Thank you to parents/carers who attended the Year 4 meeting. Click on the box below for the information we shared.

Welcome back to the Summer Term. We hope that you have all had an enjoyable break this Easter.

Again, Year 4 will be really focussing on multiplication as we prepare for our Multiplication Check later in the Summer Term. We look forward to the challenges ahead and we know that our children will be ready for this!

P.E sessions will be on Tuesday for both classes – please make sure that all jewellery is removed before school if your child cannot do this at school.

We are still lucky to have the Wolverhampton Music School join us every Wednesday morning for a music session too! We know our children love this.

Please be aware that these sessions may be flexible, therefore children need a P.E kit (consisting of black shorts, a plain white top and black pumps) in school at all times. Please can we remind parents that no jewellery should be worn in school with the exception of stud earrings, and in line with Health and Safety guidelines these should not be worn on P.E days. Children may be asked to remove earrings before P.E sessions. If your child cannot participate in P.E sessions for medical reasons, a written letter explaining the reasons why needs to be shown on the day of the session.

Children in Year 4 receive homework, which is expected to be completed on time and to a high standard. Spellings will be given out each Monday and tested the following Monday in your child’s phonics group. Your child will also receive a further 10 spellings on a Friday by their class teacher to be tested on a Friday. We encourage you to help your child learn the spellings and talk to them about the meaning of the words. Children will also have access to Reading Eggs, My Maths and Times tables Rockstars to improve their learning. In Year 4, we will set homework on these learning websites each Monday and they have the week to complete them before a new one is set.

We look forward to seeing your children have an enjoyable and valuable term. If you have any concerns or worries, please arrange a time to speak to one of us by calling the office. You can also contact us on Class Dojo.

Year 4 are really excited to read their brand new book that celebrates 70 years of Queen Elizabeth II.
This book is a once-in-a-lifetime commemoration of the Platinum Jubilee and has been written in collaboration with royal experts and historians!
We look forward to hearing about all of the new facts that the children will learn! 🙂

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!
Year 4  had a wonderful morning with the Police Community Support Officer Team!
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!

Year 4 have kicked off their new topic 'Hey Mr DJ' with a Disco!
The children had a great afternoon dressed as their favourite musical artists.
We listened to recorded music over the years and talked about the different genres of music.
