Welcome to Year 4
A warm welcome to all pupils joining Year 4 after the summer holidays! We are very excited about teaching you all in 2019-2020! In order to get the maximum out of the opportunities available to your child, we are writing to you to let you know of the topics, subjects and clubs that your child will be doing.
In Year 4, we try to create an exciting, integrated and cross-curricular based learning environment, which encourages the children to link their knowledge and understanding across subjects into other areas.
Over the course of the year we will be completing a range of topics including:
These topics cover aspects of Science, Geography and History, along with links to Art, Music and Design Technology.
In RE we will be studying aspects of both Christianity and Judaism.
Being able to read confidently is the key to enjoying and achieving at school. It is absolutely vital that your child reads at home every day in order to make the maximum progress possible at school. The reading challenge will continue throughout the whole school and we hope Year 4 can have the highest percentage of readers each week.
Practice at Home:
The children will be given their Read, Write, Inc spellings on Monday which will need to be back in school on the following Monday.
Practice in Year 4 will be given out on a Monday and will need to be returned the following Monday. The practice which is set will enable the children to attend practice club to complete the work. If the children do not complete their work then they will have to go to practice club that week during lunch time.
Your child will be able to sign up for a wide variety of lunch-time and after-school clubs from September. There will be a limited number of places, so children must sign up promptly.
Your child will need a suitable PE kit (ie: shorts, t-shirt, trainers, jogging bottoms for the winter months) so they can safely take part in weekly physical exercise opportunities. Year 4 will be doing PE on a Monday afternoon.
Routines and Procedures:
The school day starts at 8:55 am, however the children can arrive at school and enter the classroom from 8:45am where they will be able to access extra reading and maths support. All children meet on the main playground and are brought into school by an adult. Children leave school at 3:15 pm and must leave by the top gate.
I’m sure you are aware of how precious your child’s education is. For this reason it is your responsibility to ensure that your child arrives at School on time everyday, in order for them to achieve their full potential.
It would be very helpful if you could write your child’s name on their school uniform, PE kit, dinner money purses or on an envelope.
Other important information:
Coats need to be in school every day. Any medication for your child must be given to an adult in the class and a form must be filled in with detailed instructions for its storage and administration. The forms are kept in the Reception area with Mrs Rowe. Inhalers can be stored in the classroom and they too must be clearly labelled with your child’s name.
