Welcome to the Year 4 page!
Welcome to the Year 4 Page! We will be sharing our learning throughout the year.
Year Group Team
Year 4 have PE on Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday morning.
They must come to school with their PE kits on these days which must be a plain white t-shirt, a plain navy-blue tracksuit and plain white or black trainers /plimsolls.
Children must not wear earrings and must have long hair tied back. If your child is unable to independently take their earrings off or tie their hair back, please make sure this is organised before they come to school.
We are unable to use the water fountains at the moment, so please ensure your child brings in a labelled bottle of water every day.
Homework / Home Reading
Homework is set every Friday on Google Classroom and should be returned by Thursday the following week. Reading books are sent out on Thursday to be returned on Tuesday. Books should be signed every week. Please remember to log on to ‘Times Tables Rock Stars’ regularly.
