Croeso i Blwyddyn 4

Dear Parents,

A warm welcome to year 4! I am looking forward to getting to know your children this year and meeting as many of you as possible.  Some of the routines are the same as when your child was in year 3, but there are some changes.  I hope you find the following information useful.

Mr Hopkins will teach the class recorders on a Wednesday morning so a recorder will be required.  Recorders can be purchased from school if required at a cost of £5.00 or from any other shop or online if preferred.

Please continue to use the home-school books provided for any messages or questions you may have. 

It is really helpful if dinner money is placed in an envelope with the child’s name and class written on the front and placed in the year 4 basket in class at the start of every week.  Also, please ensure all clothing is clearly labelled.  The amount of uniform/PE kit that is left in school unlabelled and unclaimed is unbelievable.

During break time, children can either bring their own fruit or it can be bought for 30p in the fruit shop run by Year 6.  We encourage the children to drink water during the day and they may bring in their own water bottle (with name on please) or purchase a school water bottle from the office.

The homework set will virtually always be linked to what is being learnt in school; often research homework will be needed for future lessons. We understand that occasionally there will be times when the children are unable to complete homework, please put a note in the home/school book or a message via dojo to let us know. Children who consistently fail to complete homework will be asked to complete it in school in their own time.

Please ensure that any school reading books are kept with the home-school book in the folder and returned to school every day.  All the children will benefit from continued support, sharing of books at home and learning of times tables

Could you also provide your child with a small pencil case that should include blue, non-inky writing pens, pencils, rubbers and a ruler.  This can then be kept in school to make sure they don’t forget at home.

Our class author this year is Dick King-Smith.

As a school we are continuing with the ‘Walk a Mile’ initiative where children will be walking in order to improve their general health and wellbeing.  As a result, sensible footwear will be required on a daily basis.  

Many thanks for your continued support,

 Mr Morgan (Year 4 teacher)
