Hello and welcome to the Year 4 blog page. What a busy couple of weeks! I hope you all had a lovely summer holiday.
The children have settled well into Year 4 and are working really hard. This half term, our Topic is Caves, Fire and Tools! We will be learning all about the Stone Age to the Iron Age.
Important information for Year 4 parents/guardians.
PE days: Monday and Thursday
Home Reading: Please encourage your child to read every day, as well as also listening to them read. When they have finished a book, we ask them to complete a book review either in their green books or on the blog, or choose a task from their red books. These books will be checked every Tuesday. If your child finishes their book before Tuesday, they can choose a new one from the Home Reading section in school at any time.
Home Learning: See the Home Learning tab at the top of the blog for more information.
Spellings: Spellings can now be found on the blog under the Home Learning tab. Every Friday, your child will be tested on their spellings for the appropriate week, plus some from previous weeks. Letter formation and the use of capital letters (when appropriate) is really important with the spellings to reinforce other aspects of Literacy we will be working on at school.
Brass Lessons: This year, your child has the fantastic opportunity to learn to play a brass instrument. Their brass lesson will take place every Friday.
Swimming Lessons: After the Easter Holidays, your child will begin swimming lessons. More information about this will be provided nearer the time.
I look forward to meeting you on ‘Meet the Teacher day’ next Tuesday.
