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 looking forward to getting to know the children and I am sure the children will soon settle into the Year 4 routine. Miss Pearson and I are working together to ensure the children experience a range of different activities throughout the year.

We always like to get out and about in school and Year 4 is no exception. Trips have already been planned to support our history and geography topics. 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 sometime this term.
Mrs Green from the Tameside Music Service will be coming in to teach the children samba on Tuesday afternoons. We are all looking forward to this.

This year, Year 4 pupils are to be assessed on their times table knowledge in June 2020. We will be working hard to ensure the children are prepared for this.

Your help in supporting your child is greatly appreciated, especially in reading, helping them learn their spellings and times tables and in completing their homework. Also, in ensuring your child reads regularly – this year new reading record books have been introduced.

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 helping the children to achieve their targets and encouraging them in their learning. I’m sure it will be enjoyable and fun!

Thank you for your continued support.

Mrs Etchells.
