Year 4

Welcome to Year 4!

Dear Parents,

We appreciate that some of your children may be feeling a little wobbly about returning to school in September. Therefore, we have put together this transition social story to support them and show them some important places and people in Year 5.

Timestable Rockstars

**We have set up a NEW challenge! Arceri band VS. Kerr band!! Bring it on! Lets see who wins this time!!

 

Conquer Maths

A real push on timestables this week! Again these are all things that we have already learnt at school. Remember to watch the videos if you need some extra help.

 

English

Spelling Games

Reversibles

Use a dictionary to find as many reversible words as you can

e.g.pat-tap

snip-pins

strap-parts

ward-draw

Extension: find as many words as you can that read the same forwards as backwards, e.g. noon, level, eye. These words are called palindromes. Can you think of any names that are palindromes?

 

Word Ladders

Make a list of words making sure that the last letter of each word becomes the first letter of the next word. You could choose a theme. For example, an animal ladder would run as follows:

Lion

Newt

Tiger

Rabbit

Turtle

Don’t forget to keep practising the spelling of the Year 3 and 4 key words too! You could always include your family and play a huge game of pineapple!

Year 3 4 Spelling Words

Story Writing Ideas

Create your own story! Here are some ideas to get you started:

  1. A child wakes up with a superpower
  2. A child finds an invisible cloak
  3. You become trapped inside a computer game that has become real
  4. The teacher draws a monster on the board and suddenly it comes alive and leaps off the board.
  5. A ghost story starts to come true

 

We would really love to see some of these activities that you are busy getting up to! Please use your purple mash account to share your final pieces! I have set a ‘2create a story.’ This means when you are finished we can have a read through of them!

 

Computing

Its been a long time since we did coding! Let’s not forget all that we learnt! I have launched 2code as a 2do too! Show off what you can remember and don’t be afraid to experiment either! You might teach yourself (and me!) something incredible!

 

2Email

We can use 2Email to keep in touch whilst we are not at school! You can use this to talk to friends and teachers! It would be really lovely to hear from you all as we are starting to miss you!
