Year 4 Routines

Reading – Group reading takes place weekly, where each child is listened to within a group of similar ability children. Discussions are had around a focus to ensure clear understanding. This is recorded in their Reading Record. One to one reading occurs as and when it is needed. The Guided Reading book is changed upon completion by the teacher and does not go home. The children are however encouraged to read daily and can choose a book from home or from the class library or the school library. This is to be recorded in their Reading Record that goes home with them each day. They can change these books as often as they need to as long as it has been signed as completed by a parent in the Reading Record. To encourage reading at home the children are given a raffle ticket each time they read and this is entered into a weekly draw where a small prize can be won.

Homework / Spellings – Homework including spellings are sent home on a Wednesday. All homework and spellings are due back on the following Monday. Spelling tests are held on a Monday. Homework will be a mixture of English, Maths or a topic based activity.

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 – Mrs Nicholson teaches the class all week and Miss Arundel is the teaching assistant.

We even made our own obelisks for homework.

In our topic “Lets Plant It” we have been looking closely at soil and plants and have been getting ready for our flower show.

We made our own chocolate bars. That was fun!

We really enjoyed our visit to the Hands On History Museum in Hull, where we learnt a lot more about Ancient Egypt. We even saw a real mummy! IMG_1131IMG_1124IMG_1111IMG_1108IMG_1104
