Year Four


The Year 4 staff team
Class Teacher: Mr M Hasyn

Teaching Assistants: Miss S Doyle

 

When your child starts in a new year group, there are often lots of questions that you have. We hope that this information will help you and your child to adjust to any changes.  Staff are always available at the beginning and end of the school day if you have any questions or queries.

The children come straight into class after the gate opens at 8.45.

Curriculum Organisation

You can download the Year 4 Curriculum Map at the bottom of the page.

You will be informed at the beginning of each term of the topics to be covered. It would be helpful if the children could have access to a range of information sources to support these studies. If you have any relevant books, materials or particular expertise which would enhance any of our studies and displays, we would be most grateful.
Please ensure that any objects brought into school are clearly named. We would, of course, look after anything sent in.
 

Reading
In addition to the set homework, it is still important that your child reads at home on a regular basis. You can support your child by hearing them read aloud and by asking them questions about the text to develop their comprehension skills. Children need to ensure that their reading book and reading record is in school every day.  It should be filled in by you or your child at least three times a week.
 
Library
In Year 4, children may borrow a book from the school library. They will have the opportunity to change books regularly.

Physical Education
Although it will be useful for your child to have their PE kit in school every day, the scheduled days for Year 4 PE will be Tuesday and Wednesday.  Swimming will take place on Thursday afternoons during the summer term and weather permitting, during September.
 
Homelearning
Each Wednesday, the children will have their home learning task made avaliable on I Am Learning. This will be either be an online task or an email sent to explain what the task is.  Home learning should be completed by Monday when it will be checked.  Children will be required to complete their home learning Monday lunch time if it is incomplete. 

Water bottles

Throughout the school, children are asked to bring in a named bottle of water each day, which they can drink from in the classroom. These should be sports style bottles rather than screw top bottles. There will be a crate in the classroom for these to be put in each day.
 
Pencil Cases

Children are provided with a pencil case containing all the items they will need, so there is no need for children to bring in stationery items from home.

Named Clothing 

Please can you ensure that all your child’s uniform is named. Obviously most of the uniform looks very similar, so it is hard to return items if there are no visible names! Please can you also ensure that your child’s PE kit is in school on Monday each week.
