Welcome Year 4!

Welcome back and I hope you have had a fantastic February holiday. I hope you are ready to come back to learn after a lovely rest. Miss Gibson and I have lots of exciting things planned for the year ahead. 



PE will be on Monday and Thursday this term. This term Danielle (our PE specialist) will be teaching on a Monday and Miss Preugschat will be teaching on a Thursday.  You will need to have a labelled PE kit in school at all times, which can be taken home to be washed over the weekend or half termly. 

Homework, Spellings and Reading

Two lots of homework will be given out each week.  Literacy and maths homework will be given out on a Friday and returned on a Wednesday. Reading books need to be changed at least once a week and don’t forget to bring your Reading Journal and book in everyday. 


Times tables 

There will be a huge push on times tables this year in preparation for the statutory multiplication tables check in June 2021.  The multiplciation tables check is an on-screen check consisting of 25 times tables questions. Your child will answer 3 practice questions before moving on to the official check, and will then have 6 seconds to answer each question. On average, the check should take no longer than 5 minutes to complete. To support you in learning your times tables, you will have access to Times Table Rockstars at home and will be set a weekly times table to learn.



Spelling lists will also be sent home at the beginning of a half term and are to be practised each week. It is important that you take the time to learn the spellings as it will impact on your English work.


Water Bottles

It is really important, particularly at the moment, that you bring in your own water bottle every day. You must take it home each evening for it to be washed. Normally we would have extra cups for children in the classroom, but we are no longer allowed to do this as it increases the risk of cross contamination. Please bring your own, named bottle each day. You will be allowed to refill it throughout the day, if you drink all your water.

We can't wait to see you again!

Miss Preugschat and Miss Gibson
