Welcome to the Year 4 page! This class is taught by Mr Lucas!

Year 4 Routines

Reading – Whole class reading takes place three times a week where children either read aloud to the class or to their peers! Research has repeatedly shown that children who read for pleasure are not only happier, but perform better academically than children who don’t (https://readingagency.org.uk/about/impact/002-reading-facts-1/). Therefore we encourage the children to read for 20 minutes each night at least five nights a week. Once they have read, children should tick their reading diaries and write a comment ready for handing in on Friday. If parents could co-sign the diaries too that would be a great help.

Homework / Spellings – Spellings will be sent home on Wednesday and tested the following Tuesday. Homework is now sent out on Fridays and should be returned the following Wednesday. If the children are stuck they are encouraged to pop in and see Mr Lucas or Miss Arundel! There is also a homework club on Thursday lunch times for those who need some extra time/support.

PE – PE is on a Tuesday and a Thursday. The Tuesday’s session is led by a GTFC coach and could be outside or inside. Children will need a white t-shirt, dark shorts and plimsolls. They could also have dark jogging bottoms and a dark long sleeved top, socks and trainers for outside PE sessions.

Staffing – Mr Lucas teaches the class all week and is assisted by Miss Arundel.

Class Books!!!

This term we’re not just working on one book in class. Oh no! This term we’re working on TWO! During English lessons we’ll be exploring a top secret book about Norse Mythology as part of our new Power of Reading scheme! But, with it being so short we couldn’t possibly use it as our class read as well because, well, we’d finish it in twenty minutes! There was nothing else for it: we had to pick another! So we decided to also read Max and the Millions by Ross Montgomery:

This term we have also started whole class ukulele lessons, which are a blast!

As part of our Egyptian topic last term, we went on a school trip to the Hands on History Museum in Hull! There we go to get hands on with some of King Tut’s treasures, study a real life mummy, and we even got to mummify one of our classmates (Sorry Emily!). Still, it was brilliant fun and we learnt SO MUCH!
