Welcome to your one stop shop for important information regarding Year 4! If you have any questions or queries, please feel free to catch us in the playground before or after school, send a note in with your child, or make an appointment to see us via Mrs Tothill in the school office.
Your child has been given a colour banded school reading book, which they should be reading at home on a daily basis. Even 5/10 minutes a day can make all the difference in your child's reading progress. Please make sure you record when you read with your child at home and what page number they have reached in their red reading diaries. When their book needs changing it is the child's responsibility to put it in the book box in class, and it will be changed and discussed with Mrs Jarvis/Miss Curtis that day.
Every Tuesday new spellings will be given out for a test the following Tuesday. These will follow spelling patterns. Please make sure your child brings their blue spelling books into school on this day.
It is incredibly important that your child practices their times tables regularly at home. We will be looking at x4, x6, x7, x8, x9 tables in class, but will recap the x2, x3, x5, 10 regularly. At home try quick bursts whilst travelling too and from school, interactive times tables games on the web and mini challenges to keep their brains ticking!
Homework is given out on Thursday to be handed in the following Tuesday, giving the children ample time to complete the Literacy and Numeracy pieces. (Don't forget they can attend homework club after school on a Monday if time at home is an issue). An instruction sheet will be stuck into their pink book explaining the tasks and expectations.
Our normal PE days are Tuesday and Friday (When swimming is not taking place) Please make sure that your child has PE kit (white tshirt, white shorts, plimsolls/trainers) in school during the whole week as we will make the most of any nice weather or outdoor opportunities.
Mrs Jarvis' PPA time is on a Thursday afternoon. This will be covered by Mrs Plant, who will be looking at cultural investigations - starting with China.
