Welcome to Year 4. We are very excited to be teaching you all this year.

We have started the year well by completing 2 days of activities linked to being a good St Lawrence Learner. We have been very impressed with how well the children worked together and helped one another through the different challenges and tasks. They definitely showed us what being a St Lawrence Learner is all about! We are looking forward to getting to know all of our Year 4 families over the coming weeks.

Our Topic is "Invasion".

Our first topic in Year 4 is Invasion! We will be exploring Anglo Saxon England, and will investigate the Viking invasion. Further details can be found on the Year 4 Autumn 1 half term plan.

Your child has been given a homework diary in which they will record their homework every week. We ask that you check and sign this each weekend at the bottom of that week’s page. Their homework in Year 4 is set every Monday to be completed for the following Monday, and is as follows:

Spellings – the children will be taught a new spelling rule each week which we will practise daily in class using a variety of activities to help them to retain the pattern. They will have a test the following Monday. Please help your child by practising their spellings at home with them; they will be stuck into their homework diary on the ‘Spellings’ page. – this will continue to be set weekly for all children. Please advise Mrs Cullum or Mrs Ross if you are unable to access this at home.

Mathletics and Time Tables Rock Stars – these will be set on alternate weeks. (Just to remind you, the children will be doing the DfE Multiplication Tables Check in June.)

Reading – reading for pleasure is one of the most important things a child can do. Please listen to your child read at home – even if they are a fluent, independent reader – and sign their Homework Diary in the ‘Reading’ section once a week. You may also add comments or ask questions here.

If your child cannot complete their homework at home, a lunch time Homework Club has been set up for them to do it at school. It is important that they all do the homework activities we set in order to supplement their learning in class.

Year 4 PE days are Wednesday (outdoor games) and Thursday (indoor PE). May we remind you that the children should come to schools on those days in their PE kit.
