Welcome to Year 4
There are 2 classes in year 4, 4OH and 4CR
- PE: Year 4 will have PE on a Wednesday. Children are to come to school dressed in their P.E kit on this day which should consist of a plain white t-shirt (no pictures or logos), black or grey tracksuit bottoms (no stripes or large logos), red shorts (to be worn under their tracksuit bottoms or in a bag) and black trainers (NO white soles, branding or coloured marks).
- Home Learning: All homework will continue to be set on Class Dojo Stories. This will be for spelling and Rapid Recall in addition to daily reading. Research has shown that this is the most beneficial kind of homework.
- Reading: Every child is expected to read each night. Please try to hear your child read, sign their reading record (or encourage them to) and make sure that they bring their reading book and reading record into school each day so that the staff can hear them reading their books.
- Spellings: Children will receive a set of spellings to be learned each week – please help your child learn them, it makes such a difference.
- Rapid Recall: Children will be given an online activity to reinforce their learning of mathematical key knowledge. An example of the question types in the quiz will also be given. Children should practice a little a few times a week and they will be tested weekly in school to see how well they are doing.
- Times Table Rock Stars: In Year 4 children will undertake the Multiplication Tables Check (more information on this will be given in September). Times Table Rock Stars is a great way to practise this. We encourage children to use this fantastic resource at home, log in details from this year will carry over to the next academic year.
- Mathletics is also available for children to use at home and something that supports children really well with their progression in Maths.
- Equipment: Please clearly name all of your child’s belongings (coats, bags, pack lunches etc.) so that if lost they can be relocated swiftly.
If you do have any concerns please do not hesitate to contact your class teacher, a member of the team or send one the team a dojo message. We are really looking forward to a fabulous year with your amazing children!
