Greenmeadow Primary School

Welcome to Year 4

Our class teacher is Mrs Honey-Wyles and our teaching assistant is Miss Gunn.   

Welcome to Term 6! 

To continue making your learning fun at home we will carry on with weekly themes. 

This week our theme continues with The UK vs. Australia 


You might want to create your own term 6 topic folder or book of work. Maybe, take the theme further and create artwork, your own experiments, extra pieces of writing (poetry, stories).

             If you complete the tasks or any extra work, please email pictures through to our new class email shown below.

These can be shared on the school Facebook page or our class webpage.

Below you will see a suggested timetable of what your daily routine could look like

 

Class messages

Coats

Please ensure that your child always comes into school with a coat, especially with the weather getting colder.

 

Water bottles

Please provide your child with a water bottle every day. This is as well as a drink in their lunch box if they are having a packed lunch.

 

PE

During terms 1 and 2, Year 4 will be going swimming every Thursday afternoon, please make sure your child has their swimming kit in on that day.

We will have PE two times during the school week - on Tuesday and Wednesday. All children must have their PE kit in school every day to ensure that they can participate. We will continue to do PE outside once a week so please provide your child with appropriate clothing eg: tracksuit and trainers.

Girls need to have earrings covered and hair tied back. Please also ensure that children have their name in each part of their kit! If your child is unable to take part in PE due to illness or injury, please notify me in writing including the reason for non-participation.

Please have your child's name in all of their clothes and belongings!

Reading

Every child is given a reading book to read at home, they need to have it in their bag everyday. Please make sure that the reading record book has been signed to say that your child has read at home. If it is not signed we will assume that the book has not been read.

 

Homework 

Spellings are given out on Monday and tested on Monday ( In their yellow books). English is set on Friday and due in on the following Wednesday.

 

Spellings

We have reviewed the spelling system used currently and have decided to adapt it to suit the children’s current learning needs. The children will still have 15 spellings from the spelling pattern given out plus the 5 high frequency words taken from the national curriculum year 3/4 list.

 

If there are any questions, please come and see me or make an appointment for a time after school.

 

Thank you for your continued support!
