Growing with Jesus

Welcome to Year 4's Class Page 

Homework - Due Tuesday 5th June 

English - The children have been given a reading comprehension text which they must answer the questions on. 


Maths - We have finished our topic of time this week. The children have work very hard converting time between analogue and digital. I have given them a mixture of revision questions as it is important for the children to be secure in telling the time. 


Spellings- The following spellings have been given for the children to practice. I will be testing them on Tuesday 5th June. It is important that the children can not only spell the words correctly but also use the words accurately in a sentence. Please practice both spelling the words and using them in your writing. 


RE - Please read the Wednesday Word which focuses on the celebration of Pentecost. Make sure all activities are complete and the sheet is stuck in your homework book.  

Spelling Practice

Please practice these Year 3 and 4 spellings at least twice a week. The children need to know how to spell them and how to use them in a sentence correctly by the end of Year 4. 

26th March - Forensic Day 

Year 4 were detectives using their forensic skills to find out who stole the money from the safe. They used evidence such as finger prints, DNA results and footprints to work out who the culprit was ? ? ? 

 World Book Day 

Here are our wonderful and creative costumes for World Book Day. 

Summer Term Learning in Year 4 

Maths - This half term the children have been focusing their learning on Time. It is important that the children can not only tell the time (including 5 minute intervals) but they also need to be able to convert time between analogue and digital. We will also be moving onto Statistics where we will be looking at different types of graphs, understanding the information they provide and creating our own. 

English - This half term we are exploring the video of the story 'The Black Hat'. The children have been thinking about where their own hat could take them and planning their own story. We then went on to writing our adventure story in stages, discussing what writing features would make our writing more exciting. 

Science - The children in Year Four this half term have been learning about the Digestive System. The children have learnt how food travels around our body and are able to name the different parts of the digestive system and explain the functions of each organ. We have also explored the different types of teeth and completed an experiment testing what effects different types of liquids have on our teeth. 

RE -  In RE we have been studying different readings from the Old Testament. We have mainly focused on Moses and his encounters with God throughout the bible. We also have discussed the effects the plagues had on people living in Egypt.
