Welcome to the Year 4 Class Page. 

 

Mrs. Smith is the class teacher, and the children will also be supported by 3 teaching assistants, Miss. Boniface, Mr. Ingham and Mrs. Lloyd. Together we will ensure the Year 4 children reach their full potential. We have high expectations and together, with the children, will do our very best this year!

It is going to be very busy and challenging at times as we get the Year 4 children ready to take our timetables test in the summer term! However, learning will be fun and enjoyable! The children will learn to challenge themselves, learn new knowledge and develop skills. Please feel free to have a look at our curriculum overview and ask the children about what they have been learning and enjoying.

You will also find links to sites which the children may enjoy using.

 

Here is some useful information in regards to year 4:

 
Physical Education:

PE for Year 4 takes place on Monday and Wednesdays during Autumn 2 as we are lucky enough to be supported by the team at Oldham Athletic. Each child needs pumps and the PE kit ( Shorts and t-shirt) which could be left safely in school.

Reading

As you may already be aware, reading is one of Holy Family’s school focus; and therefore we are trying our very best to promote enjoyment and engagement to a variety of different books in Year 4. It is very important to listen to your child read as often as you can, reading aloud helps enormously with developing fluency and widening vocabulary. Children are also encouraged to read alone for pleasure on a daily basis.
Reading books and records should be brought to school everyday as they are checked regularly in school and can be exchanged on a Monday or Friday.

Homework

English and Maths written homework is given each week on a Friday to be handed in
the following Friday. We offer homework help to those who need it or would rather
spend time in school consolidating their learning. All homework must be completed
and a regular spelling test and timetable test will be completed on a Friday morning.
