Welcome to the year 4 page! There is much to look forward to across the next three terms and we aim to keep you updated throughout the year. Please check back regularly for updates and photos.

P.E.

Swimming is starting commencing Monday 11th September 2017 Please could you ensure that children bring the appropriate kit, with each item individually named.

Homework

Each week, children will be set a maths task and an English task. These activities will build on what has been learnt in class and should not take longer than 30 minutes per task. Both of these tasks will be given out on Wednesday and be returned no later than the following Monday. In addition to this, children will receive weekly spelling lists to learn each Monday as well as practising their times tables.

Reading

Children are expected to read for 30 minutes every day. This should be recorded in their home-school diaries. Whilst children are welcome to read independently we recommend that you listen to your child read as often as possible. We also encourage you to ask them questions about what they are reading to aid their understanding and comprehension of texts.

Home-school diaries are checked every Friday and children should bring them to school each day. Dojo points will be awarded for consistent reading throughout the week.

End of the day

All children need to be collected by an adult from outside of the classroom, unless attending an after school club. If your child is being collected by a different adult or going home with another child, please inform us in writing either with a letter or email as we will not let your child go unless we or the office have been notified.

 

We look forward to enjoying an exciting and rewarding year!

Mrs Gunasekera, Mrs Murphy and Mrs Thompson
