Welcome to Year 4, Class Da Vinci, where the children will have plenty of new and enjoyable learning experiences and opportunities linked to our topics and curriculum across the year. Please use the topic tabs on the right hand side of the screen to find out all the interesting activities we will be doing.
The information on our class page outlines key information such as:
- Home learning
- Book bags
- PE information
- Special visitors
- School trips
- Parent/Carer letters
Children’s home learning will be handed out on a Friday afternoon and it should be handed back in on the following Wednesday. Home learning is alternated weekly:
- Week 1: Maths CGP Book & Spellings
- Week 2: Grammar, Punctuation & Spelling CGP Book & Times tables
Nationally, year 4 children will take part in a multiplication screening, which will be administered in June 2020. Therefore we will be practicing our tables regularly at school. To enable the children to be prepared for the screening, it would be beneficial for them to also practice at home. They can log onto Times Table Rock Stars, or there are plenty of other resources available online.
I have found the greatest support that parents/carers can do at home is: Reading collaboratively (15 minutes minimum per day), times tables practice and individual spelling booklet practice.
If the children have handed their home learning in on time, as well as reading four times a week with their reading record signed, the children are able to play Class Da Vinci’s Home Learning Monopoly game! Roll the dice to win many exciting and fun prizes!
As the children are maturing, they need to be encouraged to remember their book bag everyday. Inside the book bag should be their reading book, reading record and spelling booklet as these are used daily by both the children and the adults.
For Terms 1 & 2, the children’s PE lessons will be on Wednesday morning and Thursday afternoon. As the children are now in Year 4, I am encouraging them to take responsibility for their own PE kits, making sure they are in school at the start of each week.
As the weather is worsening, children need to have: black shorts or plain black jogging bottoms, a white t-shirt, socks and appropriate black trainers (no plimsolls please!)
Please see the Parent/Carer Letter folder for all of Class Da Vinci’s relevant letters and information.
