Hello and welcome to Year 4! During this academic year your children will be taught, guided and supported by a number of adults in school. We work closely as a team to ensure that we meet the needs of your children.
English - The pupils are taught in class and are usually grouped according to ability.
There will be a Year 3/4 spelling list coming home for you and your child to regularly refer to. These are spellings that the government expect your children to know by the end of year 4.
Maths – We follow the National Curriculum for Mathematics. The new standards are higher and we will have high expectations of the children. For example, ALL of the children should know all of their times tables by the end of this year (up to 12x12).
Homework diary/Reading - Children are expected to read, discuss and answer questions about their reading book every night if possible, even if it is for only a few minutes; 3 times a week as a minimum - every night if possible. Please remember to sign your children’s diary when you listen to them read. Please also use this diary to convey any messages to us if you are unable to catch us in the morning or after school. Any homework will also be recorded in these diaries, with instructions of the set task and the date by which it needs to be handed in. Usually, English is set on a Tuesday to be handed in by the following Monday at the latest. Maths is set on a Friday to be handed in by the following Thursday. Occasionally, longer, topic based tasks are set
PE - It is important that the children have the correct kit in school at ALL times. (White polo/t- shirt, black shorts, black tracksuit/jogging bottoms, trainers, sweatshirt and shin pads). Jogging bottoms need to be part of the kit as some of our sessions will be outside throughout the year. The children will be taught by Mr Wheeler for one weekly session. The second session of the week will either be taught by Mrs Lane or a Sports Coach from A Sporting Chance
Attendance/Punctuality - Our attendance is closely monitored. It is vital that all the pupils attend school every day. Holidays in term time are not allowed. In line with other schools in the Wolverley Pyramid, holidays are marked as an unauthorised absence. Authorised leave for exceptional circumstances may be granted dependent on good attendance during the previous twelve months.
