Year 4

Welcome to Year 4
 

 

 

September:

 

A very warm (or should I say wet and windy!) welcome back to school and to Year 4. I hope you have all had a wonderful holiday and made some unforgettable memories. Speaking of unforgettable memories...so begins this new and exciting year at school! After just three days, the children have all made a very positive impression on myself and I am very much looking forward to challenging them and inspiring them to bigger and better things.


Term 1 is a Geography-based topic across the school and ours is exploring Cities and Rivers - therefore if you would like to conduct any research at home, then please feel free!  Our Learning Challenge Question this term is 'Where would you choose to build a city?'. In Mathematics, we will be primarily focusing on Number (Place Value, Counting, Ordering) and in English we are looking at a book called 'The Lost Happy Endings' by Carol Ann Duffy and Jane Ray. 

 

Children will be attending swimming every Thursday starting the first week back. Details of swimming lessons were sent in a letter which can be found below. This will be ongoing for the next 18 weeks. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact myself, Mrs Seddon or Mrs Devney.

 

Due to swimming, P.E. takes place on MondaysPlease make sure PE kit is in school at all times and that all items have your child's name in them. We will be starting with Gymnastics and will move onto SAQ (Speed, Agility and Quickness) Training. We also have a rugby club starting with Edstart coaching which is a great opportunity for boys and girls to try something new.

 

Homework will be given out as a whole school in the coming weeks. It will usually include spellings, and a short piece of writing and maths. If you could also practise the times tables as much as possible that would be fantastic as we will be starting to test the children daily. A timetable and homework expectations can be found below, please familiarise yourself with this information in order for us to ensure the finest of work is received before the homework deadline. It may also be useful to look through the 'Year 4 end of year expectations' below.

 

I look forward to us having a hugely successful year together. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to speak to me or make an appointment with Mrs Renshaw at Reception.

 

Thank you for your support and all the effort you put in at home! 

 

Mr Stanfield
