Mrs Laudat, Mr Kilpatrick and Mrs Fennell welcome you to Year 4.
This term Year 4 will be having PE on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Children will need a full PE Kit and may wish to bring a jumper for outdoor PE on a Wednesday afternoon. Swimming lessons take place in Year 4 and you will be notified when it is your child's turn to attend.
Children will be given spellings to learn each Tuesday and will also be tested on the previous week's spellings. Whitehall's spellings sheet enables you to see how well your child has performed in their spelling test as well as informing you of the current week's spellings.
Reading is a very important part of the curriculum. At Whitehall we encourage children to read for pleasure. In Key Stage 2 we encourage them to become independent readers. We ask children to aim to read at home with an adult a minimum of three time per week.
The school has now set up Bug Club. The children should be encouraged to use it regularly in addition to their normal home reading. It is a very good way for them to practise their comprehension skills.
4L will visit the Library on a Thursday.
4B will visit the Library on a Monday.
Each week the children will receive homework tasks:
Spellings will be handed out on a Tuesday for the following Tuesday.
Literacy, Topic or Maths will be set on a Friday to be handed in the following Wednesday.
Times Tables should be practised regularly.
Each term a Project will be set. Your support in carrying out and completing the project is much appreciated. The whole project should build into a very pleasing piece of work to be enjoyed. Presentation is very important but the content of the work is even more important!
