Kindness Class

We are looking forward to an exciting beginning to the Autumn term.  My name is Mrs Brooks and along with Mrs Whittaker we will be teaching your children this year.  On a Friday Kindness class will be taught by Mrs Wade, who is very excited to be working with Year 4.

 During the first week of term we will be talking about rules and routines, Kindness (as our class name) and we will also be celebrating Roald Dahl day on Wednesday.  

Our first book for the Autumn term is Varjak Paw.  This book is an exciting story with a unique blend of mystery and mysticism.  The children will be preparing a news report on the main event of the story.

Spellings and Times Tables will be undertaken each week and children will be expected to learn them and will be tested on them weekly. Please encourage your child to use these words in sentences. This will help them use the words in context and also practise the spellings.  Both of the these tests will take place on a Friday.

Reading

Children are expected to read at home every day.  They are responsible for bringing their reading record and their class reading book to school every day and for changing their book when necessary. Please support your child’s reading everyday for 15 minutes and help them to record this in their reading record. Please sign the reading record every time you hear your child read.

Homework

This will be given on Thursday each week and will be expected back by Monday the following week. It will usually be a Literacy and Maths task. Sometimes it may also be topic based. Each should not take longer than 30 minutes to complete. Please encourage your child to handle their homework book with care and presentation of homework and projects need to mirror the high expectations of school work.

PE

Year 4 go swimming every other Monday and will also learn basic skills in netball on the alternative Monday. Bikini is not an appropriate swimwear to be worn. Boys swim trunks must not go over the knee. Please ensure that earrings are removed on Mondays due to safeguarding. Children must wear the appropriate PE kit – white top with black or red bottom for each lesson. Please ensure that all clothing is labelled.

Thank you for your continuous support, as we work together to help improve your child's academic and social skills
