Spring 1 Message from Miss Bamber
Hello again from myself and the Year 4 team of Mrs Douglas, Mrs Bishop and Mr Wildhood. We are delighted to be starting a new calendar year and look forward to our new topics and the learning it involves. This half term we are excited to be learning through some great topics. We will be learning about ‘Vicious Vikings’, ‘Gospel’ music and ‘Under the Sea’. We also have both our Business Challenge week to look forward to and our class assembly on Monday 29th January.
Teaching and Learning Newsletters
Year 4's weekly homework is incorporated into the nine sections of the Homework Grid, presented in a booklet for the whole half term. The Homework Grid needs to be completed weekly and signed/dated by a parent or guardian. This will be checked on the same day as the planner.
The children are expected to read to an adult at home at least three times a week, if not daily. The planner must then be signed by the adult .
Spellings and Times Tables
Spellings will be sent home on a Wednesday and tested the following Wednesday. Times Tables will be tested on a Thursday.
