Try and read every night to support your reading abilities further.
Times Tables are essential in Year 4 so try and go over them in your free time.
Don't forget your weekly spellings. Tests are on a Tuesday morning.
PE kits are are to be worn to school on PE days.
Homework & PE Days
Reading: All children should read for at least 15 minutes daily. Please talk to your child about what they have read at school.
Spellings: The children are set spellings on a Wednesday, these should be practiced every day ready for the following week, when they will be tested.
Maths: Children need to be learning their times tables throughout the year, so practicing at home is a great idea. By the end of Year 4, we aim to know all the times tables up to 12X12.
Here is a helpful reminder for the week:
Tuesday: Spelling Test, PE Kits to be worn into school
Wednesday: PE Kits to be worn into school
Friday: Times Table Test
Your child will need their named PE kit, including blue/black shorts, white t-shirt and trainers and for safety reasons please remember that long hair needs to be tied back and earrings should not be worn. We will be taking part in outdoor games for PE, so we are likely to go out when it is cold/damp, so appropriate jogging bottoms and fleece/top will be needed. Please ensure all these items are named.
Health and Attendance
Regular attendance at school is vital for your child’s education.
If your child is absent from school for any reason school needs to know. Please telephone the school by 9.15 a.m. on the first day of absence.
We need to know the reason (as schools are required to distinguish between authorised and unauthorised absence of pupils) and how long your child is likely to be off. Please ask your Doctor for advice regarding how long your child should be kept off school.
If medicine is prescribed, arrangements can only be made for the administration in school if the dosage is x4 daily. Parents are asked to complete a request form and all medicines must be handed to Mrs McCrossin, in the original packaging, clearly labelled with date, contents, pupil’s name and dosage.
Our Family Support Worker in conjunction with our Education Welfare Officer is always available to give advice if required.
