Welcome to Year 4!
Class Teacher: Miss Beattie
Learning Support Assistant: Mrs C Haigh
Welcome to our Year 4 class page where you can keep up to date with all of the fun learning that takes place in our classroom.
If you wish to see Miss Beattie, please make an appointment via the school office.
Year 4 will be going swimming every Tuesday afternoon in the Spring term, starting on the first day back, Tuesday 8th January. Please make sure children have their kit in every week.
Children will be set weekly homework which will build on their learning that takes place inside the classroom.
10 Minute English, 10 Minute Maths and Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling books will be sent home with your child on a Friday and should be completed by the following Wednesday.
In addition to the above homework, children are expected to read daily and practice their spellings and time tables for a test on Friday. Links to the MyMaths and Bug Club websites can be found at the top of our class page, as well as links to fun online games which can be used to learn times tables.
Parental support and involvement is greatly appreciated with regards to the completion of all homework. If you have any questions regarding homework or accessing these websites at home, then please see your child’s class teacher.
In school, all children will be heard reading twice per week by the Class Teacher and once by their class LSA. Children are also provided with lots of opportunities to read for pleasure. It will greatly benefit your child if this love of reading is also encouraged at home by reading daily and discussing the text. Children can also access Bug Club at home where there are a variety of interactive books available to read.
School reading books and reading records should be brought into school every day.
