Year Four consists of two classes named Kestrels and Ospreys. We have access to an open area for group work and are lucky enough to have an outdoor classroom available when the weather permits. Our Key Stage Two library is regularly updated with relevant books that are specifically chosen to engage children on the current topic of study. The children are free to choose a book regularly to further their interests. Both classes have a Maths and English working wall which is designed to enhance the children’s understanding of different topics. These boards are focussed on building a rich and varied vocabulary and mathematical strategies. We cover lots of exciting topics throughout the year which are complimented by offsite trips and experience days where relevant.
Every week, children will receive the spellings we have learnt in class, which will need to be practised at home. We also ask that children read at least 5 times a week and that you take the time to listen to and discuss their reading book with them. Regular practise of times tables will benefit the children in building up fluency in mathematics; Times Tables Rockstars can support your child with this.
