Welcome to Year 4 - Pankhurst

Welcome to Pankhurst class. Emmeline Pankhurst was a political activist and leader of the suffragette movement who helped women win the right to vote.

In Pankhurst class, we are; Miss Froggatt (class teacher Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays), Mrs Russell (class teacher-Wednesdays and Thursdays), Miss Hedges and Miss Whistler (Teaching Assistants).

Our Quest this term is called:

Bright Sparks

We will be exploring electricity in science and carrying out some investigations in class. We have already got off to a great start learning about the key elements of building an electrical circuit!

Superstar readers

In year 4, we expect the children to read every day. It’s vital that the children read regularly so that they can access all areas of their learning and make fantastic progress. You can earn a raffle ticket for every 3 reads recorded in your reading diary and raffle tickets mean prizes!

Times tables

Children will be tested on their times tables up to 12 throughout the Autumn Term. However, it is vital children know them by heart as they will be completing Bronze, Silver and Gold times table challenges in school. Children can only move onto the next challenge when they have got 100% in the previous one.

Your child should know and be able to use the commutative method. E.g. 2x4=8 in the 4x table and 4x2=8 in the 4x table.
