Hello and welcome to the Year 4 class page! The Year 4 teaching team is Miss Tweddell, Mr Norton and Mrs Clennell. Mrs Hannon teaches the class on a Tuesday when Miss Tweddell is out of class.
In Year 4, we aim to create exciting and challenging learning opportunities that enable every child to flourish academically, socially and emotionally. Providing children with the skills they need to learn, develop and have fun, both inside and outside of school, is extremely important to us.
Our set PE day is a Tuesday. On Tuesdays, children are required to come to school wearing their PE kit. Children will be provided with a red, school PE top to wear with tracksuit bottoms/leggings and footwear (trainers/sandshoes).
On Wednesdays, Year 4 go swimming at Gateshead Leisure Centre. Children are to come to school in their uniform and bring a swimming kit to change into. Please remember no jewellery is allowed. Children can be collected at 3:15pm from the leisure centre, or from 3:30pm back at school.
Reading is an extremely important part of your child's learning. To support this, children are expected to read for around 15 minutes per day during the week and will always have a school reading book, which is linked to their Accelerated Reader ZPD. A reading diary will be supplied to share information about progress between school and home. Please check, sign and comment frequently.
At the end of the year, there is a statutory Multiplication Tables Check (MTC). Learning our times tables, both in school and at home, will be a priority for us in Year 4.
If there is anything you wish to talk about, please do not hesitate to get in touch. We do ask that you continue to follow the school's latest policies on social distancing, but Miss Tweddell will always be available at the gate or by telephone.
