Sycamore Class - Year 4
Meet the teacher power point
Welcome to the Sycamore webpage!
It is really exciting to be back at school and we have lots of new things to learn.
Welcome to Sycamore Class and Year 4. Your class teacher is Mrs Ryder. Mrs Bolland is our TA on a Monday morning and Mrs Blackledge the rest of the week. Year 4 pupils will have Spanish on a Wednesday morning, building on the skills already learnt in Year 3 with Mrs Culshaw. Mrs Houghton will teach Sycamore class on a Tuesday Morning.
Here is what we will be learning about this term.
English - We will be reading 'The Egyptian Cinderella' and linking to our history work.
Maths - We will be looking at recapping on addition and subtraction methods and using them with money and measures. Your child will be taking part in the Multiplication Check In June 2022. It is very important that they practice their times tables nightly. We will be completing weekly times tables tests as well as working on TT Rockstars. Please support your child in practising!
History/Geography - We will be learning about the environment after October half term.
Science - Our topic this half term is teeth and Eating. We will be finding out about our different teeth and what they are used for.
Music - Year 4 will have the opportunity to learn a brass instrument with a teacher from the Lancashire music service.
Art/DT - We will be doing artwork using the image of the skull and using these to make prints. After half term we will be making pop up books in DT.
PE - PE will be taught this term by a Lancashire sports coach on a Monday and Mrs Houghton on a Tuesday. Remember to wear your PE kits to school every Monday and Tuesday!
PSHE - We will be learning about new beginnings.
So what else do you need to know?
Homework will be set on a Friday on the Dojo class page. This will be 1 piece of English or Maths
Maths will be completed online using the Maths Watch website. -Login to follow.
Children should spend about 20 minutes on each piece of work. Homework is due in on a Wednesday completing the work on the website or taking a photo to put on class Dojo. It is very important to complete homework because it helps us practice what we have been working on in class.
Reading books will be sent home from school. The children are to keep these at home and not return until they are finished. They will also be given a reading record which children must bring them in on a Monday so we can check on their reading and add any guided reading. A photo of their reading record can be posted on dojo as well. We will be rewarding children who are reading at home.
Online weekly spellings will be on spelling frame and dojo on a Monday ready for our test the following Monday. We have a spelling session three times a week. Although the spellings are on the spelling frame website not all words are available so please check dojo for the full list.
Thank you for all your support over and hard work with your child at home. It really makes a difference.
