Return to school
Well what a great start we have had back at school with the children!
They have proved themselves to be resilient and have settled back into the classroom more quickly than we had anticipated . We have seen and heard plenty of evidence already that they are happy to be in the classroom and are ready to get on with their learning. They have understood and adapted to the new rules and routines that help us maintain good hygiene very well.
They may still have some mixed feelings and worries about coming back but we will continue to try to help them feel happy, safe and confident while they do their learning in school. We will continue to allow for adjustment time, and plan in activities that will help them get used to being back in school as a group. We want to make sure our 'bubble' feels confident before we begin our new topic for the term : 'Baghdad'. In this topic we do a lot of geography and history learning while we find out about this very interesting place.
See you soon,
from the Year 4 team.
Return to school letter from Mr Frolish
Got a question or want to let us know something? The contact box below is a quick,direct way for you to get in touch with Year 4 teachers. If you would like to speak to us you can use this to request a phone call. We aim to check the email every few days during term time and to reply as soon as we can.
We also use the SeeSaw Class App to send announcements and share work and information with class families. We would like to encourage you to use this app as a way to be able to communicate with, and feel connected to, you child's teachers during a time when we aren't able to meet in person.
If you need a code to get started just let us know and we will get one to you as soon as we can.
Our weekly timetable. We aim to stick to this as much as possible however it is subject to change as we sometimes have to allow for additional events. We also may need to make occasional changes as we follow the children's interests and enthusiasms that arise as part of their learning.
PE is planned for Mondays and Wednesdays - children should come to school on those days wearing clothes and footwear suitable for physical activity outdoors (including trainers, warm tracksuit bottoms and tops/similar). Please remember to remove any children's earrings at home if they are unable to remove them independently at school.
To help with good hand hygiene each child can, if wanted, keep a named, personal-size bottle of sanitising hand gel in school. This will be kept in their tray for their own personal use and will not be shared with others. We can refill them once they become empty.
Year 4 homework consists of regular reading and times tables practice. We suggest a minimum of twice a week for both.
Times tables are tested weekly (on Friday) and the children can use 'Times tables Rock Stars' to practise and see which table their next test will be on.
They can also use 'Sum Dog' or further down this page are some web links to a couple of games we have used in class.
We also have a half-termly project that the children can work on over several weeks. This half term's project can be found below:
