Welcome to Year 4. We pride ourselves on being excellent role models to the younger children in the school by modelling impeccable behaviour during lessons and when moving around the school. We love developing our writing skills by creating information reports, stories and poems about our topics.

Important Things to Know
Our P.E. lessons are on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Children need to come to school dressed in their P.E. kits, therefore they do not need to keep a P.E. kit in school. As a reminder, this is grey tracksuit bottoms (with their red shorts underneath if they wish), white P.E. t-shirt, grey jumper or school jumper with their trainers. Please avoid sending your child to school wearing earrings on P.E. days.
In line with the new Home Learning Policy, your child will receive a half termly Learning Passport.
This includes a range of activities, including some Maths and English that are set at the beginning of each half term. The teachers will set an expectation as to the number of activities to complete but it is pupil choice as to which activities are accomplished. The activities can be completed at any time during the half term; there is no weekly expectation for the activities within the Learning Passport. The children can bring these activities in (or photographs) whenever they are completed and they will be shared and celebrated in class.

In addition to the Learning Passport, children in Year 4 are expected to complete a minimum of FOUR signed reads per week, recording these in their reading diary. Children should also visit Times Tables Rockstars to practise their times tables (up to 12 x 12) at least twice a week.
Children are expected to use neat handwriting at all times when completing homework.
Reading books and diaries should be in school every day.
They will be checked every Monday.
The School uses a wide variety of reading schemes that directly link with the National Bookband Scheme.
We expect to see four signed reads per week.
Please **** NO NUTS ****
Children are allowed to bring in a piece of fresh fruit or vegetables to eat at break time and are encouraged to have a bottle of water in the classroom to keep hydrated.
If there are any questions or concerns, please drop in to see the Class Teacher or leave a note in your child’s reading diary. We are here to help.
Please see the Long Term Planning to see in detail what is taught in each term.
