Our class is made up of enthusiastic, creative and considerate year 4 children. In class, we respect each other and are proud of everyone's achievements. We never give up and value a growth mindset (I don't know how to do this 'yet'!). We work together to create a warm and welcome atmosphere, where every class member feels valued, safe and listened to.

Spring Term 2021
This half term, we are reading the text 'The Firework Maker's Daughter' and 'Mulan'. We are using this as our stimulus to write our own fantasy story. At Cherry Tree, we use the Talk for Writing process, where we follow three stages: imitation, innovation and invention. For the rest of this term our focus is SPAG.
We love and value reading in year 4. All children read every morning and once they have finished their book , they quiz. Also, every child is heard read at least once a week, with a short discussion about what they have read. Our class book is 'The Night Bus Hero' by Onjali Q Rauf. We have daily guided reading sessions and we practise and apply key comprehension skills. Year 4 uses reading VIPERS to help us remember these important skills.
In Maths, our focus is fractions. Year 4s need to know ALL of their timestables. Please encourage your child to learn all of their times tables on a daily basis. Times Tables Rockstars is one way to get in lots of practice. See the link below to access this.
UPDATE: Because of all the extra hard work and practice the children have been doing with their TTRS, as a school, we have moved up 7 places in the 'Nearby Schools' league. FANTASTIC EFFORT!
