Welcome to year 4!
We hope Year 4 as excited as we are for the year ahead. We have lots of brilliant learning opportunities planned and some great topics to delve into. These include ‘Deadly 60’, ‘Peasants and Pestilence’ and ‘The rainforest’. We have also planned trips and experiences to enhance the children’s learning. If any parents are able to help in any way, we would love to hear from you.
Homework will be set in Year 4 fortnightly. The main piece of homework will usually be linked to that term’s topic. As well as this, we ask that each week children practise their set spellings in preparation for the weekly spelling test. The spelling words are usually broken down into key spelling rules that the children are expected to know by the end of Year 4. We would also like children to practise their times tables using Times Tables Rock Stars as often as possible, as practise does make perfect! If spelling sheets or logins for Times Tables Rock Stars are lost or misplaced, please do not hesitate to ask your child’s teacher for a new set.
At Robert Le Kyng we expect children to read at least 5 times a week and get their reading record signed by an adult each time they read. Regular reading will not only develop their word reading skills but also their comprehension and understanding of the books they read. Each week the class who has gotten closest to completing the challenge receives the KS2 reading cup.
If you have any questions, please check the website for details or ask class teachers directly. We look forward to meeting and working with you over the coming year.
