Welcome to Year 4 Class Wren!

Our topic this term is about 'Ancient Egypt' and has a history focus.

We will be learning about:

  • Different pharaohs and how Ancient Egyptians built tombs for them (pyramids)

Our 'Wow' event is on Friday 6th January 2023, where the children will be mummifying a tomato! Check out our class dojo page for more information.

PE 

Our main PE session will be on Mondays. Please come to school in full PE kit. White t-shirt, black shorts/joggers/ leggings/ hoodie and trainers. No football kits please.

 

Reading & Bug Club

In Key Stage 2, we ask that the children read to someone at home every day for 5 minutes. The reading may consist of a variety of texts; from novels, to recipes, newspapers and even football programmes! Remember to sign and comment your child’s reading.

Don’t forget reading on Bug Club also counts as home reading! Bug Club puts more emphasis on comprehension skills as, ultimately,  this is what children are assessed against at the end of Key Stage 2. The children have to answer the questions, by clicking the little bugs, to score points which they can spend in the shop.

Guided Reading will happen every day for KS2. 

Please record any home reads using the boomreader app.

Reading is an essential area where practice at home really pays off!

 

Spellings Homework

Each week children will be given 10 spellings to learn. These may be to practise a particular spelling rule or will come from the Year 3/4 statutory spellings list. Spelling tests will take place every Friday.

 

Times Tables 

Please can you encourage your child to learn their times tables and their inverses. They have all received a log in for Times Tables Rock Stars. Please log on to https://play.ttrockstars.com/auth to access their personal page.
