Year 4

I am thrilled to be keeping these delightful children for the new school year.

The new term is well underway, and I am really impressed with the children’s mature approach to work and school life. Well done. We are continuing to push forward and achieve great things!
I would like to remind everyone of my expectations and routines- so that we can help Year4 to be the best that they can be!


Reading
Children are expected to read to an adult at home 5 times a week for ten minutes each time. They need an adult to sign their home school diary each time in order to collect their reading tokens, and to be ticked off on the homework sheet. The week runs from Friday to Thursday in preparation for the Rewards Assembly on a Friday morning.


PE
PE is on Monday and Wednesday afternoons in the Spring Term this Year; PE kit must be in school on Monday and stay in school all week.



We recently tried our hands at fencing! Great fun and very energetic!


Swimming Lessons
Year 4 will begin swimming on TUESDAY 23rd January in the afternoon. Your child will have been notified if he or she is swimming. Please make sure your child has a costume and a towel with them on swimming days. If you would like your child to wear goggles please inform the office and you will need to sign a ‘Goggle Waiver’ form.

Forest School
Forest School will be on a Thursday afternoon. I will be taking the children to for the second half of each term. Please make sure your child has suitable weather appropriate clothing, to cover arms and legs, as well as wellingtons.

Musical Instruments
The clarinet has been an amazing instrument for the children to play. They have made so much progress in just one term. Please continue to practise at home as it makes a big difference. I know it must be hard to deal with the noise at times! I am looking forward to their concert in the summer term

What can parents do?
The most important thing that parents and carers can do at home to support their child’s learning is regular reading followed by discussion about the book. Alongside this, in Year 4, building their confidence with the tables up to 12 will provide them will an excellent foundation for their mathematical development. There are lots of excellent activities and games on the Education City website. Encouraging your child to play these games will make a real difference; each child will soon have their password and username on the inside of their home school diary.

General Reminders

School supports the ‘Healthy Schools Government initiative’ and would ask that children bring in healthy snacks for playtime, fruit is preferable.
Pencil cases are provided; children do not need their own. All pencils, crayons felt tips and other equipment are provided by school.
Please label PE kit, school bags and school uniform. It is extremely difficult to reunite an item of uniform with its owner if there is no name to be seen.

Homework
Homework is due in on Monday morning. It will vary between weekly tasks and longer creative work. The children will have 2/3 weeks for creative homework. If homework is not completed or the children have not read at home during the week they will attend homework sessions run during Tuesday and Thursday playtimes (supervised by a teacher) to support them in completing work set outside the classroom.
Spellings and tables will be given out every Friday and children will be tested the following Friday. Feel free to practise in the homework book and use Education city to increase motivation.
Don’t hesitate to get in touch if there is anything you feel you would like to ask or discuss.
