Year 4 gives pupils the opportunity to refine important English skills in writing for purpose, editing their own work, increasing their grammatical knowledge and developing word-power. This term, the pupils have written persuasive letters against deforestation and emotive narratives around the theme of ecology. All writing tasks are modelled creatively and different stimuli used as a start point. A WAGGOLL (What a good one looks like) gives the children an aspirations example to work towards.
Reading takes place daily and gives a fantastic opportunity for pupils to read and analyse a text under instruction. We have been able to share some challenging texts, with historical or scientific themes linked to our topics, in our sessions.
Regular reading out loud to an adult is still essential and is an homework expectation. It really useful to discuss the reading shared and encourage any inferential questions that the text might produce.
Reading materials are available at the school library, and in every classroom. In year 4 , the pupils have the responsibility of changing their books as they need, so that they always have something fresh and interesting to read.
We encourage children to use the spelling shed website at home. You can find a link to this at the bottom of the page.
Year 4 builds on key number skills with increasingly large numbers.
PE will be on Mondays and Fridays
