We are excited to introduce our new Collins Big Cat Reading Scheme to the children this term. Each child has a book appropriate to their reading stage. The books are exceptional quality with 50% fiction and 50% non-fiction to choose form. The children are really enjoying the new scheme and enjoying the variety of genres and material. We expect the children to read every night (one over the weekend) and bring their reading book and reading record in the following morning. The reading record should be signed by an adult and it would be most helpful if a short comment could be put in the book detailing what your child did well and perhaps something they need to develop. Children may also read books from home or from the book shelf in this time, but they must finish their levelled reading book and be confident with the comprehension aspects of the text before it can be changed.
Homework is set each Friday and is available on Google Classroom. Year 4 receive Maths and spellings every week. They will also have either English or an Enrichment/PBL based piece on alternate weeks. Homework is due in on the following Wednesday. All pupils have a TTRockstars login to practise their times tables. We expect the children to practise this regularly at home throughout the week.
For the Autumn Term our PE is scheduled for Tuesdays and Wednesdays. However, it is helpful to have PE kits in school all week for any last minute timetable changes. Please see our Uniform Policy for the correct PE kit information.
Unfortunately, due to Covid-19 restrictions we are not as available to speak to directly at the beginning and end of the day. Should you wish to discuss anything with your child's teacher, please email the school office and request a phone call. Alternatively, write a brief note in your child's reading record, these are checked daily.
Thank you for your continued support.

NEW YEAR FOUR 2020-2021
It was lovely to meet so many of the new year four children via Zoom recently. Below are the details we shared during the session, including the information for our fabulous summer project all about the arts!
Have a lovely summer break and we cannot wait to see your amazing work when we return!
How could you support your child at home?
In year 4 we want you all to aim high and be independent in your learning at home and in school.
