Welcome to Year 4 Cressida Cowell Class
Class Teacher: Miss Skerry Teaching Assistant: Mrs Radecka
Welcome to Cressida Cowell Year 4 class. Here are just a few reminders that may help over the year:
These are given every Friday which must be learnt and practised DAILY as we carry out a test the following Friday.
The times tables homework is to play at least 10 garage games on the Times Tables Rock Stars website. 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.
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 is great for expanding their reading comprehension skills.
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 reading record diary that they are encouraged to bring home and share with parents/carers. When they have finished reading their book, children are able to change them when they arrive at school each morning. Please sign your name and write any comments each time you listen to your child read, and also when they have completed their book. Children in Yr 4 C are expected to read for at least 15mins, daily.
Children have PE on a Tuesday and Swimming on a Friday this term. Please ensure children have their full kits in school during the week. No jewellery is permitted. It is helpful for the children to have their PE in school from Monday-Friday in-case it may be needed.
This year the children will have weekly recorder lessons. These lessons will be taught by a music teacher from the Kingston Music Service. Each child will have an opportunity to loan one of the school’s recorders so they can continue to practice this skill at home.
We really appreciate all the hard work you do with your child at home.
