Welcome to Year 4
Mr Dow (Teacher)
Mrs Smith (Teaching Assistant)
It would be wonderful if you could talk with your child as often as possible at home about making positive choices and discussing what they want to achieve each day. Also, reading with them for 15 – 20 minutes every night and discussing the book is extremely beneficial: this helps children enjoy reading more and gives them experience with a range of texts and a wider range of vocabulary. Finally, a big target for Year 4 is to learn all of their times tables. By the end of Year 4, children need to know ALL of their times tables. They have been given a times tables rockstars password so they can practise using this fantastic ‘app’ whenever they get a chance.
Children also have termly homework challenges and we ask that children try and do several of these tasks at home in order to support their Organising our week..
PE is on – please make sure children’s PE kits are in school on this day
Our big question for Y4:
Are we stronger if we are together?
This question will continue to feed into our work and focus to help us gain a deeper understanding of the value of others in the world we live in.
