Welcome to Year 4.
We hope that you have had a wonderful summer holidays and that you are looking forward to the start of your Year 4 journey.
The expectation still continues in Year 4 for the children to read five times independently at home for homework. We are very excited about the new books that we have in each year group and hope that the children will enjoy reading them. Books can be changed on a Monday, Thursday and Friday.
Please could you sign any reading that has been completed and help to ensure that your child's Reading Record is in school on a Friday. House points and a raffle ticket for the termly reading raffle will be awarded for five or more signatures.
During the first half term, we will be reading Harry Potter and the Philosopher's stone. We will be kicking off the topic with a magical themed day on Wednesday 8th September. You should have received an email about this. If not, then please contact your child's teacher.
There is a huge emphasis on times tables in Year 4. By the end of this year, is it expected that children can recall all multiplication facts up to 12 x 12. The children are formally assessed on their times tables in June, in line with the National Multiplication Tables Check. Please encourage your child to practise their tables as often as possible, both mentally and using their TT Rockstars log in. Please contact the class teacher if you need a reminder of the password for this.
PE and Swimming
All children in Year 4 will have PE on Wednesday afternoons. Please wear PE kit to school on that day. Please ensure that all earrings are either removed before coming to school or can be removed/taped up independently (with tape from home) for the duration of the lesson.
P.E. kit consists of plain black shorts or joggers, a plain black sweatshirt/hoody and plain white t-shirt (with or without the school logo) and trainers.
4B are swimming on Thursday mornings until October half term. Please ensure they come to school in their uniform with their swimming kit. During the first Autumn half term, 4PO and 4G will need to come into school in their PE kit on Thursdays as they will be doing dance as part of their PPA morning.
In the event of self isolation, please navigate to the Remote Learning tab on the home page to find a weekly timetable of activities and links.
