Swift Class (Year 4)
Hello Swift Class, I hope that everyone is well and had a great weekend in the sun. We are now in our final week of the summer term and it has been an eventful couple of terms. I just want to say a massive thank you and also well done for all of your hard work. We have all had to adapt to a new way of doing things and I think you have all managed really well (even if a few bumpy days). To parents, thank you for all of your support this year and especially during lockdown. I know that home learning has forced us all to take on roles at home we wouldn't normally do to such extent - so thank you all.
I hope that you all enjoy your transition day on Wednesday with Mrs Hughes and Mrs Read as I know they have a brilliant session planned for you all.
Take care and stay safe

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.
