Welcome to year 4

Welcome to Year 4. Year 4's class teacher is Mr Fitzgerald. We are also supported in class by Mrs Thorpe.

Miss Eatherley will teach the class on a Monday afternoon (DT and Computing) and Mrs Squire will teach the class on a Wednesday afternoon (French).

In Maths this half term we will be covering multiplication and division as well as measuring area. We will also be practising our times tables everyday.

In English we are focusing on developing our writing, covering a variety of different genres including newspaper reports, formal letters and persuasive writing. Our writing this half term will mostly be inspired by the book 'Harry Potter and The Philosopher's Stone'

Our topic work this half term is 'Changing Climate' and we are also going to be learning about plants in our science work.

PE will be on a Tuesday afternoon and swimming will be on a Friday morning.

Homework will be set on a Tuesday and should be handed in the following Monday.  There will also be a spelling test each Monday.  Children will be given spellings, a piece of grammar work and a piece of maths.  Please do ask if you are unsure of any of these tasks.  We would also encourage your child to read each evening, even if this is just a small amount - every bit makes a difference.

My door is always open should you ever have any questions or concerns, either pop into school to see if I am available or call to make a mutually convenient appointment. Alternatively, feel free to catch me in the school playground at the end of the day.

Mr Fitzgerald
