PE will continue to be on Monday and Tuesdays for Year 4 so please help your child remember their PE kit.
You can help your child most be being interested in what they are doing at school. Ask him/her about his/her day and what they have enjoyed the most. It is very important that your child is reading for at least 10 minutes a day. The children are encouraged to take a book home from the book corner. Reading records will be checked on a Friday. We are encouraging reading for pleasure in Year 4, so your child should bring in his/her book everyday so we can all read for pleasure during the school day. They will also be able to take out a book from the school library every Friday. Please help your child to take care of these books.
Homework and spellings go home on a Friday and are expected to be brought back in the following Wednesday. Spelling tests are on Friday's. If your child has any problems with the homework, please encourage him/her to come and see a member of the teaching team before Wednesday.
If you have any questions about how to support your child, please come and see a member of the teaching team. We want to support your child to achieve the best that he/she can!
