Hello year 4!
Hello Kestrels and Parrots! Welcome to Year 4!
Below is a reminder of the expectations for your learning in Year 4.
(Watch the video for a quick guide on how to log in to , and use, Purple Mash.)
In Year 4 we expect you to log in to Purple Mash each week to access your spelling lists if you haven't tested in class. There will be a quiz set each week for you to show us how well you have learnt your spellings. This is your spelling work. If you have not had chance to complete your spelling test in school, please complete it at home.
Keep skills sharp! Each week...
practise your times tables. Use the links below. EVERYONE has a login for TT Rockstars. Ask your teacher if you don't know it, or email us for the information.
Try to read at least 3x per week. EVERYONE has a home reader. You can also use MyOn Digital Library, Oxford Owls or your own books at home. Talk about what you are reading with your parents! Ask questions if you don't understand something, and as you read, make up the pictures in your head like your very own movie! Perhaps you could share a story with younger siblings in the home? We all enjoy a good story!
Please don't forget to email any of your completed homework to us! (Ask a parent for help - please put your name in the email!) Click on "Tap to Contact" for the email address that you need.
Mr Miller and Miss Molyneux.

HOMEWORK (Science and Topic)
what else are WE learning this term?
This year we are learning how to play the djembe, which is an African Drum. Parrots and Kestrels have their drumming lessons on a Thursday morning with their tutor from Bolton Music Service.
The music genre for the half term is Rock.
You could ask your parents for permission to listen to some Rock music on YouTube or another music steaming service? Here is a link with some basic information about the genre:
Children will take part in Forest School sessions every other week on a Tuesday, alternating with PE. Please make sure that your child is dressed for the weather that is forecast for that day!
Children will take part in PE sessions with Mr Stretch every other week on a Tuesday, alternating with Forest School. Please make sure that your child is appropriately dressed for PE - plain, dark jogging bottoms or leggings, a white t-shirt/long sleeved top and their school jumper or school hoodie, along with trainers. Crop tops, very short shorts and jeans are not suitable clothing for school PE lessons. Crocs are not suitable footwear. Your child will be outside for their PE lessons unless the weather is really poor, in which case, alternative activities will be taught indoors.
