The expectation continues this term for the children to read five times independently at home for homework. Please could you continue to sign any reading that has been completed at home. It would be fantastic if you could, whenever possible, discuss what they are reading. For the remainder of the year, we are setting a reading challenge for the children in the hope that they will choose and experience new genres within their independent reading.
We continue on our Harry Potter journey this term and will then link our texts to our topic of Ancient Egypt. Our spelling tests will continue to be weekly in the same format as the Autumn term.
The spring term in Y4 is heavily focused on fractions. A really important part of fractions relies on a solid knowledge of timetables. Please could you continue to encourage your child to practise at home, using Times tables Rockstars wherever possible.
This term we will be looking at Changing State and Digestion.
P.E. and Swimming
P.E kits are required to be in school every day. Kit consists of black shorts, white t-shirt (with or without the school logo) and trainers. For outdoors, in the winter, plain black or grey jogging trousers and fleece top.
We are very fortunate to have access to regular swimming at Trinity, and we feel that it is very important that children take advantage of this resource. It is very important, therefore, that the children remember to bring their swimming kits to every session. If, for any reason, your child is unable to take part in P.E. or swimming, a signed letter must be provided.
A meeting for parents of children attending the residential will be scheduled in the second half term and more information will be sent out about this in due course.
The next payment is due at the beginning of February and there are instalments due through the next few months with the final balance payable by 1st June.
Key information for the term -
Halo - every Wednesday from 22nd January
Wednesday afternoon - outdoor games. Please ensure that trainers and outdoor kit are in school. Girls should also have socks to change into if they are wearing tights.
Homework will be set for Maths and spelling and is due in on a Monday.
