Welcome to Year 4. We hope that you have had a restful summer and that you are looking forward to the exciting things that we have planned during this first term.
The expectation continues in Year 4 for the children to read five times independently at home for homework. Please could you sign any reading that has been completed at home. Reading Records will be collected and viewed in school on Fridays. It would be fantastic if you could, whenever possible, discuss what your child is reading.
During this first term, we will be taking a visit to the magical school of Hogwarts as we meet Harry Potter and his friends. This year, spelling will be following the Spelling Shed programme. Look out for more information about this in September.
At the beginning of the year, we shall be looking carefully at place value before moving on to consolidating our understanding of the four rules of calculation. Times tables are also an important focus in Year 4 as pupils will be taking the national multiplication times tables check in June '21. Please encourage your child to practise their tables as often as possible, both mentally and using their TT Rockstars log in. Please contact their class teacher if you need a reminder of the password for this.
This term we will be looking at electricity.
History and Geography
We will be focusing on the Ancient Romans and volcanoes during the autumn term.
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.
Key information for the term -
Tuesday 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.
Please ensure that these are in school every day and that all entries from home are signed by Friday morning.
