Dream Believe Achieve
Welcome to Year 4 - Where the possibilities for success are endless!
Mrs. Godwin and Mrs. Holmes will be bringing a year of hard-work, dedication, support, care and excitement for your children!
This half term POW project is due in for the end of September and is about the Tudors. This is due in the week after the half term holiday. A copy is available on the classroom window. Topic Vocabulary is also displayed and has been sent home.
We are having a big push this year on children attending everyday and on time. Y4 are doing really well - keep it up.
We also have been awarded uniform award most weeks so far this term so congratulations again. We really need all children to bring all items of PE kit every Monday and keep in school all week. Our scheduled lessons are Monday and Thursday. Persistently forgetting kit may lead to children losing their Good to Be Green,
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.
Need some support with additional resources?
You can use Spelling Shed, Maths Whizz and MYON at home. Please ask if you need a copy of a password. The children enjoy the competitive element of getting awards and it is a great way to ensure they are completing and enjoying reading at home. All children have a booklet they should use to record their reading for pleasure.
Please continue to read using the levelled scheme book sent home and write in your child's reading record book. This is the time they will read a book to you aloud. We only have a volunteer to change these books on a Monday so please try to send them every Monday.
Spellings, Maths homework and Literacy homework will come home weekly on Thursdays and spelling test will be on Thursdays.
Please continue to practice times tables. Games like Hit the Button can be a fun way to do this at speed. There will be a test every week on Fridays. There is a new national government test for every child in Year 4 which will be in the summer term.
The school continues to use incorporated 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 ask for support.
A homework club is run every Thursday lunchtime if your child struggles or needs any additional support. Children who persistently do not bring in their homework may be required to attend.
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. Reading daily can increase reading age by up to 4 years.
Year 4 have specialist visiting Music Teachers and will have Drum lessons with the Djembe and Dohl drums on Monday mornings. There will be a concert later in the Autumn term and again in the Summer term.
If you have any problems/queries please feel free to contact myself (Mrs. Godwin) or Mrs. Holmes at any time.
