I hope you’ve all had an enjoyable Christmas with your children!l
Welcome back to the Spring term. I'd like to take this opportunity to thank you for your kind wishes and generous gifts during the Christmas season.
Values and Virtues
Our values and virtues for this half term are ‘Eloquent and Truthful'. Year 4 are looking out for those who live out these values and virtues in our everyday school lives. In class, your child is being encouraged to nominate class members or themselves for times when they been 'eloquent and truthful', please encourage them to do so if you have noticed these values and virtues outside of school too.
For this half term children will need outdoor PE kits and trainers every Tuesday. 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 Maths homework in Year 4 will now be sent home on a Thursday. 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 Monday and will be re-issued on a Tuesday.
Homework consists of:
· 1 Maths sheet a week
· 1 SPAG/Spelling activity which is recorded in the red spelling 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 another 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.
