Welcome to 4M and 4P
Our teachers are Mrs Moon and Mrs Mills. Our teaching assistant is Mrs O'Sullivan. Our P.E. days are Monday (4M), Thursday (4P) and Wednesday (Year 4 PPA). Please make sure your child's P.E. kit is in school every day and is labelled.
Since January, KS2 have changed the way that we teach reading in order to promote the high expectations set out by the 2014 National Curriculum. You will find that your child will now read in a group once every other week instead of once a week. In class we will be planning a cycle of group reading and whole class reading. Therefore, on first glance, it may seem that your child will be reading less, when in fact they will be receiving more reading teaching from their class teacher.
Your child will still bring home a group reading book and there is still the expectation that they read at home three times a week and with an adult once a week. It is very important that your child has their group reading book and reading record in school everyday, as they might be using these more often than just their reading day.
Mountains and Rivers
Our current Power of Reading book is 'Oliver and the Seawigs' by Phillip Reeve and Sarah McIntyre.
Spelling: Children will be given a list of spellings each week. These will be included in a weekly dictation. These spellings will be in their homework book. Spellings will be set and the dictation completed every Friday.
Reading: Children are expected to read, at home, at least 3 times each week. At least one of these times needs to be with an adult but please read more often with your child if you are able. Reading records are to be written in by the children (at least 3 times a week) and signed by an adult (at least once a week), you may add any comments that you wish to make.
Maths: Please practice the maths facts required for your child's current Maths Planet (more information to come.) Alongside this please continue to practice your times table and related division facts.
