I hope you’ve all had an enjoyable half term week with your children!
Welcome back to the second half of the Autumn term. I must also take this opportunity to congratulate all of the outstanding effort that went into the Roman Topic homework before half term. The class display of shields, Roman longboats and presentations is beyond my expectations. A fabulous job to one and all.
Values and Virtues
Our values and virtues for this half term are ‘Faith-filled and hopeful’. Year 4 are looking out for those who live out these values and virtues in our everyday school lives. The children will be able to nominate class members for their Faith-filled and Hopeful actions and words.
For this half term children will need outdoor PE kits and trainers. Children are reminded not to wear watches or jewellery and girls will need to take their studs out before the PE lesson commences.
Well done to all those children who consistently work hard to have their homework in on time.
Weekly homework in Year 4 will continue to be sent home on a Friday. It is essential that all homework is back on a Wednesday as the children will be marking this in class. Spelling and Grammar homework which is now going to be recorded weekly in the red spelling book must be back in by Tuesday.
Homework consists of:
· 1 Maths sheet a week
· 1 SPAG/Spelling activity which is recorded in the red grammar book.
· 2 Reading journal activities a week or more
· Daily reading record entries (A minimum of 2 a week – the more they read, the more house points they get!)
Please can you remind your child to take home and bring to school every day, their class reading books and reading record so they can be used during quiet reading sessions. Most children know how to change their book in school but if they need to change their book and they don’t know how, they must let me know!
I look forward to a hard working term with Year 4!
Thank you for your continued support and don’t hesitate to drop me an email if you need anything or have any queries.
