Class 4 2023 - 2024
Autumn 2 Information
Well we are back from Robinwood and the children had an amazing time! They challenged themselves and conquered all of the activities. What an intrepid and brave bunch of children they are - I am so proud of them!
I have updated the curriculum information below.
PE stays on the same days but we are now doing inside activities.
As for last term, you will be having Mrs Jackson to teach Spanish and ICT, and you will have Mrs Walker to teach Art and RE.
Homework: We are moving onto a new online system called Atom Prime. Details of this will follow shortly. As before, the homework will be set on a Friday and be due in the following Wednesday. I do not send a set list of spelling words to be learned and tested. However, the children will bring home a list of words connected to the spelling rule that we are learning each week. They will then have a spelling assessments at the end of each half term which will contain words from the rules/patterns they have learned. I have attached two documents that are the spelling overview for the two Autumn terms.
Children are also expected to read at home most days for between 10 - 20 minutes. This will build their 'reading miles' which has multiple benefits for their Literacy plus have a positive effect on other subjects. Please could you encourage your child to do this or, even better, read with them. They are not too old for this and it is a great way to discuss the books that they are reading which, in turn, will help with their comprehension skills. Please have a look at the tips on reading for pleasure at home (document below).
It is very important that your child reads books from different genres. Here is a link to a website that lists suitable books by age but it also gives details of the genre for each book. If your child reads similar style books by the same author, they will not be exposed to the range of vocabulary needed to progress effectively with their reading. https://schoolreadinglist.co.uk/category/reading-lists-for-ks2-school-pupils/
Multiplication Tables Check: This is a formal assessment that happens at the beginning of June. The children will be tested on their times tables up to 12 x 12. All children will take the test using an Ipad. Their is no set pass mark. However, secure and rapid knowledge of times tables facts are beneficial in many of the areas of maths taught in KS2 and therefore will help the children as they move towards their end of KS2 SATS. See the above tab for more information.
Your children have settled well into Year 4 and we are now really getting into the swing of the new curriculum and demands of being in a higher year group. Well done to you all!
As always, please feel free to contact me via email if you need advice or help with anything.
