Welcome to Year 4! In Year 4 we strive to provide children with new and exciting learning experiences which they are fully engaged in and enjoy. We have lots of new projects this year and a few surprises along the way, beginning with 'The Great Kapok Tree.' 

Year 4 children should be reading 5x a week with an adult signature. There is also a homework to be completed in their reading diaries weekly. Buster Book club has started again (the children should be reading 20 minutes each Wednesday). Spelling homework link for each week is below. 
A few reminders ...
School Uniform

It is important for children to arrive at school in the correct school uniform from September 2019 onwards. Here are some reminders of what they should be wearing:

Black or grey trousers/ shorts/ skirts.
School dress or playsuit.
Plain black, grey or white socks/ tights.
White polo shirt or tailored shirt.
Burgundy jumper or cardigan.  
Children should be wearing plain black shoes (not trainers of any form).
Hair should be tied back with a plain band.
If earrings are to be worn they should be small, discrete studs. 
A small, simple timepiece can be worn if desired.  

Each child will need a named PE kit suitable for indoor and outdoor PE sessions. Our indoor PE sessions will take place every Monday and outdoor PE sessions will be on a Tuesday.

Indoor Kit:
 - Navy or black shorts
 - T- Shirt (House team colour)
 - Plimsolls or trainers.
Outdoor Kit:
- Navy or black tracksuit bottoms
- Navy or black sweatshirt
- Plimsolls or trainers. 
 For this academic year, we are focussing on spelling, reading and times tables for the children's homework. We are continuing to ask for parent support to read with your child at home. We are requesting that they read at least five times a week to an adult with a signature for each read.
  • Spelling rules will be sent home to be learnt for homework. The children will be tested on five words they have learnt and five unseen words which also use this rule.
  • By the end of Year Four, the children should be able to recall a multiplication fact within 6 seconds. Therefore we will be setting times tables homework to help them with this throughout the year.  
Are you Ready? Are you Respectful? Are you Safe?
These are the new questions we are asking the children to consider throughout the school day. If the child can answer yes to all three, they are showing the best behaviour to achieve maximum learning. 
The Year Four children will be given 30 minutes reward time per week to acknowledge their good behaviour. This will take the form of an engaging, creative project. Children can lose their reward time in 5 minute intervals if they are not showing that they are ready, respectful or safe throughout the previous week.
