New Teacher Letter for September
The school day starts at 8.40am.
Please do NOT send your child to school if they are unwell or have any Coronavirus symptoms. Let the school office know if your child is not attending and the reason for absence.
The school day ends at 15.15.
Please ensure your child is wearing warm clothes and sensible footwear. It is colder in the classrooms than usual due to windows and doors being kept open for ventilation.
Reading is so important!
Reading is a key skill as it affects all areas of day to day life. As a school we promote a love of reading and encourage children to read a wide range of different genres.
Recommended reading with your Year 4 child are...
We have at least two PE lessons per week - these are currently Monday and Wednesday. Please ensure your child's kit is in school at all times to enable us to be flexible.
We do PE in all types of weather so please ensure your child has suitable PE kit. In the Summer months we recommend shorts and t-shirt and in the winter long trousers with t-shirt and hoodie. Trainers or daps should be worn.
All kit should be clearly labelled with your child's name.
We are also skipping for two minutes per day, as part of Skip to be Fit and running a mile around the playground to travel the world.
Being able to recall the times tables is a HUGE skill and will have benefits across all areas of the maths curriculum. In Year 4 the expectation is that children can recall their times tables up to 12x. Maths fluency is one of our schools focus areas. Make sure your child completes their times table sheets each evening and bring them back to school the next day. This is really good practice for them. If you need any help supporting them with strategies to learn their times tables, please ask. Thank you for your support.
Snacks & Drinks
As a healthy eating school, we encourage children to drink throughout the day. Water is the best drink for children to have as it is the healthiest and if spilt does not attract ants or wasps! They can also bring in a piece of fruit to eat at break time. (No Sweets, fruit rolls etc).
