Welcome to Year 4
My name is Mrs Gallacher and I am the class teacher in Year 4. We also have Mrs Fallon who helps in our class throughout the day. You are sometimes taught by Mrs Patel too.
On this page you will be able to have a look at all the wonderful things going on in our class. We have separate pages for homework and websites.
Our topic this half term is Water, Water. During this topic we will be learning about the different states of matter, the water cycle and how rivers are formed. With Mrs Hargreaves, you will be looking at the Ancient Egyptians. As part of our English unit we will be looking at stories with a theme and information booklets too.
During Maths we are going to be looking at Roman numerals, negative numbers and fractions!
We have lots of work to be doing over the next few weeks!
Reading - Children are encouraged to change their reading books as often as they like. It is their responsibility! They will need to have 5 parental signatures a week.
Spellings - We have a spelling test every Friday, new spellings will also be given out on this day too. Please make sure you practice spellings at home.
Homework - Homework will be given out on a Friday and would be expected back the following Friday. If you want to hand it in earlier then that's great.
Times Tables - By the end of Year 4 all children should know all their times tables. We have weekly tests to make sure you don't forget them.
As part of the national curriculum, Year 4 will be going swimming on Wednesday mornings. It is part of their school day and essential all children attend. Please ensure your children has the correct kit in school. I would encourage children to bring their kit (swimming trunk/costume, a towel and a hat for girls) in on a Monday morning.
