Year 4 Key Information


Reading - Reading is at the heart of all our learning at Holy Family. To support this at home, please could all children ensure that they read their school reading book every night and that the planner is signed by an adult. Alongside this, it is also key that all children select their own reading for pleasure book which they will also have opportunities to read and share with others in school. 


Spellings - Every Friday, all children will receive a new spelling list based on spelling rules/patterns which have been our focus in class. Please can all children learn ready for the following Friday. It is also key that the children understand any new words met and can apply into their writing. To support this, please could all children take each spelling word and put it into their own engaging sentence which can shared back in class. All written homework must be presented to the highest standard. 


Homework - All children will be given weekly English and maths homework. This is to be completed and returned to school as required. 


PE - PE will take place every Monday and Wednesday. All children must have the correct school PE kit of white t-shirt and black shorts. (Track suits may be worn as the weather turns colder). Please ensure that all children have trainers to enable them to fully participate in this key subject. 


As always, thank you for your continued support.

Please don't hesitate to contact me at school if you have any questions or concerns.

Amazing work from the Y4 class this week! We have shown real resilience when following instructions.

Volcanoes and earthquakes

Y4 have really enjoyed learning about volcanoes and earthquakes. We have used digital maps to locate volcanoes in China, and we have identified volcanoes that have erupted recently across the globe. Y4 have learnt about the role that tectonic plates play in causing earthquakes and volcanoes. Y4 have been particularly interested in tracking a drone that has captured volcanoes erupting. 

Week 4 - volcanoes and earthquakes

Immersive days

Year 4 have loved our immersive days about our new topic China. We have broadened our experiences by trying Chinese foods, using chopsticks and writing opinions about the foods we've tasted. We have also made wall scrolls with traditional Chinese designs and Chinese writing on them, which are proudly hung in our classroom. We have used atlases and maps to locate China and cities within China. 

The children have loved returning to school from 8th March...look at those smiles!
