Here you will find all you need to know about the classes and what we are up to! Make sure you follow us on X and Seesaw (log ins sent home) to see regular updates on what we have been doing in school and in lessons!

Important Information

We will have two PE lessons per week so children need to have their kits in school at all times. PE kits will need to be in school on a Monday, to go home on a Friday for washing. If you would prefer your child’s kit to stay in school throughout the half term, then that is fine. Due to the ongoing situation, we are unable to lend children kits and they will be unable to share kits too.

Our planning time is on a Tuesday afternoon, so Mr Castro or Miss Hirst will be seeing the children out

Our spelling tests will be every Friday. New spellings will be given on Friday to be learnt for the following Friday. The children will have four/five spelling lessons a week before their spelling test on Friday afternoon so there are plenty of opportunities for lots of practise inside and out of school.

It is vital your child reads as much as possible at home as well in school.  Do not worry if your child has brought home a different level to normal, as we want to build confidence before Year 4 objectives. Remember, we have fantastic resources like Bug Club and Reading Eggs which all the children have log ins for and can use at home and will be using in school.

This will go home every Friday on the Homework letter and will consist of spelling words to learn for the following Friday, as well as Maths homework. This could be on MyMaths (the children have log ins) or to continue to learn their target times tables at home and on TTRockstars if they wish. The children will take part in a weekly times tables test and they will be made aware of the times table that they need to work on.

Keeping in Touch

Please use our SeeSaw app to share any learning that you have done at home. We love to see it and we will be able to respond to any messages via the app. If you are unable to access the app for any reason, then please contact the school office.

There will be opportunities to join a Class Zoom and  school assembly if you are at home.  When a Class Zoom or assembly has been arranged, you will be sent joining instructions through Parent Mail and SeeSaw. We would love to see as many of you attending as possible! At the beginning of the Class Zooms, we will take a register to see who is regularly engaging in their online learning. If we see you on Zoom, we won’t give you a call in the week!

The Zooms will be carried out by either Mrs Hansen, Mrs Howard or Miss Marshall and will be for both classes each time.

Reading

Reading every day is a crucial part of our learning in Year 4. We use reading skills across all areas of our curriculum and so it is vital that you practise daily – even if you feel you are a confident reader.

Each day we would like you to read for at least twenty minutes. We would love to see what you have been reading.  Please upload a photo of you enjoying your reading material (whatever it might be) and we can enter you into our reading challenge prize draw – these will be saved for when you are back in school, so the more evidence of reading, the more chances of winning!

If you can, it would be great to have a video of you reading aloud. We would love to share this with you!

Please don’t forget about Bug Club! All the children have log-ins which we can remind them of if needed. This is all online and there are many books and activities on there to choose from.
