You can help your child by

  • Continuing to practise their Maths passport objectives with them and revise all their times tables knowledge.

  • Listening to them read at least three times a week. Please make sure you also sign their planner when they have read. It's also really beneficial when you read to your child.

  • Practise their spelling skills. They have spellings in their planners that they should learn. Generally these spellings are grouped and relate to a particular spelling pattern or rule.

  • Ensuring that they have got their PE kit on Wednesday. All classes have PE at different times on the same day. They should bring their PE kit on Wednesday and take it home that day. This half term they will be doing football, so they can bring a tracksuit in case of cold weather.

Learning Log

The Year 4 staff have been very impressed with the A -Z of interests. Please keep encouraging and supporting your child with this homework, which is due in on Thursdays. We love finding out what they've researched every wee and are much more knowledgeable after we've read them.
