Welcome back to Year 4


This term our topic is Stone Age.  We are sharing Stone Age Boy by Satoshi Kitamura as our class text. 


We’re focusing on ensuring that we know all our times tables as soon as possible and then working on our speed of recall.  We will be doing weekly times table tests each Thursday.  We will be starting with the 2 times table and progressing through each stage. It is important that the children can answer these questions as both multiplications and inverse divisions.

Our spelling tests will also be on a Thursday and the children will bring home a certificate if they pass the level, which is the indication to move onto the next one.  Times tables and spellings will be the focus for our homework this term.


We are currently doing PE on a Thursday, first thing in the morning to wake us up!   Our focus is on Multi-skills this term.  Can we improve our speed, agility and control?


Accelerated reader is up and running again, so try to read as often as possible at home and we will test regularly in class to see how well you have recalled your reading.  Home/school contact books are being kept in school for the moment but we are recording your books in these. 


We have completed some great work so far, including some cave art and we are currently writing a narrative.
