Year 4: Mr Marchant and Mrs Scott

WELCOME TO YEAR 4 

 

We are delighted to welcome you all back to school; the new year has already got off to a great start. Mr Marchant will continue to teach in the mornings and Mrs Scott, the afternoons. Ms Slater will work in the class all week and Miss Mills, Wednesday to Friday. Our new class email address is year4class@scotby.cumbria.sch.uk if you have any questions or need to get in touch.

 

Just a reminder that Friday is our PE day, so the children can come to school in their PE kit, along with their school jumper.

 

Reading books can be brought in to be changed on Mondays and the children will bring home enough to last them the full week (although if they have finished a book before Monday and want to bring it in to do a quiz, that's fine!).

 

Home Learning will be posted here (as in Lockdown), to avoid the unnecessary transfer of items between home and school, and will be set on a Friday. Those children that need to isolate at home for any reason can also access the work taking place in class.

Home Learning

 

Friday 27th November

  • My Maths: Please complete any outstanding tasks and new tasks set for this week. There are also games to play, if the children wish to.
  • TT Rockstars: Please spend at least 20 minutes on here.
  • Spelling Shed: Please spend at least 20 minutes on here.
  • Reading: Please ensure that reading books are finished, ready for the Monday changeover day. 
  • Those registered, should also complete their Lexia or Nessy usage, if they haven't managed to do so in school.
  • This week, we have been learning about Hadrian's wall and the various forts along its route. We would like the children to research what it was like to be a Roman soldier and to have a go at the tasks set as 2Dos on Purple Mash (one is a mashcam!).

 

Spelling 

There is a spelling overview which details the focus for each week along with a list of example spellings on the class page. On Friday, there will be a short spelling test to see if the spelling rule has been understood. In addition to this, by the end of the year, children need to be able to spell and read a list of words known as the Statutory Word List for Years 3 and 4. You will find a copy of this on this page and these will be assessed regularly as well. The weekly spelling list, along with the Year 3 and 4 Word List are on Spelling Shed to be practised regularly at home.
