Year 4

Welcome to a new term - Summer Term 1


This Term

This term's topic is Geography and we will be focusing on the continent of Africa.  In Art, children will be looking at different types of prints.  Science will involve studying animals - food chains and digestion.  In Literacy, we will look at stories from other cultures.


My Expectations

Weekly homework:

Homework and spellings are handed out every Friday via Google Classroom.  Times tables are also posted on Google Classroom every Friday.  I expect all homework to be completed and handed in every Wednesday.  All children will have a spelling and times tables test every Friday.  It is extremely important that children are practising their spellings and times tables as this is a big focus for this academic year.


Reading at home:

Children are expected to read every day.  This half term, as a class, we will be reading the book 'The Unadoptables' alongside 'The Village that Vanished', and 'Fly Eagle, Fly'.  Reading Buddies is an excellent resource to support your child's reading comprehension skills.  Children's reading records should be signed every day by a parent / carer and should be brought in to school every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.



Monday is our PE day.  Children will have the opportunity to get changed during school time.  It is very important to ensure children are changing completely for PE to promote good personal hygiene.  The school PE kit remains unchanged - a white t-shirt and black bottoms.  This term, every Wednesday, children have swimming lessons.  All children must bring a swimming kit to school.  They will each need a swimming hat, towel, cream and a change of underwear.  



School uniform is a red school jumper with a white or red shirt underneath (children can also wear a red school fleece).  Bottoms should be grey trousers or skirts - NOT tracksuit bottoms or leggings.  Shoes should be ALL black.


Soft Start

We have a 'soft-start' during the week (Tuesday - Friday 8:45am).  Please encourage your child to attend this as it is an excellent opportunity to address misconceptions which might arise from the previous day's learning and it also ensures that class starts promptly at 9am.  If you have any questions regarding this or any aspect of your child's learning or welfare, please make an appointment to meet with me.


Kind regards,

Miss Kalusi
