Year 4

Welcome to Year 4 with Mrs Blomeley and Miss Laitl! 

Our topic for Summer Term 1 is Where does water come from?  During this term we will learn about some of the world's most famous rivers and mountains, as well as investigating their key features.  We are hoping to organise a river studies trip to enhance our geographical knowledge!   

Year 4 children will continue their swimming sessions every Thursday and have PE with our Sports Coach each Wednesday.  This term we are also very fortunate to be taking part in Cricket sessions every Friday with Cheshire Country Cricket Club!  Music tuition from Tameside Music Services will continue each Thursday - the children are improving their Penny Whistle playing skills every week! 

Homework in Year 4 will continue with Spellings being handed out each Friday, with a task to write four compound sentences.  Usually, MyMaths will be set weekly to consolidate the learning we have been doing in class during the week.  I will shortly be setting a creative homework task that is linked to this current topic and there will be various activities set on Seesaw, our online journal. Other online learning will include Times Table Rockstars, Education City and Letterjoin, which is our handwriting scheme.

Our aim is for all children to read for pleasure.  We are looking forward to working in partnership with you to endorse this value by encouraging your child to read with you at home daily. 

Look out for our class blogs for regular snapshots of our activities and learning opportunities.
