Miss Gillon and Miss Crump and Classes 4G and 4C welcome you to Year 4!
Below are the answers to some frequently asked questions, we hope they will help you and your child with the transition to Year 4.
4G have PE lessons on Monday and Thursday. Monday is an indoor lesson and Thursday is an outdoor lesson (weather permitting).
4C have PE lessons on Wednesday and Thursday. Similarly, Wednesday is an indoor lesson and Thursday is an outdoor lesson (weather permitting).
Children may bring jogging bottoms and a jumper for outdoor PE lessons during the Winter season, as part of our uniform policy these must be navy blue or black.
Homework will be handed out every Friday and is expected to be returned to school on Thursday.
Every two weeks, on a Friday afternoon, we will hand out super sentences. The children will have two weeks to learn the spelling, punctuation and grammar presented in the sentences before they are tested on the second Friday. the test date will be displayed on each set of super sentences.
We will also hand out a short list of spellings every Friday. The children will be tested on these spellings every Friday morning and then given a fresh set of spellings to learn.
Please can reading books come into school every day as your child will need to change them regularly. Please leave a comment in your child's reading record, your comments are a valued part of the learning to read process.
Don't forget your child needs a water bottle in school. They are kept in the classroom and available apart from during focussed teaching time.
If you have any concerns and feel you need to speak to us, please don't hesitate.....after school is best as mornings tend to be very busy.
We look forward to working with your children this year.
