Dear Parent/ Guardian,
Welcome to Year 4! This is just a short message to introduce myself and some of the routines for your child this year. As you know, my name is Mr Parker and I am really looking forward to working with you and your children once again this year.
Our topic this term is ‘Tribe’, which will focus on the Celts. During this topic we will be learning all about who the Celts were and where they lived; how they lived and what happened to them.
This term we will have PE every Wednesday. Please can all children wear their PE kit to school on our allotted day. These PE kits must be suitable for outdoor lessons, as all PE lessons will take place outdoors until further notice. Earrings must be removed for lessons. If your child is unable to do this by themselves, please could they not wear them on PE day.
Please ensure that the children bring their reading records and reading books into school each day as there are daily timetabled sessions for reading. The children will be given a reading day where they will be listened to by an adult. This may vary however on occasion and it is therefore important that children bring in their books every day. If your child finishes their reading book before their allocated reading day, they can see me to change their book.
Each Friday, spelling lists will be uploaded to our class page on the school website. The children will then be tested on these spellings the following Friday. Homework will be set using online platforms such as Giglets and MyMaths each Friday to be completed for the following week.
Just a reminder that no equipment, including pencil cases, are to be brought into school. We will provide everything that your child needs to participate in lessons. The equipment supplied will be cleaned and sanitised in line with WG guidelines.
Due to allergies in our class, please can you not include any food that contains nuts or peanuts in your child’s lunch. If there are any changes to your child’s dietary requirements could you please let myself or the school know as soon as possible.
Keep an eye on our class page on the school website for regular updates, photos and information. I hope this letter answers any questions you may have, but please feel free to contact me if there is anything else you would like to know.
Thank you for your support,
