Welcome to Year 4

 

 

 

Useful Information

We love reading in Year 4.  Please help us to read at home and remind us to write in our reading journals at least 3 times and an activity.

We are working really hard on our times tables this year. We are trying hard to learn them right up to 12x12 by the end of the year so any practice that we can get is really helpful!

We regularly use a fun website called Mathletics to consolidate our understanding in maths. You can also use this at home! Just click on the link below and enter your username and password:

 Here are some of the other brilliant websites we use in school to help us consolidate our learning:

House Points!

This year, we will continue with our House Points system to reward children for good behaviour or outstanding work! At the end of each week, the points are counted up and the 2 children with the most points win a prize from Mr Mepham! Pupils throughout the school have been put into of 4 houses - Stars, Sun, Moon and Earth - and the points each child earns will also count towards their house total at the end of each term! 

 

Key Days to Remember!

We have been working together trying to organise ourselves in different ways eg height order, first names and birthday months. The class had fun moving along the bench trying to keep their balance.
