Welcome back to a new school year.

We hope that you have all had an enjoyable summer break. Year 4 will focus heavily on multiplication as we prepare for our Multiplication Check this school year. The children have already been working on times tables in previous years to build their knowledge of the tables and we know that they will continue to work hard this year.

Mr Barratt, from the Wolverhampton Music School, will be joining us every Wednesday morning for a music session! The children will learn to play the Ukulele for the first half term, before moving on to learn how to look after and play the violin later in Year 4!

PE: Please be aware that some weeks, PE sessions may be flexible; therefore, children always need their kit in school. PE kit consists of a green school sweatshirt, plain white polo shirt, green PE shorts and plain black trainers/pumps. As the weather will become cooler for a while, plain black joggers may be worn. Please can we remind parents that no jewellery should be worn in school with the exception of stud earrings. In line with Health and Safety guidelines, they should not be worn on P.E days. Children will be asked to remove earrings before P.E sessions. If your child cannot participate in P.E sessions for medical reasons, a written letter explaining the reasons why need to be shown on the day of the session supported by a note from the doctor.

Children in Year 4 receive homework, which is expected to be completed on time and to a high standard. Children will have weekly assignments set on Reading Eggs and My Maths, for which they have a week to complete. To help support their learning of times tables, we expect them to use TimesTables Rockstars (TTRS) to improve their learning. In Year 4, we will set homework on these learning websites each Monday and they have the week to complete them before a new one is set.

We look forward to working with you over the next year to ensure your children have an enjoyable and valuable year. If you have any concerns or worries, please arrange a time to speak to one of us by calling the office. You can also contact us on Class Dojo.
