Welcome back to a brand new school year. We hope that you have all had an enjoyable summer break. Year 4 will be really focussing on multiplication this year as we prepare for our Multiplication Check in the Summer Term (2022). We look forward to the challenges ahead and we know that our children will be ready for this!

We are lucky to have the Wolverhamton Music School join us every Wednesday morning for a music session too! We know our children will love this.

P.E sessions will be on Tuesday for both classes and Wednesday (Class 9)/ Thursday (Class 10)

Please be aware that these sessions may be flexible, therefore children need a P.E kit (consisting of green shorts, a plain white top and black pumps) in school at all times. Please can we remind parents that no jewellery should be worn in school with the exception of stud earrings, and in line with Health and Safety guidelines these should not be worn on P.E days. Children may be asked to remove earrings before P.E sessions. If your child cannot participate in P.E sessions for medical reasons, a written letter explaining the reasons why need to be shown on the day of the session.

Children in Year 4 receive homework, which is expected to be completed on time and to a high standard. Spellings will be given out each Monday and tested the following Monday in your child’s phonics group. Your child will also receive a further 10 spellings on a Friday by their class teacher to be tested on a Friday. We encourage you to help your child learn the spellings and talk to them about the meaning of the words. Children will also have access to Reading Eggs, My Maths and Times tables Rockstars to improve their learning. In Year 4, we will set homework on these learning websites each Monday and they have the week to complete them before a new one is set.

We look forward to working with you over the next year to ensure your children have an enjoyable and valuable year. If you have any concerns or worries, please arrange a time to speak to one of us by calling the office. You can also contact us on Class Dojo.

To celebrate British Science Week, children in Year 4 have been investigating: 'What materials make the best thermal insulator?'
We made our predictions before conducting our investigation.
In the afternoon, we shared our results with Key Stage 2 in a special assembly.

Well done to the children who took part in our mini performance!

WOW!

Well done children, we are very proud of you!

  

  

Year 4 had fun at Elston Hall Primary School with other pupils from across our trust.
They have been exploring the app 'Garage Band'. The children have learnt many skills that they are going to bring back to Goldthorn and teach their class friends.
We are looking forward to making music!
