Welcome to the Class 4 homepage. We hope that you will use this webpage to find out about what Class 4 will be learning this half term, to find useful information and for some details about how you can help at home.

This half term, our project will be “Pre-history: From stone age to iron age”, Providing the children with an exciting opportunity to learn all about the past and what life was like for early humans. We will be investigating our project along with class 3, participating in a carousel of activities based around the project, on Monday and Tuesday afternoons. This way, children will be able to interact with another class one day a week, sharing ideas and learning outside of their own classroom.



In morning maths sessions we are continuing to work hard to learn our times tables. All children will be expected to know up to their 12 times tables by the end of year 4. Any extra work practicing these at home is much appreciated. 

This half term in maths lessons the children will be studying place value. We will be counting in Roman numerals, partitioning, ordering and rounding numbers.


Reading and Literacy

In class 4 we are developing our comprehension and writing skills through our Literacy lessons each morning. This half term in our literacy lessons, we will be basing our writing on the text: "Ug, Bog Genius of the Stoneage". The text will also link with some of our project work.

Children have the opportunity to select and read from a wide range of exciting books through our Accelerated Reader programme, which is specifically targeted at each child's reading age. We encourage children to read a wide variety of texts and genres to enable them to progress their reading abilitity and comprehension skills. Accelerated reader quizzes are taken in school to support us in assisting children with their reading comprehension. Children recieve fifteen minutes reading time in school each day. We endeavor to foster a love of reading and hope that you will be able to support your child in their reading development by reading with them at home as much as you can. 



PE will be every Wednesday afternoon. Please ensure PE kits are in school for P.E lessons and after school clubs. P.E kit must be plain black shorts, leggings or tracksuit bottoms with elasticated bottoms and a plain white t-shirt. Trainers may be brought for outdoor P.E lessons.



This year swimming will take place at Brighouse swimming pool every Thursday morning. Please make sure kits are in school when it is a swimming day.


Other Information

Water bottles, book bags and reading books must be in school everyday.

Homework will be handed out on Friday and needs to be returned by the following Wednesday. Spellings will be handed out every Thursday, to prepare children for their spelling test the following Thursday. If your child is struggling with their homework or needs any further help they should come and speak to an adult before the hand in date. Your child can also attend homework club, which takes place every lunchtime, if they struggle to find the time at home.

As ever, if you have any problems or concerns then please come and see one us at the earliest possible opportunity. If you need to speak to us for a longer chat, please arrange a time after school as mornings can be a little hectic! Alternatively, please ring or e-mail school and I will be happy to contact you as soon as possible.  

Thank you very much for your cooperation.

Mrs Gallagher
