Reminders

P.E. is now on Tuesday (dance) and Thursday (sports tournaments) - please send your child into school wearing full PE kit but consider the weather and ensure they have extra layers for playtimes, and during the day. Suntan cream or lotion may need to be applied in the morning. 

A swimming costume, goggles and a towel are recommended for swimming sessions.

Water bottles  
Please clean the bottle each evening and send in with fresh water daily - not juice.
This helps us adhere to current safety regulations.

 


Supporting your child’s learning

Our Year 4 webpage contains links and guidance to involve you in your child's school learning journey. We very much view you as our team. Without your support, our aims are harder to achieve. This can be done through practising times tables, spellings and reading together. 
 


                                        Reading


We ask that children read for at least 30 minutes five times each week. Books sent home do not have to be completed all at once, and we strongly encourage an equal amount of questioning to ensure the text and vocabulary has been understood. If you are not sure how you can do this, please ask and look at this link
https://home.oxfordowl.co.uk/reading/reading-comprehension/ .

We have added a document that contains recommended reads for Year 4 children.  We will continue to update this termly.  Please let us know if there is a book that your child has really enjoyed and wish to have added to this document.

We have found a website that contains a large number of book recommendations for all year groups.  It is called 'The Reader Teacher' and can be located at https://www.thereaderteacher.com. Please let us know what you think of the recommendations.

Remember that when your child has read a book that they can complete a reading comprehension quiz on Accelerated Reader
If you feel your child needs more books than given, please look at the Cheshire Libraries catologue of online books.  Membership will be required.

Mathletics and Online Platforms

Each week we ask that your child uses Mathletics and earns a certificate by gaining 1000+ points. Mathletics points are calculated from Monday to Monday so weekend working pays off. While some tasks may have been seen before, repetition is vital for learning. Times Table Rockstars is also a great learning platform for practising times tables.

The children in 4E will be trialling a new maths website called Freckle.  If this proves to be popular, we will extend this to 4J, too.

Spellings

As well as looking out for spellings in our weekly email, by the end of Year 4 pupils are expected to read and spell the words listed below. Please give your child the best chance at learning these by choosing a few each week and practising how to read and spell these. The Year 1 and 2 Spelling List is also available to view in the Documents section at the bottom of this page.
