Year 4

Hope you all had a great Easter!

We can't believe that the Summer term is already here (perhaps someone should tell the weather)!

On Monday afternoons we will be going swimming. Each child needs a costume, swimming hat, a towel and a coat. If your child needs an inhaler, they should have one in school other wise they will not be allowed to go swimming. These should be in a bag which is easy to carry as we will be walking to the leisure centre. Swimming lessons begin at 2.30pm and finish at 3.00pm. We then need to get changed and walk back to school. This means that we will arrive back at school at 3.30 at the earliest. To make sure that all children are accounted for, please collect your child from the front playground as usual.

Outdoor PE will now be on Friday afternoons and there will not be any indoor PE.

Homework arrangements will stay the same as last term.

Thank you for your cooperation,

Year 4 team.

In Year 4 children participate in a National Multiplication Times Table Check.

This takes place in June.

We work hard in school on fluency of times tables to ensure your child is prepared. We try to ensure no additional pressure is placed on children so that when they come to do the test, it is like any other day practising their times tables.
