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:
Asters - Mrs Dearman
Lavenders - Mrs Ilyas
We are also very lucky to have additional support in class by Miss Bell, Mrs Ditchburn and Mr Stammers
If you have any questions or concerns, please get in contact via the school office.
Please use the links below to practice the Christmas songs we will be singing in our performance.
A Typical Day in Year 4
Our cloakrooms are very small, therefore we ask that the children do not bring large bags into school, unless there is a specific reason for having one (after school sports club etc). Please make sure all belongings are named.
This term our PE days are Thursday (Game On) and Friday (alternate weeks with Forest School)
On these days, the children will need to come into school wearing their PE kit.
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.
This term we will be going to forest school every other Wednesday - the week we have PE on Friday we will not be going to Forest School on Wednesday.
Your child will need to wear normal jumpers / polo shirts and appropriate leg covering e.g. leggings or jogging bottoms. They must have a change of footwear that can get dirty - old trainers or wellies are ideal.
Forest school dates for Autumn 2: 1.11.23 -15.11.23 - 29.11.23 - 13.12.23
To make sure the children stay hydrated, please remember to bring in a clearly named water bottle. Please remember that only water is permitted in these. Children may have a snack at break time. If snacks are bought in, please make they are only fresh fruit or vegetables.
Your child will have a choice from 9 different activities, of which they are to complete 5, over a 5 week period. The * indicates tasks that must be undertaken. Any completed work needs to be returned to school by Wednesday to each week, books will be sent home on Fridays.
Please look down below to find the home learning grid.
"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. Please note, in Year 4, reading record logs are no longer used.
If you have any outstanding library books or school reading books at home, please could they be returned to school.
Here is a link to the recommended Year 4 reading list which is regularly updated. It also has 'book match' lists so if your child likes a particular author, it has suggestions which are similar.
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.
