Year 4 - Mrs Clitheroe
WELCOME TO YEAR 4
Hello, I am Mrs Clitheroe and I am thrilled to be the Year 4 teacher. Mrs Montgomery will be supporting learning in class and we are both looking forward to an enjoyable and successful year at St Peter and St Paul’s Primary School.
If you explore this page, you will find lots of photographs and details about what we have been up to as well as important day to day information.
If there is ever anything you would like to ask, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Reading in School:
Reading will take place daily. This will be in the form of whole class guided reading alongside reading in smaller groups. Children will also have regular opportunities to read aloud in English lessons and read for pleasure during the day.
Home reading is very important. Please encourage your child to read a few pages of their home reading book each night. Books will be changed on a Tuesday and Friday.
Home Learning tasks are to be completed in the Home Learning booklet, where possible, with additional tasks added to the home learning book. Each term, a new booklet will be sent home. It will give a times table focus, an English activity and a Mathematics activity for each week. The children are expected to complete these activities over the half term and return them to school during the last week of the half term to be marked. There will also be a spelling investigation overview for the half term.
Children will focus on a different times table each week, which they will focus on in class but it would also be helpful if they could practise this times table at home. Once it is seemed appropriate, they will have a quick times table test each Friday to help build stamina and confidence.
In addition to this, other homework may be given when I feel necessary. This will be to follow up work to support what we have done in class (Literacy, Maths or Handwriting).
I appreciate your support in helping the children complete the tasks set.
Children will have a PE activity on a Thursday and a short activity on a Monday. Please make sure that your child has their PE kit in school.
PE kit consists of:
- White T-shirt
- Black Shorts
Please ensure all uniform and PE kit is labelled, as it is very easy to misplace it when moving around class and around school.
Your child will need to bring a plastic bottle with their name written on, filled with fresh water each day as our classroom often gets quite warm and it is important to stay hydrated.
