Welcome back from the summer everyone! We’re so excited to welcome you back to Potters Green and to Year 4! Our topic this term is called Ancient Civilisations where we will be learning about the rise, life and fall of the Ancient Sumer, Ancient Egyptian and Ancient Indus Valley civilisations.

 

Our PE days will be Thursday (Outdoor) and Friday (Swimming).

An outdoor PE kit is required which includes jogging bottoms, t-shirt, jumper/hoody and trainers. We recommend bringing in a carrier bag too as trainers are often muddy and covered in grass, so will not be able to be worn in the classroom.

A swimming kit will be required on Friday’s and we also recommend bringing a carrier bag to put their wet clothes in once they have finished their lessons.

 

Homework

Children should each have their homework book and it is expected to be handed in weekly. Topic homework will be given at the beginning of each term and children should choose one activity to complete every week. Homework will be handed out every week on a Friday and is expected to be returned the following Tuesday.

 

Times tables Rockstars (TTR) is an excellent way to encourage children to learn their times tables, we are focusing on every times table this term in preparation for their Multiplication Year 4 Check. All children have been given their log ins and are able to log in and play!

 

Spelling Shed via www.edshed.com - is full of games which are geared to encourage your child with spelling tricky and common exception words. Logins can be found in the front of your homework book.

 

Reading Books will be changed once the child has finished reading their book. There is a basket in the classroom for children to put their book in. Please ensure your child is bringing in their reading diary and reading book everyday as there is ample opportunity for children to read in class.

 

Bug Club via www.activelearnprimary.co.uk is an excellent way to practise reading at home. Children are linked to their school books and have comprehension quizzes linked to the text accessed through a green bug icon.
