As mentioned in each newsletter so far, it is important that your child is reading regularly at home. In Year 4, children are expected to read at least 5 times a week for about 10 minutes.
Please use this time to discuss the book and ask appropriate questions to further develop comprehension skills. Reading can be done independently, although it is still important that your child reads aloud regularly too. Please ensure that comments are added to your child’s reading record.
Reading records should be in school each day as they are checked on a regularly basis. and are used to support communication between home and school too.
Each Monday, children are introduced to their spelling focus and pattern. They will be given tips on how to remember to use the pattern and any rules that may apply. The children will be tested om these words every Friday.
Please ensure that children have their full PE kit in school, long hair is tied back and no jewellery is to be worn. Trainers may be needed for outdoor sessions (weather dependent) so please ensure these are in school too. This term PE will be every Monday afternoon.
