Welcome to Year 4's Home Learning Page...
Welcome back to our new school year!! We hope you have all had a wonderful summer break and are now ready for the challenges and opportunities that Year 4 will bring. The Year 4 team are very excited to welcome you all back and get started!
Our focus book 'The boy who harnessed the wind,' supports our science topic of 'Electricity.' Our stunning starter will be a fun play session which will allow us to investigate how electricity works and how devices operate. We hope the children will have lots of fun getting to use some brand new equipment!
Our main platform for communication with parents continues to be Class Dojo so do use this to post messages to your child's teacher. You can also continue to upload photos of your child's work through their Dojo portfolio. We all love seeing what the children are up to at home & photos are a great tool for evidencing homework so please do keep using!
Any issues connecting or accessing these platforms, do let your child's teacher know. We also welcome any feedback as we look to improve our systems so please do get in touch.
School Day for Year 4:
Please note that KS2 gates will be open from 8:45am and children should come onto the playground where they can then go straight into class. Parents may come onto the school playground but we ask that you drop off and leave rather than hang about. This is to continue to support our COVID measures and we will review this as the year goes on. Children should be collected at 3:15pm from the classroom at the end of day.
School equipment needed from home:
Children may continue to bring a WM bookbag to school (not rucksacks). Please remember, children should not be bringing pencil cases, toys, cards etc to school. Please ensure children have an outdoor coat and wellies in school at all times. Now that the weather is warming up, we would also like children to bring in a sunhat and sun cream. These can stay in school as long as they are labelled of this makes things easier.
On PE days, children should continue to come to school dressed in kit. For Year 4, PE days are Mondays.
As always, if there are any questions with anything, please do not hesitate in coming to ask us :)
