Welcome to Year 4!

 

4DM: Mr McCabe & Mrs Reville

4FL: Miss Lewis & Miss Ruderham

 

We hope that you have had a lovely summer and that you are ready for lots of new learning this term. 

 

This term, our topic will be Ancient Egypt and we are very fortunate to have an artist coming into school to work with the children to create some canopic jars. There is also a trip planned for Friday 27th September where the children will watch 'Horrible Histories - Awful Egyptians' at the Palace Theatre, Manchester - letters will be sent out soon after the children return to school. 

 

Swimming

 

Year 4 also sees the children attend swimming for the first time. All children must attend as this is a requirement under the National Curriculum. Swimming lessons for the children will take place on Mondays and each child must bring their own swimming kit into school in a separate bag - please do not send swimming kits in your child's school bag. Any child who does not have a swim kit with them on the day, will not be able to borrow a kit and they must remain at school. The letter outlining all of the details with regards to appropriate swimwear can be found at the bottom of this page. 

 

Homework

 

Homework will be given out on a Friday and will be due in the following Wednesday. This will usually consist of two pieces of written work as well as reading homework which consists of a minimum of three reads per week, ideally for 15 minutes with an adult on hand to ask questions. 

 

PE

 

PE will take place on Mondays and Fridays. Please ensure that your child has a full kit (white t-shirt, blue or black shorts and black pumps/trainers) with them so that they can make the most of each of the sessions. PE kits will be sent home at the end of each half term to be washed. 

 

If you have any questions, please feel free to speak to member of the Year 4 team at the end of the school day, or if it is something that you wish to discuss in private, you can arrange a meeting at the school office.
