Our Topic for Autumn 1
Maths and English Targets
The Year 4 children have maths and English targets (which are in the back of their relevant books). Please ask your child their current targets as they should know them.
Spelling homework will be given out on a Friday and children must learn the spellings for the following Friday. Homework will also include using TTRockstars, Mathletics, Prodigy, Dreamscape and Spelling Shed on a weekly basis.
Reading Books / Library Books
Reading journals will be given out on a Tuesday and a Friday and they should be brought back in on a Monday and a Thursday in order for us to read with the children and change the books.
At school your child will have the opportunity to read to a member of staff at least three times a week (including our guided reading sessions).
The children will also be able to change their library books once a week during our library slot on a Wednesday afternoon. The children may keep their library books for as long as they like but if it is not in class on Wednesday we will not be able to change it.
Reading, Writing, Reflection and Design Areas:
We have a dedicated reading area in class.
There is a writing area for two children to work at for extra work on things such as sentence structure, handwriting and SPAG.
We have a reflection area where the children are allowed to spend time reflecting upon anything that has happened in class or at home that week.
We have also recently added an art and design table for the children to use to sketch, paint and build 3D structures.
The children will be doing PE twice a week and they can come into school wearing their PE kits on these days.
The children may also bring in their own water bottles from in from home, but please make sure that they are labelled also.
If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me, either after school when collecting your child, on Class Dojo or by arranging an appointment with Mrs Lawrenson if it is something you would like to discuss further. Also, my door is always open and I'm always happy to chat.
