Year 4 NewsletterApril 2017

 

Dear Parents/Carers,

 

Happy Easter and I hope you all had a wonderful holiday. The purpose of this newsletter is to give you information about this term.

 

Our topic will revolve around The Vikings. We hope that you will enjoy hearing about what the children are learning and assist them with any research. As part of this topic, Year 3 and 4 will have a workshop on 7th June. A letter will be sent nearer to the time with more details but we will be encouraging children to dress up, so I wanted to give you as much notice as possible. If you have any artefacts/books about the Vikings, which you are happy for your child to bring in and put on display in the class, we would be extremely grateful for the contribution towards your child’s learning.

 

We still expect your child to read at home on a regular basis. We expect to see evidence of this in their reading records three times per week. Please encourage them to complete this as otherwise they will be asked to do extra reading at school during playtimes. This will help the children to reach the expectations of the New Primary English Reading Curriculum.

 

Homework in the Juniors is the same and will include: reading, maths and occasionally topic (which may be English based).Times tables and spellings should be practised regularly. Homework will be given out on Fridays and collected the following Wednesday at the latest. I am sure you will agree that we want your children to make good progress in all areas of their school life. To help with this, please ensure your child completes and hands in their homework on time.

 

This term our P.E days will be Thursday and Friday, and next half term swimming will be starting.

 

As always, if you have any queries or concerns or would like to discuss anything about your child, please do not hesitate to contact me in order to arrange an appointment.

 

I am looking forward to an exciting and successful term for all the children in the class.

 

Yours sincerely,

Miss Coates

We know it is very close to the start of term and we apologise for the short notice, but as you may already be aware, it is Roald Dahl Day on Tuesday 13th September. To celebrate this, together with Year 3, will we being having a day of Roald Dahl activities. We would also like to invite the children to dress up as a character from one of his books.  Please don’t feel you need to rush out and buy a whole outfit, just customizing clothes you already have with hats or other accessories. We will also have some bits in school for this day. The children have some ideas themselves.
