Year 4 2021 - 2022
Welcome to Y4 with Mr Greaves, Mrs Hurst and Miss Green
Here are a few reminders of some of the routines in Year 4:
We won't be having the usual 'Meet the Teacher' afternoons for parents/carers this year. There has been a link sent out containing a video that explains our expectations for the year regarding reading, curriculum content, assessment, etc. It is roughly around about half an hour long and can be accessed via the link below:
Please take a moment to have a watch/ read and, if you’ve any questions, don’t hesitate to give me a call via the school office - please do not approach the classroom door.
Start and Finish Times
8:50 am- children to enter school grounds
8:55 am - school begins
3:15 pm - school ends - children collected from the playground or path at the front of school
Please can I remind you that all reading is to be logged into your child's reading journal by parents in time for Monday morning, when Mrs Hurst will be checking everyone's reading progress over the previous week.
Please note that your child is required to read at least 4 times during the week - for a minimum of 20-25 minutes each time, with support from an adult. Our 7-day ‘reading week’ runs from Monday to Sunday. This can be a simple log on a piece of paper or a screen shot. Like I said – whichever works best for you, as long as it shows evidence of your child’s reading, I'm happy! Please note that I do not need or request daily updates or pictures of your child's reading
Remember, reading at least 4 times each week earns you extra Dojos and Dojos = prizes! Those children who do not provide evidence of reading each Monday will be required to read through their play times until evidence has been provided.
Our PE afternoon is on a Tuesday, each week (unless I instruct the children differently) . It is important that each Tuesday, children come into school wearing a games kit (jogging pants/leggings, their P.E. top and their school jumper - shorts and vests can be worn underneath their games' kit in the event of it being a hot day. This is to lessen the need to bring things to and from school and therefore help us to minimise the chances of spreading infection. P.E. pumps will stay in school (in a bag on your child’s peg – please clearly label this).
Remember that pumps are a part of our school uniform and must be worn for P.E. We will only allow trainers which have a completely white sole – any trainers with different colours or markings on their sole are strictly forbidden as they can cause irreversible damage to the hall floor.
This year, children in Year 4 will be taking part in swimming lessons at the Ashton Leisure Centre after the Easter break. In the event of another lockdown however, swimming lessons will cease until further notice. Parents will receive an email in good time, should the these arrangemnents change.
There are plans being made for our class to visit Scotmans Flash to take part in a variety of water-based activities, including kayaking, canoeing, raft-building, etc. after the autumn half-term break. Again, parents will receive an email in good time, containing any important information that you may need to know or if there are any changes to arrangemnents.
School will provide a water bottle for your child - this will be kept in school and refilled throughout the day.
Our whole school Celebration Assemblies are now on Friday mornings. You will be informed of your child's success via School Spider/ email, should your child be receiving an award that week.
Tuck money is paid for electronically through the School Spider app. Please see the ' Meet the Teacher' video for futher guidance, or speak to a member of our office staff.
*If there is anything else that you wish to ask about, please contact the school office and leave me a message - I will get back to you as soon as I can.
