Welcome to Year 4 Class 8.
My name is Miss Roberts and I will be your class teacher this year. I’m very happy to have you back in school and I can’t wait for the exciting year we have ahead of us!
School is a little different this year and there are a few things that we need to remember.
Your school day begins at 9am and finishes at 3.15pm. Because parents and carers are not allowed on site, your teachers will meet you at the Burn Side Gate when it is drop off and collection time.
Lunch will be eaten in your classroom. You can bring a packed lunch or choose a school dinner. If you pay for school dinners your parents/carers will now pay using Parent Pay.
KS2 children continue to have milk at school. There is a payment option for milk on Parent Pay.
Dates for Diaries:
Wednesday 11th November – Flu vaccinations
Wednesday 11th November – Parents Evening
Friday 13th November – Non-uniform day for Children in Need
Wednesday 18th November – Odd Sock Day for Anti-Bullying Week
Monday 7th December – Christmas Jumper Day
Thursday 10th December – Year 4 Christmas Party
Friday 18th December – Inset Day (school closed to pupils)
This term we will start our week off with P.E on a Monday morning. We are thrilled to be able to welcome Tony back as your teacher. Every other Monday Miss Roberts will be putting on her dancing shoes and teaching you some moves in Dance.
Please do not forget to bring your P.E. kit to school. We will send it home every half term – unless it gets dirty! We are not able to lend children P.E. kits due to the current Covid restrictions.
Reading is super important! It’s great fun to be able to lose yourself in fiction or to develop your knowledge in areas that interest you by reading a non-fiction book. We ask that you read with a grown up at least 3 times a week. Don’t forget about the class reading challenge. If you complete your reading tasks each week you will gain a point for your class. When we fill the grid the class get a prize!
Homework & Spellings
As well as asking you to read at home, you will also have spelling homework. The spellings will be handed out each Friday and a spelling test will be held the following Friday morning. Practice makes perfect, so take some time to learn your spellings and to complete the spelling activity.
Times Tables are very important this year and you will sit an assessment in the Summer Term. All we ask is that you try your best. There will be optional Times Table tasks that you can take home on a weekend. You can also access Times Table Rockstars at home too!
