Thank you again for continuing to record the reading that is happening at home in the Reading Diary. I am checking regularly and house points are being awarded at the end of the week to those children who have read at least the 4 times during the last week that we have as our school target.

This page is intended to help you to feel more involved and informed of everything that we are doing in our class. Please feel free to make any suggestions as to information that you would like me to include on here that you feel will benefit both yourselves and your children. Thanks, Mrs Windel x.
I have uploaded our LKS2 Curriculum Yearly Planner 20-21 so as you can see all of the learning that we have planned for this academic year. This term's Curriculum Planner is attached in the files section, giving extra information on the learning that will take place during this final term in Year 4. I have also uploaded the Year 4 Overview for the Maths No Problem scheme, so as you can see which areas of maths we shall be covering.
This will be updated weekly, before start of school on a Monday.

Dates for your diary:
We will end this academic year on Friday 16th July 2021.
Our PPA is on Thursday afternoons this year, in which we will have PE & French with Mrs Riley.
Please can we remind parents that if you wish to provide a break time snack for your child it should be a healthy choice and not chocolate, sweets or crisps.
Our school PE kit is a yellow top, black shorts and pumps/trainers. For outdoor PE kits, please have tracksuits or jogging bottoms and long sleeved tops.
Please read with your child daily as this will have an impact on all areas of their learning. They have a Reading Diary that you can date and record their reading in. You may wish to write a comment but please do not feel that you have to, simply a record of what has been read is really helpful. Each child received their new Reading Diary on Monday 14th September, with their newly assessed reading level inside the front cover and this is updated during the first 2 weeks of every half term. Thank you to all of those parents/carers who are writing in them so regularly, it is very much appreciated.
If you wish to pass on a message to myself, please feel free to write it in their planner but please ask your child to bring it to me as we do not always check the planners daily.
This term we will be learning our spellings both at home and in school. The spellings that are set on a Friday are for your child to practise writing and learning over the following week at home and we will test on them in school on the Friday.

We use Purple Mash in school for our computing teaching. As a school, we have purchased home access for your child, and they will have their login details in the front of the reading diary. They are free to use this website whenever they wish at home, and sometimes tasks will be set for them to complete too.
