Welcome to Year 4
Welcome back to Colston's for an exciting new year. We hope you had a good Christmas break and wish you a happy new year for 2018.
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.

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. Look at the bottom of this page to find this week's spelling list.
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
This term we are reading Spiderwick Chronicles - a fantasy story.
We will also look at a variety of non-fiction texts around our topic of chocolate.
This term we will be looking at fractions, decimals and percentages.
Throughout our numeracy learning we will use our problem solving skills to apply our knowledge to a variety of contexts including real life problems.
We are looking for parent helpers to come in to read with children across the Year 4 classes. If you might be able to spare an hour or two each week, please let you child's teacher know.
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).
