Dragonfly Class

  Welcome to Dragonfly Class!

 

 

Welcome to Year 4! Please find below some key information about the school day, P.E, homework and reading. Click on the icons for each term to find out more about our topics this year. 

 

Start and finish times

8:40am – 3:00 pm

 

P.E.

P.E will be taught on Mondays and Thursdays. Children should come into school wearing their P.E. kit on these days and do not need to bring their uniform to change into. For the Autumn term, P.E will be taught inside on Mondays and, weather permitting, will be taught outside on Thursdays. Please note that long hair must be tied back and earrings removed. Thank you.

Homework

Homework is set every Friday and is expected to be completed by the following Wednesday to be marked. Weekly homework includes:

  • Spellings to be practised in preparation for a spelling test on Wednesdays. Please complete the sheet in your homework folder as well as accessing Spelling Frame for additional practise.
  • Online Maths and English activities which are accessed via Mirodo. 
  • Regular Times Tables Rockstars practise.
  • Regular reading at home.

In addition, children will have optional Nando’s Challenges each term that can be completed.

Reading

In Year 4, the children will have the opportunity to change their reading books on a Tuesday and a Thursday. We suggest that the children read their school books several times in order to encourage fluency and accuracy. Children are expected to read at home 3-5 days a week. This should be recorded in the children's reading diaries and must be signed by an adult. Reading certificates will be awarded accordingly: 50 reads Bronze, 100 reads Silver, 150 reads Gold and 250 reads Platinum.

 

 

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at year4@maltese.essex.sch.uk.

 

Thank you,

 

Year 4 team.
