Year 4 Class Page

 

Welcome to Year 4!

 

This year has been an unusual year. However, it is time to return to some kind of normality and face the challenging and busy year ahead of us. Therefore, it is vital that you stay focused, work hard and take responsibility for your own learning.  Throughout the year, you will be provided with a range of exciting learning opportunities linking to each topic’s theme. Each half term you will have a different class novel to explore and unpick, the first being Robert Swindell’s nail- biting ‘Room 13’.

 

General Reminders

Reading

Your child will receive a home reading book from school and is expected to read at home every evening and have their reading record signed by an adult. Reading regularly supports all aspects of learning by broadening their vocabulary and imagination.

 

Homework

Homework is none negotiable. It is an essential part of learning; enabling good progress to be made. Children will be given a piece of Maths, English and Comprehension each week, alongside weekly spellings. It must arrive promptly and to a high standard.

 

Monday: Maths homework – to be handed in on Wednesday

Wednesday: English homework – to be handed in on Friday

Friday: Comprehension homework – to be handed in on Tuesday

Friday: Spelling homework – to be handed in on the following Friday

 

Swimming

Children in Year 4 now have the opportunity to take part in weekly swimming lessons. They must bring their swimming kit every Tuesday. They will need a swimming costume or shorts and a towel. Earrings are not allowed in the swimming pool, so it is recommended children do not attend school with them in, on a Tuesday.
