Year 4

Meet our Team!

Welcome to Year 4!

Respect   Relationships   Resilient   Reflective   Responsible

 

A very warm welcome to Year 4 from Mr Langford, Mrs Burdass, Miss Broderick, Mr Wilson, Mrs Turner and Miss Locke! This year, our teaching assistants are Miss Wint, Mr Priestley, Miss Dawson and Miss Pearson.

 

Children in year 4 will be taught English and Maths in their year groups.

The five year 4 teachers are Miss Broderick, Mrs Burdass, Miss Locke, Mr Langford and Mr Wilson.

 

Year 4 is an amazing time for everyone as the journey through KS2 begins and the children really develop their skills for independent learning. Throughout this year the children will be exploring a variety of exciting and engaging cross-curricular topics including: The Vikings, The Mayans, Our Continent and Healthy Me.

 

All of our topic work is centred around a book. Our Autumn book is How To Train Your Dragon.

 

All of the topics have a Creative Homework Project linked to them, which will give the children the opportunity to showcase their talents, strengths and interests. This will be given to children at the start of each half term.

 

Could we please ask that you ensure PE kits are kept in school all week. Our P.E days are:

 

Class 3: Wednesday and Thursday

Class 4: Monday and Thursday

Class 5: Monday and Thursday

Class 6: Tuesday and Friday

Class 7: Tuesday and Thursday

 

 

Homework expectations:

  • We expect children to read as much as possible. Children in year 4 should be reading daily.
  • Children are given a spelling test weekly (every Monday), so we expect children to practise their spellings at home. We have one practice session in school to help children with this. Spelling lists will be put on Class Dojo weekly.
  • By the end of year 4, children already should know all of their times tables. We recommend that children practise these as much as possible. We are now signed on to 'Rockstars Times tables which is proving very popular and practise makes perfect when it comes to times tables!

We believe, all children should have a love for reading and we actively promote this in school. If you aren't enjoying a book- it's the wrong book for you! Find one you fall in love with and can't put down!

Attendance:

The more children are in school, the more they are learning. Our aim is to have children in school as much as possible. Ideally, we are aiming for at least 97% attendance.

At Broomhill we have weekly SEAL lessons. SEAL promotes social and emotional literacy and equips children with the skills they need to lead a healthy, happy life.

Anti-bullying at Broomhill; All classrooms have this Anti-bullying poster displayed, which has been designed by some of our chidlren. Every year, Anti-bullying is marked by having themed lessons as part of our SEAL work and where appropriate English work.

Year 4 Spellings

Spelling tests happen weekly on a Monday morning. Your child will perform their spelling test with their English teacher. Their weekly score is placed in their school diary, along with their new spellings.

 

Within the week, the children will practise their spelling pattern at least twice a week.

 

Their spelling list will also be posted onto ClassDojo.

Class Dojo

Support your child with their behaviour at Broomhill Junior School by signing up to Class Dojo.

https://www.classdojo.com

 

The staff at Broomhill will use ClassDojo to communicate with you. By using the app, teachers can provide your child with positive points for a variety of reasons. It also allows teachers to instantly share messages, updates and photos from the class.

You will need to receive a code from your class teacher to see all the benefits.

Here are some photos of the homework from Autumn 1, based on The Vikings.

Classroom displays

At Broomhill we are proud of the hard work our children put into their work. Have a look at some of our classroom displays. I am sure you will agree that they look fantastic!
