Welcome to Class Four
Welcome to Year 4’s page.
Class 4 will be taught by Mrs Dolan and Mrs Simpkins and supported by Mrs Walmsly.
In class 4 we have a jewel jar and we can collect jewels when we are working well together as a table team and class team. Once we get 100 jewels we will get a class treat! The children can also earn star tickets for individual effort and super listening. Each Friday 2 names will be drawn from the box and a little reward given.
We ask that the reading record is handed in on a Thursday so that we can see how reading is going at home. We truly believe that being able to read opens our mind up to new ideas, creative imaginations and the learning of new vocabulary. Reading with and to children is still so important and so where you can find time or opportunity to do this it will really benefit your child.
Spellings will be given on a Friday ready to be tested the following Friday. Please help your child to learn them and you could even challenge yourself! The spellings will be uploaded onto Seesaw each week.
Each Friday we will take part in our times table champion challenge. To become a times-table champion, the children will need to work through their times-tables (up to the 12 times-table), passing the required time for each set. They will then move onto the Hot 132! There are two of these! In this test, they will have to answer all 132 multiplication and division facts, comprising facts from all the times-tables. Once you have completed the hot 132 your child will have opportunity to extend their rapid recall to higher number such as 14 x, 15 x, 16x, 17x and the inverse. Your child will be challenged to complete this in less than 7 min and 30sec to become the ultimate times table champion! Your child will bring home their test with a score and time on so you can see how well they are achieving.
PE is on a Wednesday and Friday afternoon so please make sure your child has their PE Kit in school on these days.
We are happy to meet with any parent if you have any concerns or queries and can often be found on the door before or after school.
