'Learning for life, building a firm foundation.'
My favourite book as a child was Charlotte's Web because it was my escape into a funny yet
beautiful world of unique friendship. Obviously, animals can't speak (my imagination was free to explore the possibility).
My favourite book as a child was was Watership Down by Richard Adams. I loved it because it was a story of rabbits (I had a pet rabbit called Flopsy) and the journey they had to go on to find a new home. I liked Hazel the best, she was the unsung hero of the adventure.
In Year 4, we are encouraging our children to read every day. We will be asking your child to read every day to an adult or sibling at home for at least 10 minutes. This is not only to increase reading skills such as decoding, fluency, comprehension and vocabulary but to encourage a love of reading. Please help us by signing and dating their Reading Diary each day.
Can you please ensure that your child brings in their Reading Diary on Monday, if they are in the middle of reading a book or have a book at home they want to read – bring that in too. We are happy to provide a reading book from school but it must be looked after and returned when read.
Alongside reading at home, we will be reading lots of exciting books in class and in the school grounds as well as having Drop Everything And Read (DEAR) time.
Homework is set weekly online each week on Purple Mash. The homework is set on Wednesday and due in by Tuesday. Spelling tests are on Wednesday. If you have any questions, please speak to an adult in Year 4.
P.E. is taught on Wednesday afternoon and swimming is on Friday morning. Please ensure your child has a complete P.E. kit for these lessons.
Our class assembly will be on Thursday 21st March 2024
