Year 4 Notices
Homework will be given out every Friday, with the homework due in the following week. Spellings will also be given out every Friday, in preparation for their weekly test. Children visit the school library every Monday and are given a chance to borrow a book. Please ensure that your child is reading, as much as possible, daily with an adult or older sibling. Boys will take part in a P.E. session and Girls will be attending swimming lessons every Thursday.
Thank you to all parents and carers for your continued support, if you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to get into contact with any of the Year 4 team!
Every child has access to an online library of books, known as Bug Club (https://www.activelearnprimary.co.uk/login?c=0). Each child has a username and password that they will already know, please encourage your child to use this resource as much as possible (school code: list).
If you would like to print off any extra homework for your child, a good website to access is Primary Resources (http://www.primaryresources.co.uk/) which has a wide range of free materials to help challenge and test children.

During this topic we had a go at baking and made some delicious mince pies and had lots of fun eating them!
