This term our topic is:
Who Were The Romans And What Did We Learn From Them?
Welcome to Year 4 Class Wren!
Mrs Wingrove will teach Year 4 on Mondays, and Mrs Bland will teach Tuesdays - Fridays.
Who were the Romans and what did we learn from them?
This term we will be learning about the Romans.
Each week we will answer a different question:
English: We will be writing a non-chronological report about Roman baths and a Roman diary.
Maths: Our first units this term will be place value, addition and subtraction.
DT: We will Investigate and model frame structures to improve their stability, then apply this research to design and create a stable, decorated pavilion.
PE: Our PE unit this half term is dance. We will also be making sure we stay active throughout the week with the daily mile, just dance, go noodle and wake and shake.
Spanish: We will start Y4 with a recap of greetings, numbers to 15 and colours.
Music: As well as learning to sing, play, improvise and compose with the well-known song Mamma Mia, we will listen and appraise more ABBA hits.
RE: We will be exploring the beliefs that different religions have about the journey of life and death.
ICT: This term we will be investigating ways to stay safe online.
PSHE: Me and my relationships.
Wow event! On Friday 7th October, we will be going on a school trip to investigate Chesterfield in Roman times. We will find out why they settled there, what they did and what they left behind. More details on cost and timings to follow.

Our main PE session will be on Thursdays. Please come to school in full PE kit. White t-shirt, black shorts/joggers/ leggings/ hoodie and trainers. No football kits please.
On Fridays, children may wear trainers with their uniforms as we will have an additional shorter PE slot, where we will keep active through games, dance and the Friday mile! PE kit is not needed on this day.
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.
Reading is an essential area where practice at home really pays off!
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.
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.
You can also look at the following websites to times tables help:
All Year 4 children will have their multiplication skills formally tested from 2020. Please check here for more information about the multiplication test.
Year 3/4 break time is at 10.10 -10:25.
Children can bring in their own healthy snack (fruit, vegetables).
Children need to bring their water bottle into the classroom everyday which can be used throughout the day.
