Welcome to Year 4.
The teachers in Year 4 are Mr Sandell (Class 4), Miss Whitehead (Class 5 and Year Leader) and Mrs Plumtree (Class 6). Mr Silvester and Mrs Jennings are currently working with class 5 in Miss Whitehead's absence
We also have 4 teaching assistants. Mrs O' Sullivan works in Class 6, whilst Mrs Webb, Mrs Kersley and Mrs Percy will be working in all three classes during the week.
This term our P.E. lessons will be on a Tuesday (indoor) and Thursday(outdoor), however, sometimes we do need to change it. For this reason, we suggest that the children bring in their P.E. kits on a Monday and then take them home on a Friday. Swimming will also be introduced in year four on a Monday and Wednesday.
For indoor P.E. children will need a white or a red t-shirt and a pair of shorts.
For outdoor P.E. children will need a white or red t-shirt and a pair of shorts, socks and trainers. They should also make sure they have their water bottle in school so that we can take it out with us. During the colder weather they will also need a warm top and tracksuit bottoms.
Each week we will set 3 pieces of homework - English, Maths and Spellings. The homework will help the children consolidate or extend work that they have been doing in class. We also request that you listen to your child read for 10 minutes 5 times a week and ask them questions about what they have read.
English and Spelling home learning is set on a Wednesday and Maths on a Thursday. All homework is then due back in on the following Monday morning. As we are trying to develop the children's independence skills, it will be their responsibility to hand the work in on time.
