Welcome to Year 4!
Miss Yapp - class teacher

This term we have lots to look forward to! Our Topic this term is Knights and Castles. English and Topic will be closely linked this term to get the best writing from the children.
Autumn term - Knights and Castles.
The value for this term is trust.
Please can children have a full PE kit in school everyday. (t shirt, joggers/shorts, trainers) thank you.
Please encourage your children to hand in their Partnership Books.
Please can children remember to have water bottles in school!
What Year 4 will be covering this week: 11th November 2019.
This week we will be looking at multiplying and dividing by 6, 9 and 7.
Please make sure children are practising their times tables at home.
This week we will be looking at retelling our story book Knights in Training Dragons can't swim.
This week we will be looking at inverted commas, fronted adverbials, expanded noun phrases and commas in a list.
We will be reading the series of Knights in Training this half term. Children will be asked a variety of questions whilst we are reading. We will also use this book to add to our vocabulary wall to extend children's vocabulary knowledge.
Homework and Key Dates:
Maths homework will be handed out on a Monday and is due back the following Monday.
Spellings will be handed out on a Monday (in homework book and on the website) and children will be tested on the Friday.
We encourage you to use times table rockstars and Spelling Frame.

We are once again running our popular Eisteddfod performance poetry competition across the Multi Academy Trust this year.
The children can learn a poem of their choice (and can even write their own poem if they wish)
Find below some example poems to give you an idea of appropriate level for your child's year group. Please note that whilst you may use these poems, there is no expectation to and we love to see variety and children's own choices.
Performances will be judged on how well the poem has been learnt, clarity, expression and actions used to enhance the performance.
The first round of class auditions will be on Friday 22nd November, followed by the semi finals on Friday 24th January and then the finals on Thursday 5th March - we can’t wait to hear the children’s performances!
Please do ask if you have any questions regarding the Eisteddfod. Thank you.
Here are some websites linked to poetry. Discuss what they feel the poem means, what they think the author's intended impact on the reader is, how it differs from another poem and whether or not they like the poem.
Spellings - Test date 15.11.19
