Rowan Class

Welcome to Rowan Class!  Mrs Payne is the class teacher and Mrs Tanveer is the teaching assistant (in class in the mornings).

Meet the teacher - Rowan

We have been really delighted with how well the children have settled back into school after learning at home for so long.  We are all getting used to the new routines - especially washing our hands!  In line with Government guidelines, we are trying to keep the air flowing through our classroom as much as possible so will usually have doors and windows open.  This means that the classroom is a little cooler than the children are used to so they may need some extra layers of clothing.

Our history topic until Christmas is the Romans and we've started this with great enthusiasm.  Rowan class will have a Roman Day on Wednesday 11th November to bring the topic to life - a letter has gone out on Parentmail about this.

P.E.

Our P.E. days are Wednesdays and Thursday. Children must have their P.E. kit in school on these days (they can leave them in school overnight). It is advisable that this includes warmer clothing as we will be outside whenever we can.

If your child has lace-up trainers, please encourage them to learn how to tie laces (and make sure they don't leave them knotted when they take them off).

Please remember earrings should not be worn on P.E. days. If it not possible to remove earrings, then tape needs to be provided from home.

 

Home Learning Expectations

In Year 4 it is expected that children will read at home 5 times a week.. If your child is a competent reader, you do not have to read with them every time. However, we do ask that you listen to them read at least 2 times a week and ask questions about what they have read and sign the Reading Record accordingly. If children are reading the school reading scheme books they are also very welcome to read their own books as well. Please encourage your child to record these in the Reading Records.

We suggest 10 minutes a day of times tables practice and recommend using websites such as www.topmarks.co.uk to help make it more interesting for the children. The aim is for Year 4 pupils to know all the times tables up to 12 x 12 by the end of the year. If this is quite daunting for your child, focus on one times table at a time.

Homework will be set on Wednesdays via Microsoft Teams- more information on this to follow. It is due to be submitted online by Monday morning.

 

If there is anything that you wish to discuss with Mrs Payne, please do not hesitate to get in touch.  You can either email me or if you would rather talk on the phone, leave a message with the office and I will give you a call.
