Welcome to Year 4. This year you will be taught by Miss Allad and Mr Firmedow(HLTA). We can't wait to get stuck into all our exciting topics with you. They will include the Romans and the Vikings, the magical world of Harry Potter and the far away islands of Japan. We will also get to start swimming lessons at Kirkstall Leisure Centre. We know you're going to love it all!

Important information:
Physical Education

We will go swimming on Tuesday. Children should come to school with their swimming kit on under their uniform. Children will need to bring a bag with clean underwear and a towel in. There will be no swimming during the final week of the term.

PE days are Monday, children will need to bring their P.E kits in to school. 
.
PE kit should consist of a navy or white t-shirt and navy shorts or navy/black tracksuit bottoms or leggings. Children will need pumps or trainers because we will be outside as much as possible.


Reading Books
Children will bring home two reading books each Tuesday and these will need to be returned to school on the following Tuesday.  
Please try to listen to your child reading for at least 5-10 minutes each day.
Sharing a book at bedtime or reading a story to your child will help them develop a love for reading!


Spellings
Spelling Tests take place on Fridays and new spellings will be given out on the same day. Words will be given to your child which they can stick in to their spelling book at home. Please make sure that your child looks after their book and that you check it regularly. Thank you.

Homework
Please practise times tables with your children so that they can learn them by reciting them and know them by heart. Children need to know all times tables up to 12 x 12 by the end of Year 4.

and finally....
If you have any questions about Year 4 and the things we do, please come and talk to either Miss Allad or Mr Fimedow
