Welcome to Sycamore Class!

 

Teacher – Sally Whyte

 

In Year 4 we will continue to help your child become more independent both in their reading and their writing. The children will become confident readers and this will support their learning in other subjects.

 

In English we will be focusing on different writing genres, as well as extending their sentences in order to make their writing more interesting. Speaking and listening is still an important part of the curriculum and the children will be encouraged to verbally explain their thinking in well-structured Standard English.

 

By the end of Year 4 all children will be expected to know all of their times tables by heart together with related division facts. In our Science topics we will be using more scientific vocabulary to describe the objects and processes we are studying. Our learning environment is always fun and exciting and engages the children in their learning.
