Mrs Barnes and Miss Barrass
YEAR 4

Summer Term 2019

Welcome back to the final term of Year 4. We hope everyone enjoyed the sunny weather during the Easter holidays and are well rested and ready for the challenges ahead.

This term we will be getting to grips with Roald Dhal’s Revolting Rhymes and hopefully producing some revolting rhymes of our own.

We will be continuing our focus on the times tables this term, as the children will be taking part in a National Multiplication Check. We would really welcome any support you can give your child with learning and revising all the tables (1-12). We have asked them the practise every night.

Our topic this term is the Romans. We hope to visit Housesteads and find out more about the Roman lifestyle. We will also be planning some exciting ‘creative homework’ for the children to enjoy at home later in the term.

In Science, we will be finding out about ‘electricity’ and trying different ways of making currents.

Year 4 no longer have swimming lessons on a Monday, but instead have the exciting opportunity of training with a Newcastle Eagles coach. We will also have Athletics on a Thursday in preparation for Sports Day, Glynwood Games and the Athletics Festival at Gateshead Stadium.

Please ensure your child continues to learn spellings, which are taken home on Thursdays and tested the following Thursday. In addition, whilst the children make good progress in their reading, they always benefit from reading at home independently and being heard read regularly. Reading books go home every night and should be brought in to school every day for ‘Accelerated Reading’.

As always if you have any queries or concerns, please don’t hesitate to speak to a member of the team.

Thank you for your continued support.
