Welcome to year 4! I hope you all had a great summer and are ready to start the new school year.
We have many exciting topics to learn throughout this year.
Here is some useful information to help keep you organised this half term:
PE -this is currently on a Monday and swimming on Tuesday.
On Monday, children are to wear black or grey jogging bottoms, black trainers, a polo shirt and school jumper/cardigan.
On Tuesday, please can your child bring in a bag: one-piece swimming costume/shorts above the knee, a towel and a swim hat for children with long hair or fringes.
We want our children to be happy at school and ready for learning.
Please help them with the following:
READING-all children have a take-home reader to practice and improve their reading fluency.
Please encourage your child to spend 5-10 minutes, a few times a week, reading their home reading book. Please record any reading that has taken place at home in their reading record. You can help by questioning them about what they have read, including talking about the characters, making predictions about what might happen next and asking the children to recall specific information. Once a child has finished their book, it can be placed in our reading basket in the classroom to be changed.
HOMEWORK and Spellings
Please scroll down to find the Homework Grid
- Each week we have a different spelling focus, which can befound in their homework book and is fully accessible on Spelling Shed.
