Attendance:

We are having a big push this year on children attending everyday and on time.

 Awards are given out for the class with the least late per week in our celebration assembly, so let's have a big push on year 4 achieving this every week. We have made an excellent start with zero lates in week 1- keep it up!

 

We also have been awarded the PE kit and uniform award weekly so far this term so congratulations again. Keep it up Year 4!

Every Award earns us 5 minutes of Goldentime. When we have 15-30 minutes we will have a class activity treat which the children will choose.

 

PLEASE AVOID HOLIDAYS IN TERM TIME AS IT IS AFFECTING OUR PERFORMANCE IN ASSEMBLY BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY IT IS IMPACTING UPON THEIR LEARNING!

Power Projects

Our Power Project for this half term is Reign Over Us. We will be learning about the Kings and Queens of England from 1066 to the present day. The first Power project is an exciting chance to learn about Sailors and Pirates from the reign of Queen Elizabeth I. Projects are due in on October 1st.

 

If your child has lost their sheets or you would just require additional access, please find the project below.

 

Power Project 1

Additional information:

 The school has now incorporated a new system known as Marvellous Me, which keeps parents and carers up-to-date with what their child is achieving in school and provides reminders of any events or activities the children may be participating in. Please continue to keep checking your Marvellous Me to see the fantastic things your child is achieving!

 

If you haven't downloaded the app please do so. If you require any support with this please don't hesitate to come and see myself or Mrs Holmes.

Homework - Maths homework will be given out every Friday and will be expected back on the following Wednesday. Spellings will be given out fortnightly and tested on a Wednesday after 2 weeks. Please encourage the children to practice little and often regularly. Discussing the spelling "rule" with them will help them too.  Home reading books will come home on Fridays provided they have been returned the week before with your comments written in. They should come back to school on Monday.

 

DID YOU KNOW- In Year 4 we are encouraging children to read a range of genres or types of book. For each different genre they read they can earn points towards Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards. They have to record this and write about each book they read in a Green Reading Challenge book. This book can come home and be completed at home at weekends. Or you can send in their writing on a piece of paper signed by you. They can include genres such as comics, newspapers and recipes as well as other non fiction. A wide range of story genres are included. They can write about a book from their house or the library not just ones from school. Happy Reading !

 

A homework club is run every Thursday lunchtime if your child struggles or needs any additional support.

 

We would very much appreciate if your child could read everyday at home whether that be independently or ideally with you to help develop their reading skills and confidence.

 

P.E. - P.E. is every Monday and Friday. It is important that all children bring the correct P.E. kit, which is: Black shorts, white t-shirts and black pumps/trainers.

 

Year 4 have specialist visiting Music Teachers and will have Drum lessons with the Djembe and Dohl drums on Monday mornings.

 

If you have any problems/queries please feel free to contact myself (Mrs. Godwin) or Mrs. Holmes at any time.
