Hello and welcome to Year 4!
The first term promises to be quite exciting and I am looking forward to meeting you over the next few weeks and getting to know the children. We are starting the term with the whole school inquiry—“What Makes Sea Mills Special?”. Within Year 4 we will be focussing on “What makes our school special and safe”. We will be looking at what makes a good learner and how does this feature at Sea Mills. We will be celebrating all our work in a special assembly on Friday 13th September.
Following that, we will be thinking about: “What is the difference between noise and sound?”
Our homework in Year 4 continues to be reading, spellings and times tables.
Even if your child is a Free Reader, reading at home is vital for a child’s development. It is clear from hearing your child read in class that they love reading to an adult, so please support them with this. It only needs to be for 10 minutes and should be recorded in their Reading Record. This needs to be brought into school every day so that their reading can be checked. When they have read to an adult (and had their Record signed) 15, 30 and 50 times, they can go to Mrs Randall to receive a prize.
