Welcome to Year 4.
During this year we hope your child settles in well and continues to work hard to achieve their full potential. In Year 4 this term we are very fortunate to have Mrs Nagington. Also Mrs. Mensforth will be teaching P.E once a week and Mrs Climpson will be teaching R.E.
Spellings are given out weekly on Friday to be learnt for a test every Thursday. Please check your child’s homework book and help them learn using the look, say, cover, write and check method. Again, please check homework tasks to see which table is being tested that week. Children are heard to read on a weekly basis through their guided reading sessions unless individual support is needed.
After half term our topic will be ‘Hunted’ we will study animals and their habitat.
In R.E. Mrs. Mensforth will be teaching the class about the faiths of Hinduism, Islam, Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism and Sikhism as well as handwriting and P.S.H.E.
We have found many websites to help us access the curriculum which you can use at home. I strongly recommend that your child logs on to times table rockstars regularly (they each have a personal log in).
Please remember that P.E. kits are needed every Monday and swimming kits are needed on Tuesday. Not forgetting kits on the days your child takes part in after-school clubs.
Homework tasks will be set on a Friday and need to be returned to school by Thursday. These will include a variety of subjects and skills and may involve using a computer or reference books. If your child is unsure about any task, please come and see us, we don’t want anyone worrying unnecessarily. Please remember the homework is designed to be completed at your child’s own level and is open ended.
Thank you for your continuing support.
Miss L Howarth, Mrs Nagington.
