Welcome to Miss Brown's class page.
Below is some important information for both children and parents.
Your child's timetable:
Water bottles & snacks:
Please ensure your child comes to school with a water bottle labelled with their name. Also, if your child wishes to have a snack during break times, it must be one of the following items:
- Plain biscuit
Wednesday - Indoor PE
Thursday - Outdoor PE
We will continue to run PE and Games lessons, and these will be outside when we are able to do so.
On the days that your child has a PE or Games lesson we ask that they come to school in their PE/Games kit. They will wear this kit for the whole day instead of their uniform.
Please ensure your child comes to school in the correct PE kit with a plain tracksuit and trainers/pumps to wear for the whole day. Children should not be attending school in replica sports kits, such as football kits.
Every week, your children will be expected to:
- Practise their spellings by using Spelling Shed or any other method (at least 15 minutes)
- Practise their times tables by using Times Table Rockstars or any other method (at least 15 minutes)
- Read their accelerated reading book with an adult (at least 3 times a week)
- Complete designated assignments on Mirodo as and when required.
Please can you ensure that the children's planners are brought into school every day and signed by an adult every Thursday night. Each time your child reads, they need to record what they have read and the number of pages under the appropriate date.
Log in details for the websites will be on the inside cover of your child's journal.
Children will be completing the Official Multiplication Check for all Year 4 children in June, so times tables are especially important. They need to know all of their times tables up to 12 x12 by that point.
The children will be given a new set of spellings to take home in their log books to practice each week. These books must come in every day.
The children will be tested on a Friday.
The children will be using a reading scheme called 'Accelerated Reading'. This scheme will identify a 'range of scores' for your child and recommend suitable books based on that range. You may think that the books being recommended to your child are 'easy', but this scheme has been designed to quiz your child on their understanding of the content of the book, not the fluency of their reading. Once your child completes their book, they need to bring the book into school and complete the quiz on an iPad in school. They will receive a % score and the scheme will then recommend a new book for them to read. Alternatively, the children could check on the Accelerated Reading app whether any books that they have at home fit into their 'range of scores' and if so, complete the quizzes available.
