Year Four Notice Board

In the summer term we will be reading...

 We do have a set of school books but it would be really helpful if children had their own copy. 

Notices: 

  • Please see the information below about this term's RSE lessons.
  • Please see the blue link below to access the document for parents about the Year 4 Multiplication tables Check. We are busy practising in school using websites that have a similar design to the real check that takes place in June. Here is a web link if you want to support by getting your chid to do further practise at home. The default settings are the same as the check with 6 seconds to answer each question with a 3 second delay between questions. The settings can be changed easily but it is best if you stick to the default settings. https://www.timestables.co.uk/multiplication-tables-check/ We won't know what the pass mark out of 25 when the children sit the official task so we are aiming for consistent scores in the 20s - the children are making rapid progress so don't worry if their score is currently lower. 
  • If you need Covid-related home-learning, please go to your Google Classroom. Where possible, activities are being added to match the learning in class.
  • Many children are without a glue stick! Please ask your child if they currently have their own glue stick and give them one if you are able. 
    We are sharing the few sticks we have. If children have their own it makes things much quicker and easier in class. Thank you for any glue stick donations you are able to make. It is also handy if your child has their own pencil sharpener (one that collects the shavings) and a rubber. These can be kept in their school pencil case. 
  • Remember to send the yellow reading records to school every Monday - even if you don't need to change your book. Reading books can be changed any day of the week. We go to the Junior Library every Friday. 
  • We have now finished ukulele and we will be learning the recorder during the summer term, continuing into Year 5. Children have been given their own recorder to use for these lessons. If recorders are taken home to do practice, then they must be brought back in for Friday lessons.
