Dear Parents and Carers,
Welcome back to Spring Term 2 for Year 4!
Our History topic this half term is The Tudors. In Science, we are learning about electricity. Our Literacy and Guided Reading focus is on informational texts and in Maths, we are looking at Place Value. We will occasionally send home research projects for the children to work on - please support your child the best you can with these. We are also continuing with Mathletics and Reading Express. Please encourage your child to use these programmes daily.
Our PE days are Tuesday (pm) and Wednesday (am), children should come to school wearing their PE kit and bring their school uniform to change back in to. It is very important to ensure that the children are changing completely for PE to promote good personal hygiene. The PE kit remains the same, a white t-shirt, black bottoms and black trainers.
This is a red school jumper or school fleece with a white or red shirt underneath. Bottoms should be grey trousers or skirts - NOT tracksuit bottoms or leggings. Shoes should be black.
Reading records need to be filled in daily with a comment from the child about what they have read and new words that they have learnt. Parents do not need to sign the records as this is something that your child should take responsibility for. However, please check that your child is doing this properly. Homework is handed out each Friday and should be returned to school / submitted on Google Classroom on Wednesdays. Weekly spellings and times tables are given out on Thursday and children will be tested the following week on Thursday.
Will will have a 'soft-start' from 8:45am Tuesday - Friday. Please facilitate your child to attend the 'soft start' on time as it is a chance to address misconceptions and respond to feedback from the day before and ensures that we start lessons promptly at 9am.
If you have any questions regarding the curriculum or any aspect of your child's learning or welfare, please make an appointment to see one of the Year 4 team.
Thank you for continued support.
