Year 4 – Dolphins

Welcome to the Dolphins class page!

We are one of the Year 4 classes. Our teacher is Miss Phillipson and she is supported by Miss Duggan. On a Monday Miss Sharrat will teach us for a couple of hours.

In the Dolphins we work hard, but we also have lots of fun! We particularly enjoy it when visitors come in to help with our learning and we are looking forward to going out on trips over the year.

As a class we are involved in lots of exciting activities every week. We enjoy working with our PE coach. We also take part in dance and love to learn tricky routines. On a Tuesday we learn Spanish with Mrs Bennaceur and we will have In Harmony in year 4. We’re really excited to be doing swimming starting in year 4. Our swimming lesson is on a Tuesday afternoon. On a Wednesday afternoon Mrs Sinclair comes into our class to do a short singing session with us.

As well as all of these exciting events we also enjoy doing English, Maths, Science, History and Geography . In English we base our learning around a class reader; this year we will be reading many texts including: ‘The Frog Prince Continued…’, ‘Stone Age Boy’ and ‘The Pebble in my pocket’ are just a few. In Maths, we will use all four operations and are developing our problem solving and reasoning skills. In Science we are looking forward to carrying out lots of investigations and learning about light, electricity, living things, sound and the digestive system. This year our topics include: Stone Age to Iron Age, Anglo Saxons, Vikings, Norway and around the world.

We need to remember to bring our reading folders backwards and forwards to school each day so that everyone can read in class each day. We feel that it is important to work on our reading at home too and try our best to get better and better.

We have been set a challenge of trying to read 100 books before leaving Year 4. Who will read the most?

This year we will continue to learn about the zones of regulation. We will work on identifying how we are feeling and what we can do to get ourselves in the ready to work zone.

Don’t forget, all Year 4 children will do an online assessment of their times tables knowledge in the summer term.

We have access to times tables rockstars. Remember to ask how fast we can answer our times tables. Your child should have brought a copy of logins home so that they can go on Education city, prodigy, read theory, seesaw, activelearn primary, spelling shed. Please use the websites to support your child’s learning.

We will continue to share with you using Class Dojo. Please check that you are still signed up with Class Dojo for your child.
