Year 4 Autumn Term 1st Half Newsletter

09 Sep 2013

Autumn Newsletter 2013
Year 4 Autumn Newsletter 1st Half Term

A very warm welcome to all children, parents and carers who will be involved with Year 4 this year.
We have an action packed term ahead. We are starting with a whole school art project based on the painting ‘a sketch of the set for the Parade’ by Picasso.

There will be an exhibition of all our work in the large hall on Friday 20th September after school. Please do come along to look at our efforts if you are free!
Our topic this term is based on Children in Victorian times, so we will be linking our literacy, art, DT and music with this theme.
Later on in the term we will be visiting the Vestry House and the William Morris museums as part of our studies. Dates to be confirmed later.
In addition to this, we will be studying the effects of friction in science. In numeracy, we will look at place value of numbers to at least 1000, data handling, decimals and fractions, using calculators. We will also explore calculating, measuring and understanding shape.
This year, all the children in year 4 will learn to play chess, which will take place every week, for both classes, on a Wednesday. We will also have Multi-skills training on a Wednesday, where a specialist teacher comes to the school to work with the children. Please ensure your child had a suitable PE kit as these lessons may take place outside.
From Tuesday 17th September, both year 4 classes will go to Larkswood swimming pool for lessons in the afternoon. All children will need a swimming hat (goggles optional) and for the boys, suitable swimming trunks (not too long as they will not be allowed to swim - rules of the pool!)
Maths homework will be sent home on Fridays to be returned for the following Thursday.  There will be a homework club in Mrs Leftwich’s class at lunchtime on Wednesdays if there are any problems.
Spellings will be sent home on Friday for a test the following Thursday.
Reading books will be changed throughout the week and each group will be given their specific day in Mrs Leftwich’s class and in Miss Lloyd’s class, books will be changed on a day to be confirmed. Please make sure that you sign the home-school diary to say that you have read, shared and discussed the book with your child to ensure that they can be changed.
The correct school uniform should be worn at all times. If you are unsure of the suitability, please ask a member of staff.
Dates to remember: Friday 13th September-Orientation Meeting in Main hall at 9am.
You are welcome to speak to us after school. If you feel that you need longer, please ring the office in advance to arrange an appointment.

Best wishes to you all for a brilliant start to Year 4
Mrs Leftwich and Miss Lloyd
