Year 4

Welcome to Year 4

The Year 4 team are fifty four fantastic children and Miss Hinton, Mrs Allmark, Mrs Simon, Miss Capron - Tee, Miss James, Mrs Ellis and Mrs Tolley.

Well done to our Year 4 Woodrow First School 2017 Cross Country Team! You all ran fantastically and we are very proud of you all.

ALL OF THE CHILDREN WILL BE SWIMMING AT OUR THIS HALF TERM - PLEASE HAVE YOUR KIT

 

Miss Hinton - Monday 

Miss Capron Tee - Thursday

 

Please remember that earrings cannot be worn in the pool.

Children with  a verruca can swim as long it is being treated at home [barrier cream].

 

 

 

 

Maths Curriculum

In Key Stage 2 we use the White Rose Hub Maths plans. We follow a concrete, pictorial and abstract approach to learning in maths.

Children should practice Times Tables regularly at home. They can use their login in to access TT Rockstars at home as well as at school. 

 

 

Reading Curriculum

In Key Stage 2 children read a whole class text and develop their reading skills by discussing the text and working on retrieval, inference, deduction, viewpoint, vocabulary and author choice challenges. This year we are starting with "The Lost Wolf". 

We read non fiction texts as part of our Mantle work and every week we take delivery of the First News newspaper. News stories from this publication with comprehension questions are sent home for homework. Children may also borrow books from our library - every Wednesday 3pm - 3.30pm. 

Some children need extra 1:1 reading practice and do this as part of our Reading Champions programme.

 

 

Writing Curriculum

We follow the Year 4 curriculum to learn the technical aspects of writing. We use DADWAVERS [see The Literacy Shed] and Alan Peat's sentence types to support our narrative writing. Our writing is mainly linked to the work we do in Mantle.

We are developing our vocabulary and handwriting by using the Vocabulary Ninja's ideas!

We are also following the No Nonsense Spelling programme. 

 

Children can practice spelling at home by using their Spellodrome login.
