Welcome to Year 4!
Check out the link near the bottom of our page to see what we have been up to.
In Year 4 learning is both challenging and fun where we visit many exciting topics throughout the course of the year. Some topics we will cover this year include Earthquakes and Volcanoes, Rivers, The Roman Invasion and Rainforests.
We have PE in Year 4 on Monday (Swimming) and Thursday and as such I am asking that all children keep a PE kit in school for these sessions with each item of clothing labelled with a name.
Children are encouraged to read daily and receive a stamp on their chart each time they have read at home. Reading books are changed daily as long as their reading record has been signed to say that your child has read. Points will also be collected for our whole school reading challenge in which a class has the chance to win a big mystery prize at the end of the half term. Check out the Reading tab for more information.
Homework is given out every Friday and children have until the following Thursday to complete and return it. Children will be given English and Maths homework in their homework book as well as some spellings to practice and learn over the week. This spelling sheet does not need to be returned to school. Homework is an essential part of learning and builds on what the children have been doing in the classroom.
Alongside reading and homework there are lots of things you can do to help your child wit their learning at home. Some useful websites that your child could visit are listed below:
In Year 4 I have an open door policy and should you have any queries or concerns please feel free to pop in at the end of the day, catch me on the yard, send me a message below or ring to arrange an appointment at a convenient time.
Thank you in advance for all of your support.
