Mrs Fisher and Mr Collin would like to welcome you to Year 4!
We are going to teach the curriculum in a creative way this year, learning through our topic themes wherever possible. Our topic for the Autumn Term this year will be The Stone Age. This will be followed by a short topic of Hertford
PE will be taught on Thursday and Friday so please make sure that appropriate and named kit is in school on these days.
We are planning to use our outside area often this year, so the children will need appropriate clothing for the weather – waterproof coats/sun hats when neccessary.
Home Learning will be collected in at specific dates between now and Christmas so that we can check on the progress that is being made, these can be found attached to the Home Learning grid. The expectation is that 13 pieces of Home Learning between now and the end date before Christmas.
They should read independently every day, and read with an adult at least twice a week. The children will also bring home a copy of their Arithmetic tests as they complete them. It would be very useful if they could discuss these with you at home. Any reading that they do should be recorded in their new reading record, where teachers will also be aiming to set targets every three weeks. This should be signed by an adult at home each week.
If you have any questions, please do ask. The best time to catch us is after school , however if you feel more time is needed please make an appointment through the office.
We hope that our new Year 4's can continue to grow in a safe environment that inspires a love for learning and a growth mindset. We are looking forward to a great year ahead.
All the best,
The Year 4 team.
