Class Teacher: Mr Thomas
Teaching Assistant: Mrs Brownlie
In Year 4 we have an exciting curriculum where we teach key skills in English, Mathematics, Science and Computing alongside the foundation subjects using a creative, theme based approach to learning. We will aim to go on a variety of visits and have many visitors throughout the year.
The children participate in a grammar, punctuation and spelling activities as well developing comprehension skills throughout daily guided reading sessions. We encourage reading for pleasure and the children take home their reading books every night.
We encourage children to bring interesting objects in to class or work they have done at home to show to the rest of the class. We also have regular circle time activities and lots of time to talk and share our experiences and news with each other.
Alongside reading with your child there are lots of things you can do to help your child with their learning at home. Some useful websites that your child could visit are listed below:
In Year 4 I have an open door policy and should you have any queries or concerns please feel free to pop in at the end of the day, catch me on the yard or ring to arrange an appointment at a convenient time.
Thank you in advance for all of your support.
Homework - Homework is given out on a Wednesday and is to be handed in on Monday.
