Year Four

In Year Four there are two classes, taught by Mr G Grainger and Mr J Instrell.

Please use the following email addresses to contact the teachers:

george.grainger@hungerfordacademy.org

jonathon.instrell@hungerfordacademy.org

We are supported by Mrs Rogers, who covers PPA for both classes.

Additionally, Mrs Gill supports in 4RM.

 

The Year Four classrooms face the junior playground and children enter and exit the building through 3SH.

 

Essentials:

Children need to have a P.E. kit in school which consists of a white or blue T-shirt, shorts and school pumps, plus joggers for cooler days.

A pair of Wellington boots should also be brought into school for Outdoor Education which is on alternative Wednesday afternoons.

Children need reading books and reading records in school every day. Reading books should be brought in school book bags and will be stored in classroom trays

 

Homework:

 Homework sheets are sent home each half-term with suggestions of activities that can be completed. Any piece of work that is completed is welcomed into school to be celebrated with the class. At the end of the half-term homework sheets can be sent back to school with a guardian’s signature next to any completed tasks. Dojos will be awarded for those completed tasks.

Children are expected to read daily and we encourage comments (yours and theirs) to be made in reading records. Reading really is integral to your child’s learning so please do read at home. When reading we ask questions, using the reading gem strands, to help develop understanding of the text.

The document below shows each strand and examples of questions that you can ask your child about their book.  When reading at home, questioning your child will help to deepen their understanding of the text and prepare them for comprehension work at school.

Spellings are also set for each half-term. These are practiced throughout the week during daily SPaG sessions. Please do practice these spellings at home as well.

Topic:

Our Summer topic is all about Rainforests. All learning objectives and content will be taken form the Year Four curriculum map and, where possible, lessons will be linked to the topic.
