Welcome to Year 4! Croeso!

 

Staff in Year 4: Mrs L Jones, Mrs L Poiner, Mrs K Jones & Mrs Ferguson.

 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A huge, warm welcome to Year 4!  We are so excited to begin our year with you all.  Get ready to have a fantastic year of fun and learning.  We can't wait to meet you all and get to know your amazing personalities.  We will form a great team - we know it already!

You are welcome to bring in a healthy snack for break time and also to bring in a water bottle that has your

name on it.  We will encourage you to drink plenty throughout the school day to stay healthy and hydrated.

AUTUMN TERM TOPIC: Swansea: An Ugly, Lovely Town? 

 You have already stated what you would like to learn during this term in our EPIC (Everyone Planning In Class) time during transition week 

 

In Year 4, you will complete one main oracy project - this will be in the Spring Term.  We will make sure that we practise lots of Oracy skills throughout the Autumn term to prepare you for this.  

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Homework:

Weekly spellings and 'MyMaths' homework will be uploaded to our Y4 blog on our school website (link below) to complete throughout the week.   

 

PE: 

Our PE days will be Wednesday (outdoor) and Friday (indoor) Please ensure that you wear suitable clothing and footwear for these days.  

 

Aside from PE sessions, we will be learning outdoors frequently, so it is always a good idea to bring a coat - just in case!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Reading at Casllwchwr, we do many forms of reading:  
Guided reading as a whole class  

(same text for whole group - decided by the teacher with lots of talk involved teaching objectives)
Shared   (paired, group and whole class)

Individual (1:1 reading with an adult)
Independent  (own choice)

 

Please bring a reading folder into school as soon as possible, in order to take home an individual schemed reading book (Bug Club) and a book from our class library of your choice. 

These books will be sent home on alternate weeks.  

  • Week 1 - Library book of your choice (This will be sent home this week - WC 6th Sept 2021)
  • Week 2 - Scheme Bug Club reading book

...and so on.  

 

 

All you need to remember to do is ensure that you return each book on a

Monday, in readiness to exchange - we will do the rest! :-)

 

Whilst you have your library book at home, we will be reading with you 1:1 in school, as well as listening to you during guided reading sessions.  

 

Whilst you have your schemed Bug Club reading book at home, we will be listening to you read through guided reading sessions.

Online reading - Reading Eggs/Eggspress    

 

Please remember to access Reading Eggs/Eggspress as regularly as possible.  You will be given time to use this excellent reading tool in class, too. 

You will take home your password bookmark at the beginning of term - remember to keep it safe at home.

 

I understand it may be hard for Mums and Dads to

hear you read every night, so be independent and read to yourself when they can’t hear you. Try to alternate it as much as possible and try to read a range of books. 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

You all have HWB log ins that you know.  https://dysgu.hwb.gov.wales/‘ will take

you to the log in page.  

 

 

Photographs of our learning will be on the Y4 gallery.  The link is at the top of this class page. 

Keep your eye out on Twitter for photos of our learning, too.  

 

 

Remember to reach for the stars in everything you do - if you try your very hardest, nobody can ask anything more of you!
