Year 4

 Welcome to Year 4! 

We hope you have had a fabulous Summer holiday and are ready for the term ahead, which will be full of exciting learning experiences and opportunities!

This term we will be stepping back into the past to investigate the Ancient Egyptians. We will also be learning about living things in Science. In English we will be developing our reading, writing, speaking and listening skills as well as improving our handwriting and spelling. For Maths, we will be focusing on number and developing our reasoning skills. Remember to use Mathletics and My Maths, at home as well as school, and keep challenging yourself!

Reading Records: Children are expected to read at least five times a week. Reading records are checked on a weekly basis and must be signed by an adult for at least one of the occasions that your child has read. Please complete a reading challenge as the comment, which is at the front of the reading record. Thank you for your support.

Medicines and Inhalers: If your child uses an asthma pump, please bring a spare inhaler to be kept in school and complete the Healthcare Plan and Request to Administer Medicines Form on our website.

Outdoor clothing: Please ensure your child is dressed appropriately for the weather as many lessons at Thomas Harding take place outdoors – even if it is raining! Your child must have a pair of old trainers or wellies in school at all times.
