Year 4

Welcome to Year 4

In Year 4, we are always trying our hardest to become the best version of ourselves. 

Our class page is a way of showing you what we have been working hard on in our lessons, whilst also informing you of any upcoming things during the week. Please regularly visit our class page to see what we have been getting up to and any bits of information that you may find useful.

 

Many thanks, Miss Elliott and Mrs Hawkins.

 

 

 

Star of the Week!
 

Every week Mrs Hawkins and I will be nominating one pupil, who we think has worked super hard, to receive 'Star of the Week'. We will announce it on our class page every Friday, so be sure to check in to see who is a star each week!

 

 

8/10/19

 

 

Our Star of the Week this week is Jake! For his outstanding work both in and out of school.

 

Well done Jake, you are doing amazingly in Year 4!

Keep up the good work.

 

Miss Elliott and Mrs Hawkins

 

 

 

Notices

 

27/09/19 Forest School

Could you please be reminded to send your child in with their forest school kit and shoes in separate carrier bags. The children take their forest school shoes to the back door before getting changed into them to go outside in. This is to ensure that mud isn't walked in through the school afterwards.

 

Thank you for your continued support,

 

Miss Elliott and Mrs Hawkins

Our Class Wish

As we embark on a new school year and new opportunities in Year 4, we will...

 'be curious in our learning and never give up.'

This is our class wish for this new academic year. We will work exceptionally hard to achieve this wish everyday, by trying new things and encouraging each other.

 

Knowledge Organisers and Homework

 

Knowledge Organiser Folders

Today, the children were sent home with their Knowledge Orangiser folders. The folders hold their home learning tasks and their subject organisers. These are to be brought into school everyday and taken home every night. As you are aware, the five pound deposit is to ensure that the children look after their folders and bring them in everyday as they will support their lessons. Any children who have not paid their deposit, will be provided with photocopies of the home learning tasks and subject organisers. 

 

Thank you for your continued support,

Miss Elliott and Mrs Hawkins

 

Home Learning Tasks

Each child will have a copy of the 'Home Learning Tasks Grid', either in their knowledge organiser folder or in their homework books. This has a range of tasks to be done at home:

Daily Tasks - One to be done each day and signed by parent/carer in homework diary.

Enrichment Tasks - To be done at leisure and signed by parent/carer in homework diary. 

Weekly Tasks - To be set by teacher every Thursday and completed in homework books by following Monday.

Extension Tasks - To be done at leisure by the end of term (Christmas)

 

School Essentials 

In order for your child to be able to fully access the curriculum and to enable us to read with them, could you please ensure that your child has the following with them each day:

 

  • Book bag
  • Reading book and diary
  • Pencil case with essential items
  • Knowledge Organiser Folder

 

Please be reminded that a £5 deposit is required for the pencil case and Knowledge Organiser folder and this should be paid into the office. Thank you.
