Love to Learn, Together with the Lord
Welcome to Year 4!
Class teacher: Mrs Kavanagh
Teaching Assistant: Mrs McVittie
In Year 4, we encourage children to read every day. Studies show that children make more progress when they complete regular reading at school and at home.
Reading books will be changed on a Monday and Thursday. Reading books should be in school every day, so that children can read to an adult in school.
Spellings are handed out in class and posted on Seesaw every Monday. Please support your child in practising their spellings, in preparation for their spelling test every Friday.
Multiplication is a vital part of the curriculum in Year 4. These are practised in class each day. Children are encouraged to practise their times tables each day at home on TT Rockstars, this is a great tool to assist your child in learning and remembering their times tables. Other methods are also encouraged.
P.E. this half-term is on a Monday. It is essential that children come to school in their full school P.E. kit on this day in order to take part. Please ensure that children have removed earrings on these days and that long hair is tied up.
Author of the term
Each term, to encourage the children's love of reading, we will be finding out about a new author and exploring some of their books. You will find out focus author for this term below, along with some of their books and links to webpages to share with your children to find out more about our author.
