Year 4

A Warm Welcome to Year 4.

Miss Coxon is the class teacher. Miss Good will teach Year 4 on Monday afternoons and will also teach small groups in reading, writing and maths. Other adults working in Year 4 this year include Mrs McIntosh, Mr Groake and Mrs Nice.

 

On this page, you will find information about our class, including news and photos of things we've done!

Reminders

Arrival and Collection Times

 

All children should:

  • Enter and leave school via their external classroom door. 
  • Arrive between 8.45am and 8.55am.  
  • Be collected at 3.20pm. 

 

Breakfast Club & After School Club - Children attending Breakfast Club will need to be taken to the Breakfast Club room upon arrival. They will be taken to their class room, ready for lessons, at 8.45am. Breakfast Club is open from 7.45am. After School Club is open until 5.45pm. 

 

Stationery - It would be great if you could provide your child with a pencil case containing the following equipment: a ruler, glue stick, HB pencil, pencil sharpener, eraser, a fibre-tipped writing pen (if your child has their handwriting licence), a set of colouring pencils, two different coloured highlighter pens, and a green and purple biro. It would also be extremely helpful if the pencil case is relatively small as space on tables and trays is limited. We will provide all of this equipment where required. 

 

P.E. - Children in Year 4 will need to bring their P.E. kit into school on Monday and Tuesday. P.E. kits should consist of navy shorts/jogging bottoms, a house-coloured t-shirt and trainers. 

 

Please click on the following link to be directed to our School Uniform and P.E.Kit Expectations Page.

 

Spellings - Every Friday your child will be taught a new spelling rule to practise during the week, ready for a spelling test on the following Friday. Please encourage your child to spend time at home practising these spellings using the 'look, say, cover, write, check' guidelines in their Spelling Homework Booklets. Please also discuss the spelling rule and, where possible, find exceptions to the rule as an 'above and beyond' challenge. We would be grateful if you could ensure your child's Spelling Booklets are kept in school bags, ready for their Friday lessons.

 

Reading - Please record when you hear your child read in their yellow 'Reading Record Book'. If your child is a fluent reader who reads independently, please encourage them to make a record each time they read for 15 minutes or more and sign alongside.  These books need to be in school every day. 

English

In Year 4, children continue to learn to write different types of texts. We use model texts to highlight key features before the children create their own versions. 

 

The table below highlights the text types and titles that we will be learning in Year 4, as well as the dates that we will be focusing on them.

Maths No Problem

As a school, we place emphasis on teaching Maths using a Maths Mastery approach. We place emphasis on children learning to develop their fluency, reasoning and problem-solving skills. We use Maths No Problem Maths Textbooks and Workbooks in school. To find out more, visit www.st-lukes.hants.sch.uk/click-here-for-parent-videos-for-singapore-maths. This will give you access to parent videos about how we teach Maths at St Luke's. 


The table below highlights the textbook, chapters and focus areas that we will be covering in Year 4. If you wish to purchase a copy of the Maths No Problem Textbook A and B and Workbook A and B for your child to use at home, you can order them at https://mathsnoproblem.com/mathematics/primary. You can also use the same link to find out more about how Maths is taught in school.

 

We ask all parents to support children with learning their times tables at home; this is key to children being successful as mathematicians. Please remember to make use of the following to support maths at home:
