Welcome to Deer class.

In Deer class we are committed to our learning and becoming the best we can be. We know that we learn from our mistakes, and we’re encourage to have a growth mindset in order to overcome challenges.

A typical day in Deer class will involve a reading and writing lesson and a maths lesson that includes Times Tables Rockstars, flashback questions and reasoning problems. We also have an arithmetic session and multiplication check on alternate weeks within a maths session. In addition, we will study a full range of other subjects; science, history, geography, art, computing, music, PE, RE, French and PSHE on a rotating timetable.

We are extremely lucky in year 4 to have our own iPads that we use to support our learning. The iPads are used in most lessons and we are grateful for having different apps to share what we have learned. ‘Socrative’ is used regularly for quizzes to retrieve knowledge learned and ‘Keynote’ is used for interactive activities that the children complete on their iPad.

In year 4, it is extremely important that the children read every night and look up the meaning of new vocabulary to share with the rest of the class. We love learning new vocabulary to use within all of our writing. This year to support the children in finding books that they enjoy we are reading around the world. The recommended reads are from different countries which are displayed on a world map in our classroom. I wonder which setting and culture will be your favourite?
