Year 4

Dear Parents/Carers

Welcome to Year 4! We look forward to a wonderful year with lots of exciting learning. This letter will give you some key information for this year.

Staff – The staff who will be working with your children in Year 4 are:

  • Miss Wilson – Teacher (4W)
  • Miss Farr – Teacher (4F)
  • Miss Swift – TA (4W)
  • Mrs Barlow – TA (4F)
  • Mrs Woodfin – TA (4W)
  • Mrs Greenhalgh – HLTA across both classes.

Homework – Your child will receive a list of homework activities. Each week they need to choose one piece from the list to complete and bring into school.

Reading – This year, we will be doing Accelerated Reader in school. Children will choose a reading book linked to their reading ability. They will read this book for 30 minutes each day in school and take the book home to continue reading it. Children will be rewarded for any reading they do at home, so please record this in your child’s reading record. When children have finished their reading book, they will complete a quiz to check their understanding of what they have read, when they pass the quiz, they can move on to a new book.

Spellings – Spellings will be sent home on Fridays, with a test the following Friday.

Mathletics – Children can continue to log on to Mathletics at home or at school. This does require an internet connection and a log in. Children’s log in details are the same as previous years.

Uniform – School uniform consists of:

  • a red jumper or cardigan,
  • a white or red polo shirt or shirt,
  • grey trousers, shorts skirts or pinafores
  • black shoes.

Trainers and boots are not to be worn. If your child needs to wear trainers for a short period of time (for example if their school shoes are too small or broken) we require a letter to explain why.

P.E – P.E will take place on Mondays (indoor) and Wednesdays (outdoor). Children will require their P.E kit for every lesson. The P.E kit consists of:

  • Indoor:
    • a plain white t-shirt
    • black shorts
    • black pumps (if no pumps, children will do indoor P.E in bare feet)
  • Outdoor:
    • a plain white t-shirt
    • a tracksuit
    • trainers

 

Many thanks for your co-operation this year,

The Year 4 team.
