PE 

This term we will be doing PE on a Thursday afternoon. Please ensure that your child has a PE kit in school.  PE lessons will be taught by PDS (Platinium, Dance and Sport) .

 

Homework 

Homework is given out on a Thursday and due back in on Tuesday. We alternate the homework between English, Maths, Science and Topic.

 

Spellings 

Our spelling test is every Thursday. New spellings are introduced on a Friday. Please encourgae your child to practise their spellings at home.

In school, we are focusing on the 'Common Exception Words' for the current year group and previous year groups where necessary.  These are words that cannot often be spelt phonetically and are most commonly used in their writing.

 

Reading 

Reading is incredibly important to us in Year 4.  School policy states that children must read at home at least three times a week in addition to any reading done in school.  Reading must be recorded in their yellow reading record book and signed by an adult.  We thank you for your support with this.

We will be awarding prizes for the children who read the most at home - who will it be?

 

Summer Term

JUBLIANT JOURNEYS
