Welcome to Year 4 at Chapel Street Primary School. We hope that this will be an interesting and exciting year. In Year 4, we strive to make it possible for all children to achieve the highest of their potential by developing independent learning skills and encouraging them to challenge themselves. We believe that mistakes are the beginning of learning and not the end. Making mistakes is how we learn. Children are expected to take pride in all of their work and to be proud of their achievements in all areas of school life.
There are three Year 4 classes- 4A (Mrs Mawdsley), 4B (Miss Todd) and 4C (Miss Livesey- Team Leader). We have a team of talented teaching assistants and support staff who work alongside the children, either in class or in small groups.
The school day begins at 8.50. Children are expected to come into the classroom on their own, at the beginning of each day. They will be responsible for putting away their belongings, in the correct places. The children will then have an early morning task to complete so it is vital that all children arrive at school on time. The morning break is at 10.10, with lunch at 12.35. Children are encouraged to bring a healthy snack to enjoy at morning break. Alternatively, a variety of healthy snacks are sold at 8.30 each morning, on the snack trolley, in the playground. The school day ends at 3.15.
Maths and English homework is given out each week, on a Friday. This must be returned to school by the following Wednesday. It is expected that all homework is completed neatly and to the best of their abilities. We ask that parents and carers take an active interest in these tasks whilst helping the children to take responsibility for their own learning. Children have a spelling test every Wednesday and each child will be given a list of words to learn for the half term.
Please read with your child every day. Talk to them about what they have read and ask them questions. Children must bring their reading books and their signed reading records to school every day.
Children must be dressed smartly, in full school uniform. They must have a waterproof coat and be wearing sensible footwear. Children are responsible for their own belongings.
As well as having Physical Education lessons every week, the children in Year 4 also have swimming lessons at The Arcadia Leisure Centre. Children must have the correct kit on the correct day. PE and Swimming days are as follows:
PE - Thursday
PE - Monday
PE - Monday
Swimming - Tuesday
Swimming - Friday
We are always happy to speak to you about any concerns that you may have. We value the hard work that you do, at home, to support your child and we look forward to sharing their success with you.
