Welcome to Class 4's homepage
Your Teacher is Miss Griffin.
Your Teaching Assistant is Mrs Canale.
Class 4 PE days are Tuesday and Friday. PE kit should be worn to and from school on these days to prevent the need for changing. Please make sure that tracksuits are worn in cold weather and that children have suitable trainers which support their ankles. Long hair must be tied up, earrings will need to be removed or taped up and nails must be kept short to avoid injury to themselves or other pupils during practical sessions.
Homework will be set via Purple Mash, BugClub, or Timestable Rockstars on a Thursday and should be completed by the following Wednesday. A note will be sent home giving details of the homework set plus your teacher will update Class Dojo with a homework message each week. If you cannot access any of these online platforms, you will need to inform your child’s teacher asap who will arrange for them to complete their homework in school on their classes ‘Homework Club’ day. On this day, technology will be available for children to complete their homework in school.
Each week, children will learn a new spelling rule during our Read, Write Inc, spelling sessions. The children receive their individual spellings each week from their Read Write Inc teacher and will be tested on these the following week at the beginning of a new spelling rule. Children will be rewarded with a dojo point for full marks on their spelling test (and an extra golden token if they beat their personal best score). Children will receive a new set of spellings on a Monday and will be tested the following Monday.
It is essential that children practice their timetables regularly. By the end of year 4, children need to be able to confidently and fluently recall their timestables up to 12 x 12. In addition to daily practice as part of our maths lessons, class 4 will have a weekly challenge using TT Rockstars and regular paper based timestable challenges throughout the week.
The children are expected to read their school reading book every day for at least 15 minutes. This will need to be recorded in their planner. When your child has completed their book, they have the responsibility to tell their class teacher, who will then allow them to change their reading book. Children will have regular opportunities to change their reading books. No library books will be available initially.
Each child has been sent home with a letter containing their username and password for 'Purple Mash'. Accessing this website opens up a wide variety of curriculum based activities for the children to complete at home.
Each child has a log in for Bug Club. Bug Club is an amazing way for children to continue to build their love of reading. Books are carefully matched to the child's reading level. They can answer comprehension questions to earn rewards.
