Welcome to Year 4.
The teachers in Year 4 are Miss Maylam (Class 4), Miss Whitehead (Class 5) and Mr Finklaire and Miss Grainger (Class 6).
We also have 3 teaching assistants. Mrs Lomasney who works in Class 4, Mrs Martyn and Mrs Percy who work in Class 5 and Miss Traynor who works in Class 6.
This term our P.E. lessons will be on a Tuesday (usually indoors) and Wednesday (usually outdoors). Due to the Covid 19 restrictions, we ask that you wear your P.E.kit to school on those days. If the weather is cold, then please wear a tracksuit over the top of your P. E. shorts on Tuesday.
Each week we will set 3 main pieces of homework - Reading, Spelling and Maths. The homework is designed to help the children consolidate or extend work that they have been doing in class. The importance of reading at home cannot be underestimated and we ask the children to read for at least 10 minutes five times a week and then discuss their book with someone at home. Maths homework will usually take the form of either times tables tasks or a My Maths task. Your child will be given a login for both Rockstars and My Maths.
In addition to reading, spelling and maths, we shall be setting a topic-based project once per half-term. This project will take place over several weeks.
All our homework will be set on a Friday this year and will be collected in on Tuesday. Unfortunately, due to the new Covid 19 regulations, homework must be handed on on the Tuesday if children would like it marked by the time the new homework goes out on Fridays.
All Year 4 homework will be uploaded onto the school website each week, so that you can access it easily from home. We will also upload some work in the event of school closure or the need for children to isolate. We do not set homework the week before the holidays, with the exception of the summer holiday.
