Year 4 - Mrs McCondach

Welcome to Class 4M


What a fantastic start to the year we have had in here in 4M.


The children have thrown themselves into our new learning adventure in year 4 and risen to the challenge of improving writing and presentation, explaining their mathematical ideas and exploring scientifically, all whilst investigating new and exciting topics.

Important Information for Y4

P.E days for 4M are Wednesdays and Thursdays, please ensure that your children have the correct P.E kit in school all week so they are able to fully take part.


Please can you ensure you read and sign the home school agreement in the front of your child's organiser. Your child's organiser should also be signed every week ready to be checked on Fridays.


Spellings will be given out every Friday.  Children will be given a spelling homework sheet to complete by the following Friday, including' look, cover, write, check' and 'spellings into sentences' activities. Children will be tested on their spellings the following Friday morning. Why not try some of these fun activities to make spelling practice more fun?



Maths homework is also given out every Friday and is due in the following Wednesday.


Topic homework is given out at the beginning of the half term, children are expected to select and complete three pieces from the ideas suggested. More details about this are included in the homework letters. 


It is very important to hear your child read on a regular basis, therefore the school asks that an adult hears each child read at least 3 times a week. Please make sure if you hear your child read you record it in their organiser as children will not be able to change their reading book unless an adult has heard them read.


Whilst reading with your child you could check their understanding further by asking key questions, such as:

Can you describe the setting?

Can you predict what might happen next?

What can you tell me about that character's personality?

Who was the main character in the book?

From the title/heading, you can predict that the text will be about?

Why do you think …..?

Why did …..?

How do you know that …..?

What might happen if …..?

What can you infer from the picture on the page?

Why do they …..?

How do you know?
