Hello and welcome to Year Four!
Our whole Year Four team is here to support your child’s learning and development and we would like to take this opportunity to welcome your child and yourselves to Year Four.
The Year Four team are:
There will be lots of exciting learning taking place this year, in all areas of the curriculum. Some of the things your child will be learning in English will be learning about ‘The Wolf Story’ and will be able to write their own version from a different character’s perspective.
In maths they will be learning about place value.
They will also be learning about earthquakes and volcanoes in geography. Black History month we will be learning about Rosa Parks.
Reading is very important. Your child will have regular reading sessions in class, but they would also benefit greatly from further reading at home too. Each child will need a book in school to read every day. We encourage children to visit a library to choose a book that they find interesting. Please make sure that book bags are brought into school each day. Your child be given a reading diary or journal. Please make sure that you read with your child every day and sign their reading diary.
This term there are spellings which will be sent home for the children to learn.
Please make sure that your child brings in a full PE kit for every session. Year Four will have PE on Tuesday.
For PE, each child should wear shorts, leggings or jogging bottoms and their ‘House Colours’ T-shirt. They will also need trainers for PE.
Year Four will be swimming each Wednesday morning. Please ensure that your child has a costume/swimming shorts, swimming cap, goggles and a towel.
Children should wear school uniform every day.
The school colours are navy blue, to be worn with grey, black or white.
A white shirt or white, red or blue polo shirt
A blue jumper, cardigan or sweatshirt
Navy blue, black or grey trousers or skirt.
Children are encouraged to wear a jumper or cardigan with the school logo on it but can also wear plain navy blue jumpers, cardigans or fleeces. School jumpers, cardigans and fleeces with the school logo can be purchased from Khalsa Schoolwear on Bethnal Green Road.
In the summer term, blue and white striped or checked dresses, or blue shorts are also suitable.
Parent Coffee morning
We will be holding a coffee morning for parents at 9.10am on Thursday 12th September. The meeting will be held in the annexe.
At the meeting we will introduce ourselves as a class team, provide you with timetables for the term, curriculum information for the year, and Knowledge Organisers which will give you more information about your child’s topic for this term.
There will also be an opportunity for you to ask any questions you may have
Please remember …
- to tell the office or your child’s teacher if someone other than yourself will be collecting your child at the end of the day.
- to write your child’s name in their coat, uniform and PE kit.
If you have any concerns or questions, please do not hesitate to speak to any member of the Year four team at the start or end of the school day.
Thank you for all your support
