Welcome back to school and welcome to Year 4!
Our curriculum will have lots of Reading, Writing and Maths opportunities, but our topic this term will be ‘Conflict and Resolution’. We will be finding out about what life was like for children during World War 2.
Thank you for sending in the fabulous Anderson shelters and Evacuee boxes which were created over the summer holidays. They are currently displayed in the classroom.
Please encourage your child to bring their book bag every day. Regular reading is a priority and any reading that you do with your child can be recorded in their Reading Records.
An important event in Year 4 is the national Times Table Test. All children in Year 4 are expected to know and recall all times tables up to and including 12 x 12. The test requires them to answer online questions at speed. Please help your child to learn their times tables so that they will be prepared for this test in June.

PE lessons will take place each week. Please make sure that your child has an outdoor PE kit (including suitable footwear) in school as we will take full advantage of good weather.
Spellings remain a focus and your child will bring their spellings home each week on Monday, to learn ready for a spelling test on Friday.
Homework will be uploaded on to Teams each Friday. Please encourage your child to attempt the tasks and “Hand In” their work each week.
Merits will be awarded each week, so keep an eye out on Marvellous Me for an invitation to see your child receive their certificate.
We look forward to the journey ahead of us,
Mr Richards (4R) and Miss Clegg (4C)
