By the end of Year 4 the children should be able to read and spell all the common exception words. Find them as a list below and in a Power point to practise reading and spelling at home.
Look at what we have been doing in Year 4.
Spring Term 1
Welcome back to all of the Year 4 children, parents and carers. This half term we will be exploring a new topic 'Moving Vehicles'. Throughout this new topic the children will be creating and designing their own moving vehicle using a range of materials. They will also be writing an explanation text supported through the text Farther by Graham Baker Smith. In addition to this, the children will be looking at persuasive texts followed by writing and filming their own television advertisements.
In Mathematics the children will continue to develop their multiplication and division skills. Please can you continue to support you child to learn their times tables, the Year 4 expectation is that all of the children know up to their 12 x tables by the end of the year.
In Science the children will be learning all about Electricity. This will link o our design and technology topic, as the children will be adding lights to a model vehicle that they have constructed.
PE lessons. Please ensure that your child has the correct PE kit in school on these days.

National Poetry Day
We are very busy this week in Year 4 enjoying the season of Autumn. We have been reading and exploring a poem about Autumn which we will use to help us write our own poems later. It is National Poetry Day(Oct 4th) so we are experiencing being poets this week. To stimulate our ideas for our poems we went for an Autumn walk in the local park and are creating lots of art work from the natural objects we found. Here are some photos of us enjoying our Autumn walk.
Masters of Multiplication
In Year 4, we have been focusing on improving our multiplication skills through exploring and using our skills to play games. This year we are aiming to be masters of multiplication by knowing our times tables!
