Year 4

Welcome back Year 4 

September 2021

We hope you had a lovely half term.

 

A big, warm welcome to everyone from Mr McCabe, Mrs Machin, Mrs Sethi, Mrs Jones and Miss Schofield!

 

Below is a presentation for Year 4 parents, carers and pupils. It provides information about the staff; our topics; our daily timetable; our expectations and our rewards. :-)  

 

We have also uploaded our long term planning for the year. This maps out our curriculum coverage and is used by teachers to plan units of learning. A copy of our weekly timetable has been uploaded so you can see which lessons we will be enjoying each day. We have uploaded a document intended to help parents and carers ensure their children are fluent, confident readers who love books!

 

Below this, there are some useful learning websites which will help children with their number work, telling the time and reading. 

 

 

Here is some key information about Year 4:

 

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. We keep it simple and manageable.  

 

PE:

PE will take place on  Monday. 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.
