Welcome to Woodpeckers!
Mr Price is the class teacher and Mrs Lever and Mrs Lingham are our teaching assistants.
Welcome to year 4!
On this page, we have included the curriculum plan for the year so that you can see what we will be learning about. Please also find the year group spellings. We will of course be learning these in school but it is always beneficial to practice these regularly at home also.
Please also see the 'meet the teacher' powerpoint for those of you who have questions or could not attend.
Please see scroll down for our curriculum plan.
A few things to note
We will be having P.E. lessons on a THURSDAY and a FRIDAY as of the week beginning 30.1.23. This will be sent out via the office this week.
Fridays will be inside and Thursdays will be outside. Please can children arrive in PE kit on both days.
Thursdays it would be worth bringing a spare pair of socks and shoes (and a carrier bag) as it may be muddy and wet as the term goes on.
Spellings: The copy of the Year 3/4 spelling list is here.
Reading: As usual, we ask you to read 5 different times at home each week to an adult. The adult will need to sign your reading record after you have read. Most children are free readers now. Children can bring a book from home or choose one from our class book shelf. We are here to help you choose a great book if you would like this. Please remember to always bring in your reading record every Friday for us to check your reads and then give you your well deserved raffle ticket for 5 reads and a parental signature.
Homework: Weekly homework will be set on the Learn platform on a Friday and should be completed in the homework book provided. Homework is due in the following Wednesday. Everyone is expected to complete homework. We would like you to continue reading (as described above) as this is one of the most important skills to keep developing. Additionally, please continue to learn and practice your spellings and times tables each week. Everyone has a rock stars login which you can use as often as possible.
Times Tables: These are especially important in Year 4 as we will be taking part in the national Times Tables tests. We will be practicing a lot in class but please try your best to become a true Times Tables Rockstar at home!
Below are PDF versions of our class timetable, meet the teacher presentation, curriculum overview and suggested reads for you to download.
