We hope that you all had a restful Easter/Spring holiday. Year 4 will start their new topic on Thursday 25th April with our hook. Our new topic will be Happy and Healthy! The children will be learning about how to keep themselves fit and healthy. More information can be found on our Summer term curriculum map. Please visit our gallery regularly to see what we have been learning in school.
Please make sure that your child has the appropriate PE kit in school. They should have black shorts and a red t-shirt for indoor PE. If there is cold weather children can wear jogging bottoms instead.
All of Year 4 - Outdoor: Monday
Class 10 – Indoor: Wednesday
Class 11 – Indoor: Thursday
Class 12 – Indoor: Tuesday
The children will be set homework throughout the week. They will be given a piece of maths homework, either Times Table Rockstars or paper-based, on a Monday to be completed by the following Monday. Each Thursday, the children will be tested on their spellings. At the start of term, they will be given the words for each week. We expect children to write out each word (for that week) at least 3 times and then write sentences that incorporate the words. This homework is to be handed in on a Tuesday to enable teachers to check it ready for the books to come home on a Thursday after the spelling test.
It is expected that the children will read at least three times per week at home (as agreed in the home school agreement) and that it is recorded by parents in the planner. Staff will check the planners on a weekly basis to monitor reading at home. House points will be awarded for home reading.
In addition to maths, reading and spelling homework the children will be given a 'jigsaw of activities' to complete for their topic homework. The homework sheet will be sent home during the first week of term and will also be available here for parents to reference. We would like the children to complete as many pieces as possible and bring them into school as they finish them. Each week the children will have the opportunity to share their homework with the class before it is displayed for everyone to see!
