Our focus for this half-term is Geography. Our' Understanding the World' focus is 'Rivers and Mountains'. During this half-term we are looking forward to bringing our learning alive by taking a trip to Ferry Meadows, please ensure you have checked ParentPay for details. Take a look at the knowledge organiser below which gives an overview of the theme.
PE is on Thursday and Friday, please come to school in PE kits on those days. On a Thursday Year 4 will be going Swimming! Please make sure your child has a full swimming kit including a swim hat.
Please make sure your child brings a named water bottle and their reading book and record to school every single day.
Reading is very important. Please ensure your child reads regularly at home and is changing his or her book on a regular basis. Children can access Accelerated Reader tests which they will need to pass in order to select a new book. They can also access these at home using their Year 4 launchpad.
Each child has their own car on the reading racetrack. Each time your child reads at home please comment in their reading record. Every Friday we will check how many reads they have completed in order to move their car around the track. A certificate will be awarded for every ten reads. The aim is to reach 100! A certificate and prize will be given for 50 and 100 reads. The children are very excited about this, please support them to read at home, so they can move their reading car.
Our whole school rules are:
1. Be ready
2. Be respectful
3. Be safe
Please ensure your child uses Times Tables Rockstars at home, login details are located in the front of their reading records.
