Welcome to Tull Class!
Tull Class are taught by Mr Lee for the rest of the Spring Term. Miss Troisi will be back after the Easter holidays. We are supported by Mrs Patel The children in Tull receive a specialist P.E session and Guided Reading teaching on Wednesday afternoons from our Premier Sports Team and Mrs Pinnock.
In Tull class, we believe in learning through fun. Promoting independent learners, confident to have a go, reflect, then edit their work. We use resources and equipment as much as possible to ensure we have a deep understanding of the objectives we cover.
Together, we have set and agreed to follow clear class rules to ensure our Behaviour for Learning is good. We have high aspirations for our class, encouraging each and every child to strive to achieve their best. We recognise each others differences and celebrate each others achievements. We aim to support all our pupils needs in class, using our Well being and SEND team where
Our topic next term will be Burps, bottoms and bile!
As part of our new topic “Burps, bottoms and bile!”
,children will be taking on the role of nutritional health experts and analysing whether cereal bars are as healthy as they suggest. In order to do this, please could children bring empty cereal boxes.
Tull class, along with the rest of year four, will be studing the human body this term. Within this topic we will learn about the human digestive system, including Bottoms, Burps and Bile!
Year 4 Updates
Year 4 are given weekly homework that is set on a Thursday and should be handed back in for marking by the following Wednesday. The homework will be a variety of Maths, English and topic activities. The children will also be given a weekly spelling pattern to learn, which is not tested in a set test but observed in their writing. Children are expected to read every day and have their reading diaries signed with comments as necessary. This should be handed in every day. Rewards are given weekly for those meeting our reading expectations.
How you can help
Please continue to support your child by encouraging them to read a wide variety of genres (poetry, information texts, fiction including adventure, historical stories, diary style books and fantasy) and to read daily. A suggested reading list is available. They should also be discussing their reading with an adult on a regular basis. Ideas for questions can be found in their reading diary. Please approach a member of the Year 4 staff if you require more ideas.
At this stage of their learning journey, children should still be practising key skills regularly, such as their number bonds to 10, and within 100, telling the time both on an analogue and digital clock, adding and subtracting 1 or 10 from any number plus multiplying and dividing by 10 and 100. Ensuring that your child is fluent with their multiplication tables is also incredibly beneficial for them. There are lots of ways that these facts can be practised; chanting, singing, games, apps, web sites or simply writing them out.
