Year 4

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 and each child will be expected to read to a member of staff at least once a week too! We really value reading in Year 4 and encourage children to read for 20 minutes each night. Once they have read, children should tick their reading diaries and write a comment ready for handing in on Monday.

Homework / Spellings – Spellings will be sent home on Wednesday and tested the following Wednesday. Due to changes in the homework policy, homework is now sent out on Wednesdays and should be returned the following Monday. If the children are stuck they are encouraged to pop in and see Mr Lucas or Mrs Poulter!

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 Mrs Poulter.

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 and retelling the wonderful Fantastic Flying Books of Mr Morris Lessmore! But, with it being so short we couldn’t possibly use is as our class read because, well, we’d finish it in twenty minutes! There was nothing else for it: it was time for a READING WORLD CUP!!

 

We picked a selection of 16 fantastic books and set them off, one against the other. We read their blurbs, studied the covers, read the first pages, and in the end we managed to whittle it down to just 2 books! It was a close call, but in the end Year 4 decided on . . .
