Welcome to Year 4.

Dear Parents and Guardians,

My name is Mrs Etchells and I am your child’s teacher if they are in 4E. I am sure the children will soon settle into the Year 4 routine. Mrs Beswick and I work closely together to plan motivating and interesting lessons and activities.

We like to get out and about in Year 4 and have already planned trips to support our history and geography topic. This term we will be finding out about the Victorians and will investigating the local area and its links to the Victorians. We are planning a visit to our local museum at Portland Basin early this term.

Mrs Green from the Tameside Music Service will be coming in to teach the children samba on Wednesday mornings. We are all looking forward to this.

Your help in supporting your child is greatly appreciated, especially in reading, helping them learn their spellings and time tables and in completing their homework. Also in ensuring your child reads regularly.

P.E. is on Wednesdays this term, homework is given on Fridays to be completed for the following Wednesday. Spellings are given on Mondays for a test the following Monday.

I look forward to this year being an enjoyable one but with everyone working hard to ensure the children reach their targets.

Thank you for your continued support.

Mrs Etchells.
