We hope you have had an enjoyable Summer holiday and are excited about returning to school.
Our first project for this year is ‘What was it like to walk like an Egyptian?’ We will be learning all about the ancient Egyptians.
P.E. for this term will be: 4JW – Monday, 4J – Tuesday, 4HW – Wednesday
Homework will be sent out every Friday and should be returned to class by the following Wednesday. Homework will consist of one piece of maths work, one piece of English work, weekly spellings and regular reading at home.
All pupils are encouraged to use the TT Rockstar App as much as possible; just 10 minutes a day can have an impact on their times table knowledge. If there are any problems with the app or you have misplaced a log-in, please let your class teacher know.
We will be reading with the pupils in school on a 1:1 basis and within teacher led groups. Please continue to read regularly with your child at home as it really does improve their attainment and confidence. As well as decoding words it is really beneficial to ask your child questions on what they have read e.g. To work out the definitions of new vocabulary, discuss why a character did or said something, recall an event and what happened. When you have read with your child at home please record this in their reading record as will starting a class reward system for those children who have read 3 x a week or more at home. Due to current Covid guidelines, Year 4 are only able to change their reading books on a Thursday so they are able to have 2/3 books at a time. The non-fiction school library is not currently in use so please continue to read your own books from home also.
