Welcome to Year 4!
Currently to avoid children having to bring additional bags and clothing into school, children are being asked to wear their PE kits into school and both PE sessions will be taught on the same day to avoid doing this multiple times a week.
Year Four’s PE day will be on a Tuesday and children should come dressed appropriately for all occasions, including the cold and rain, as an indoor slot may not always be available and children are being encouraged to do PE outside as much as possible.
If children have their ears pierced, they will be expected to take out their earrings for PE lessons.
Children are ‘served’ their homework menu every half-term which is linked to the half-termly project in class. There is no minimum expectation for children to complete these tasks on a daily or weekly basis, but children can choose which tasks they have an interest in to develop their love an enthusiasm for learning. Children will be rewarded will a Class Dojo for each piece of homework completed.
Please listen to your child read 5 times a week and record in their School Planners. Children that do read 5 times a week will receive dojos so please make sure your child brings in their school planner each day for this to be monitored.
It is important that children are reading daily and practising their spellings and times tables.
Many thanks for all your help and support.

Online learning support
If you are isolating or accessing any learning from home, please access Microsoft Teams where you will find some online lessons and assignments that link to what the children will be completing in school.
Please follow this link here:
Click on sign in. Your child’s username is 15 then their first name, the first letter of their last name, then @bforest.notts.sch.uk
So, for example, if your child’s name was Fred Flinstone their username would be: firstname.lastname@example.org
The children should know their password as it is the same one to log on to the laptops in school. If they do not know their password or you need help with accessing any online learning, please ring the school office and they will contact one of us.
Children will be given weekly spellings and have access to 'Spelling Shed' - which children also have their own individual log ins for this too. Here they are also assigned different activities and tasks to work their way through. Activities are shown on the home screen or in the assignments tab.
