Hello to all parents, adults and carers.
The year is quickly drawing to a close but there are a few key events still coming in summer term. Netball will open up to Year 4 children ready for the next year, sports day is rapidly approaching as is the annual dance festival! As always, I look forward to speaking with you about your child's progress at the end of the year if need be after reports go out. Do not hesitate to come and speak with me in the morning or make an appointment through the office if you have any queries, concerns or questions. Please scroll down to see various event photos and general information.
Thank you for your ongoing support.
It really is important that your child has access to a book that they enjoy reading. During guided reading I will write a small note asking your child to perform a particular task, practise a particular skill or converse with an adult about a certain skill they have been learning. Having the opportunity to talk about a text and practise finding information and using evidence in the text to support their answers is something which will go a long way in developing your child's comprehension skills. It is not just be about reading to an adult at all times. If you need more guidance with this, please come and see me, I am happy to help.
By the end of this academic year, Y4 children are expected to know all of the times tables. Some children do say that they know them because they can recite them in order. The children need to know the multiplication facts and the associated division facts. Please practise these as often as you can. Lack of knowledge about the multiplication and division facts does slow progress when it comes to applying these in other areas such as fractions when finding quarters as an example. Please practise! We are now giving the children an online test practise three days each week. The children have to answer 25 questions and only have 6 seconds each question - NOT EASY!
