Welcome to Year 4

 

Welcome to Year 4, our class teacher is Mrs Pollitt, our Teaching Assistants are Mrs Burton and Mrs Smith-Walkden and Mr. Hardy is a volunteer who comes in to help us.

We are looking forward to the year ahead as we will be studying lots of new topics. (The topic plan is on our class page with lots more information and there are ideas about home learning activities too). P.E. will be every Monday afternoon so it’s important that we have our kit in school.

We will keep you updated with what we are doing in school by blogging regularly and we would really appreciate it if you could look at our blogs and post comments on them too.

Homework will be mostly online.  We need to go on Doodle Maths for at least five minutes a day, we need to use Spelling Shed to learn our spellings and we will also need to complete the written spelling homework, which will be given out every Friday and will be due in the following Wednesday.  We will have a reading book that should be read daily and we also have a library of books to access on Bug Club and we need to use this as much as we can.

In the summer term, we will be having a times tables test so we need to know all of the times tables facts to 12 x 12 off by heart.  There are lots of online games that can help with this too like Doodle Tables and Hit the Button and we will be practising them regularly at school.

In our class we have made a classroom charter, which we have all signed, this sets out our commitment to working together as one team to achieve the very best learning outcomes.  We all have high expectations of ourselves and we always try our very best in everything that we do.
