WELCOME TO YEAR 4
We are delighted to welcome you all back to school; the new year has already got off to a great start. Mr Marchant will continue to teach in the mornings and Mrs Scott, the afternoons. Ms Slater will work in the class all week and Miss Mills, Wednesday to Friday. Our new class email address is email@example.com if you have any questions or need to get in touch.
Just a reminder that Friday is our PE day, so the children can come to school in their PE kit, along with their school jumper.
Reading books can be brought in to be changed on Mondays and the children will bring home enough to last them the full week (although if they have finished a book before Monday and want to bring it in to do a quiz, that's fine!).
Home Learning will be posted here (as in Lockdown), to avoid the unnecessary transfer of items between home and school, and will be set on a Friday. Those children that need to isolate at home for any reason can also access the work taking place in class.
Friday 27th November
There is a spelling overview which details the focus for each week along with a list of example spellings on the class page. On Friday, there will be a short spelling test to see if the spelling rule has been understood. In addition to this, by the end of the year, children need to be able to spell and read a list of words known as the Statutory Word List for Years 3 and 4. You will find a copy of this on this page and these will be assessed regularly as well. The weekly spelling list, along with the Year 3 and 4 Word List are on Spelling Shed to be practised regularly at home.
Thank you for helping the children practise their Learn Its, the tins have proved popular and their efforts are paying off!

*Count as you go up and down the stairs in any multiple, whole numbers, fractions and decimals.
*Go outside, or look from a window - how many different types of tree / flower / bird / car, can you see? Record your findings in a tally chart. Present your results as a pictogram - think about a key, or bar graph - think about the scale on the y axis.
*In your garden, or out on a walk, create a nature collage - google Andy Goldsworthy for inspiration. Take a picture and email me!
* Keep active - be the next Joe Wicks and design your own work out or assault course in the garden or in a large space!
