Each child will bring home their reading book and reading record each evening. Children are encouraged to read daily, even if it is only for ten minutes. Please ensure that you sign to say your child has read, as this will be checked daily. There are also rewards for the child who has read the most times during each half term, and children who read regularly also find it easier when completing their written work at school.
Each child will also have 13 spellings to learn each week and practising at home will help them when they are tested on these spellings every Friday.
Times Table Rockstars are also an important part of your child's learning, and they will have a particular set of times tables to revise each week. They also have a log-in to access the website which will allow them to practise online at home, with the school having access to the results.
Year 4 has P.E. every Tuesday afternoon. Please can you make sure that your child has the correct clothing and footwear depending on the season. For example - colder weather kit should include jogging bottoms and a tracksuit top/hoodie as well as outdoor footwear and a t-shirt. All clothing should be school colours - white, black or green and should be plain and not have any logos or pictures on them.
This week in Art, we have had a go at paper weaving. The children had to follow a set of instructions to create a pattern by weaving their paper in and out.
