Class 4 2020 - 2021
Welcome to Class 4
The Class 4 teacher is Mrs Williams and the teaching assistant is Miss White. We're also lucky to have specialist provision in certain subjects: Mr Nicholas teaches cornets/music appreciation to Y4.
Class 4 consists of 22 children from Lower Key Stage 2: a mix of Year 3 and Year 4 children. It is an exciting stage where children learn to become more independent and begin to learn a musical instrument and a foreign language.
Times: Class 4's doors currenlty open from 8.40am to 9.00am to faciltate an easy staggered entry. Children can currently be collected from 3.00pm to 3.20pm. Please queue up outside the classroom, maintaining social distancing and wear a face mask. Children will be called to the door in the order that parents are queuing so thank you for your patience in this.
Homework is set for each Friday but we will endeavour to get it out on Thursday if time permits. This is to be returned on Monday or Tuesday please. If you have any questions about the homework, please don't hesitate to ask. In addition, the children are asked to practise their spellings and times tables for a weekly test.
Spellings are sent out each Monday to be tested the following Monday. It is vital that your child practises their spellings each week as the words given are expected to be used in context in their written work. Daily practise is the key.
Tables are very important in Key Stage 2 (Year 4 children are expected to be completely fluent in all tables by summer). Children will be having weekly tables tests every Friday so please encourage children to learn and practise their quick recall of facts. The children at KCE will be using Times Table Rockstars- a fun, online computer program where they can take part in multiplication battles with friends and staff to reach "Rock Hero" status. Every child has been give login and password details for https://ttrockstars.com but please email Mrs Williams if these have been mislaid.
Reading books and diaries are sent home and should be filled in to show children's progress. Each child is responsible for bringing in their reading book and giving them to Miss White so she can change them when needed. Children should be reading and enjoying books on a daily basis.
PE will be on a Thursday (outdoor) and we are asking children to come in to school on Thursdays in their PE kits until further notice. PE kits consist of a plain white tshirt, black or blue shorts and plain pumps/trainers. Please ensure that each item in your child's kit is labelled. If the weather is cold, plain dark tracksuit bottoms and a jacket would be perfect. No jewellery allowed for health and safety reasons.
Water bottles should be labelled and have only plain water in. No juice or fizzy drinks please.
If you need to speak urgently to Mrs Williams or Miss White, a brief message can be given in the morning or at the end of the school day. If you need more time, please let the office know and they will be able to make an appointment for you at a suitable time. This is very likely to be a telephone consulatation given the current situation.
Mrs Williams is very much looking forward to working with the children in Class 4 and sharing in their development and success.
Mrs Williams and Miss White
