Happy New Year! Welcome back to the Spring term and to 2018! We trust you had a lovely holiday and look forward to a term full of learning and progress.
Phonics will continue to be grouped across the year group like last term, and will take place on a Monday. However, please be aware your child may have a different teacher and be in a different group following our assessments at the end of last term. Children will continue to receive 10 spellings on a Tuesday, to be tested on the following Monday. Additionally, children will also receive 10 spellings on a Friday (to be tested the following Friday) from their class teacher, which are related to their age.
Each week, we still expect pupils to read their school book and complete their journal. May we stress the importance of this and how the written responses are very important as they help show your child’s understanding. It is vital your child has their reading book in school every day. Additionally, they will continue with their purple homework book.
We will start the Spring term learning all about ‘The Vikings’ during History and ‘Circuits’ during Design and Technology, followed by our Geography topic of ‘Asia’. Science objectives concentrate on States of Matter. Pupils will continue to learn French in their Modern Foreign Language lessons, whilst RE focuses on Hinduism. Children will continue to have weekly Computing (ICT) lessons in the Computer suite.
PE days are as follows:
Class 13: Thursday and Friday
Class 14: Wednesday and Thursday
Class 15: Tuesday and Wednesday
Please ensure your child has the correct PE kit in school (black shorts, white t-shirt and pumps). Additionally, please provide your child with an outdoor kit consisting of; plain black/grey/blue joggers, suitable outdoor shoes (trainers) also a plain sweatshirt as PE will take place outside wherever possible. It would also be appreciated if all uniform (including PE kit and pumps) is labelled with your child’s full name and class.
Please can we remind parents that no jewellery should be worn in school with the exception of stud earrings, and in line with Health and Safety guidelines, these should not be worn on PE days. Children will be asked to remove earrings before PE sessions.
In January we welcome The Fire Service to the year group to share with us fire safety information linked to risks and causes of fire, smoke alarms, fire escapes, emergency calls, hoax calls and road and in-care safety. It has always been very informative in previous years and offers the children valuable information.
Thank you for your continued support
Please click on the link below for the powerpoint from the parents meeting on 27th November about Year 4's residential to Conwy.
Year 4 welcomed the Fire service to inform us about fire safety. We learnt what we should do to prevent a fire such as fitting smoke alarms and closing our doors when we go to bed. Also we learnt what to do if we were in a situation where fire was present.
Look at our fantastic homework!
