Year Four Notice Board

Notices                                                  

As you are aware we are visiting the Warner Brothers Studio Tour – The Making of Harry Potter on Thursday 1st March. The visit supports our work in topic and English, and provides a thoroughly valuable, and enjoyable learning opportunity.

 

The BHSA have kindly subsidised some of the cost of the trip and so we are asking for a donation of £19.50 complete to cover the costs. Please log in to parentmail by Friday 23rd February to give consent for your child to go, and to pay for the trip. If you are unable to pay the full amount please come and speak to us or the School Office as we do not want any child to miss out.

Children need to wear full school uniform and have a packed lunch with a water bottle. 

 

We will be travelling by coach and would like the children to be in school by 8.45am where we will register them and depart shortly after. We expect to return by 3.15pm however if there are any delays the School Office will text you of any changes.

 

Next week is Book Week. Please see your parentmail for further details.

Home Learning

Recent and extensive educational research has found that homework for primary aged children has minimal impact unless it reinforces learning and regularly allows children to rehearse and practise skills and facts e.g. times tables and spellings.

 

Reading

Children are expected to read at home regularly (at least 15 - 20 minutes daily) and to discuss their reading with an adult at home to develop language and comprehension.  Reading Record books must be brought into school every Monday to be checked. It may be that the Reading Record is checked more than once during the week.  Children are able to change their reading book whenever they need to.  Also children may borrow books from the Junior Library. We encourage the children to share their library book with an adult at home as well.

Spelling words assessed each Tuesday.

Learners choose which list to practice spellings from.  This is to encourage the learners to take ownership of their learning and make good learning choices.
