Welcome to Junior 4! The children have made a fantastic start to the term and I am sure this will continue throughout the year. In class, we have children from Year 5 and Year 6. Maths and English are taught each morning by Mrs Pugh and the foundation subjects in the afternoon by Mr Carter. PE takes place each Tuesday, led by a coach from SHARES, and a class follow up lesson on Thursdays, as well as a fitness session on Monday mornings.
The children all have their reading books and weekly spelling lists. We encourage children to read each night and practice spellings to support their learning in school. We recommend, a ‘look, say, cover, write, check’ approach. All children will be given a Maths and English homework task to complete. This is given out each Friday and is to be returned to school by Tuesday. Homework tasks are used to revise skills and reinforce aspects of learning already covered.
Don’t forget to take a look at our ‘See-Saw’ app to see the type of work and activities taking place in class. We also keep parents up to date with class news and life through our weekly newsletter. These can be accessed using the links at the bottom of this page.
