Year 4 2020 - 2021

Welcome to Year 4 !

Hello and welcome to the Year 4 class webpage.

We've had a very busy start to the Autumn term so far and the children have shown that they are an enthusiastic, hard-working and creative group of young people.

In Year 4 we encourage the children to show greater independence as learners and to develop their growth mind set in their approach to work. In class they are given many opportunites to work together cooperatively to discuss their ideas and produce successful, collaborative work.

A high standard of presentation is very important and it has been wonderful to see the children already trying hard with their handwriting and taking pride in their work. Many of the children are looking forward to receiving their Pen Licence in the near future.

Over the coming weeks, everyone in the class will be given a specific responsibility and role which will help the classroom run smoothly and efficiently eg. red box monitor, librarian etc. Over the year, these jobs will be rotated so that all the children will have a chance to try out different roles.

 

School Council

Our School Councillors this year are Annie and Jack who were voted into their roles by the class. Congratulations to them both and I am sure they will do an excellent job representing our class on the School Council !

Reminders

  • Children will need to bring in their Homework Diary and water bottle each day.
  • PE kits are to be left in school until half term. This is so we can limit the amount of things that are coming and going between home and school.
  • Once children have finished reading a book they need to complete a book review and email it to myself: gdavies@stvincents.cheshire.sch.uk or Mrs Duffy: aduffy@stvincents.cheshire.sch.uk
  • Please encourage your child to use their logins to access TT Rockstars as much as they can.

We look forward to working together with all our families over the coming year. Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions.

Stay well and keep safe.
