Year 4 - 2

Welcome to 4-2

Hello and welcome to 4-2. 


I would like to welcome you to your new class page. We have made such a good start to the year with our fun and exciting lessons.


The children will have PE on both Thursday and Friday each week so PE kits and trainers are needed on those days.  We still have fun fit Friday so a PE kit is required then also. 




Monday: Every Monday, we send home English homework.  Ordinarily, this will take the form of a reading comprehension.  This homework is due back in school on Wednesday mornings.  We will also be sending home spellings every week, the test will always be the following Monday.



Maths: Maths homework will be set every week linking to what children have been learning in class.  This may be paper-based homework but could also take the form of being set on Freckle. Log ins will be in the children's reading records.



TTRS / Spellings / Reading



Children are expected to read every night where possible, with a minimum expectation of reading at least 4 nights.  Children are to read and comment in their reading diaries what they have read etc and then quiz in class when finish their books. If children want to read a book alongside their school reading book they can do so.  Reading diaries will be checked every week for gold stars.  There should be a minimum of 4 entries in the child's reading record, these records are checked in school every Thursday.
