Hello, welcome to Class 4!
All the children in Class 4 have settled back in really well. We’ve had a great start to the term and are really enjoying our time together. At the bottom of the page you will find this term’s Knowledge Organisers, including key words.
There are a few things you will need to know:
Class 4 has PE on Thursday afternoons. Children will need to wear their PE kits to school. They can wear jogging bottoms and will still need their school jumper to keep warm in class.
Daily reading with your child is essential for their progress. Children are encouraged to read aloud to an adult as often as possible; please listen to them read, ask questions and read to them to model good expression. Children should keep notes in their reading record themselves, but please feel free to add a note yourself. Children will be taking one book home from school which will be swapped on Mondays.
Children have been given usernames and passwords to TTRockstars and Prodigy Maths, two online maths games that will help them to develop their maths skills. TT Rockstars will develop their mental maths skills with multiplication and division. Prodigy Maths will challenge them across the whole maths curriculum.
Children need to be practising their times tables as often as possible. Year 4’s are now expected to complete an online times table assessment during the Summer Term. We will prepare children for this in school, but please continue to support them at home. We will be playing plenty of multiplication shootout in class!
Every Monday children will get at least one piece of homework, usually alternating between maths and English, but it may also link to children’s topic work. This needs to be completed by the following Monday. Spare copies and help is always available so please encourage your children to come and see me if they need to.
We have decided that children should bring school book bags, rather than rucksacks. This will save us a lot of space within the classroom; book bags will also better protect children’s books, homework and letters – which tend to get crumpled up and left in the bottom of rucksacks!
Thank you, and see you soon!
