Year 4 Newsletter
Year 4 are currently looking at Kira Salak as part of the RESPECT curriculum. Kira Salak is a celebrated adventurer, journalist and travel writer. She has explored many parts of the globe and documented her discoveries and adventures. During this topic, adventurers will travel to the Democratic Republic of Congo, through Tanzania and into Kenya. They will be working together to experience of trying to free a captured gorilla and overcome the many challenges they face.
To help support your child at home, we encourage parents to read with their child daily! Frequent reading will enable your child to increase their language fluency, comprehension skills and reading stamina and will help with all areas of the curriculum.
Support with homework where possible would help enable your child to progress further throughout the year. Please take a look at our fantastic homework menus, which you can find on the school website. English and Maths homework is given out on Thursday and is due in the following Tuesday. We also ask that the children practice their times tables as often as possible to help consolidate their skills.
Another excellent way to support your child at home, is by practising spelling their high frequency words or practising the spelling rule they are being taught that week. Spellings will be given out each Monday and they will be tested on the following Friday.
We are enjoying our PE sessions with City in the Community sports coaches every Thursday. For safety reasons, please ensure that your child brings appropriate footwear for these lessons, e.g. trainers.
Swimming lessons take place every Wednesday morning. To ensure your children get the best out of these sessions, please send them into school with the correct swimming costume and a towel.
