Croeso and welcome to our Year 4 class page
Welcome back everyone, we hope you've had a fantastic and well deserved Easter break
We have lots of exciting lessons and experiences planned leading up to the end of Summer Term. Take a peek at our curriculum overview below for more information.
Homework - each week, pupils will be given one extension activity to complete at home. We also expect them to continue practising times-tables and Nessy spellings. Children are always encouraged to carry out research into our topic 'Sustainable World' at home.
Home Reading- your child will be provided with a reading book along with a reading diary. As we have such a huge focus on reading at Glyncoed, we ask that you listen to your child read at least three times a week. We also ask that you leave a comment in your child's diary that refers to how your child has read their book.
Uniform – school uniform is compulsory. All pupils need to be wearing the school t-shirt (blue/white), school trousers or skirt and a school jumper. Suitable black shoes must also be worn.
PE days – Indoor PE will take place on Fridays and outdoor games lessons will take place on Mondays. Kit should include the Glyncoed t-shirt and blue shorts and a tracksuit for outdoor games. All pupils need trainers for games lessons. Please provide pupils with a bottle of water, sun cream and a hat so that they can be comfortable and protected when taking part in outdoor games.
Jewellery – please ensure pupils are not wearing jewellery to school that they’re not able to remove for PE and games sessions.
Water bottles – pupils are encouraged to have a water bottle in class to discourage pupils from leaving the class during lesson time.
Absences – children should not arrive at school until after 8:40am as they are unsupervised before this time. Latecomers need to sign in at the main reception. If your child is absent please call the school or provide a note explaining his/ her absence. Holidays during term time will no longer be authorised by the school.
School trips – children are encouraged to attend all educational trips which form part of their learning. Costs are kept to a minimum and all pupils are expected to contribute as a lack of funds can lead to trips being cancelled. We are always in need of parent volunteers.
