Welcome to our Year 4 class page and an exciting new year of learning at St. Joseph's! We hope you have had a great holiday, and we are looking forward to seeing you when we all return to school on Thursday 2nd September. In the meantime, here is some information about our class:
These are given every Friday. Spellings need to be practised daily, as we do a test the following Friday.
The times tables homework is to play at least ten garage games on the Times Tables Rock Stars website (https://ttrockstars.com/). The times tables in the garage section of the website are chosen specifically for your child. The number of games that has to be played resets every Friday.
Information for parents: 2021 multiplication tables check (pdf document with information).
Maths and English Home Learning
Both are given out on Wednesday, to be in on the following Monday.
Children will be set a Reading Eggs task to complete each month. This website (https://readingeggs.co.uk/) is great for expanding their reading comprehension skills.
There will also be an additional homework on Google Classroom on either ART, History or Geography.
Please let us know if your child has problems accessing the internet so that we can ensure they have alternative home learning!
Home Learning may consist of more than one piece of English and Maths.
All children have a reading book and a reading record. Year 4 children read daily for at least 15 minutes. We ask parents/carers to sign their name daily and write any comments each time you listen to your child read, and also when they have completed their book. When they have finished reading their book, pupils are able to change them when they arrive at school each morning. The class teacher and assistant check the reading records daily.
Children have PE on Tuesdays and Thursdays with Mr. Hill. Please ensure children wear their PE kits all day in school on these days. No jewellery is permitted.
This year the children will have weekly recorder lessons. These lessons will be taught by a music teacher from the Kingston Music Service.
Finally, thank you for all the hard work you do at home to make your child's education a success!
