Year 4 2019 - 2020

Miss Kerrison

Welcome to Year 4!

This year the teaching staff are:

 4D - Mr Dean and Miss Shelmani  

 4K – Miss Kerrison and Mr Foster

 

Welcome to Year 4 at Ashbury Meadow! Here you will find information on what the children are learning about in the Autumn term. 

  • Children will need their swimming kit on Mondays.
  • Children will need their PE kit on Tuesdays. Please make sure your child comes to school wearing their school uniform. They will be given time during the school day to get changed. 

 

All of the children are given home reading books to read at home. We would appreciate it if you could continue to listen to your child reading at home for ten minutes per night and ask your child questions about the text they have read. Having an adult or older sibling listen to them reading will benefit your child immensely and help them to make excellent progress in reading. Please make comments about your child’s reading and sign your child’s home reading diary each night and similarly, we shall make comments back. Home reading diaries are excellent ways of communicating progress/concerns regarding your child’s reading between parents/guardians and staff in school and we look forward to using them effectively with you. Reading Records should be in school every day as children will regularly be able to change their home reading books.

 

Times tables

It is important for the children to also practice and embed their times tables and division facts up to 12 x 12 at home! Children will continue to use Times Table Rockstars in school and at home. Completing Times Table Rockstars activities daily will greatly enhance and assist their learning in school. At the end of the year, Year 4 pupils will complete a national times table test assessing recall of times table facts up to 12 x 12. 

 

Homework will be given out on a Friday and will be expected to be returned by the Tuesday. In addition to this, spellings will be given out on a Monday, and then will be tested on a Friday. Also, Children can access Lexia and Mathletics at home.
