Welcome to class 8! In year 4 we will be working very hard throughout the year to consolidate all of our previous learning, push ourselves to reach our goals and have lots of fun learning new things! Each morning we will start with register, 'Active in 5' and either meditation or assembly, this will be followed by reading/spellings/times tables/SPAG/handwriting. Our first lesson will usually be English followed by maths after break time. Afternoons will begin with times table practice then topic lessons.
Our days will be jam-packed but full of opportunities for learning, reflecting and developing our lovely squishy brains!
This half term we are studying cricket.
Remember, regular PE kit consists of plain white t-shirt,plain dark shorts/leggings/pants and trainers or plimsolls and it must be taken home weekly to be washed. All earrings need to be covered or taken out for PE lessons.
Our Spring term topics are:
Homework is given out on Thursdays and usually consists of a mymaths task or times tables rockstars and weekly spellings. It must be returned no later than the following Tuesday. On occasion, children may also bring any unfinished work home to complete. Children will have several opportunities between homework being assigned and being due to attend homework club if they wish.
Children are asked to bring reading books into school every day. Children who bring in reading books everyday will have more opportunities to read in school and change their books. We also ask that as parents, you encourage daily reading at home with your children. Lunchtime clubs and weekly helpers will also be organised to provide extra reading opportunities and to encourage a positive attitude towards reading. In year 4 every child is read with at least twice, with Reading Champs providing extra opportunities for reading.
