Spring 2: The Land of Ice and Fire (Iceland)

Summer 1: Reflections

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.

 

Homework

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, Dreamscape 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 on a Tuesday and a Friday.  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 (8.30 – 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 foyer door.

 

General Reminders

The children will need sun protection (hats and suncream) this half term and they must also bring in their own water bottles and hand sanitiser in from in from home, please make sure that they are labelled also.
