Kindness (Year 4) Class
Welcome to Kindness Class with Mr Jay
I am thrilled to have joined the school. I intend to develop the character and aspiration of the children within Kindness Class whilst enabling them to achieve academic excellence within each individual subject.
In Science we are studying Changes of State. In History, we will be studying Roman Britain. Please see the Medium Term Plan for more details.
Children are expected to read at home every day. They are responsible for bringing their reading record and their 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.
The children will be reading some wonderful books this term. We start off with ‘The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane’ which we will use as an example of writing character descriptions. Then they move onto ‘Charlie and The Chocolate Factory’ which is a great stimulus for planning the structure of a story. Throughout the term we will be using poetry to teach the children about using emotive and powerful language choices.
This will be given on Friday each week and will be expected back by Wednesday the following week. Homework will be set in their pink homework books. It will usually be a Literacy and Maths task. Sometimes it may also be topic based.
Swimming will take place on Mondays. Please send your child in on swimming days with their swimming kit in their bags. Be mindful to remember the swimming cap.
Thank you for your continuous support, as we work together to help improve your child's academic and social skills. Please do not hesitate to contact me through the school office or via a note with your child.
