Welcome Back!

 

Welcome back to a new school year! Mrs O'Kelly and I look forward to working with you and your child this year in Year 4.

 

Throughout the year, the children will be focusing on and studying the following curriculum topics as displayed below. Any help, guidance or assistance that you can give to your child to encourage their investigation of these topics would be very much appreciated.

 

Classroom Expectations

In our classroom we…

 

  • Respect each other
  • Are a team
  • Try our best
  • Celebrate each other’s successes
  • Learn from our mistakes
  • Create

 

 

Homework

 

Homework will be set online on a Friday and will be expected to be returned by the following Wednesday. Please set aside time and a suitable space for your child to complete their homework. Homework is essentially about strengthening the basic skills that children can use everywhere else in the curriculum and later in life. If there is a problem with your child completing the homework or you’re thinking you haven’t quite found the right way to help them please let me know straight away and we will sort it out.

 

Spellings will be put online on a Friday and will be tested the following Wednesday. To help with your child’s spellings, a technique which I have found very beneficial, is ‘Look, Say, Cover, Write, Check’

 

  1. Look at the word carefully. Pay attention not just to the letters and their order, but also to the shape the word makes on the page.
  2. Say it aloud. Say the word both as you would usually say it, and then again enunciating any silent letters, e.g. Wed – nes – day.
  3. Cover the word with a piece of paper or your hand.
  4. Ask your child to write the word down from memory
  5. Check the answers letter by letter. If they’ve got it wrong, let them write it out again correctly.

 

 

Times tables will be set on Friday and will be tested the following Wednesday. When you’re practising times tables with your child you are aiming for a fast response. Firstly, ask you child, in sequence, the times tables, for example: 2x2?  Once you feel that your child has got this then begin to jumble the times tables up so that they know them in whatever form they may be asked. Keep going until they can complete them all correctly and quickly.
