Year 4 – Trust in God

The children will learn about Jesus’ teaching and the importance of trusting in him. They will learn that it is not always easy to trust in God (e.g. Zechariah).

 

They will learn about the promise God made to Mary through the angel Gabriel and

learn how Joseph put his trust in God when the angel appeared to him. They will

become familiar with Mary’s song of praise and trust in God (the Magnificat) and

learn that God fulfilled his promise to Mary when Jesus, the Son of God, was born.

 

The children will have a chance to deepen their awareness of God’s love for us and know that he asks us to trust in him. They will reflect on the times it is difficult to trust and on the importance of keeping promises. They will make their own Advent promises. The children will reflect on how Mary and Joseph placed all their trust in God and experience a celebration of the Nativity.

 

At home:

You could help your children by:

  • making an Advent calendar with them

Physical Education (PE)

Our P.E day is on a Tuesday. Please ensure that your child comes in to school on a Tuesday wearing their school PE Kit. The PE kit includes black or navy shorts, a white T-shirt and a pair of trainers. As PE lessons will largely be held outside, your child may need something warmer (eg black or navy jogging bottoms and their school sweatshirt or cardigan).For health and safety reasons, children cannot wear jewellery for PE, so all children need to either be able to remove their earrings or they should be removed in the morning before school.

Reading

The children are expected to read independently at home on a regular basis (15 minutes per night). They should keep a record in their diary of what they have read. Please listen to them read out loud  and record this in their diary. Discuss any vocabulary that they are not sure of.  Your child should also be accessing Read Theory on a regular basis.

Spellings

Children need to be able to read and spell all of the Year 3/4 by the end of Year 4. They also need to learn any spelling patterns and rules that are taught in class and then sent home. Click the file below to see the year 3/4 spelling list and practice some of the words at home.

Times Tables

Y4 - By the end of Y4 children are expected to know all of their tables up to 12 x 12 and associated division facts. Please ensure that the children keep their recall skills sharp.
