Welcome to Class 4
My name is Sarah Brown and I currently have the pleasure of teaching Class 4 at Milverton Community Primary School.
This year the children are extremely fortunate to benefit from many adults in the classroom supporting their learning. Mrs Hards, Mrs Pyne, Miss Davy and Mrs Carter will all be working in Class 4 throughout the week.
In Year 4, we aim to develop each child’s independence and encourage the children to take responsibility for themselves and their classroom. This is achieved through wider responsibilities, whereby each child will have the opportunity to take part in a helping role, working together as part of a team to maintain a stimulating learning environment.
Homework is integral in consolidating, developing and extending learning. Therefore, it is expected that all children will engage in reading regularly outside of school. Additionally, the children will have weekly spellings to practise, accompanied with a spelling activity. Spellings will be set on a Monday and tested on a Friday. Maths homework will be set using MyMaths on a Thursday and should be completed by the following Wednesday. If your child struggles to gain access online, then the school computers are available during break and lunchtimes. Times tables are tested weekly in Class 4 and this will be on a Wednesday. Spellings and times table test results are given to your child on the day of testing and can be viewed in the recorded pages of their reading record book.
Your child will be required to have their correct P.E. kit in school all week and regular P.E. lessons are timetabled for Monday and Thursday afternoons. Class 4 will be swimming in the Spring Term (separate letter to follow). Forest School sessions will take place on Wednesdays this year, with our first session being Wednesday 26th September. Please ensure your child has appropriate warm and waterproof outdoor clothing with them.
Parents are always most welcome in the classroom. If you would like to speak with me, please can I kindly ask that you visit the classroom at the end of the school day. I am sure you can appreciate that mornings can be a particularly busy time, however if you cannot see me after school or something is pressing, then before 8:45am would be great.
I look forward to working with you and your child - helping them to flourish and grow with confidence.
