PE kits and days

We have two hours of PE a week, on Mondays and Wednesdays. The lessons are taught by our sports coach, Mr Wolfe. It is very important that your child comes to school in a suitable outdoor kit with trainers. Please make sure that the kit is clearly named so that it can be found and returned.


School Council

These are our school council members for year 4


Homework

Alongside spellings, English and maths homework will be set every Friday to be completed by the following Thursday.


English





Maths


Digital copy currently unavailable.



Spelling Shed helps children to practise their spellings via a simple game. The game gives four different degrees of support in the form of difficulty modes: Easy, Medium, Hard and Extreme. Higher levels allow a higher score to be achieved but children can practise as much as they like on lower levels before trying to gain high scores. The scores achieved give a league position and each class has its own league position within a school league and Spelling Shed’s world league.


Children access the online game via http://play.spellingshed.com. The class will be tested every Friday. The idea is that your child practices their spellings at home via the online 'Spelling Shed' resource as described above. If you do not have access to this, then please use the list below. Please ask if your child is unsure of which list they are to learn.


Stage 2 - Test on 9/12/22



Stage 4 - Test on 9/12/22



Times Tables Rock Stars is a wonderful maths resource for your child to learn and practice their times tables to improve fluency and speed. The fun online resource is incredibly effective and highly recommended. It has been thoroughly enjoyed by many pupils throughout the school! Your child has already been given their login details but if you need them again please let me know and I will be happy to help.


Things we need

A bottle of water (no juice please in case of sticky spillages!).

A healthy snack for break.

Fridays are 'treat days' so your child can bring in a snack of their choice. Alternatively, £1 can be sent in a labelled envelope for our weekly tuck shop.

A book bag with reading book and reading record.


Celebrating success!

Year 4 is full of amazing children and we want to celebrate every success and achievement during this year both inside and outside of school. We would love to hear about all the amazing things your child does, so please do tell us!


...and finally...

As a team, we are always here for you. If you need to discuss anything, please let us know. You can see me in the morning or after school, or send an email to: crowsby@boothwood.leics.sch.uk.

If you would like a longer meeting please make an appointment so we can discuss your queries without feeling rushed. If you need any other information please do not hesitate to ask.


Many thanks for your continued support,


Miss Rowsby
