What Happens To The Food We Eat?
PLEASE FOLLOW THIS LINK TO READ THE YEAR 4 WELCOME LETTER FOR SEPTEMBER 2020.
Welcome to Year 4 Class Wren!
During Autumn 2 we will be learning about the digestive system. The main text for this term is 'The Incredible Book Eating Boy' by Oliver Jeffers.
Each week we will have a different enquiry question...
"Why does chocolate taste so much better than paper?"
"What is the digestive system and why is it so important?"
"What role do the different organs play in helping you to digest your food?"
"Why would eating books not be healthy?"
"What are the teeth in your mouth called and what role do they have in breaking down the food we eat?"
"Why are shark's teeth different from human teeth?

In RE, we will be learning about Mary's journeys.
Year 4 will have PE on both Mondays and Tuesdays. Please ensure that your child comes to school dressed in their PE kit. Earrings should be removed at home or a letter obtained from the office if ears are newly pierced.
In Key Stage 2, we ask that the children read to someone at home every day for 5 minutes. The reading may consist of a variety of texts; from novels, to recipes, newspapers and even football programmes! Remember to sign and comment your child’s reading record in order to received a star stamp. Star stamps will be awarded on the chart inside the front cover. The more stars you get, the more certificates you get!
Don’t forget reading on Bug Club also counts as home reading! Bug Club puts more emphasis on comprehension skills as, ultimately, this is what children are assessed against at the end of Key Stage 2. The children have to answer the questions, by clicking the little bugs, to score points which they can spend in the shop.
Guided Reading will happen every day for KS2. Miss Croft will also allocate their guided reading books on Bug Club under the tab, comprehension.
Reading is an essential area where practice at home really pays off!
Homework will be set on Seesaw every Friday. It will be linked to the work we are doing in Maths and it should be submitted by the following Friday.
Each week children will be given 10 spellings to learn. These may be to practise a particular spelling rule or will come from the Year 3/4 statutory spellings list.
Please can you encourage your child to learn their times tables and their inverses. They have all received a log in for Times Tables Rock Stars. Please log on to https://play.ttrockstars.com/auth to access their personal page.
You can also look at the following websites to times tables help:
All Year 4 children will have their multiplication skills formally tested from 2020. Please check here for more information about the multiplication test. If you have any questions, please see Miss Croft or Mrs Bland.
Year 3/4 break time is at 10:10-10:25.
Children can bring in their own healthy snack (fruit, vegetables). Each child now has their own tray within the classroom so that they can store their valuables.
Children need to bring their water bottle into the classroom everyday which can be used throughout the day. Although these water bottles will not be available at lunchtime, so you may wish to send a named carton of juice or named juice bottle at lunchtime for your child to access if you wish.
