Year 4

Welcome to Year 4!

Respect   Relationships    Reflective    Responsible

 

A very warm welcome to Year 4 from Mrs Plaskitt, Miss Monaghan, Mr Aherne and Mr Priestley!

 

In Year 4 children are given the opportunity to build on their successes from their time in Year 3. Throughout Year 4, the children will be exploring a variety of exciting and engaging cross-curricular topics including; Ancient Egypt, Africa and The Anglo Saxons.

 

Throughout the year we will cover weekly SEAL lessons, which will focus on our 4 Rs. Our current SEAL topic is Good to be me. Our 4R this term is Reflectiveness.

 

All of the topics will have a Creative Homework Project linked to them, which will give the children the opportunity to showcase their talents, strengths and interests. This will be given to children at the start of each half term.

 

Could we please ask that you ensure PE kits are kept in school all week. Our PE days are  Wednesday and Friday; where children will have one session with Corporal Butcher and one session of Football but there are often extra PE opportunities throughout the week.

 

 

Homework expectations:

  • We expect children to read as much as possible. Children in year 4 should be reading daily.
  • By the end of year 4, children should know all of their times tables. We recommend that children practise these as much as possible. We test times tables weekly in school… practise makes perfect!
  • Children are given a spelling test weekly, so we expect children to practise their spellings at home. We have one practice session in school to help children with this.
  • In addition to this, we will often give children English or maths related homework on a Friday. This is always due in on the following Friday. 

We believe, all children should have a love for reading and we actively promote this in school. If you aren't enjoying a book- it's the wrong book for you! Find one you fall in love with and can't put down!

Attendance:

The more children are in school, the more they are learning. Our aim is to have children in school as much as possible. Ideally, we are aiming for at least 97% attendance.

 

Congratulations to Class 4 who have won the attendance cup for 2 weeks in a row!
