Welcome to Year 4.
The teachers in Year 4 are Mr Harber (Class 4), Miss Whitehead (Class 5) and Mrs Plumtree (Class 6). Also Mrs Jennings is currently working with Class 5.
We also have 4 teaching assistants. Mrs Lomasney works in Class 6, whilst Mrs Beattie and Miss Grainger work in Class 5. Mrs Kundi, Mrs Hopkins, Mrs Percy and Mrs Angell are working in Class 4.
This term our P.E. lessons will be on a Tuesday (indoor) and Wednesday(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 during Year Four.
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.
