Year 4

Year 4 Class Page

Welcome to Year 4. Mr Robinson, Mrs Peplow, Miss Bourke and Mrs Filepiuk are looking forward to an exciting new year, with lots of learning and exciting challenges ahead.

In year 4, you will be encouraged to become more independent in your learning by thinking through things for yourself, as well as being expected to organise yourself and your time more effectively. We anticipate that you will take on more responsibility for your own progress by ensuring you have all that you need for the day, such as; homework diary, homework, reading book, PE kits etc.

These tips will help your year get off to a flying start:

  •        Try getting into the routine of getting things ready the night before:
  •        Check your homework diary regularly to ensure that you don’t ‘forget’ anything.
  •        Ensure all work, including homework, is presented to a high standard.
  •        Take pride in what you do.
  •        Try to set an excellent example to others in all that you do.
  •        Read regularly – practice makes perfect!
  •        Enjoy the challenges set – aim high!

Please feel free to speak to any of us if you have any concerns or would like anything clarified. We will always make the time to listen to you.

Things to remember

  •        PE lessons are on a Wednesday with Mr Francis.  PE kits MUST be in school at all times each week.
  •        Spellings: Spellings will be given out on a Friday and tested the following Wednesday.  You will copy your spellings into your homework diary for you to learn and practice at home.

Homework

Each week you will have maths and reading homework. There will be occasions where you will be asked to complete a longer research or topic piece of homework within a given timescale.

· Maths homework: You will be set one test per week in your Schofield & Sims book. This will be given on a Friday, to be completed and returned for the following Friday. (Look after this book please!)  In addition, you will be given Mathletics logins to continue revising what you have learnt in class.

· Reading: In Year 4, all children will be encouraged to read regularly, both independently as well as to someone at home. You will be given a home reading book, which MUST be in school EVERY day. You will be allowed to change your home reading books on your specified day (Monday) if a parent/guardian etc. has signed the reading record
