Year 4 2022 - 2023
WELCOME TO YEAR 4
We hope that you all had a relaxing Christmas break and feel well rested. Thank you so much for all the lovely cards, gifts and messages. You are all very kind!
Year 4 had a fantastic autumn term, with highlights including our visit to Noddfa, our Ancient Greek topic which resulted in the children making fantastic papier mache pots and delicious Greek salads, and publishing our stories based on Gorilla and Leon and the Place Between.
Mrs Wainwright has joined us in Year 4 and will be teaching on Mondays and Tuesdays. Mrs Griffiths will continue to teach from Wednesday to Friday but will be in school all week. Year 4 will still be having help from Mrs Kavanagh.
During the spring term our topic will be The Romans. We have attached a topic web that will enable you to see the learning journey that your child will be undertaking across the rest of the term.
We are now timetabled to have PE on a Monday and Wednesday morning so please remember to bring in PE kits after the weekend. Please make sure that your child keeps their PE kit in school for the whole week, due to any potential swaps and that every piece of clothing is labelled with their name.
Please encourage your child to read at home as much as possible and to have their reading diaries signed and dated. Mrs Kavanagh will check reading diaries on a Friday as part of our Read Around the World Whole school challenge.
Spellings will be given out at the beginning of term for the whole term and spelling tests will now be on a Tuesday.
English and maths homework will continue to be set on a Friday, due in the following Wednesday. Please also encourage your child to learn their times tables. We will be practising these in class and will have frequent times table checks. There will be a test each Friday afternoon. The children have done a fantastic job so far learning and recalling their tables so thank you for your support.
Extra time will be given if a creative piece of homework has been set.
As always, feel free to pop over before or after school to speak to us if you have any concerns or questions or email admin if you would rather have an appointment. We look forward to continuing to work with you and your child and build on the fantastic autumn term that we have had. This is going to be an exciting term with our residential to look forward to and an educational visit linked to our Romans topic. Further details will follow.
