Year 4

Welcome to Year 4, Comet Class at Shalfleet Primary

Dear Parents/carers

Staff – This year in Comet Class the staff team are Nickie Jones (Teacher) and Rita Blackburn (HLTA).
Morning routines – The children will be greeted in the playground by a member of our class team. Registration is completed upon entering the classroom.

End of day – At the end of the school day, the children will be taken to the car park for collection. If someone is collecting your child for you, please make sure you have notified the office or unfortunately we will not be able to hand your child over.
PE – We will be doing PE on a Monday and Wednesday, so please ensure your child has their full PE kit in school on these days. For health and safety requirements please ensure your child can either remove their earrings, or you provide them with surgical tape to cover them.
Drinks – We recommend that your child brings in a named water bottle to drink throughout the day. This should not contain juice and your child will not be allowed to have their drink from their lunch box.
Reading – This is a vital part of your child’s learning. We will hear your child read a minimum of twice a week. To support your child at home we ask that you listen to them read as often as possible. At this age they should be able to read to themselves and record this in their reading record book.
Homework – Each half term your child will be sent home with a topic related homework task. This will help develop their independent working skills as well as support the work we do in class.
They will also receive spellings on a Thursday and have a week to practice them. The spelling test will take place the following Thursday.
On a Friday your child will receive Maths homework and this will need to be handed in the following Friday. This will help consolidate the learning we have done in class.
Thank you for taking the time to read this! Hopefully you have found it useful, however if you wish to discuss anything please come and see me at the end of school.
Yours sincerely
Comet Class Team

Our trip to Yarmouth Pier – We learned about Yarmouth Pier, visited the harbour office to learn facts, went to the construction yard to look at old and new piles for the pier and then walked up the currently closed pier. A talk was given from gardeners on the green as to why planting trees and then we finished the day with seeking for shells and pottery on the beach.
