Welcome to Year 4
Class teacher: Mrs A Barnett Class teacher: Miss L Kemp
Teaching Assistant: Miss A Flack. Teaching Assistant: Mrs AThomas
Reading: We ask children to read at home at least three times a week. As they are now Year 4 we expect them to write a small comment in their reading diary, sharing some of the things they have learned about the book. This needs to be initialed by an adult. We change books when needed and ask that all reading diaries are brought to school every day.
Homework: Year 4 homework is set and sent home on a Friday. This needs to be completed and handed in on the following Wednesday. The homework consists of 15 spellings made up of the Year 3/4 common exception words from the national curriculum and some words that are frequently misspelled; handwriting practice to accompany the spellings and an English or Maths task.
P.E: Year 4 have P.E sessions on a Tuesday morning. This is taught by
qualified sports coaches and is split into two sessions. One session in
the hall which can be dance or gymnastics and a session outside learning
many different sports and invasion games. We ask that
P.E kits are left in school for the term as there are times when
we may have an additional P.E session or a change to the
timetabling of the P.E session.
Contacting your child’s teacher: If you feel you need to talk to your child’s teacher please come to the classroom door at the end of the day. If the timing is not convenient please do not hesititate to contact the office to make an appointment.
