Year 4

Welcome to Year 4

It’s been a busy start to the new year and we’ve all been working very hard. Everyone is excited about preparing for the special sacraments of Reconciliation and First Holy Communion.

In Numeracy we’ll be revising addition and subtraction with exchange. We’ll be continuing to develop or knowledge of the times tables (2,3,5 and 10) as well as looking at lines of symmetry.  In Literacy we’ll be learning all about the features of play scripts, culminating in producing and presenting our own weather report. We will also be learning how to use apostrophes in our writing and the rules of plural nouns. Our World Around Us topic is weather and we can’t wait to get outside and explore how weather affects all aspects of our daily life. We will be learning about the Water Cycle and how heat causes water to evaporate.

Safer Internet Day is the 11th February so we will be learning about how to stay safe online and the potential dangers of using the internet. We will also be completing coding activities using Scratch Junior.

As it’s Catholic Schools week this month we will be partaking in several special lessons and assemblies based on this years theme of ‘Living in Harmony With God’s Creation’.

Keep an eye out on our page for regular updates.
