Welcome to Year 4

Welcome to the second half term in Year 4! 

Below is a snapshot of what your child will be learning in our topic this half term.  

Persuasive Writing

As part of our Autumn 1 topic 'Mr Gum' pupils wrote persuasive texts, encouraging other pupils in Key Stage 2 to read the book. A selection of letters is below.

 Homework: (Homework is set so you have the weekends free!  I hope this works for you.)

  • Weekly Spelling Tests (See inside Spelling Test book for more information.)
  • Reading - Over the past week your child has taken their Star Reader test on Accelerated Reader which has checked their zpd book level.  I am delighted to say a lot of the class have moved up already!  Please encourage your child to read regularly at home. We are looking for 90% or above pass rates on quizzes.  We have already given out half a jar of wiggly worms to children achieving this great percentage of 90% or more!
  • X Tables and Division Facts - NEW for this year. As you have seen this week Mr Moore and I have ordered a Multiplication and Division Book for Year 4!  Please complete one section every week. This will be given out on a Monday and must be handed in for marking on a Friday.  Our interactive test also links to the section they have worked on at home.

Our PE times are Monday and Thursday. Please could you help to remind your child to bring their correct kit on these days (or leave it in school for the half term).  If your child does not bring in their PE kit they will have to wear spare kit that the school will supply.  As it gets colder I don’t mind if your child wants to bring in tracksuit bottoms and a jumper as well.  Spare socks are a great idea too!  (We will always aim to go outside as long as it is not pouring with rain!)

I will ask for wellies and waterproofs in school as and when required for Outdoor Learning.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me by approaching me at the end of the day or by booking an appointment at the office.

I currently only have one volunteer to hear readers.  If any of you have a spare hour a week, we would welcome you into our class between 2 and 3pm any day!  You don’t have to commit to every week and we will go through everything you need to know. 

We hope to see you at our annual Parents Briefing for Year 4 where you will find out more information on Monday 17th September at 3:30pm or 5:30pm.

We look forward to working with you and your child this year.  Once again, welcome to Year 4.

Yours sincerely,

Miss Tonkin              Mrs Wheeldon            Mrs Webber          Miss Dawe
