Year 4 – Goldcrest

Goldcrest class have been enjoying Year 4 so far and are getting to know their new teacher Miss Spain, and teaching assistant Mrs Grover.
This term we are excited to be learning all about Italy in Geography and Art. Later on in the term we will be making our own volcanoes linked to our Science topic, Changes of State.
In our PE lessons, we are very lucky to have a coach from Fulham football club coming into school on Mondays. We are also excited for our swimming lessons which will be held on Wednesdays. Please ensure that the children have the correct kit in school for both PE lessons.
Homework  Please read with your children regularly. Many of the children in Year 4 are able readers but frequent practice and discussion of books will help them with their comprehension. This is a key skill to help children in Year 4 move forward in their learning.  The children will be receiving spelling homework every Monday. They will be given the ‘look, copy, cover and write’ sheets in order to assist them with this. Pupils will be tested the following week.
 The children will be sent home with a homework folder and book. Every Wednesday they will receive either Maths or English homework. Please ensure that you read through the task with your child before Friday so that we can explain anything they don’t understand before the weekend. The homework is collected in on Monday.
