Welcome to Year 4!
This will be an exciting and hardworking year and we have lots to look forward to. We will update you each week with what we have been learning and include lots of photos to show you the activities we have been up to. We have so many exciting things planned for the children including our residential to PGL Liddington and a play during the spring term. We know that they will behave with the maturity and decorum expected and have no doubt that this will be a great year with lots of fun, hard work, success and surprises!
All children are expected to read at least four times a week and this should be recorded in their reading journal. These have changed this year and there is much more room for teacher and parent comments so please do take a look to see how your children are getting on.
Every Tuesday the children will be tested on ten words from their spelling scheme. They will be given these words on paper to practice and these will also be on spelling shed too.
We have a times tables check at the end of year four and we will be using Timestable Rockstars to practice this. We recommend the children practice this at home on both Timestable Rockstars and Doodle Maths.
Swimming lessons start from 19th September and will be every Thursday, these run for the entire term except the first and last week. The children will need a swimming kit including; Towel, Swimming hat, Goggles and Swimming costume or shorts. PE lessons will be on Friday afternoons and children will need an inside and outside kit.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
Miss Cronk and Miss Milnes
