year four

Welcome back to the spring term in Year Four! 

I hope you have all had a festive Christmas break!

I am excited to get started on our new topic for the spring term! I am confident that the children are going to enjoy every minute of our brand new learning journey which we have already begun to delve into this week . We have a very busy term ahead of us with lots of exciting opportunities and fun-filled activities! Please read on to find further information about our topic as well as the general routines in Year Four.

For this term, Mrs Tomlinson will be teaching Year 4 every Thursday.

If you require any further information then please feel free to pop in and see me or write a note in the message book.

Homework

Children in Year 4 receive the following homework:

English (on a weekly rotation)

Mathematics (on a weekly rotation)

Spellings (on a weekly basis)

Learning Log (on a half term basis)

Times Tables - please work with your child on learning their times tables. We focus on a different one from the 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, and 12 every two weeks.

All homework should be handed  in on time unless otherwise agreed with the class teacher.

P.E

The children have two P.E sessions each week; one on a Monday afternoon and one on a Wednesday monring. We recommend kits are brought in a Monday and taken home on a Friday.

Children should have both an indoor and outdoor kit in case of inclement weather during the colder months.

Girls with long hair should tie it back and all jewellery, including earings, must be removed for P.E.

Any child who does not have a suitable P.E kit may be asked to complete alternate work.

Reading

Children receive one guided reading session with the teacher every week. Aside of this, they have follow up sessions which are linked to their text. They will also have the opportunity to participate in SPaG (spelling, punctuation and grammar) activities during guided reading sessions. I will endeavour to read with your child during any quiet reading time throughout the day but I cannot stress the importance of your child reading at home with you as much as possible.

Outside of school, we ask that children are read with 3 times a week. If you would like any extra support in how to get the most out of reading with your child, please do not hesitate to come and speak to me.
