Welcome to 4JS
Your class teacher is Ms Smith. Mr Connolly also teaches in 4JS. Our teaching assistant is Mrs Thomas, and we also have Mrs Lovett and Mrs Broughton supporting us.
Our PE slot is a Tuesday afternoon. Children need to come to school already dressed in their PE kit.
Homework is due in on a Tuesday. Every week you need to complete a talk about, read about, write about and practice. The talk about will be something we have already done at school that week. The read about is to read a book on bug club. If you have any problems with your bug club account please let Ms Smith or Mrs Thomas know with a note in your diary and we can help. The write about task will be something different each week and will follow on from something we have done at school. The practice is to go onto Times Table Rockstars and play some games. Mrs Thomas is able to see when you logged in to all of these websites when she marks your homework.
Some extra resources to help with homework are available on our main Year 4 page.
During the first half term we are looking at the topic of Lightning Speed in the afternoons. This topic is all about the history and development of the internet and World
Wide Web, with a focus on computing. The other subjects included in this unit are art, design technology, science, music, and PSHE. It looks at how computers communicate, the importance of networks, how email works and how the internet enables collaboration. In the first week we sent home the WhISK sheet all about our topic, which would give you all the key information covered.
In English we are looking at a new book called The Barnabus Project, all about 'failed project' Barnabus and how he helps his friends. We are really enjoying the book and excited to write our own story to continue the adventure.
In Maths we are looking at multiplication, division and word problems before moving on to graphs.
