Welcome to Morpurgo Class

In Year 4, we continue our exciting journey through KS2. It is a time when children can grow and develop their skills and also show more responsibility within the class and across the whole school. There are many opportunities for each child to grow in their knowledge and understanding of the world and their own personal development.

Mrs Oliver and Mr Pryce are the class teachers; the year 4 team is supported by our teaching assistant Mrs Morris, as well as Mrs Phipps, who teaches French. If you have any questions do ask, we want to work in partnership to enable our children to make great progress.

We have a great selection of exciting topics to look at in Year 4. Please look on the term topic web for details and also the long term map for an overview of the year. Some of our topics include; The Romans, Rivers, Ancient Greece and London.

Reading is a key skill for children, it will enable them not only to get pleasure from reading books they enjoy but will unlock learning in all areas of the curriculum.
It is really important for your child to continue reading regularly at home, regardless of their reading ability. During a shared reading time you and your child can discuss new vocabulary, ask questions about the text and think about the characters feelings and motives. We love hearing your children read in school which takes place daily/weekly/fortnightly depending on the needs of your child. We write comments in their reading record, and enjoy seeing your comments too.

Each week we will look at a new spelling pattern and rule that have been taught in school. Your child will have informal tests in school to apply over their knowledge of that week as well as visit previous spelling teaching. This encourages them to learn and practise these patterns for long-term understanding and retain this vital knowledge. We are striving for children to become confident spellers who apply their knowledge in to all areas of writing.

Mathematics Homework
We send out maths homework every week in their homework book that are questions based around the previous teaching; this homework gives you and your child an opportunity to practise and share the strategies that they are learning within school. This year, your child will have a login for TTRockstars. We will be using this programme in school to promote a love and learning of timestables. We encourage the children to use this at home to extend their knowledge further. 

Daily Organisation
The children need to bring a water bottle into school every day; this should be filled with water only. Even during the colder months, it is important that the children keep hydrated throughout the day. A healthy snack can be brought into school to be eaten at break time. They should wear their PE kit to school on PE days which are Wednesday and Friday.

We look forward to all of the opportunities through Year 4, seeing each child make progress academically and grow in their character and personality.
