    Welcome back to a new school year! I hope you have had an exciting and restful holiday and are ready for the adventure ahead!. I am very excited for the year ahead and hope your children thoroughly enjoy their journey through Y4.

    In Year 4 this term, we are starting the year as we mean to go on- working hard whilst having as much fun as possible! Over the next term I am going to be encouraging the children to work more independently, work efficiently with their peers to improve their own progress and for them to be more resilient when facing greater challenges. Consolidating these foundations of learning will ensure the year ahead will be as successful as possible for your children.

    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.

  • Image result for homework
    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.
    The children are asked to also access Times Tables Rockstars, which they all have an individual login to, plus read frequently at home to support their maths and reading progress and attainment.

    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!
