Please take time to look around the school’s website for key information. Also, make sure that you visit this page as often as possible as it is here that you will be able to view what your child is doing in school each week and every term via the Class Blog that appears below.
In the links above you will find information all about what we will be learning in Year 4!
Below, you will find information about your child’s PE time slot and information about reading at home!
At the bottom of the page is a weekly update of what the children have been learning about.
Year 4 will have PE weekly and it is therefore essential that your child has their PE kit in school every day. It is also important that each item of PE kit is clearly labelled with your child’s name in case things get lost. 4BV have PE on a Wednesday.
Reading at Home
Reading at home is essential for your child to make the progress necessary with their school work. Your child will have a Reading Record Book that they bring home each night. If they read to you or another adult, or to themselves, please sign the Record Book to say this has happened. They will then get credits at school towards a range of reading certificates that they will receive in a class assembly.
Please read our weekly class blogs below.
“We created our own Haiku poems this week all about rainforests, deserts and school. It was tricky to follow the 5, 7, 5 pattern!” YS
“We’ve started looking at coordinates and their position on a grid. It was very interesting!” IC
“We looked at water changing states. Water can change between a solid, liquid and even a gas! It was very cool” FS
“We made a poster all about rainforests this week. We were allowed to research facts on the laptops first!” GGG
“We continued to learn about changes to our bodies this week”
Have a lovely weekend.
