Home reading.

A letter will be handed out in the next week, explaining the expectations in terms of home reading. We require your child to read at least 3 times a week and are hoping that with home and school encouraging children to read they will develop a love of books and their improved reading will have a positive effect on their learning.

If you require any help in supporting or encouraging your child to read then please feel free to see any member of Year 4 staff who will be more than happy to help you.

Children will be able to change their reading books whenever they need to! We promote independence and  therefore the children are able to choose their own reading books. They will be reminded of the colour they need to be selecting.

All children need to make sure that their PE kit is in school for the first week back. Your child needs, some indoor pumps, socks, black shorts and a white T shirt. These all need to be labelled and stored in a bag. PE kits remain in school for the half term. During the half term, the kits are taken home, washed and then returned ready for the next half terms learning. Your support and co-operation in this matter is appreciated.

Children's PE days will be updated onto this page when they have been agreed.

Miss Freestone and Mr Kettle's class will be swimming in the first half term. A letter explaining dates and kit needed will be coming out ASAP.

Mrs Lines will have their PE sessions on a Tuesday and a Friday. 

PE Timetables change on a half termly basis and the information for the current half term will be updated on this page.

Homework and Spelling

The children will soon been given a copy of this half terms homework and we hope that the choice that the children have will inspire them to do some fantastic home learning. At least 1 piece of homework is required by the end of half term. We insist that homework is completed to a high standard and presented beautifully. Can we also ask that if your child completes a piece of homework it should reflect approximately 3 hours worth of work!

Learning Journeys

There will be a new tab created on this page which details the new learning journey for each half term. Please visit these tabs and find a copy of your child's learning areas for the half term and any homework linked to the learning journey.

A copy of Year 4's Long Term plan can be found attached to the bottom of this page.
