Year 4 2019 - 2020

I am very excited to be teaching Year 4 this year.
I have a passion for travelling, experiencing different cultures and especially indulging in their food. Fortunately, another of my great loves is exercise from skiing to yoga (so it balances itself out …most of the time).
I also enjoy the performing arts and very much look forward to getting involved in the Rode Heath productions.

I am passionate about education and try to make learning fun in my classroom. Children need to be motivated to learn well. Outside the classroom my other passion is for horses of which I am lucky enough to own two. I also have a Rhodesian Ridgeback called Kito.

I have volunteered at Rode Heath in the past, across the Key Stages, and have thoroughly enjoyed it.

Outside of school I am a leader at Beaver Scouts in the local village. I have two boys and we love adventuring, riding bikes, paddle boarding and reading. I also love photography so I take lots of photos of what we get up to.

I am absolutely thrilled to be in Year 4 this year with your fantastic children.

 

Thinking Like an Engineer

Welcome to Year 4. We are now in our fourth year of our engineering project, which has proved very popular with both children and adults alike, and is starting to reap educational benefits. We will be continuing to weave Engineering Habits of Mind into our curriculum - through Literacy, Maths and Science - particularly looking at how characters in our class text might solve their problems using engineering solutions. We will have a number of tinkering projects on the go to develop the children's problem solving skills - so please collect and send in any junk materials that you have at home: plastic bottle tops, cardboard tubes etc. Later in the year we will again be part of the Greater Manchester Engineering Challenge with Manchester University and other schools. Watch our page for more information.

Welcome to Year 4

Continuing the learning journey at home……

Please find below information on the work that I have set your child to complete until we reconvene at school. There is no set way to complete the work but a preferred model could be that your child completes a maths task, English task and a geography/history or science task per day; as well as Timestable Rockstars and daily reading.  There is an expectation that your child continues to fill in their diary on a daily basis

Literacy: 

  • Spelling: suffixes - double letters;  -ation and -ous
  • Grammar: Standard English; prepositions; past and present tense; verbs ending in -ing; subject-verb agreement...
  • Writing: create a menu; wtite a script/description of Hubert's cooking disasters

Numeracy:

  • Mastering times tables - focusing on the 7s
  • Multiplying 3 digit numbers
  • Dividing 3 digit numbers
  • Dividing 2 digit numbers by 10 and 100

Engineering

  • Constructing domes and considering what to house in them

Science

  • States of Matter:temperatures of changing states such as melting or boiling points

Geography

  • The water cycle

History 

  • The spread of the Roman Empire
  • Who were Emperor Caludius and Julius Caesar?

Art: 

  • Celtic patterns

* Don't forget...

Make sure you fill in your reading diary at home - you should be reading at least 4 times a week and recording it in your diary. (This is part of your weekly homework.)

Please regularly practise your times tables, ideally 5 mins per day of TT Rockstars or equivalent.
