Welcome to Tiger Class

What a great start to the summer term in Year 4, we are so proud of the children in Tiger Class, who have come so far. We have made great memories, had fun and gained lots of new knowledge. Miss Martin is the class teacher for this year, supported by Mrs Stableford. 


We began the term by writing our own stories with dilemmas based on 'The Suitcase Kid'. Then, we went on to explore newspaper recounts in preparation for writing our own recount on The Roman invasion. In English during Summer 2, we will be reading 'The Mousehole Cat' by Antonia Barber and working towards writing our own stories with a theme before going on to explore explanation texts. 


For maths, we follow the Maths No Problem scheme of work and we began the term by learning about fractions. After that, we explored time. All of the children have shown amazing resilience and perseverance, a huge well done! During Summer 2, we will be working on decimals and we will also be learning about money and length, mass and volume. We would encourage you to be talking about money with your children as much as possible. Mental maths takes place daily. We have also been preparing for our multiplication check which will take place in June.


Our wider curriculum topic for Summer 2 will focus on earthquakes. During our geography lessons, we will be researching the relationship between earthquakes and tectonic plates, exploring what causes earthquakes and learning about the impact of earthquakes.


PE lessons will take place on Mondays and Thursdays. Please ensure your child has the correct kit (red Woodlea t-shirt, plain black shorts and pumps). Outdoor kit is also encouraged (black tracksuit top, black pants and trainers). Kits will be kept in school until half term. On Mondays, Year 4 will be going swimming at Leyland Leisure Centre. They will need a towel, one piece swimming costume or swim shorts and a swimming hat. 


Updates, letters and homework will be shared via your child's SeeSaw account. Details of how to access this can be found in the back of your child's reading record. We also have a class Twitter page, please follow us: @TigerClassWJS


Homework will be set on a Friday to be completed by the following Friday. It will be set online, through SeeSaw. Homework Club will take place on Tuesdays until 4.15pm, where children will have the opportunity to access iPads and staff support. In addition to homework set, children must read at least 4 times per week. It can be a combination of books and Reading Plus. Books will go home on a Friday to be returned the following Friday. Reading records must be signed by an adult.
