Class Teacher

Ms Bailey

 

 

 

Welcome to Year 4. In our year group, Ms Bailey teaches the children every day and loves doing so.

During this year, the children in Year 4 will be learning a wide range of skills, covered through the teaching of both core and foundation subjects. We are lucky enough to have weekly ukulele lessons which take place every Monday.

The Year 4 school day begins at 8:40am and ends at 3:15pm Monday – Friday.

Year 4 Staff will be out by the gate each morning at 8:40am if parents/carers wish to discuss any matters before the school day begins. This is an opportunity to speak to your child’s class teacher and is also a time where the children can have a bagel provided by Magic Breakfast. Parents can also contact school through the class email which is Year4MBA@e-act.org.uk. The new timetable is at the end of the page, so please familiarise yourself with it.

Home learning will take place through Google Classroom. You need to check every Friday for your child’s homework and instructions. You can communicate with staff through here if there is a need to. Please follow the link to access Google Classroom.

PE

This term (Spring) PE takes place on a Thursday – we are swimming: Could you please ensure that your child has their swimming kit, a towel and appropriate footwear and clothing to walk to and from the swimming baths.

This will change after Easter 2023. Please check your class newsletter and Google Classroom for updates.

In the summer term we will be learning how to play tennis, exploring in OAA and developing striking and fielding skills in cricket. We will also be developing team work and strategy within our Dodgeball unit of work.

Reading

Your child will be provided with a reading diary and reading book for them to take home and share with parents/carers. Please can you hear your child read every night and write a comment about what they have read. At the moment, we are using Google Classroom and Active Learning/Bug Club for children to continue their reading and log what they have read for teachers to access and mark. Please ensure that your child’s reading diary is completed each week.

Homework

Weekly homework is sent out every Friday and is due to be handed in through Google Classroom on the following Wednesday. Children will need to practise their timetables every night to help support them with their maths work in school.  We ask that every child logs into EdShed every night where they can practise not only their weekly spellings but also their times tables in preparation for the Multiplication check. Click on the link below to access all of the resources. There are some excellent websites that can support your child with these skills (see links below). Spellings are set every week for a test on the following Friday.

Pupil Representatives

We have elected some of our children in Year 4 to represent us in different ways within our school. They each help to provide a voice for Year 4 and represent our class extremely well.

  • School Councillors
  • Unicef Ambassadors
  • Opal Play Leaders

Parent Workshops

There will also be three reading breakfasts throughout the year for you to join us to celebrate books with your child. It was remarkable to see so many parents engaging in our Christmas reading breakfast and Book fair. Reading is the heart of our school and this made me so proud to be a part of this community.

What we are up to……

Year 4 have been taking part in a Paralympic Event where they learnt about how people with disabilities can still access sport no matter what their disability might be. It was a great insight into how sport is accessible to everyone and they absolutely loved it.
