Welcome to Year 4!

We have put together some links to online resources that can support children learning at home.
We would ask that Parents consider how to keep children safe when they are online. NSPCC has some fantastic guidance available here: . We would recommend setting parental controls on any devices and keep an eye on your child's history.
Reading for pleasure
We have produced some suggested reading lists for each year group which might be helpful to provide high quality texts at home for your child.

A very warm welcome to Year 4 from Mr Langford, Mrs Burdass, Miss Broderick, Mr Wilson, Mrs Turner and Miss Locke! This year, our teaching assistants are Miss Wint, Mr Priestley, Miss Dawson and Miss Pearson.
Children in year 4 will be taught English and Maths in their year groups.
The five year 4 teachers are Miss Broderick, Mrs Burdass, Miss Locke, Mr Langford and Mr Wilson.
Year 4 is an amazing time for everyone as the journey through KS2 begins and the children really develop their skills for independent learning. Throughout this year the children will be exploring a variety of exciting and engaging cross-curricular topics including: The Vikings, The Mayans, Our Continent and Healthy Me.
All of our topic work is centred around a book. Our Autumn book is How To Train Your Dragon.
All of the topics 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 P.E days are:
Class 3: Wednesday and Thursday
Class 4: Monday and Thursday
Class 5: Monday and Thursday
Class 6: Tuesday and Friday
Class 7: Tuesday and Thursday
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.
Autumn overall attendance
5R'S and SEAL

Spelling tests happen weekly on a Monday morning. Your child will perform their spelling test with their English teacher. Their weekly score is placed in their school diary, along with their new spellings.
Within the week, the children will practise their spelling pattern at least twice a week.
Their spelling list will also be posted onto ClassDojo.
Support your child with their behaviour at Broomhill Junior School by signing up to Class Dojo.
The staff at Broomhill will use ClassDojo to communicate with you. By using the app, teachers can provide your child with positive points for a variety of reasons. It also allows teachers to instantly share messages, updates and photos from the class.
You will need to receive a code from your class teacher to see all the benefits.
At Broomhill we are proud of the hard work our children put into their work. Have a look at some of our classroom displays. I am sure you will agree that they look fantastic!
