Welcome to Year 4!

We have had a wonderful start to the year; it has been great getting to know you all. Here’s to a year of amazing learning.
In the classroom this year your teacher will be Mrs Firminger. Mz Biczak and Mr Whiteside will be your teaching assistants.

You will bring your reading book home every day. Please read to an adult at home at least 3 times a week and ask them to sign your reading record. You will start visiting the key stage 2 library on Fridays where you can choose a library book to take home for a week. Library books must be in school every Friday.

In the summer you will take the year 4 multiplication table check. We will be busy learning all the times tables throughout the year. Remember to keep
practicing at home too. Your home learning tasks will be linked to times tables this term, please return your home learning folder to school every Friday.

Mr Whiteside will teach you PE on Wednesday (outdoor) and Mrs Firminger will teach you PE on Thursday (indoor). Remember to remove your earrings for these days. You have Fit2Go to look forward to in the spring term and swimming lessons in the summer term.

Keep checking the website to see photographs of all the exciting learning taking place in year 4.
