Dear Parents and Children,
I hope you are looking forward to an exciting year! In Year 4, your child will continue to develop their skills and knowledge in a fun and creative way through our ARCS Curriculum. You can find out what we’ll be learning, and when, by looking at the Curriculum section of the website.
Our class routine is as follows:
Library sessions will take place every Thursday morning. Children will have the opportunity to borrow books from the school library.
Children will be given a reading book every Friday and will be listened to on a weekly basis in school with the class teacher. Please support your child with their reading and spend 10 minutes a day reading of an evening time. Reading books need to be returned every Wednesday so they can be changed.
Our P.E. lessons take place on Thursdays. Children should come into school in their P.E. kit, which should be red or white t-shirt and red or black shorts. Hoodies/Jumpers can be worn during cooler weather if we head outside.
We are fortunate in Year 4 to be able to learn a musical instrument! Every Wednesday, Mrs Ali will be teaching how to play the violin. We can take the violins home to practise, but they must be returned on or before Wednesday, to practise in class.
Every Friday, children will be given 10 spellings to learn, ready for next Friday’s spelling test. We’ll also alternate between English and Maths homework each week, to consolidate the learning that’s taken place in class that week. Homework and spellings will be assigned on Seesaw.
Finally, please ensure children’s names are written inside their jumpers; our lost property box fills up rapidly if we can’t reunite children with their missing jumpers or cardigans!
Thank you for your support,
Mr Cahill, Miss Harris and the Y4 team
