Welcome to Year 4!
The Year 4 teachers are Mr Banner, Miss Begum and Mr Whatley and we also lucky to have Mrs Riaz, Mrs Iqbal, Mrs Parveen and Miss Jones.
Throughout Year 4 we are busy developing the skills that we developed in Key Stage 1 as well as in Year 3, ready for Upper Key Stage 2. Our topics include learning about The Romans, Electricity and Global Gourmet.
Planned visits include a trip to Redditch Theatre to see a pantomime and a history day with Professor McGinty to help us learn even more about our Romans topic.
Throughout Year 4, we are always busy developing our reading skills and transferring them into our writing, to enable us to become confident readers and writers, ready for the next stage of our learning in Upper Key Stage 2, any help that you can give your child is always greatly appreciated.
Religious Education (RE) at Arden is aimed at develops an understanding of 24 different dispositions, which embrace all religions and recognise the children’s own religious experiences.
To have a successful Year 4, all pupils are encouraged to use ‘Times Table Rockstars’ to help them to practise their times tables and related division facts daily and also to complete their weekly homework related to curriculum learning which their teacher will give them on Fridays, as well as learning their weekly spellings. We would also like to recommend that children read for at least ten minutes daily as this has a significant impact on improving their reading skills.
PE lessons take place on Monday and Thursday each week so please remember your PE kit so you don’t miss out!
We look forward to developing a strong working relationship with you for the benefit of your child.
