Throughout the year we will use this page to keep Year 4 children and adults up to date with our fantastic learning, photos and other important information.
We have two classes in Year 4 this year:
4T - Mrs Thomas
4I - Miss Ilyas
We are also very lucky to have additional support in class by Mrs Begum, Miss Cajkova and Mrs Matloob.
If you have any questions or concerns, please get in contact via the school office.
A Typical Day in Year 4
In school we have started to practice Makaton signing for the Christmas carol 'It was a starry night'. Although we are missing hearing each other sing, we have really enjoyed learning a new way to communicate and keep the Christmas spirit going! Below is the link to the Christmas carol with Makaton which you can use to carry on practicing at home.
It was on a Starry Night
This term our PE days are Monday and Thursday.
On these days the children will need to come into school wearing their PE kit. Please note: On the weeks we have Forest School (dates listed below) the children will not need to wear their PE kit on Monday.
PE Kit: White t-shirt/ school PE shirt or house shirt; dark shorts; dark joggers and sweatshirt; trainers.
Please make sure all PE kit (as well as regular uniform) is labelled with your child's name.
Our Forest School session will take place every other week on Wednesday.
On the date below children will be expected to come into school in appropriate clothing and trainers that they can get muddy. Our next session will be Wednesday 25th November 2020.
To make sure the children stay hydrated, please remember to bring in a clearly named water bottle. Children may have a snack at break time. If snacks are bought in, please make they are only fresh fruit or vegetables.
There are two pieces of homework set each week - Maths and English/Topic related.
All homework is set on Friday and is expected back by the following Wednesday.
Please look down below to find the weekly homework.
"There are many ways to enlarge your child's world, love of books is the best of all" - Jacqueline Kennedy.
We would like you to encourage your child to read at home every day.
Please ensure that your child has a current book, appropriate to their level and understanding, with them each day. This could be a book from home or school. In Year 4, reading record logs are no longer used.
If you have any library books or school reading books at home, please could the children bring them into school.
In Year 4, we would like all children to enjoy our interesting and engaging Reading Eggs programme; both at home and in school. We would like to encourage all children to extend their learning by enjoying 35 minutes of Reading Eggs each week, including a reading lesson. Children can either complete 'Lessons' - which focus on comprehension - or by entering 'The Stadium' where they can practise their spelling, punctuation and grammar. There are also lots of books available to read in the 'Library'. From time to time, we will set specific tasks which tie in with our learning that week.
