Times Table practise
In year 4, the recall of multiplication facts are very important. We encourage you to practise regularly with your child, from x2 up to x12 tables. Here are some websites you could use;
It is a government expectation that all children, by the end of Year 4, know all of their times table facts, so it will give your children a great advantage if they can practise them as often as they can.
We would like your children to read their school reading book at least three times a week. Children will receive a ‘book worm’ certificate weekly for regular reading. We also encourage the children to read books of their own choosing for pleasure.
The children will be expected to complete pre-learning tasks ahead of a topic. This will give them an advantage, and enable them to progress more quickly, with a greater depth of understanding. The children have a red scrap book for recording this information. The children may also be asked to do further research or practice ahead of certain lessons.
Spellings – The children have now had the opportunity to learn to spell all the year 3/4 words. Future spellings will continue to focus on these words. However, the children will also be given tasks to help with the application of these words.
Rowan Class Weekly Spellings
Our P.E days are, usually, on Mondays and Fridays. Please make sure that your child has their full indoor/outdoor P.E kit in school. Please also ensure that your child does not wear ear rings if they are unable to remove them themselves.
If your child requires medical attention in school please contact Mrs Nicholls and complete the relevant forms to keep school updated, and keep your child safe in school. Please complete the yearly data form to advise school of any allergies or medical conditions that your child may have.
