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 either of us, please speak to us after school or make an appointment via the school office.
Children will be going swimming every Tuesday this term. 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 and 10 Minute Maths 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 by the Class Teacher and by the 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. As part of our new Accelerated Reader programme, the children should read at home for 20 minutes each day. Please write in your child’s reading record book the pages they have read, and sign to say it’s been done.
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.
