Welcome to Year 4!
We are really excited about you joining us this year! It’s going to be a fantastic last year at Parley! To make sure you are ready to have fun in Year 4, we have written some helpful information below.
In Year 4, we try to help you to become independent, resilient learners who are always prepared for any challenge.
Due to the current situation, we will create a new Google Classroom for all Year 4 pupils. This will be used to set homework, and in case of any school or bubble closure.
In Year 4, you are allowed to bring in your own pencil case and stationery to use in school. Pencil cases need to be named and they must be able to fit in your drawer. Any pencil cases that are too big will need to be taken home.
Each week, you will be given two pieces of home learning to complete, which will be set on the Google Classroom. This will be set on Thursday and returned the following Tuesday. It can be uploaded onto the Google Classroom or brought in. Often, one will have a literacy focus and the other a maths focus. We do not expect you to spend more than half an hour on both tasks combined. If you struggle, please speak to us and we will help you. We will also set spellings to be learnt once a week; they will be set and tested on Fridays as you did last year. The spellings will also be put on Spelling Shed.
We will be having a Roman Day in October! This year we will come in dressed in our own, old clothes. It’s going to be a fun packed day of activities and crafts. Please be aware that although we will try to wear protective clothing for our crafts, they are likely to get a little messy!
We value your partnership with us very much. If you have any questions or queries please feel to speak to us at the end of the day.
Mr Brown & Mrs Westerman
