Swift Class (Year 4)
Hello Swift Class, I hope that you are all well and getting some fresh air in this beautiful sunshine. Thank you to those who have sent pictures of what you have been doing. I am missing seeing you all so it has been lovely to see what people are up to.
Mums and Dads, I have added some new work for the week commencing 30th March. Please do not put yourselves under any pressure to complete it all. The work I have added is there to support you in this unusual and difficult time if you need it. You do not have to do it all so please do not feel that you have to.
For Maths in particular, I have added some helpful slides plus the daily tasks the children could complete in one place. I hope this helps. The work set will, at this stage, be content that we have already covered so should just be revision for the children. For English, I will continue to add a weekly reading task (numbered 1...2....3...etc) but I ask that the children continue to use spag.com, Spelling Shed and have a go at the daily writing activities that are on Pobble365.com.
And finally, I just wanted to say that this is an unprecedented and difficult sistuation and you are doing an amazing job and I thank you for that. Look after each other and stay safe.
These activities are an optional extra. Please do not feel like you have to complete them.
I hope that everyone has a great Easter break. Take time to relax and hopefully the sun will come out so you can all make it outside. Take care and stay safe Swift class.

Welcome to Swift Class
The children will have their P.E. lessons on Monday and Thursday so please ensure that they have their correct P.E. kit in school and it is correctly labelled. The children will be taking part in the Kid's Marathon every Tuesday morning. They will need another pair of trainers (in addition to their P.E. kit) with a named plastic bag to store them in.
Children have been given a reading diary in which they should record all the reading that they are doing at home and parents should sign to confirm that they have read and write a short note about how they read. They should read a minimum of three times a week. They will have the opportunity to change their books on a Tuesday afternoon.
The requirement of the new Maths curriculum is that all children need to be able to instantly recall their times tables up to 12 x 12 by the end of Year 4. This is an area of the curriculum that you can really support your child with.
The children will be working with a specialist music teacher throughout the school year. These lessons will take place every Monday afternoon. By the end of the year, the children will have had opportunities to learn to read music and play various instruments.

Private and Personal Information
In our online safety lessons this half term, Year Four focussed on understanding that good digital citizens are responsible and respectful in the digital world (and beyond). They also learnt about the benefits of sharing information online, but also about the safety and security risks of sharing certain types of information.
Please take a look at the Family Tip sheets and Activity sheets that support the lessons covered in school.
