Homework: Year 4 pupils will have homework on a Friday (to be brought in the following Monday) and homework on a Wednesday (to be brought in on the Friday). Homework will be Language and Maths mainly but may include other subjects throughout the year e.g. Handwriting, Welsh, Science.
Spelling Tests and Times Tables: There will be a spelling test every Friday with new words given out for the following Friday based on sounds and their spelling patterns (please make sure spelling book is brought in on Fridays). We will also be learning times tables at random up to 12×12 this year. The children will know which table they need to work on.
Reading books: Pupils use the school library on a weekly basis to change their scheme book and self-choice book if they need to. I will be listening to the children read each week (individually or with a group) and they will take part in class reading sessions. It is important that children read for enjoyment each day. Please could children have their books with them each each day.
PE: Year 4 will have their PE sessions on a Wednesday and Friday. It is important that pupils get used to changing for PE in school. For these sessions they will need trainers, socks, shorts/joggers/tracksuit, T-shirt and jumper (any colour). PE sessions will be outside and inside. Netball club is on a Thursday until 4pm. Boys rugby/football is Monday until 4pm.
Mathletics: Please encourage your child to use this fantastic maths resource. All children have their own username and password and I will be setting weekly challenges to complete which will revise maths skills covered in class. Please let me know of any problems using this.
Wet play: The wet weather will soon be here and it would be great if the children could bring in puzzle book e.g. wordsearch, crossword, sudoku etc. to use during wet break times.
If there are any changes or additions to the above, I will let you know.
