Our teacher is Mrs Turner.
We love to share all our learning so keep up to date with all our news by following us on twitter @Y4redgate

Summer Term - History - The Anglo Saxons and The Vikings.
In Year 4, children are learning to be independent in their reading, including book choice and are encouraged to read each night at home. They follow the school reading scheme and once they have finished their reading book, they independently change their books. Every afternoon, every child, in a small group, has a reciprocal reading session to assess their comprehension skills, the children also enjoy quiet reading time each day.
Spellings are given out on a Monday and children are tested on Friday.
Homework is sent out on a Friday and needs to be returned to the class by the Wednesday. The homework is either a piece of English or Maths, however Mrs Turner may set a project linked to topic that can be completed in a more creative way.
Maths homework will sometimes be online at Abacus Maths (see link below - school code 3r3a)
It is hoped children in Year 4 will become experts in their times tables and we do regular class challenges to help us enjoy and improve our knowledge. All children are expected to know their tables to 12x12 by the end of the year and the government have introduced a test which the children will take the summer term. It is hoped parents will support their children in their learning and are encouraged to spend time on this with their children. Mrs Turner also has some lovely games and websites along with Abacus Maths Each child also has an individual log on for www.activelearnprimary.co.uk using the code 3R3A.
Please do ask for any ideas to keep this important learning fun!
Please make Mrs Turner aware if your child has any medical conditions or there is a change in any circumstances. If your child needs any medication it must be handed to a member of the school office accompanied by a letter signed by parent/guardian.
Please can all children ensure that their PE kits are in school and available at all times. We have two sessions of PE each week and children are required to wear PE kit of black shorts, Redgate PE blue top and black pumps. Children will be asked to take their PE kits home at the end of each half term to be washed and return them ready for use on their first day back at school.
The children are awarded dojos for excellent behaviour, good effort in the classroom, full marks in spelling test, excellent handwriting, reading at home and good behaviour around the school.
