4C 2022 - 2023

Mrs Collins

Welcome to our Class Page. I am Mrs Collins and I teach the class four days a week with Mrs Lambert teaching on a Wednesday. We also have Mrs Lund, our wonderful Teaching Assistant, supporting the children. 

This term we are learning about Europe and how there are contrasting countries in terms of geography. For instance, the landscape of France differs from Norway. We will learn about the rivers and mountains in Europe and study France in more detail. In Science, our topic is about Living Things.


In English, we will be writing travel brochures to help improve our persuasive writing. Our aim will be to build better sentences, ensuring accurate punctuation, sentences that make sense and trying to avoid mundane words and sentences. In Year 4, we would like the children to use Fronted Adverbials (such as Early one morning, ), Expanded noun phrases (the wild, black cat with a piercing green eyes) and subordinate clauses. Children will be asked to edit their work to keep improving it. Through this we will also continue teaching children grammatical terms inlcuding nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs.

We will try to read with every child whenever we can but we ask for the parents to be reading with their children as much as they can at home. It really makes a difference to their progress so we are encouraging this with reading raffle tickets. There are documents on the class page to support with the reading and spelling of your child. There will be several reading lessons a week. Spellings are taught solely in school now so spelling lists will not be sent home. However, the Year 1/2 words and Year 3/4 words are on the webpage to support the children.


Over the course of the term, we will be continuing our work on multiplication and division. The children now need to understand what factors are and recognise that when we multiply by 10, a number becomes 10 times bigger. The will also be taught compact multiplication to help them multiply larger numbers.

Every Friday the children will be completing their X-Factor Maths, which focuses on fluency in times tables and arithmetic. In June, Year 4 children must complete a times tables test to check they know all their tables from 1-12x. We have TTRockstars for children to use at home. There is also the White Rose 1 minute maths app which revises lots of key skills to build number sense and fluency.

I will keep you updated with PE days as they change but it will be every Friday morning this term so children need to come in wearing their kit - plain black trousers, plain white t-shirt and their school jumper.

If you have any questions or concerns please contact us on Class Dojo or use the lks2@etchells.stockport.sch.uk email address and I will get back to you.


Many thanks

Mrs Collins
