Welcome to Class 4M –
Miss Mather’s Class
Autumn term 2017
Welcome to class 4M! I hope that you have all had a fantastic break and you are looking forward to the autumn term.
This term, our topic is ‘Romans’. We will be looking at the Romans and studying how they lived, their famous battles and the impact they had on our life today.
Reading is a vital skill and it is therefore essential that children read at least 4 times a week. Reading should be recorded in their planners. The planners also provide some guidance on the types of questions you could ask to help develop your child’s comprehension. Reading at home, alongside weekly guided reading sessions in school, help to develop skills and build self-confidence.
HOMEWORK AND PLANNER
Homework is given out weekly and will usually alternate between English and Maths. On occasions, homework will be related to Topic or Science. Homework will be set on a Friday and returned the following Wednesday and it is to be completed in the books provided.
Spelling homework will be given out on a weekly basis.
Planners need to be kept up to date and it is the children’s responsibility to do this. On Fridays, we will spend some time reflecting on what they have achieved as well as setting new targets for the following week.
I would ask that planners and reading books are in school every day and signed by an adult once a week.
Please make sure PE kits are in school on Monday and are taken home on a Friday. Our P.E time is on Wednesday morning and Tuesday morning. If PE kits are used for an after school club, make sure they are back in school the next day.
If any parents/carers have any spare time or would like to come in and help (we always need help with displays, art and craft lessons, reading with individuals etc.) then please pop in and we can make arrangements. Any support, big or small, is really appreciated and we would love to have you involved.
The children are sure to settle into Year 4. However, if you do have any concerns or questions at any time, please do not hesitate to speak to me at the end of the school day or arrange an appointment with the office.
Many thanks for your continued support,
