Year 4A

Welcome to Year Four!

We are excited to start your child’s Year Four journey with them. The class teacher this year will be Miss Bevington-King supported by Mrs Metcalfe.

Throughout the year, we will be covering some fantastic topics, including, It’s all Greek to Me, Falling Forests and Rolling Rivers. Within these topics we will be participating in lots of exciting activities such as history, geography and arts and design. In the Summer term, we will hopefully be visiting YHA National Forest for a residential visit for our Rolling Rivers topic.

The expectation in Year Four is that your child reads to an adult on a daily basis. Please sign the diary and return it to school every day. Reading books will be changed once a week. You can read other books as well as the ones we send home, it is important your child reads a variety of texts.

Year Four is an important year for times tables. At the end of this year, we will be taking our Times tables fluency test and throughout the year, children will be tested weekly with the tackling tables tests that they completed last year. It is important that your child practices their tables at home as often as possible. They need to be fluent in 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12 times tables. 

Our PE days this half term will be Monday and Thursday. On Thursdays, children will go swimming. It is important that they bring a towel and appropriate swimwear. For girls, this is a one piece swimming costume and for boys, swimming trunks. Children may also bring goggles and swimming cap if they would like. On a Monday, children will come into school wearing their PE kits. Please make sure child wears appropriate clothing in the colder months by wearing their PE tracksuit rather than shorts.

Please ensure that your child has a water bottle in school. Please do not allow your child to bring in personal pencil cases, backpacks or any other personal items with them. 

We are really looking forward to the year ahead and working with your children. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask. We hope the children have a great year with us and thrive within our school setting.

Miss Bevington-King and Mrs Metcalfe
