Year 4

A day in the life of Year 4

8:45am – Arrival and morning registration

Pupils arrive in class and hand in reading records. Children can then read and/or complete Accelerated Reader.

9:10am – 10:15am – Maths

The principal focus is to ensure pupils extend their understanding of number (place value, the four operations, fraction and decimals) as well as developing an understanding of shape and measure. Pupils have access to resources such as place value counters, Base10 and place value grids to support their learning and taught to access these with increasing independence.

10:15am – 10:30am – Break

10:30am – 11:30 English

Pupils begin the lesson with spelling practice. Three days of the week this focuses on Year 4 spelling rules and the remaining two days we focus on the Year 3/4 Statutory Spellings.  This is followed by a grammar activity.  The grammar objectives will be appropriate to the text type for that week.  This then leads into the Power of Reading.

11:30am – 12:00pm – VIPERS

12:10pm – 1:00pm – Lunch
