Oakfield Primary Academy

Transforming lives with exceptional learning - aspiring beyond the expected

 

Year Four

Year 4 at Oakfield Primary Academy has 58 enthusiastic learners, who are ready for a year of hard work and rewards along the way!

Miss Nash is the teacher in Dolphin class.

Miss Hill is the teacher in Shark class.

Both classes are supported by Mrs Jordan as their learning support assistant.  

 

Swimming and PE

Currently year 4 do not have swimming and you will be informed if this changes.

Dolphins have P.E. on a Tuesday afternoon and Friday morning.

Sharks have P.E. on a Tuesday afternoon and Friday morning.

Please can you ensure children have their full P.E. kit on these days.

 

Homework

Homework will be sent out on Fridays and needs to be completed and returned on the following Thursday.

Children should also be reading a minimum of 3 times and have these written in their reading diary and signed by an adult which should be in school every day.

They also have a spelling test on their weekly spellings on a Tuesday afternoon, so if they hand their homework books in early, make sure they have a copy at home to practice.

We are following the Spelling Shed scheme, which you can sign up to at home for extra spelling activities.

 

Maths 

We are currently looking at multiplication and division. Year 4 are expected to know all of the times tables up to 12x12 ready for the multiplication test at the end of the year. 

Practice your times tables with these multiplication games! You can even practice other maths games.
