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.

 

All children in Year 4 will be attending swimming on a Friday in small groups as an introduction, before they begin their full swimming sessions in Year 5. 

 

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. The children in Year 4 will have to complete a Multiplication Times Table Test in June and will have 6 seconds to answer questions up to 12 x 12. These will be completed on the laptop or ipad. In Autumn half term we will be revising the 2,5,10, 3, 4 and 8 times tables. 

 

Thanks for your continued support

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. The children who gain enough points during the week will be allowed to complete a variety of exciting activities on a Friday afternoon! Which activity will you choose?

Purple Mash

At Great Harwood Primary School we have signed up for a fantastic programme called Purple Mash. This programme allows children to use ICT across the curriculum to support their learning. The children have their own logins and will be set tasks for homework. Keep your eyes on the noticeboards too as your child's work maybe displayed!

Here is the list of expected spellings to be learnt in years 3 and 4

Your child should know all these spellings by the end of the year and weekly spelling tests will be based around these and their spelling patterns.
