Children should come to school in their PE kit on their PE days.
- PE shorts or plain joggers/ leggings
- PE t-shirt
- School jumper/ cardigan
- Trainers that the child can fasten independently, or they can wear their school shoes and change into their plimsolls for the PE lesson
- Long hair will need to be tied up on PE days and earrings removed.
Children are expected to read at home at least 4 times a week which will be monitored during planner checks. It is still important for children to read to an adult, even if they are fluent readers. This will develop their comprehension skills.
Children will also participate in three specific guided reading sessions a week to develop a broad range of reading skills. These sessions will be based on a range of different genres.
Children will receive a list of spellings on Friday and they will be tested on these spellings on the following Friday. These will be based on the spelling patterns and spellings lists from the National Curriculum. Please encourage your child to practise these regularly.
Times tables are a highly important aspect of mathematics, requiring a great deal of support at home as well as at school. At the end of Year 4, children are expected to know all of their times tables up to 12x.
Children will be set weekly activities via TT Rockstars or Sumdog (their login details are in their planners) which they are expected to complete.
Please ensure your child brings a water bottle into school every day.
Planners are expected to be brought into school on a Friday so that homework can be checked and new spellings can be handed out and glued in.
