Welcome to Year 4
Hello everyone and welcome to the Year 4 section of our school website. We know this academic year has been a strange one for all of you and many changes have been made, but we hope you all enjoy the last term in Year 4. Below, you will find some key information about this summer term.
4AR Class teacher- Mrs Randall: amrandall@Bestacademies.org.uk
4GK Class teacher - Mrs Kiely: email@example.com
PE Lessons – Please ensure your child has a full PE kit in school. PE kits should be brought in at the beginning of the Half Term and left in school. A list of the full PE kit can be found on the website under Parents > School Uniform.
4AR PE days - Monday and Friday afternoon.
4GK PE days -Tuesday and Friday afternoon.
Music Lessons - Our Ukelele lessons will take place in a Thursday morning. If your child has been given permission to take their ukulele home, please ensure this comes back into school in time for their lesson on Thursday.
Water bottles- Please ensure your child is bringing in a named water bottle every day.
Reading Books - Reading books and records should be brought to school daily. We encourage children to read every day to support the development of their reading fluency and exposure to rich vocabulary. Please ensure that once they have read a part of a book or whole book, a comment is written in their reading record and signed so we know if it has been read.
Homework will be set every Friday and due the following Wednesday.
Reading comprehension - This will be set on a weekly basis using the CGP books provided. Children will be advised which pages they are expected to complete.
Maths - This will be set on a weekly basis. Maths tasks will be set on MyMaths and the children will be advised which tasks they are expected to complete.
Spellings - Spellings are given out on a Monday and the children will be tested on these on the Friday.
In the event of a school, bubble closure or self-isolation, we will set the children work on Microsoft Teams as soon as possible. This will include powerpoints, any resources needed and instructions on how they can complete any tasks using other sites like PurpleMash, MyMaths and TT Rockstars. Children will be notified of the tasks to complete via the school website and Microsoft Teams. All children have been provided with the login details necessary to access these websites, however if you do need a reminder or any support with using them, please feel free to email your child's class teacher on the above email addresses and we will be happy to help.
Our learning for this half term:
Our key text for this half term is: Escape from Pompeii by Christina Balit . This wonderful book links in really well with our history topic on 'The Romans'.
