Welcome to Class 4
PE for this half-term is on Friday. Please ensure you have your P.E. Kit in school.
Hello, my name is Miss Douglas and I will be your child's teacher in Year 4 and Mrs Southern will be your child's teaching assistant.
Year 4 is a very important and busy year for your child as they prepare to move to upper key stage 2. My aim as class teacher is to create a nurturing, supportive environment and encourage children's independence and confidence as they prepare to move on in their learning. Our classroom is a stimulating environment which motivates children to work hard and make progress whilst having fun.
It is important that all children have their reading books in school every day and that weekly spellings are learnt at home. Furthermore, children will have 'project homework' where they will have to choose one section to complete each week into their homework journal. If children have lost their homework there will always be spares, so feel free to ask. There will be weekly spelling and times tables tests held on Friday as well.
We encourage the children to complete their homework as it consolidates the work we have been doing in class and their spellings for their test are part of the homework, which is to be given out on Friday. All homework is to be given in by Wednesday so that it can be marked and given back out for Friday.
This year, we are taking part in the Multiplications check trial, which will become mandatory as of next year. The multiplication tables check is designed to help ensure children in primary school know their times tables up to 12 off by heart. As well as being critical for everyday life, knowledge of multiplication tables helps children to solve problems quickly and flexibly, and allows them to tackle more complex mathematics later on in school.
