We hope that you have had an enjoyable and restful Christmas Break. The children have settled so well after starting back. This letter is to inform you of our topics and any important information for the following weeks ahead. We have many exciting things planned for this half term and we can’t wait to get started!
The homework grid and spellings will be different but the expectations remain the same. Please remind your child that they should be putting in as much care and thought into their homework as they do in their school books. There are always plenty of spare copies if your child misplaces their sheet as well as online copies on our class page. Homework will be collected on Friday and given back the following Monday. The children will be tested each Friday on that week’s spellings.
Looking forward to the half term ahead, we have many exciting things planned. We have our first trip of the year to Tehidy woods for a River study. A letter has been sent home, so if you have yet to receive one, please ask us for a new one. We have introduced more times table work this term, which the children have thoroughly enjoyed, this is ahead of the new Y4 times tables check that is being carried out in June. This half term, Year 4 will be having Samba lessons, which we can’t wait for!
If you have any concerns/questions at any time, please let us know as soon as you can so we can address them. If you have any queries or questions. We are available at 8:30am and 3:15pm everyday on the classroom door. If you would like to meet with us outside of these hours please do not hesitate to make an appointment through the Academy receptionist or contact us through Class Dojo.
