Year 4

Welcome to Year 4!


Welcome to year 4.....


P.E: In Year 4 our P.E day is  on a Tuesday. Please can children have all P.E kit in school on Monday, we also may do other sessions during the week so P.E kit should be left in school whenever possible.

Forest School: This will take place throughout Spring term. Children need to wear warm clothes, including hats and gloves and coats and have a change of footwear suitable for walking on a muddy field.


Reading: Children should always bring their reading record and reading book to school every day. It is very important to hear your child as much as possible. It develops their language skills and enhances their vocabulary.


Water Bottles: Children can bring water bottles to school so they can have a drink during the day these bottles should only contain water as no juice is allowed. You can purchase a bottle from the office for £1.


Homework: Maths homework will be given to children on a Thursday afternoon this is to be completed and brought back to school by the following Wednesday. The homework will be related to that week's work so it is important children do complete homework to the highest standard which will help them consolidate their learning. Curiculum homework is to be completed over a 10 week period and returned to school by 30th March. Any models may be brought into school earlier and points awarded so that children can take back home the same day.


Spellings: Spellings will be given to children on a Monday and a test will take place on a Friday. Please encourage your children to learn these spellings as they are words they need to know
