Meet the Teacher

We would normally have a Meet the Teacher meeting at the start of the year. However, this year it is not possible to do this in person. The powerpoint is available to download at the bottom of the page and it has key information about Year 4 and the learning we will be doing. Once you have watched it if you have any questions please do not hesitate to come and speak to either Mr Cunningham or Mrs Murphy.

Important things to remember:

  1. Your child needs to read and practice their times tables at home every night and bring their book bag into school every day so an adult in school can hear them read. 
  2. Your child needs a P.E. kit in school every day and can be taken home at the end of every half term. This must include pumps or velcro trainers for outside games. On Wednesday, your child will need their swimming kit.
  3. Your child needs a coat with a hood every day.
  4. Year 4 start at 8:45 am everyday and it is vital your child is in at this time. We finish at 3:15 pm

This will give instructions on what pages the children should complete in the workbooks that was sent home with them. To support this, there will be a daily video uploaded to the class web page that provides instructions on what learning the children should complete.

You will also find the maths lessons to be completed. Literacy will be completed on Purple Mash Serial and on the timetable there is an additional activity.

Times tablesWe use Times Tables Rock Stars to help your child learn their times tables. Challenges will be set through this and regular practice is encouraged. The children have enjoyed making flashcards to help them learn the time times tables. Lots of different games can be played using flashcards and they are really easy to make. Flashcards are alos great for helping learn spellings.
