Welcome to Class 9 Croeso i Ddosbarth 9
Tymor yr Hydref / Autumn Term
We are excited to welcome you back to school at the start of this term. We are looking forward to getting to know you all and have lots of exciting things planned. Things may be slightly different to what you have previously been used to but we will explain everything clearly and will learn together.
We will start the year with a topic called 'All Creatures Great and Small'. This will include minibeasts and larger animals and look forward to hearing your ideas through pupil planning. We will carry out a variety of writing tasks linked to this topic.
We are excited to be continuing with the Inspire Maths programme which was introduced to the children in Year 3, building on their previous knowledge and learning.
PE lessons are on Mondays and /or Wednesdays. Children will need to attend school in their Mountain Lane PE kit on these days. Remember this should include jogging bottoms in case of colder weather, as all PE sessions will take place outdoors.
If children wear earrings, please ensure that they are removed or taped up on these days.
Year 4 are timetabled for the forest on Tuesday mornings. You will be informed when these sessions will take place. On these days the children should come in to school dressed in suitable, warm clothing and waterproof coat. They should also bring a change of footwear e.g. wellies / walking boots.
Homework and reading
At the beginning of each half term every child in Year 4 will be assigned a homework grid on Google Classroom, detailing a variety of possible homework tasks. We would like each child to complete some of the activities at home. These can be uploaded at any point during the half term and may be shared with the class. Unfortunately, at this time, we would ask that you do not send in any homework - it all must be submitted digitally. We would be grateful if you could assist your child completing the tasks by the completion date.
This year, children in Year 4 will bring a reading book home on a weekly basis. We will be sending these home on a Friday and ask that they be returned on the following Monday. During the first few weeks, children's reading will be re-assessed and a suitable book will be issued accordingly. These will be distributed by the start of October.
