Welcome to Year 4
Welcome to Year 4 Teacher: Claire Hall Teaching Assistant: Haidee Llewellyn PPA cover: Jacqui Winter - French Sally Petty - PE Class Governor – Ms J Lloyd
Timetable PPA cover – Tuesday afternoon PE – Monday and Tuesday Spelling Test – Friday Library and home reading books changed once a week
Homework Our school policy is in line with guidelines that suggested an average of 1. 5 hours per week to include; Reading at least three times per week. Spellings Numeracy activity/ games Literacy based activity Regular practice of number bonds and tables. In addition to this children may be asked to find information in preparation for their learning in class.
Reading in Year 4 n At the start of the year every child has a home reader appropriate to their ability. n They will also have the opportunity to select a library book of their choice. n Please could you comment in the reading diary about their reading at home. These should be sent into school every day. n When your child no longer needs the support of the home readers they will only take home a library book to read with you at home in the same way. n It is still important to listen to and read with your child regularly.
Literacy Guided reading will be taught every morning between 9. 00 and 9. 30 The children have a number of reading related tasks including comprehension, reading out loud, spelling and grammar exercises or independent reading. The teacher and teaching assistant will be working with each group at least once a week. Literacy lesson every day – can be cross curricular. Focus can be – writing, speaking and listening (including drama), reading comprehension, phonics, handwriting, spelling punctuation and grammar (SPAG).
Literacy for this year will build on last year’s work. My aim is to give opportunities to write at every turn. The genres that will be covered this year include: Stories in a familiar setting Image poetry Information texts Fables Myths and Legends Instructions & explanations Poems to perform Chronological and Non-chronological reports Fantasy Stories from other cultures Stories in a historical setting Syllabic poetry NB Grammar, punctuation, spelling and handwriting will be taught throughout each unit.
Maths Curriculum Children will follow the guidelines set out in the new national curriculum in maths. Ø Number and place value Ø Addition and subtraction Ø Multiplication and division Fractions (including decimals) Ø Statistics (Handling Data) Ø Measurement Ø Geometry – properties of shapes Ø Geometry – position and direction Ø
Number – number and place value Statutory requirements Pupils should be taught to: count find in multiples of 6, 7, 9, 25 and 1, 000 more or less than a given number count backwards through 0 to include negative numbers recognise the place value of each digit in a four-digit number (1, 000 s, 10 s and 1 s) order and compare numbers beyond 1, 000 identify, represent and estimate numbers using different representations round any number to the nearest 10, 100 or 1, 000 solve number and practical problems that involve all of the above and with increasingly large positive numbers read Roman numerals to 100 (I to C) and know that over time, the numeral system changed to include the concept of 0 and place value.
Number – addition and subtraction Statutory requirements Pupils should be taught to: add and subtract numbers with up to 4 digits using the formal written methods of columnar addition and subtraction where appropriate estimate and use inverse operations to check answers to a calculation solve addition and subtraction two-step problems in contexts, deciding which operations and methods to use and why.

Geometry – position and direction Statutory requirements Pupils should be taught to: describe positions on a 2 -D grid as coordinates in the first quadrant describe movements between positions as translations of a given unit to the left/right and up/down plot specified points and draw sides to complete a given polygon.
Statistics (Handling Data) Statutory requirements Pupils should be taught to: interpret and present discrete and continuous data using appropriate graphical methods, including bar charts and time graphs solve comparison, sum and difference problems using information presented in bar charts, pictograms, tables and other graphs.
Mathletics is an online Maths learning platform, which is designed to help children enjoy maths and improve their results. The PA has funded a subscription for all the children. Individual log-ons will be sent home on Tuesday 20 th September.

Moor Hall School Golden Rules Do be gentle Do listen Do look after property Do be kind and helpful Do be polite Do work hard Do be honest
Individual Reward – Golden plate Every child has a ‘plate’ template which is divided into 7 sections – each section relates to a Golden Rule. Thank you for being honest Thank you for working hard Thank you for being gentle Thank you for being polite Thank you for looking after property Thank you for being kind and helpful Thank you for listening
Individual Reward – Golden plate Children will be awarded a sticker for specific section when they have demonstrated that rule exceptionally well. Children who complete their plate will receive an award at the end of each term. Plate 1 – certificate and Moor Hall pencil. Plate 2 – certificate and Moor Hall pen Plate 3 – certificate and Moor Hall ruler If a child is awarded all 3 plates within an academic year they will be rewarded with a Moor Hall enamel badge.
Golden Rules Rewards There will be a Golden Rules assembly each half term. Class teachers nominate 7 children, one for each Golden Rule, who has demonstrated consistent, positive behaviour. These children will receive a special certificate.
Rewards Children can earn house-points for almost anything! Often it will relate to: effort, questioning, listening, manners, empathy etc. 1 hp – Well done, better than the expectation 2 hp – Super, over and above the expectation 3 hp – Very rare! 5 hp –Mr. Steggall only (Head teacher's award) Each class will use a ‘classometer’ ranging from -5 to 10 to monitor behaviour throughout the day. The classometer should return to 0 at the end of each day. Once the children reach 10 they should be rewarded with a golden coin (or equivalent). Class teachers to negotiate with the children their choice of reward once the class reach 5, 10, 15 and 20 golden coins.
Consequences This staged approach will be used for each session in KS 1 and across a half-day session in KS 2 Stage One – Focus on Golden Rules Re-focus the child on the Golden Rule they are breaking. Positive reinforcement of the Golden Rules around the child who is breaking them. Stage 2 – Manage their Environment Staff will make a statement indicating that the behaviour is misplaced for that environment (classroom playground). Provide choices – change of location within that environment. Change the child’s location to a different environment. (This is referred to as Time Out – see Stage 3) Stage 3 – Putting it Right. The “Put It Right” sheet is a strategy to help children reflect upon negative behaviour, offer an opportunity to rectify mistakes, and move on. “Put It Right” sheets will be completed for any time-out period. Staff will review completed “Put It Right” sheet with the child before they can return to their original environment. “Put It Right” sheets should be kept in a class file for future reference
Put It Right – KS 2 Put It Right – Reflection sheet Which one of our Golden Rules was I not following? The reason I wasn’t following it, was because……. . What were the consequences, for me and others, of me not following the Golden Rule? What can I do to put this right? From now I will …
