Welcome to Year 4
Welcome to the Summer Term at James Brindley Community Primary School! The final push to the end of the year and getting ready to be year 5 ready. The children have already made a great start on this. Well done!
Term 3 is a History-based topic across the school and we are focusing Ancient Egypt - if you would like to conduct any research at home, then please feel free! In Mathematics, we will be primarily focusing on Number which will range from understanding the value of numbers to using the four different operations in different contexts. In English we are looking at a book called Leon and the Place Between.
This term, P.E. will take place on Mondays and Thursdays. Please make sure both PE kits are in school at all times (indoor and outdoor) and that all items have your child's name in them. This term, the children are going to focus on Athletics, including running skills, also throwing and jumping.
Homework will be the Pick'n'Mix format, that will be attached below. Please complete at least one activity a week. Spelling will be put on Spelling Shed on a Friday, the children have a week to learn them and will be tested the following Friday. We also have Times Table Rockstars or 'tt rockstars' as the children call it. This is another brilliant way of engaging the children with their learning.
Please try to read at least 4 times a week with your children as it makes a huge difference to their learning! If you are able to ask them questions as you read with them this will also support their comprehension massively. To clarify right from the beginning of the year, children are allowed to read their own book every now and again, however, please make the school book a priority as it gives children the opportunity to access a wider range of texts and vocabulary.
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 of the effort you put in at home!
