Swallows - Year 4
Welcome to Swallows
Our Class teacher is Mr Hyde and our teaching assistant is Darren Endean.
Our classroom is a busy learning environment so to help keep us all organised I have listed some of the main requirements and expectations for the class.
In Year 4 I expect all pupils to be reading at least five times a week. Pupils should be reading age appropriate books which challenge and stimulate them. If you would like any advice please just ask!
We also use literacy planet to help develop our skills. There will be regular work set on there and it can be accessed on most tablets and computers.
All pupils have their own log in details, if you need a reminder of them please get in touch.
These will be given out every FRIDAY to be tested the following week. Please take the time to learn and go through the spellings with children at home as they are an important part of building literacy skills and vocabulary.
There is a section on literacy planet called 'Word Mania' which is a superb competitive spelling game. It is free and available through the literacy planet website. Alternatively it is available as a separate app for tablets.
It is expected that all pupils know their tables up to 12 x12, in order, out of order and with associated division facts by the end of the year. Help with this at home would be very beneficial for your children. We are using the Times Tables Rockstars website to help boost our times tables which pupils have the log in information for. If you have any questions about this please speak to Mr Hyde.
At the moment we are only changing shoes to take part in PE so pupils do not need a full PE kit.
Our PE days are Monday and Thursday but it is good to keep kit in school all week in case we have an opportunity to go out at a different time.
This term in Swallows we will be working on our main topic of Healthy Living. We will be spending a lot of time out doors and looking at how we can be happy and healthy!
This will be sent home on a FRIDAY and collected in the following WEDNESDAY. I do expect that everyone completes homework if there are any problems please see me before the hand in date.
