An enormous welcome to all of the Year 4 children and families. I hope that you all had a fantastic summer break and are all looking forward to the year ahead.

Maths and English Targets
The Year 4 children have maths and English targets (which are in the back of their relevant books). Please ask your child their current targets as they should know them.
Spelling homework will be given out on a Friday and children must learn the spellings for the following Friday. Homework will also include using TTRockstars, Mathletics, Prodigy and Spelling Shed on a weekly basis (the children have their log ins for these on their log in bookmarks).
Reading Books / Library Books
Reading Books will be given out twice a week. At school your child will have the opportunity to read to a member of staff at least two times a week (including our guided reading sessions).
Reading, Writing, Reflection and Design Areas:
We have a dedicated reading area in class. The reading area has a wide selection of new books that the children may choose from on a weekly basis.
There is a writing area for two children to work at for extra work on things such as sentence structure, handwriting and SPaG.
We have a reflection area where the children are allowed to spend time reflecting upon anything that has happened in class or at home that week.
Before and After School
At the beginning of the school day, before registration (8.40 – 8.55 depending on arrival time) the children will have different maths, reading and writing activities to complete throughout the year.
School finishes at 3:15pm. Children will be dismissed from the hall door.
The children will need their own water bottles and hand sanitiser, please make sure that they are labelled also.
