Dear Parents/ Carers,
I hope you have all had an enjoyable Summer break with your children. Please see below for some important information regarding Y4 for this half term.
year 4 Curriculum
Please download our termly curriculum documents here for more information about what we will are learning and to see examples of our work.
The children will need their PE kit in school all week. The PE kit should include black shorts, white t-shirt and pumps or appropriate trainers. As the weather is very cold, you may supply joggers and a jumper also.
Monday: Outdoor PE
Library Day- Thursday
Each child will be heard reading each week, we expect reading books to be in school every day so this is possible. The children also have sessions where they read other texts as a class and in partners. Their progress and understanding will be greatly improved if you hear them read for 10 minutes each day and discuss what they have read with them.
It is important that the children not only read the words, but understand the meaning of the words. Please complete their reading journal to reflect the practise being done at home. Please note: We do not have a designated day for changing books. The children can change their school reading book once an adult has signed their reading record to show that the book has been completed.
The school council were involved in choosing healthy items to include on the menu. Children should bring their money in a purse or wallet, with their name on, and keep it in their locker until needed. We suggest that £1 a week is enough per child, splitting it up into 20p a day.
From the start, we encourage all children to be responsible for securing their own belongings in their locker and their tuck shop money into the classroom on their own, as it fosters their independence. We are sure you will help us in this by encouraging the children to become more independent and responsible.
The children will be given homework each week on a Friday to be returned by the Wednesday of the following week. The homework will be used to consolidate the children’s knowledge of what has been covered in class or prepare for further learning. The homework will usually consist of a Maths and English task and a weekly spelling list. Occasionally, the children maybe asked to find out information for a Science, History or Geography topic. It is very important that the children complete these homework tasks to the best of their ability. If they are having difficulty, please ask them to inform me and I will be happy to explain it again. If homework is not completed there is the consequence of missing break times the following day until it is completed.
Class Dojo is a new way for teachers to encourage students and contact parents about their child's progress in class. It can be used online or downloaded as an app on iOS and Android devices. Please ask if you require a copy of your log in.
If you have any queries, please don't hesitate to ask or send a message on Dojo.
