Each child is given a reading book on a Monday. We change books routinely on the Thursday of that same week. We would like the children to read each night, but our expectation is that the children read at least three times per week. Please remember to write and date their reading record book. The children will also have our class author books (Cressida Cowell) to read at home, whereby when they have read the book, they will write their own book review to share their enjoyment, reflections and recommendations with the rest of the class. Every Wednesday, our children enjoy a trip to our school library. Whilst they are there they can choose a book to read for enjoyment. Please ensure that your child’s book bag, reading book and reading record are sent to school every day.
As well as reading at home each day, the Year 4 children are given spellings every Monday to be returned on Friday. Homework tasks are given out Fridays and returned completed by the following Wednesday. If the task is a written activity, we ask the children to write in pencil and add the date. We take great pride in our work and the children love being rewarded for lovely presentation. Please always write in pencil.
After School Clubs
Year 4 after school club is currently, Multi-sports club on Tuesday after school. This club finishes promptly at 4:15pm.
Please keep in touch…
We know that children learn everywhere, all of the time. We would love to hear about what the children have been learning at home. If your child has achieved something outside of school we would love to hear about your child’s achievement. Children are encouraged to bring in photographs, medals, or anything of interest so that they can tell their classmates all about it!
P.E. is on a Tuesday afternoon and the children will require appropriate footwear in their PE bag at all times. The school will provide a PE kit for your child. If your child has their ears pierced they will need to be removed by your child, as teachers cannot support your child with this. Can we ask for all uniform, including coats, shoes and outer clothing to be clearly named.
