Welcome to Year 4 Olive Class! This is going to be an exciting and challenging year in which your child will be learning new skills and consolidating and developing their understanding of the world around them. My philosophy is to bring out the best in each and every child and to make learning exciting and worthwhile. I believe that every child has something to share and contribute to our class community and I encourage pupils to use their own initiative and develop self-motivation skills.
I aim to keep parents informed and we are always available for a chat at a mutually convenient time. I use Class Dojo points to motivate the students and parents will be available to see how many points they are getting by logging on to the website with a pass word I will be sending out shortly.
The children in Year 4 will be bringing home reading, spelling and writing tasks each week. They will also be improving their maths skills by using MyMaths website to consolidate and reinforce the work they are doing in class. They will need to bring their healthy lunch each day or have a school hot dinner. We recommend fruit or other healthy options as a snack for morning break. It is important to keep hydrated especially when it is warm so a drink is needed but only water is allowed in class. Exercise is important for growing bodies so we do PE twice a week and the school PE kit of white shirt and dark shorts is needed for these lessons. Trainers are also a requirement for outside PE lessons.
I look forward to meeting you during the term. Thank you in advance for your support.
