Welcome to Year 4
Welcome to Year 4 and to a brand new year of learning!
The Class Teacher in Year 4 is Mr Duckworth. Mrs Dexter supports our learning too.
Our class motto is “Year 4...means more!” and we hope you have a very successful and enjoyable year!
To help you get organised, here are some reminders about our weekly arrangements:
Monday - Spellings and times tables given out and will be tested on Friday. Library day.
Tuesday - PE (full kit, NO JEWELLERY).
Wednesday - music lesson - violins.
Thursday - Homework is given out to be returned the following Tuesday.
Friday - Spelling test, Mental Maths test or Tables tests. Parents are welcome to come along to the 2.45pm Assembly.
We also have the weekly draw on Friday when our hard work throughout the week is celebrated and rewarded.
A bit more information!
Homework consists of one piece of written homework in Maths and Literacy. These are given out on Thursday to be returned by the following Tuesday. We would prefer if homework was hand written rather than typed, to give the children plenty of opportunity to hone their handwriting skills. We ask that parents sign the completed homework, this way we know that Mums and Dads can see how hard we are working and what we are learning. We may also have mini-projects to do based on the topics that we will be covering in class each half term, but plenty of time will be given to complete these alongside regular homework.
Reading - The children are becoming more fluent readers, however we ask that the children still read aloud to an adult as often as possible and that their homework diary is signed every time. If your child reads alone, they can write in their diary and an adult can sign to say they have read.
Maths - We need to know all tables up to 12 x 12 by the end of the year, so we have weekly times tables tests which are done every Friday.
As we progress through the year this page will be updated with information and photographs of some of the exciting activities which our class take part in, so make sure to check it regularly to keep up to date with our news!
