Year 4 2017 - 2018

Happy New Year! Welcome to Spring term in Year 4...

I hope that you had a wonderful Christmas and that 2018 has started well for you. Parents and guardians - thank you so much for all the lovely cards and generous presents that you gave me at the end of last term, they were very kind of you indeed. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with your children so far; they are a wonderful bunch of fun and delightful individuals, a real pleasure to teach!

I am looking forward to our trip to Chester later on this term (27th February TBC), where we will be armed with battle shields and under the instruction of an actual Roman soldier. We’ll discover what it took to become part of the greatest fighting forces the world has ever known. We’ll form a testudo, visit the amphitheatre and museum, defend the walls and prepare for battle!

I’m very pleased to say that the Year 4 trip to Ingleton is happening again this year, from the 20th - 22nd June. The cost will be approximately £125 (based on last year’s cost), but further information will be given nearer the time. You can make payments towards this on ParentPay now if you would like to.

It is my aim that every child in the class will achieve at least one of our Blue Rainbow Challenges and be able to recall the times tables up to 12x12 by the end of this academic year, so please encourage your child to work on them at home! Spellings tests will remain on Fridays, so any help with which you could provide your child, I’m sure would be really useful. I will also continue to set English and Maths homework on Fridays, due in the following Wednesday unless stated otherwise.

It would be great if children could continue to be encouraged to read anything and everything as much as possible at home, please. As I often tell them, they may change their books whenever they are ready, during Guided Reading sessions, breaks or lunchtimes, or at other given opportunities.

We are still timetabled to have PE on Wednesdays and Fridays. Please ensure that the children’s names are in both their PE kit and school uniform.

I have attached a topic web for this term so that you can see the learning journey that your children will be taken on. I hope that this term will continue to be progress-filled and enjoyable for all. As always, please do pop over for a chat before or after school, or arrange a meeting if you have any concerns.

Thank you very much. Best wishes,

Mr Coates
