Year 4

Welcome to Year 4, Comet Class at Shalfleet Primary

Dear Parents/Carers

We welcome you and your child to year 4 Comet class. This is to let you know about some of our routines.

Staff – Mr Roberts teaching Monday – Friday supported by Mrs Jacobs. On a Tuesday afternoon Mrs Blackburn will be covering the class and on a Thursday afternoon the class will be having PE with Mr McCormack.

Early morning routine – Your child can go into the playground from 0820 (with book bag and lunchbox) on Monday and Friday, and when the bell rings at 0830 the children will line up with their belongings, and then go into the year 4 classroom. On Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings the children can go into school at 0820 for their response marking and to read before school starts at 0835. The register is called in class at 0835 promptly and closes at 0840.

Fruit time – The children can bring a piece of fruit from home to be eaten in the playground at 10:30.

Drinks – Each child will need to bring in a named water bottle to drink water throughout the day.

End of day routine – The day ends for the children at 1500 with the siblings going outside to be picked up and the singles remaining in the year 4 classroom until they leave at 1515.

Pencil cases– your child is welcome to bring in their own small pencil case, which they are responsible for, it is not however essential.

Uniform – We ask that you regularly check that all clothing is clearly labelled, especially jumpers and coats, including their PE kit, and that all children are provided with a hat in hot weather, and a coat when it is cold or wet. We like to get the children out at playtime every day, even in light rain!

P.E – The class will have PE on Wednesday and Thursday afternoon each week. On a Thursday the children will be going home in their PE clothing. Can I please ask that they bring their PE kit back to school either on Friday or Monday morning at the latest.

Reading – We will be doing various reading activities every day, and therefore please make sure that the children always have their books in their reading bags in school. Every child will continue with their reading record, and it is helpful if you can write in it each time you read with your child, and adults at school will do the same to keep you informed of your child’s progress. However, I need to stress that these books are mainly a home reading book, and we will not always hear them read these books.

We look forward to working with your children this year.

Yours sincerely,
The Year 4 team.
