Year 4 2017 - 2018

Mr Coates

Mrs Gardiner

Welcome to Autumn term in Year 4...

I am very pleased to have inherited such a fantastic class from Miss Griffiths. We are lucky enough during three mornings a week to have the help of the brilliant Mrs Gardiner, whom the class know well from last year. We are also fortunate to have Mme Carter teaching French and Mr Curran leading half of our PE sessions.

We will be having weekly times tables tests on Thursdays and spellings tests on Fridays, so any help with which you could provide your child would, I’m sure, be greatly beneficial. I will set Spellings, Literacy and Maths homework on Fridays. These will be due in the following Wednesday (unless a creative homework has been set, in which case, extra time will be allowed).

In my opinion, regular reading is a vital key to unlocking children's success in Literacy, so Mrs Gardiner and I will do our best to hear the children often. If they could please be encouraged to read at home and have their red Reading Diaries signed, that would be brilliant. Your child can change their book whenever they are ready; we will give opportunities within school time for them to do this.

We are timetabled to have PE on Wednesdays and Fridays, but it would be useful if children kept their kit in school each day, in case of hall time swaps. Please ensure that both your child’s PE kit and school uniform is clearly labelled with their name.

I will aim to make the lessons that I teach challenging, informative and enjoyable. I am a very active, artistic and positive person, so as well as developing your child’s academic skills, I want to facilitate activities that will enhance their creative skills and interests. With your support and cooperation, I hope that this year will be wonderful, productive and successful for your child; fun-filled as well as educational.

I can’t wait to take Year 4 to Ingleton for their residential in Summer Term (20th – 22nd June). We also have our imminent trip to Noddfa (21st September) to be excited for as well.

On Monday 18th September, I will hold a brief and informal chat in our classroom from 5pm. This will be a time when you can have a look at your child’s learning environment, ask me any questions about this academic year, or just say hello! Please do not worry if you cannot make this time; all the information that will be shared is provided on this letter. Parents’ evenings will be held on 18th and 19th October, where you will be able to make an individual appointment to discuss your child. Do feel free to pop over before or after school, or speak to me if you have any issues or concerns.

I am looking forward to building on the great start made.

Here's our Anti-Bullying rap for you to enjoy...
