Welcome to Year Four's Web Page!

Dear Parents / Carers,

Hello and welcome to the new school year – I hope you have had a fantastic summer. Our topic for this term is ‘Vikings'. We will try to tie as much of our learning as possible to this topic. We look at the text, ‘How to Train Your Dragon’ in English which is such a brilliant book, the children love it. Our Art is also based around dragons and eyes, look out for our fantastic display next half term in the main corridor…I know I’m probably biased but it really will be the best display of art work the school will have seen!

Our Science topic this term taught by Mrs Ward is ‘states of matter’. We also have a visit organised from United Utilities who will teach us about the water cycle and lots of other fun things.

Home Learning will still be set on Thursdays, for return to me by the following Monday. This gives your child an evening to have a quick look at the homework and any questions regarding the work can be asked and answered on the Friday before the weekend. I also run a homework help club Friday break time if children need extra support or resources.

I will begin the term by setting the weekly spellings each Tuesday, for testing on the following Monday. Times tables will also be tested each week on the Monday, for this term the children have a family to learn each week, for example week one is the 3’s family, children are expected to learn the inverse for the test too, 27÷3 =? Please encourage your child to learn these either by repetition, reading, playing games! By the end of this school year the children need to know up to 12x12, so lots of encouragement at home will help secure them.

Reading groups and days will be set over the next couple of weeks. Please can I request that your child comes to school with a reading book from home that they will take home each day and read in the evening, your child will benefit greatly from spending reading time with you. There will also be books available at school too that they can may home.

P.E. lessons will initially be on Thursdays and Fridays, for which indoor kit of plain white T-shirt and blue shorts will be needed. Games lessons will be on Wednesdays – as we are moving into winter months, please ensure your child has tracksuit bottoms and a jumper or fleece. Spare socks and a carrier bag would also be useful, as we tend to go out in all weathers!

Please do not hesitate to speak to me if you have any queries or concerns, either at the start or at the end of the school day. I look forward to learning all about your children and to an exciting and successful term.

Kind Regards

 

Miss K Leigh
