Welcome to Year Four
Mr Coles and Ms Ther would like to welcome you to our Year 4 page, here you’ll find information about the school diary and PE kit, as well as the all important bingo homework sheet and the weekly challenge questions for each half term.
In Year Four we cover 6 fantastic topics: Ancient Egypt, Electricity, Italy, Romans, Anglo-Saxons and Rivers. As teachers we do our absolute best to make these as exciting as possible, and if there is anything that you can offer that you think will help, please pop in and have a chat with one of us.
Meet the Teaching Staff
Mr Coles and Ms Ther
At the start of every half term we send out the homework bingo sheet. The current deadline is Wednesday 24th May. To get a gold certificate the children will have to complete 5 or 6 pieces; 3 or 4 will get you a silver certificate; and children bringing in 1 or 2 pieces will receive a bronze certificate.
This half term the question we are investigating is ‘Who were the Anglo-Saxons?’ This is a history based topic, but it also feeds into our English work as we will be looking at (among other things) Anglo-Saxon riddles.
Again this year, pupils will be receiving a new school diary. This will be complete with important school information and can be used as a point of contact between parents and teachers. These diaries will be checked on a weekly basis. It is therefore the children’s responsibility to have them in school every day. Please feel free to comment on the reading children are doing at home. We encourage all parents to make a note of children’s reading as prizes will be awarded at the end of each half-term.
Reading is Fundamental. In fact, it is one of the most important ingredients to becoming all that you can be.
Reading develops the brain, provides a window into the world around you and helps you do better in all school subjects. We recommend that children are heard for at least fifteen minutes each night and notes to be made in their planners.
PE is every Tuesday for 4IC and Wednesday for 4KT. We ask the children to bring fleeces and jogging trousers as well as outdoor footwear (if required during the colder months of the year), as the children will have an indoor and an outdoor session each week. This should include:
- White T-shirt
- Navy shorts (indoor PE)
- Navy or black tracksuit top and bottoms (for colder weather)
We are also currently swimming on a Monday morning.
As teachers, we know that what may seem a little problem to an adult, can be a massive problem to a child – so please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any queries, or if you just want to look at the children’s work on display. We look forward to continuing to work with you and your child!
