Welcome back everyone after what we hope was a relaxing Christmas break. Happy New Year to you all. We hope that you have had the best possible Christmas and that the children are looking forward to getting stuck into their learning again this year!

The Year 4 Team are looking forward to another exciting term, which will provide a lot of new learning experiences as we focus heavily on our times tables ready for our multiplication check this Summer.

The daily completion of reading diaries are still expected to a high standard. We also need to continue to use the ‘Reading Eggspress’ online resource on a consistent basis to improve our reading and comprehension skills. MyMaths and TTRS activities set weekly are also expected to be completed. If you are having problems accessing this at home, please inform your class teacher. We would encourage you to listen to your child read and ask them questions based on what they have read to ensure understanding.

Phonics will continue to be taught daily in school. Your child will have a set of spellings given out each week that match the spelling pattern that is taught. As always, it’s expected that they return this sheet as evidence that they have practised. In addition to this, the children will also have their Rising Star spellings that are given out weekly and they need to be read/spelt each night after reading.

PE days are as follows:
Tuesday for both classes 

(Please remember to have your outdoor PE kit consisting of: plain black jogging bottoms, plain white t-shirt and white pumps or plain black trainers only.)
Also a reminder that no jewellery can be worn during PE lessons.

 We look forward to seeing you all again ready for learning!

Year 4 children had a disco on their inspiration day! They came dressed as their favourite musical hero and shared great facts about them to the rest of the class. We listened to a variety of musical genres from over the years. Some were live performances! We enjoyed dancing and celebrating great music. What is your favourite music genre?

To celebrate British Science Week, children in Year 4 have been investigating: 'What materials make the best thermal insulator?'
We made our predictions before conducting our investigation.
In the afternoon, we shared our results with Key Stage 2 in a special assembly.

Well done to the children who took part in our mini performance!

WOW!

The children were extremely well behaved and the officers commented on the children's enthusiasm and positive attitude.
Well done children, we are very proud of you!

  

  

Year 4 had fun at Elston Hall Primary School with other pupils from across our trust.
They have been exploring the app 'Garage Band'. The children have learnt many skills that they are going to bring back to Goldthorn and teach their class friends.
We are looking forward to making music!
