Welcome back to school; we hope that you enjoyed the Summer holidays!
We thought we should introduce ourselves so that you knew who we were!
Mr Goodman (4G)

PPA teachers (every other Wednesday):
This year we have some fantastic learning themes. Autumn term consists of two areas of history: the Victorians and World War 2. The children will enjoy an interactive workshop with Rainbow Theatre to explore Victorian life. Next half term we will be 'evacuated' to Arundel by train!
All Year 4 classes will have PE lessons on Mondays and Wednesdays and will need full PE kits (preferably named!). A gentle reminder that long hair should be tied back, and that no jewellery should be worn, including earrings. When the weather turns colder, the children are allowed to wear tracksuits as we will still be completing lessons outside.
This year the children will be learning to play the guitar! They will need to have their guitar (loaned from the school, or their own if they already have one) every Thursday. After their lesson, the children should take their guitars home to practise, bringing them in again the following week.
Homework will consist of reading, spellings, timestables, Maths and Home Learning Journal tasks.
Reading expectations: 3 x a week to an adult, signed each time in their reading diaries due every Monday.
Spellings: individual word lists to practise at home with a test every Friday.
Timestables: the children should be becoming more confident with their timestables and learning associated division facts at speed.
Maths: activities will be set on Mathletics and/or Purple Mash, with each child having their own individual log in to access at home.
Home Learning Journals: activities will be set regularly with clear hand-in dates on each task.
