Weekly each child will receive:

Spelling List - a test will be given on Wednesdays
The children will be provided 2 books weekly, which need to be handed in on Monday. Please can they bring their reding books daily as they may be reading to an adult.
In addition, this term our CLass Author is Michael Morpurgo. Children will be given a term to read his books whereupon they will then use their knowledge to write settings and provided character descritions. This provides an opportunbity for children to read a lengthy piece of fiction and for you to share the joy of reading with the children.
This year the children in Year 4 will sit an external test on their tables knowledge. To help with their learning we are having a weekly tables test in class for all children. The school has provided Times Tables Rockstars to explore their tables in a fun and enjoyable way. Usernames and passwords will be provuided to the children to access this resource both at school and at home.
Thank you for all your help in promoting your child's learning and we look forward to meeting you on Wednesday 11th September at 5:30-6:30pm.
Mr Farmer, Mrs Rowlands and Mrs Lamb
