Year 4 

 
Welcome to Year 4! I'm Miss Duffy and I work alongside Mrs Yates.  
 
Year 4's topic during Spring 1 is 'The Art of Food'. Our main subjects focus during this topic is Science. We will be looking at teeth and digestion. Alongside this we will also be creating lots of Art work and musical compositions during our Art and Music lessons.  
 
Should you have any concerns about your child whilst they are in Year 4, please do not hesitate to either arrange an appointment, or catch us on the playground after school.

How can we help? 

We are often asked how can we help our children at home.  
 
Obviously first and formost the most important thing is listening to your child reading regularly. Even if your child is a fluent reader they wil still benefit from reading aloud. As well as this, time sharing a book with your child is invaluable. There are few children who do not enjoy being read to.  
 
In maths, a key skill is knowing the times tables. They need to know these 'quickfire' - responding to questions such as 3x4 quickly. Help your child to know each tables fact - starting with the 10s and building up -2, then 5, then 4,6.... As they know more of the tables, it all becomes easier as they have less facts to learn for each table. 
 
Telling the time is also a key skill. We have been very pleased to see how you have supported your children in learning to tell the time. The pride on the children's face when they look at our class clock and announce proudly that it is e.g 'half past 11' is a pleasure to see! 
 
When out and about shopping, draw your child's attention to the prices/weights of items and the special offers. Encourgae them to think about what represents the best value. Handling money, paying and receiving change are all essential skills and will help your child ito become more numerate. 
 
Don't miss those 'everyday' opportunities to help your child become more aware of the world that surrounds them .. just discussing which sweets are better value help children to develop their thinking and understanding..
