Hello and welcome to the Year 4 class page! My name is Mr Britton and I am very excited to be teaching Year 4, alongside Mrs Goldthorp . We are a happy class who love to learn. Our motto is to, ‘always try your best’ and we are looking forward to learning new things and rising to new challenges.
I strongly believe the triangular relationship of parents, children and teachers is necessary for your child’s success. For that reason, the school has systems put in place to encourage the beneficial relationship which home-school cooperation can bring for the pupil. You can talk to me after school about any concerns you may have or to discuss how best you can support your child at home. If you are unable to do this, you can also get in touch with me through the Class Dojo system or by calling the school.
Other Key Information:
- Reading – What’s the most important trait you’d like to develop in your child? If you’re like most parents, intelligence is probably high on your list. We all want bright, clever children. But remember: as a parent, you have the power to boost your children’s learning potential simply by making books an integral part of their lives. If possible, please set aside as much time as you can for your child to read independently or with a family member each night. Please note – a comment with a page number and signature should be made every time a child reads at home.
- Homework – Homework is given out in homework books on Friday’s and should be returned the following Wednesday. Please encourage and help your child complete their homework and leave a comment and/or signature. Please note – The spellings sent home for children to learn will be words that children are expected to know in Year 4.
- P.E. – Children will have PE on Friday afternoon. It is recommended that children come to school in their P.E. kits which they can stay in for the rest of the day.
