on Purple Mash (which your child has a login for) and/or other websites. If you would like any other information on these, please contact your class teacher.

The homework is marked with a star stamper:

X1 star is good and equals one house point.
X2 stars is great and equals two house points.
X3 stars is fabulous and equals three house points.

Learning Behaviour in Year 4

Each term we focus on a different learning power. In Term 1 our focus is Engagement and each class has worked on a set of class rules to get the best out of every day. Our learning partners encourage and support our ideas and we are aware that mistakes are part of the learning process.
