Welcome to year 4!
Mrs Tighe, Mrs Steward and Mrs Norman-Ball warmly welcome you to year 4.
Below is some useful class information:
Your child will have a reading book and diary sent home with them. These should be brought into school each day as they will be read with throughout the week. Please encourage your child to read at home. We would really appreciate it if you could encourage your child to read for 20 minutes, at least 3 times a week. We have recently started a 'reading map' in class, the more your child reads at home, the further they will travel around the world!
These will be sent home in a blue spelling book. The spellings are matched to the year 3/4 spelling list and are taught in patterns of words. This will be tested and changed every Thursday. Handwriting homework is linked to these spellings.
Homework will be sent home in a pink homework book every other Friday. Your child then has 10 days to complete the homework. Maths will be set from the MyMaths website. Your child's login details are stuck into their homework book, but please let us know if you have any problems logging in. Homework will be due in every other Wednesday. There will also be weekly Beat that, SAFE and Learn-it challenges sent home for your child to practise. Please support them in th
PE kit should be in school every day. PE kit should consist of T-shirt and shorts, tracksuits can be worn during cold weather, and plimsolls or trainers should be easy to run in. Please could all kit be labelled clearly.
Finally, we are looking forward to a fun-filled and packed school year! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
Mrs Tighe, Mrs Steward and Mrs Norman-Ball
