Welcome To Year 4
Giraffes' teacher: Miss Lake
Zebras' teacher: Mrs Kejriwal
Y4 teaching assistant: Mrs Vincent
This term we will be learning about the human and physical geography of North and South America. Within this, we will be using maps, atlases and research to find out about different countries, climates and landmarks in North and South America and making some comparisons to the UK and Reading. As part of this topic, we will also be learning about the Transatlantic slave trade in the 1700s and 1800s.
In year 4, we complete reading, online maths skills and projects. We learn our times tables and spellings in school every day but still need to practise them at home too.
Reading should be completed at least 5 times each week and recorded in diaries. We complete an online Accelerated Reader quiz in school or at home (link is at the bottom of this page) when we have finished our book to show how well we understood what we read. Reading diaries must be signed by an adult each time a child reads. The number of times read is counted up on a MONDAY.
On a THURSDAY we turn in our online maths skills linked to the skills we have been covering in class. The My Maths website login details are stuck in the front of our diaries and the new task will be accessible from Thursday morning.
On a FRIDAY we hand in our projects once a term. We can choose from different options but must turn them in via Google Classroom by the date given. The options, date and classroom code are stuck in the back of our diaries and are in the document below.
