Reading 

It is an expectation in Year 4 that your child will read three times per week at home. This forms part of their homework. Please ensure that a comment is made and the reading log is signed by an adult. If your child is reading an additional book of their own from home, this can also be added to the reading log and will count towards their reading for the week.

 

Times Tables

By the end of year 4, children should know all of their multiplication and related division facts up to 12 x 12. In June, there will be a multiplication check so we will be practising frequently at school. Children have a log in for TTRockstars that can be used to practise at home.

Aqua Festival

30 children had lots of fun at an Aquafest at John Charles Centre. The festival involved a range of events including fun races and water polo. Although there was a competitive element, the main emphasis of the whole festival was on having fun and participation.

Happy Halloween!

 

We had a fantastic time dancing the night away at our Halloween Disco.
