Welcome to the Class 4 page. Here you will find our Topic Web for the term as well as information provided at the welcoming meeting in September. This includes class trip dates for this year.
Please find me at school pick up if you would like to speak to me. or I can be reached if you leave a message with the Office for me to contact you.
Each term we have a different topic that we use across our work. Our Topic Webs give a 1-page view of what we will be learning and doing.
We have some adventurous trips planned for this year. Please see the letter for more details.
In Class Four we will expect children to read at least five times a week. Please ensure that you sometimes listen to your child read, rather than let them read quietly to themselves, so that the understanding and accuracy of your child’s reading can be checked. When reading in school we use the acronym VIPERS to focus on comprehension aspects of reading. This stands for Vocabulary, Inference, Prediction, Explanation, Retrieval, Sequence or Summarise. You may find it useful to focus your questioning on these strands when your child reads at home. For your information please see the VIPERS pack below with further details and example questions.
Please use the Reading Diaries to record the reading your child completes and send them to school every day with your child’s reading book.
This year we will be teaching spelling in an investigative way in school; we will not be sending weekly lists of words for your child to learn. However, here is a list of Year Three and Four words from the National Curriculum which children are expected to spell by the end of Year Four. It would be useful for children to become familiar with these words and practice spelling them at home.
