Welcome to Fabulous Class Four!

Mrs Cousins and Mrs Forster are so excited to be your teacher and teaching assistant. We really enjoyed our first term together including our exciting visit to Chester and getting to know each of you a lot better. We know that the next term is going to be just as busy and brilliant as the first one.

Homework, Spellings and Activities

Homework

Homework books are sent home on Wednesdays and expected to be returned to school each Monday. Children should complete one homework task, of their choice, from the menu each week. If your child struggles to complete their homework at home they can attend a lunch time homework club on Wednesdays.

There will also be activities set on My Maths, TT Rockstars and Spelling Shed, which the children can choose to complete to develop their skills and learning at home.

Spellings

Spelling lists will be sent home every Monday and the children will be tested on the spellings from that week on the Thursday. Children are expected to practice their spellings at home in preparation for the test. The spelling journal has a 'Look, Cover, Write, Check' grid for children to use when practising. Please bring your spelling journal to school everyday. You will need this for our spelling lessons. You can also use the DB Primary website and Spelling Shed to practise your spellings at home.

Times Tables

This year all Year 4 children will take a Multiplication Tables Check in June. They need to be able to rapidly recall the times table facts up to 12 x 12 as stated in the National Curriculum. TT Rockstars is perfect for developing those skills, and we strongly encourage you to spend time with your child accessing this app. For further information please do speak to us.

Physical Education

This half term, Physical Education lessons will take place on a Tuesday. Please note that some P.E lessons may be outdoors.

Class 4 will be swimming this half term on a Wednedsay.

Children are expected to have full P.E kit in school for each session and suitable outdoor clothing for any lessons which are outdoors. If the weather conditions are poor P.E will take place in the school hall. 

Indoor: white t-shirt, navy shorts, white socks, black plimsolls.

Outdoor: white t-shirt, navy jogging bottoms, school hoodie, white socks, trainers.

Reading Records

Reading books and a signed reading record should be brought into school daily. Children will earn praise points if they read every night and if their reading record is signed. We read daily after lunch time so it is important that the children bring their book into school to read at this time.

Gospel

Class Four are participating in Gospel singing this year, every Friday morning. Our wonderful teacher, Mel, is teaching us how to perform and show off our voices.
