The video above is to support the Year 4 Key Worker children that are in school. Please see below some extra information about the routines and key points now in school:

  • Parents, who are key workers, need to a book a place through the office 
  • Year 4 is only open to Key Workers 
  • Children will be in groups of no more than 15 (this is their bubble)
  • Children need to wear clean clothes every day 
  •  Please send children in appropriate footwear 
  • Sun cream needs to be applied before coming to school 
  • Even though the weather appears to be warmer - we need to keep as many windows and doors open, therefore children need to be in warm clothes (or layers)
  • There will be staggered starts, play, lunches and endings - please keep the 2 metre distance at all times
  • DO NOT bring anything in from home, apart from lunch and a water bottle is needed for all children
  • Provide your child with a healthy snack for play
  • Lunch can be ordered from school (no hot meals)

Homework

We want children to feel more comfortable with doing homework and for them to see it more as an extension of their learning, so…

Spellings

Each Monday your child  will come home with a list of spellings and will be tested on the Friday. Some may come for the Year 4 word bank and the rest will follow a particular pattern. Please help and encourage your child to learn their spellings as this is so important for their writing! Your child will also bring home a copy of their scores after being screened on the Year 1/2/3 and 4 spellings, which will show them which ones they need to practice (in whatever time they wish to use) before being screened again during the next half-term.

 

Maths and English

English homework – based on our class book or topic at the time, children will be given a menu where they can choose from one of 4 tasks to complete every 2 weeks, which gives the children the chance to complete a good piece.

Maths homework – children will be given a selection of tasks based on learning that the children have been focusing on at school that week. 

Children will earn raffle tickets for bringing homework in and completing it! This will give them a better chance of earning a prize from the raffle prize box!

 

 

Reading

Reading is one of our school’s biggest priorities! We want to see children enjoying reading and getting the rewards they deserve!

The Fab 4 reading records, as you know, need to be filled in 4 times a week and every week of the half-term so the children can earn the treat at the end of the half-term.

We also want to get Year 4 to the top of the reading league and earning up to 15 minutes extra play time!

We want children to read their own books, take books from school (that we’ve allowed the children to choose and order) and share them with others in the Year group. Nothing like a good book swap!

Please encourage your child to come and see us if they are struggling, we are here to help!
