Dates for your diary
Class 8 parents and children-
Hi all, hope everyone is well and staying safe!
Children- a big thank you to everyone who is keeping in regular contact and engaging in the resources (both online and paper based) that I am setting for you. It is keeping me going hearing from you! Remember- you have your reading plus/mymaths/ttrs/hit the button/spellings which can be done daily. You also have your journaling task and subject activity pack which can be done whenever the mood takes you! The BBC bitesize website also has daily English, maths and foundation subject tasks for you to complete https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize
Parents- you are doing a great job! The online resources are just as much to support you as the children and remember some days the children might be super focused and motivated to do school work which is great, other days they may not which is totally fine too. Don’t panic! Keep them safe and well until we can be tagged back in! 😊
Best wishes to you all- Miss Black
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.
