P.E:

Both classes will have PE 3 times a week (gymnastics, dance and outdoor games). It is important that your child always has their kit in school. Our PE kit is a white t-shirt, black shorts or to-the-knee leggings with pumps or trainers.

ICT:

Our first unit in ICT will be coding. We use 'Purple Mash' in our ICT lessons and all children have their own username and password so they can also access this at home. Please encourage them to go on Purple Mash at home where they can extend their learning.

Swimming:

Swimming is also part of the year 4 curriculum and is a Government requirement. All children will therefore be going swimming every Thursday morning. A letter was sent out at the end of year 3 with all the information you need and will be resent in the first week back. Please ensure that your child has the correct swimwear:

Girls must wear one-piece swimming costume (not a two-piece “bikini” style one) for the lesson.

  Boys must have regular speedo-style fitted trunks. Shorts and underwear are not appropriate.

 If your child has long hair, please provide a swimming cap for them.

They will also need a clean towel.

Homework:

Literacy and Numeracy homework will be given out every Friday and must be returned to school the following Monday. Detentions will be given out if homework is not given in on time. If you are unsure about homework that has been given, please speak to your child's class teacher and we will be more than happy to go through it with you.

Class Dojo:

Miss Hastie's class will be using Class Dojo which parents can sign up to for free. This allows you to see how your child is getting on in class and also allows you to contact Miss Hastie should you need to speak to her. Children can earn 'positives' for various things including reading at home, helping others and displaying effort (plus many more)! Please speak to Miss Hastie if you'd like any more information on this.

There will be a big push with reading and times tables this year. Please read at home daily with your child and sign their reading record. Children will need to know all of their times tables for a new times tables test that the Government will be introducing so please practice these at home. There are some fabulous dancing videos on BBC SuperMovers which will really help the children. Please see link below.

We are looking forward to welcoming you all back this week. Please don't hesitate to see your child's class teacher should you need anything :)
