Year 4

 

Dear Parents/Carers,

 

I hope you managed to have a good rest over the Summer holidays. This letter is to introduce myself, the year 4 team and inform you what we will be covering this term.

 

Staffing

The year 4 team consists of myself and Mrs Scampton. Mrs Fullick will teach the class on Tuesday afternoons for PPA cover.  

 

Curriculum Overview 

This term our learning will focus around the theme of ‘The Railway Revolution. Next half term’s theme is ‘Our European Neighbours.’ Please find attached a curriculum overview which shows you what we will be covering in our learning. This can also be viewed on our Year 4 page on the school website. 

 

Physical Education 

PE will take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The children will be taught Dance and Multi skills. Please don’t forget that children will need to arrive at school in their PE kit on these days.

 

Home Learning

Year 4 are required to practice their weekly spellings and times tables.  In addition, the children need to read as frequently as possible.  We ask that you listen to your child read for 10 minutes a day and record this in their reading record. I will hand out spelling lists on the first Friday of each half term and put a copy on our class page.

 

Reading

Please continue to listen to your child read regularly and record this in their reading diary. The children should be reading to someone every day for 10 – 15 minutes. It is important that they have the opportunity to talk about the book that they are reading. 

 

Please note that every Friday I will be holding a Reading Raffle where any children who have read at least 3 times a week will receive a raffle ticket. I will then draw 2 tickets and those lucky children with the matching numbers will get to pick a prize of their choice.

 

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me. Additionally, I can be emailed at ljackman@stjohnstiverton.co.uk or you can send me a message on the Class Dojo.

 

Please make sure that your children have Wellies in school every day, bring on a Monday and take home on a Friday.

 

Yours sincerely, 

 

Ms Jackman
