Welcome to Year 4, Class Da Vinci, where the children will have plenty of new and enjoyable learning experiences and opportunities linked to our topics and curriculum across the year. Please use the topic tabs on the right hand side of the screen to find out all the interesting activities we will be doing.
The information on our class page outlines key information such as:
- Home learning
- Book bags
- PE information
- Special visitors
- School trips
- Parent/Carer letters
Children’s home learning will be handed out on a Friday afternoon and it should be handed back in on the following Wednesday. Home learning is alternated weekly:
- Week 1: Maths CGP Book & Spellings
- Week 2: Reading CGP Book & Times tables
I have found the greatest support that parents/carers can do at home is: Reading collaboratively (15 minutes minimum per day), times tables practise and individual spelling booklet practise.
If the children have handed their home learning in on time, as well as reading four times a week with their reading record signed, the children are able to play Class Da Vinci’s Home Learning Monopoly game! Roll the dice to win many exciting and fun prizes!
As the children are maturing, they need to be encouraged to remember their book bag everyday. Inside the book bag should be their reading book, reading record and spelling booklet as these are used daily by both the children and the adults.
For Terms 1 & 2, the children’s PE lessons will be on Monday afternoon and Tuesday morning. As the children are now in Year 4, I am encouraging them to take responsibility for their own PE kits, making sure they are in school at the start of each week.
As the weather is worsening, children need to have: black shorts or plain black jogging bottoms, a white t-shirt, a dark coloured jumper, socks and appropriate black trainers (no plimsolls please!)
Special Visitors & School Trips:
For Terms 1 & 2, the children will have a special 3D model Art Day where a specialist artist will visit the children to teach them how to make large 3D sized sea creatures. This day will happen on Tuesday 12th September.
Please see the Parent/Carer Letter folder for all of Class Da Vinci’s relevant letters and information.
Our school trip for Terms 1 & 2 will be a visit to the Blue Reef Aquarium in Hastings on Monday 1st October. You will receive a letter about this very soon.
Please take a look at our topic pages, home learning folder, parent/carer letters and photographs!
