PE Kit information:
Term 2 Week 3: PE is on Wednesday and Thursday (but children need to bring either school clothes for the photos or the costume for the assembly on both these days please).
We have had an amazing start to the year. The children have settled in fabulously and are beginning to really push themselves in all their work. We are incredibly proud of each and every one of them.
The following term continues with the Ancient Greeks, learning all about what life was like during that period. This will also be included in aspects of the homework so look out for that.
We have really loved our science lessons, the range of understanding but also linking the learning to all other areas of life and education has been amazing. This term our unit is called 'Running Wild with Bear Grylls'. It is going to be an exciting term of work.
In English we will be completing our work on myths by creating our own about Wellingborough. We will then be moving on to work on our class assembly and The Flood. Many skills will be taught and developed through these texts as well as using a range of genres for our writing.
Maths, will begin with angles and time, then move through a range of skills. Children will be taught new concepts based on their prior learning. We will then be able to progress through the skills needed to allow them to achieve.
PE for 4VT will be on a Wednesday afternoon and a Thursday morning. We will be having ruby with coaches from Northampton Saints on Wednesday's, we are very lucky. They will be working on the skills of the game as well as covering other areas on personal development. Please remember that for now, children need to be coming to school in their PE kit on those days. They are welcome to wear a tracksuit on top to keep warm.
Homework will be set within the first full week and children need to aim to achieve the points set. Once they have managed this, they can hand in their homework. There is no need for homework to be handed in every week, just once the points have been achieved or by the date given.
Spellings will be given every week for the children to learn, these will be worked on and tested in class.
This term we are going to have some challenge weeks for reading. Children will be encouraged to read every evening, either to an adult or themselves. If they can get a signature from an adult at home, saying they have read, they can earn a reading sticker for their chart at school. This will not be every week, but when we can fit it in.
Reading is encouraged at every opportunity and children can earn reading award tickets for each book they read and are able to discuss. These tickets are collected and then one is picked out at the end of term to receive the book token.
Please check the class page regularly as we will share information, work and photos.
School start time: 8:45
School finish time: 3.15
Our year 4 entrance to school is the single black gate on Regents Street. Find yourself a footstep and wait until someone comes to get. Please stay with your parents whilst you wait for your teacher and remember to social distance from other families.
