Welcome to Nightingale year 4 class
We firmly believe that all children should be encouraged to follow the school values in our mission statement and to become curious, independent, resilient and confident life-long learners.
Misty Mountain, Winding River
The topic for this term is geography based and called Misty Mountain, Winding River.
This project teaches children about the characteristics and features of rivers and mountain ranges around the world, including understanding and learning about the process of
The Water Cycle.
We will begin by studying various non-fiction books over the term and our fiction consists of books by:-
Michael Morpurgo - This Morning I Met a Whale and Jacqueline Wilson - Cliffhanger
Fractions is the topic for maths throughout term 5.
We will also be focussing on problem solving and investigations, times tables and strategies for mental maths.
Every child should be reading for at least 15 minutes per day. They can read independently or to an adult but the activity of reading should be enjoyable!
Reading for pleasure is something that we highlight in year 4. Sometimes it is nice for you to read to your child - never think they are too old! Our children in year 4 really enjoy listening to the daily instalment of their class book.
Every time you use the on-line reading record your child will be awarded with one House Point - so it is possible for them to gain 7 HP just for reading in one week.
Our reading for pleasure class book is - Awful Auntie by David Walliams
Homework consists of learning times tables, spellings and daily reading for pleasure.
Please remember to use the on-line reading record to note your children's reading habits and any notes about what or how they are reading - I enjoy reading your comments!
