Emerald Class

Dear Year 4 children and parents,

Welcome to the year 4 webpage. I hope you all had a fantastic Summer and are looking forward to the new school year. I will do my best to keep this page updated regularly. Please come and visit our page to see what we've been learning in class and also for any information you need to know relating to the class. There is a link at the bottom of the page should you wish to email me about anything. A letter will follow soon with all the important information you need to know about the term. Here are some edited highlights: We will be studying the BFG in our English lessons, as well as celebrating what would have been Roald Dahl's 101st birthday on September 13th. Our topic this half term is: Conquerors and Warriors- part 1 : the Romans (part 2 will follow later in the year, with a focus on the Vikings). Reading books will be sent home as soon as possible, alongside home/school diaries. Please do not hesitate to get in touch via email or come and see me if the need arises. Miss Carter

Violin lesson number 1- my favourite moment: the children holding their violins out, saying:" Look at my beautiful violin!"

Friday 15th September

What a busy first full week we've had in Emerald class! The children have worked really hard. I was particularly impressed with them on Friday, when they were so determined to write well that you could have heard a pin drop in the classroom as they all beavered away. 


In maths, I will be testing them on their times tables every Friday. They will be able to tell you which times table they need to learn. (If they can't please ask me) On Monday I will show them one tried and tested method for learning them. They did well in their first spelling test, which will happen every Friday. 


Next week in maths, we continue our work on number and place value, ordering numbers and rounding to the nearest ten, hundred or thousand. We will also begin to look at negative numbers.


In our topic work, we will produce our final bean mosaic designs as well as learning about what life was like in the Roman army. We will also be designing our (aarrggghhh it's September) Christmas cards for you to but via the PTA later in the term. 

Have a great weekend everyone. Miss Carter
