Year 4 23/24
Welcome to the Year 4 class page. Please feel free to look at all that we have been doing in class. We regularly update and communicate with parents on Class Dojo.
Meet the teachers
Year 4 timetable
Year 4 have PE on Monday afternoons. The school PE kit consists of a plain white t-shirt, plain black shorts or joggers and trainers. A plain black tracksuit top can be worn in cooler weather when we are outside, please ensure jackets are named. Children are to come to school in their PE kits.
Reading books are to be taken home and read every night and returned to school the following morning so that they can be read in school as well. (Please make a note in the reading record book to show when reading has taken place.) In their reading book, children will have a bookmark showing the times tables that they need to learn. Please read through these with your child to help them to memorise the number facts.
Reading comprehension books are sent home on Wednesday evenings. One reading comprehension exercise is to be completed and the book returned the following morning so that the work can be reviewed in class.
A maths family activity will be discussed in class on Thursdays and sent home on Fridays. Please discuss this task activity with your child and send some feedback (either a comment on the sheet or a message on classdojo) by the following Thursday so that every child has something to add to the feedback session.
Children should be encouraged to play on TT Rockstars weekly. Please let me know if you have any problems accessing any of these platforms.
Year 4 Reading
At Millfield we believe that reading is the single greatest joy that you can have and so texts feature heavily in everything that we do.
Children are encouraged to read every night and change their books every day. We endeavour to read with to read, shared class reading, books used in literacy, the class story at the end of every day or even a trip down to our new library.
At Millfield, we don’t teach children how to read, we create readers.
