Class Teachers- Miss Timmins & Mrs Hill
Teaching Assistant: Miss Lambeth
Here in Class 4 our door is always open for any parents to come and see teaching staff if you have any other queries or questions. We operate an open door policy and will always try help answer or solve questions and queries.
P.E- P.E. kits will be needed in school on a Monday and remain in school until Friday, children require both outdoor and indoor Kits due to unpredictable weather conditions. Year 4 children will also attend weekly swimming lessons.
Homework – In addition to daily reading and practicing of weekly spellings, children will have compulsory homework. Homework is handed out each Monday to be completed by the following Monday. Children should also be encouraged to read a variety of books regularly. Reading books can be taken home by children and recorded in their planners. We are running our class 'reading race' competition this year to encourage children to read at home.
It is very important that children bring their planner to school every day. We would appreciate your co-operation in signing and reading through this weekly. Planners are checked and children are reminded if they have not been signed. Important information and communication will be shared through the planner as well as ClassDojo.

Maths – Place Value, Addition and Subtration.
