together we live and learn, we play and pray

Year 4

Welcome to Year Four! We have a very busy and exciting term ahead of us. I am really looking forward to all the fantastic work we are going to produce together.  

This term, the title of our theme is ‘I Am Warrior.

Cornerstones:

I am warrior! I am strong, brave and powerful! Meet me in battle, draw your sword, wield your axe and challenge me if you dare! Invade and attack, Romans versus The Celts, the fight is on… Discover warring Britain, meet Claudius, Boudicca and Julius Caesar, and find out what the Romans did for us.  When all that battling makes you hungry, relax, lie back and feast yourself on dormice and grapes, or perhaps a roasted swan sprinkled with nuts?

If there is anything else you would like to know about our theme, please ask.

Homework

There is an expectation that children will read at home daily. Please ensure that the purple reading record or yellow reading diary is filled in daily showing a record of what has been read. This will need to be in school everyday along with the book that your child is reading. 

There is no longer any written maths homework to complete. Instead, your child has been given a login in to timetables rock stars. The expectation is that they will spend at least five minutes on this everyday. If you have any questions about this program, please ask them when you collect your child at the end of the day. I will be only two happy to answer them. 

Spelling books need to be in school everyday as we work in them during lessons. Spelling homework will be given out on Tuesdays. This will be a list of spellings and an activity that helps to learn these for the Friday spelling test. If your child has spellings that have been highlighted in green, these are the ones that they should learn. If you would like some additional ideas on how to help your child learn their spellings, please ask. 

To avoid children worrying please inform us if there are any difficulties in completing set homework. We understand that sometimes family circumstances make completion of homework difficult and we can help children complete work in school on these occasions.

Other classroom Information

PE kits need to be in school all the time please but our PE days are Wednesday and Friday.

School water bottles are welcome in school at all times- please ensure these only contain water unless other arrangements have been made with the class teacher/ head teacher.

Please refer to the school website about uniform. The children have returned to school looking incredibly smart and I look forward to seeing this continuing throughout the year.  

Thank you for your continued support. The Year 4 teaching team.
