Welcome to our Year 4 pages
Physical Education is a vital part of every child's development. We have PE every week on the following days:
Monday am - Swimming
Friday pm - Games
It is important that children have their full kits on these days so that they can participate in the lessons.
Swimming - Tight swimming shorts/one piece swimsuit, a swimming hat (for the girls) and a towel.
Games - White PE top, plain black shorts/jogging bottoms and trainers
(Gymnastics / Dance - White PE top and plain black shorts)
*All jewelry should be removed before coming into school and long hair will need to be tied back*
We believe (and research proves) that reading is the key to many areas in education and because of this have high expectations for our children. We have an achievable target of reading at home at least 3 times per week and this is closely monitored each day in school.
Attendance - It is vital that your child is in school every day.
The school day starts at 8.50am and the first lesson begins when the children enter the classroom.
School finishes at 3.05pm
Homework - There will be no homework set for Spring 2. We want the children to focus on their reading (3 times per week) and their times tables in preparation for the times tables check at the end of Year 4.
The children are encouraged to practise their times tables using the Times Tables Rockstar website (https://ttrockstars.com/),
Spellings - 10 Spellings will be sent home on a Friday for a spelling test on the following Friday. It is expected that all children learn these spellings to help them with their education.
Spellings will change each week but generally consist of 5 words with spelling patterns we are working on in class and 5 words taken from the year 3/4 common exception words.
In our school, we use 'Class Dojos' to motivate the children in a positive way. This means that the children are able to collect 'Dojos' and exchange them for a range of rewards.
Have you signed up to your class Dojo yet? Stay up to date with your child's work and important dates. If you need any help feel free to ask.
Choose your challenge carefully!
Challenges are set every Friday and are due in the following Friday.
