Year Four Classroom Information

School start and finish Times

The school Day for Year 4 starts at 9.00 and finishes at 3:15pm.

 

Break and Lunchtimes

Morning break is at 10:40 and Lunch is from 12.15 - 1.15.  Children can fall and get wet or muddy, so a pair of jog pants can be sent in to wear over their uniform during break. Your child can play on the all weather pitch if they bring in 'pitch shoes' - an old pair of trainers to change into.

 

P.E.

A kit consisting of  green shorts, black pumps and a white PE T-Shirt is required. Kits should be left  in school. These should be labelled with your child's name and  should come in on the first day of a new half term and will be sent home on the last day for washing. Please regularly check that the kit still fits your growing child. As PE can take place outside, a pair of jog pants or leggings can be included.

After Easter, we begin our Swimming Lessons, which are part of the PE curriculum. Please Note, The Swimming Baths have strict disciplines with regards to what is allowed at the pool. Please make sure your child brings appropriate swim wear and a towel.The baths have requested that long hair be tied up and covered by a Swimming Cap.Swimming trunks must not be longer then the middle of the upper thigh and should be close fitting. All jewelry must be removed and left at home.

 

Homework:

Daily: In Year 4 the children should read, practise times tables and learn spellings daily - approximately 20 -  30 minutes each day.

Weekly: Additional homework is given out and explained on a Friday to be returned the following Monday.  It may include handwriting practise linked to spellings as well as another subject to complete e.g. Maths, English or Topic Work. 

Reading

Currently, Reading Books are sent home on a Tuesday and are due back in school on a Thursday, to be quarantined before changing.  Parents are asked to complete the reading record and should question their child about what they have read. Children are asked to read daily  and read books they have  from home.  They are also encouraged to listen to audio books

Times Tables:

All Year 4 children in England sit a Government set  Multiplication Tables Check , which will be held in June.  It is important that children practice each day, not just to be ready for their test; but to help their progress in Maths. As the test will be held online, it is strongly recommend that children practice  daily by using Times Tables Rock Stars  All children have been given a username and password.

Spellings

A half termly spelling booklet is sent home for children to practise for a few minutes each day ready for their spelling test. The complete booklet of Spellings for Year 4  can be viewed & downloaded  here

 

 

Rewards: 

Individual children are rewarded in Year Four with raffle tickets. These are collected by the children per half term and the prize draw carried out out on the last day of the half term.

House points for children are also awarded daily and the total added up each Friday.
