Welcome to Year 4
Welcome back to Colston's for an exciting new year. We are looking forward to a great year ahead, full of new challenges and we can't wait to get started.
On this page you can find information on our current learning for the term, homework, spellings and other useful information. Don't forget to check the 'Year 4 News' section at the bottom of this page for photos and information on what we have been up to.
Emma, Dawn, Adam and the Year 4 team.
Meet the Year 4 team
Home learning in Year 4 consists of reading, spellings, maths and topic.
Children should aim to read at home for at least 10 minutes every day. For suggested reading in Year 4, see the following link: https://schoolreadinglist.co.uk/reading-lists-for-ks2-school-pupils/suggested-reading-list-for-year-4-pupils-ks2-age-8-9/
Spellings will be sent home every Friday to be tested in class the following Friday. The first test will not be until the second week back.
MyMaths homework will be set online every Friday to be completed by the following Friday. Letters will be going home near the beginning of term with details of how to access MyMaths online with passwords. Please speak to the class teacher if there are any problems accessing homework online.
At the start of each term, children will be given a bank of home learning options to complete each week. Homework should be handed in each Wednesday. Each piece will be marked from 1-3 (3 being the highest).
In the first week, children will just be asked to cover their home learning books.
Literacy and Numeracy
In this section of our web page we will provide regular updates regarding our literacy and numeracy learning. We will endeavour to provide the information before we teach the content so that parents/carers can talk about it with their children if they wish.
This term we will be looking at stories that contain issues or dilemmas, using the film 'Lard' and the short story 'Only Gilt'.
Our spelling focus for the next two weeks will be:
Week 1: Past tense verbs
Week 2: Adding suffixes beginning with vowel letters to words of more than one syllable
Week 1: N/A
Week 2: Word Classes
This term we will be looking at number - place value. We will be starting the year by looking at the following objectives:
Throughout our numeracy learning we will use our problem solving skills to apply our knowledge to a variety of contexts including real life problems.
Cardboard boxes needed!
Please bring in cardboard boxes (cereal or shoe boxes are ideal), up until Monday 18th September, so we can use them to make pinhole cameras.
4W - Thursdays and Fridays
4A - Thursdays and Fridays
4H - Mondays and Fridays
Please ensure your child has the correct PE kit (white t-shirt or polo shirt, black shorts, joggers or leggings, trainers or pumps).
