Happy 2023 class 4!

 

 

Welcome to the Spring Term!

The adults in class 4 are Mrs. Ncube and Ms. Barker.

 

Our topic this term is 'Our Kings and Queens'

Reminders

PE and Forest School are every Friday and children are asked to come in PE kits. It is advised that jewellery and watches stay at home and any long hair should be tied back. 

Homework will be set every Friday, to be checked the following Thursday, and this will consist of activities from mathletics, times tables, and spellings. Additional homework may occasionally be set if children need further practice at particular skills or work in class.

As you are probably aware, the government recently created a times table check at the end of year 4. To prepare the children for this, please encourage the children to regularly practise their tables. This can be done using the websites below:
