Tiger Class - Year 4


Tiger Class

Welcome to our class webpage. Here you will find some useful information and links about what we have been up to. Tiger Class is a Year 4 Class. Tiger class teacher is Mrs Mack, supported by Mrs Ilyas. Mrs Ilyas will be taking the class whilst Mrs Mack is on her Planning, Preparation and Assessment time. Your child may be supported by other staff for interventions throughout the week too.


PE kits should be worn on a Monday.


Reading books should be brought in on a Friday to be swapped. Spelling books should be returned on Thursday and a spelling test will take place then. Spellings can be learnt using any method outlined in their books. Spellings will go out on a Friday. 


Times tables need to also be practiced every week using Times Tables Rockstars. In Autumn half term we will be revising the 2,5,10, 3, 4 and 8 times tables. See the leaflet below for more information. 


Thanks for your continued support,


Mrs Mack

Multiplication Times Table Check 


In June, the children in year 4 will be taking part in a Multiplication Times Table Check which is statutory for all pupils. The purpose of the test is to determine if pupils can fluently answer a random selection of multiplication questions up to 12x12. These will take place on online devices, this year we will be trailing using Ipads but the children can select to use a computer if they are more familiar it. The test asks children to read and type the answer to the questions in 6 seconds. Please see the attached brochure for more information or catch Mrs Mack or Mrs Prescott. 

Have a look at what we have made in Design Technology this half term.

Computing - In computing this half term we are learning how to produce a podcast. We talked about input and output devices and tried using the Ipads to record different sentences linked to our English and Science.

Class Dojo

At Great Harwood Primary School we love using Class Dojo. It is a behaviour management tool that connects teachers, parents and children and allows us to share their learning and classroom experiences. Each child has a profile with their own avatar which is a monster.
