Our Choir

Year 4 enjoyed bringing festive cheer to the residents of Sandygate Care Home.  They sang a collection of traditional and modern songs to entertain them.

Roving Researchers

We used a variety of historical sources to find out about Viking Life.   We then applied this knowledge when constructing a Viking Village. 

All Aboard!

We used physical theatre to build a Viking Long ship, which took Viking Warriors from Scandinavia to England for a raid.  It was a blood thirsty affair!!

Our Learning                                                                      

At Wath Central, our curriculum is underpinned by a variety of concepts that link to the wider world and making an impact

in today's world. Year 4 have been looking at the concepts of strength, sustainability, control.  An overview of our current

project, Does being strong mean you are always in control? and information about the wider curriculum can be accessed 

here.

Reading

In Year 4, your child will be involved in a variety of different reading activities. We have three reading sessions a week,

alongside our in-school library visit which takes place throughout the term. Using a novel of study, we link our writing

activities to reading and include a focus reading week at the end of each writing unit. As a school, we encourage children to read at home at least four times a week. To encourage reading at home, we reward Dojo points and children are entered into a termly reading raffle to receive a prize for their hard work at home.

 

Writing

Children receive high quality English teaching daily at a level which is appropriate to their needs and as part of a learning

journey. To coincide with the teaching of reading, we have a text at the core of our English lessons. We then use the text

as a stimulus to produce interesting compositions and develop our writing skills through focussed SPAG (Spelling,

Punctuation and Grammar) sessions. Our texts will link to one of our concepts each term to encourage further links to our

projects. We also have discrete spelling sessions to study spelling rules appropriate for our age and study vocabulary

through discrete vocabulary lessons. 

Maths

Children receive high quality Mathematics teaching daily at a level which is appropriate to their needs and as part of a learning journey. Using advice provided by the Maths Hub White Rose scheme, children are encouraged to learn new skills, apply concrete understanding to problems and justify ideas through reasoning sessions. In addition to our daily Maths lessons, we also have Maths Meetings to develop the retention of key skills. These take place discretely and focus on fun, engaging activities to revisit prior learning.  At the end of Year 4, children have a National Multiplication Test (SAT) to complete.

Important Information

P.E. sessions - Our current P.E. days are Thursday and Friday. We recommend that your

child has their P.E. kit at school all week in order to participate in both of these sessions,

including if some sessions have to be rearranged due to unforeseen circumstances. 

Homework - Reading cards and spellings are checked weekly on a Friday. Homework

projects and the date they need to be handed in are provided on the project overview

that you can access above. All children will be able to celebrate their project with the class

and discuss the production of their homework.

Keeping in Contact - At Wath Central, we share our achievements on various platforms.

For day-to-day communication, we use Class Dojo where we share what we get up to

during the day and communicate with parents about upcoming events. We also use our

twitter (@wathcentral) to celebrate recent successes from our year group. Finally, keep

checking here for highlights and recent happenings within our classrooms.
