Welcome to Year 4

Teacher: Mrs. Brocklehurst
Teaching Assistants: Mrs. Goodfellow and Miss Wilson
In Y4 we are preparing for our times table check in June. We will be learning, practicing and perfecting our times tables all the way to 12. Can you answer a multiplication question in under 6 seconds? In Y4 we can!
Practicing times tables at home is a great way to help secure the knowledge learnt at school and also improve speed. Effective ways can be to chant multiplications together or even ask quick fire questions.
Useful websites for children to practice their times tables:

In Topic this term, we are going to be Geographers!
We are going to look at the question ‘What is the land like in the United Kingdom and how do we use it?’ During this topic, we are going on a journey to understand the physical landscape and surrounding seas and ocean of the UK. We will look at how land in the UK is used from rural areas to urban cities, understanding key factors as to why people have settled there.
PE is on a Monday and Thursday, please make sure that you have your indoor and outdoor kit.
Spellings will be given out on a Friday, with a spelling test the following Friday. Please ensure that you are practicing these key words. Dojos and prizes to be won for completion and full marks.
Homework will be given out on a Friday, and should be brought back in the following Wednesday. Homework will often be linked to our times tables as this is a big focus in Y4. Dojos and prizes up for grabs for homework that is handed in on time.
Reading is very important at St Mary’s and it is just as important at home. When you read at home and get your record signed by an adult you can collect Dojos which means prizes up for grabs. Remember a Reader of the Week certificate is up for grabs!
Uniform – We have a beautiful uniform at St Mary’s and we pride ourselves on our fantastic appearance. Please make sure you attend school in the correct uniform, always looking lovely and neat!
