  • Welcome back to another new school term! It is great to see everyone back and ready to learn and  you will soon see them flourish and grow in confidence.  Each day, your child will e learning something new; whether it be number facts, vocabulary or developing their knowledge of the world around them. They will be working hard while having lots of fun and I am looking forward to see what the new term will bring. I hope your child is enthusiastic to grow and learn too!

    Can we please remind you that in order for your children to reach their true potential,  it is essential that they have a water bottle in school at all times. Their brains are 75% water so it is important that they can access a drink of water throughout the school day. Unfortunately, there is limited capacity within school to provide children with cups etc, but water bottles are on sale at the finance office for £1.50. Alternatively, a clear plastic bottle, clearly labelled with your child’s name, would be sufficient. We thank you for your continued cooperation.

      In our clas20170210_095042s w20170210_095106e have PE on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons. The PE topic for this half term is team building and throwing and catching skills. We will learn these skills through playing Netball, Basket ball and a range of team games. We will also learn to encourage and support one another as a team.
    Please make sure a full PE kit is in school on those days. This consists of a plain white t-shirt, black shorts and trainers/plimsolls.  For more information about what your child is expected to wear for PE, please look at the pictures to the left, or speak to your child’s class teacher.

    The expectation in Year 4 is that children manage their own learning at home. Every term a homework sheet will be sent home which informs the children of the following terms spellings. The children are advised to practise 10 spellings per week and these spellings will then be tested  on a Friday.
    In preparation for the statutory times table testing in Y4 next summer, the children are asked to also access Times Tables Rockstars, which they all have an individual login to- these can be found in the front of your child’s home reading record. In addition, children are expected to read frequently at home to support  reading progress and attainment.  Finally, we have recently signed up to a wonderful website called Spelling Shed, where you child can practise spellings targeted at their year group, specifically from the National Curriculum. Similarly to TTRS, your child’s login can be found in the front of their home reading record. HAVE FUN!!!

    Reading is an essential part of the school curriculum and can open up many doors for your child in the future. Reading frequently can improve your child’s memory, increase vocabulary, unlock creativity and is a low cost form of entertainment! With this in mind, children should be encouraged to read regularly at home and reminded to return their reading book to school on a daily basis. For every time their reading record is signed at home, your child will earn a sticker on the class reading chart, which will eventually lead them to gaining certificates and rewards for their effort.
    So, put it down, turn it off and read a book!
