Welcome

Welcome to 4J

 

Teacher: Mrs Javed

Teaching Assistant: Mrs Pringle 

 

Timings

We are continuing to have staggered start times and end times to the school day.

Please drop your child off at school between 8:40 and 8:50am. The entrance door to year 3 and 4 will close by 9am and your child will have to enter school through the office. Please pick up your child at 3:20pm from the playground by the field.
 

Hygiene

To continue to minimise the risk of infection, there are opportunities for hand washing and hand sanitising throughout the day. Children are required to sanitise each time they enter and leave the classroom and before eating. 

 

 Here is some useful information about life in year 4: 

Home Reading

Your child will have a home reading book and record. We have assessed and chosen the level of this book for your child in order to ensure this meets their reading needs. We encourage children to read at home each night.
When your child has read at home, please use their reading record to write a comment, date and sign so that your child can add a sticker on their reading chart. When 35 stickers have been collected, your child will receive a certificate in assembly. 

Please use the document below to help ask your child questions as they read.

 Homework

Homework will be set on a weekly basis every Friday.
Your child will be given a group of spellings (word mountains) and KIRFs to learn.
These will be tested on the following Friday.
You can find the weekly homework on our class page:

Top scores will be sent via Marvellous Me

 School uniform

Please ensure that all items of clothing are clearly labelled with your child’s name.

  • Blakehill school tie
  • White shirt
  • Charcoal grey trousers / skirt / dress
  • Charcoal grey shorts / blue and white checked dress (Summer)
  • V-neck navy blue jumper with Blakehill school logo
  • Black shoes (no trainers or high heels)
  • Black/white socks or tights
  • Trainers can be worn for PE and at break times. Shoes or pumps should be worn in school at all times.

PE

PE is taught twice a week. On a Tuesday afternoon, we have outdoor PE and on a Thursday afternoon we have indoor PE lessons. Please be aware that where possible, outdoor PE lessons will take place and so your child will need to have a jumper and a warm, waterproof coat for this outdoor session.  
Swimming will commence in February 2022.

Your child will need: 

Indoor Kit: Children will need black or navy shorts, a white T-shirt and black pumps. 
Outdoor Kit: Long black or blue jogging bottoms, a white PE T-shirt and a warm black or blue jumper to keep them warm in the winter months. Children will also need suitable trainers too.

Your child’s PE kit should be in school at all times.

 

Water Bottles

We would encourage a named water bottle to be brought into school for your child to use regularly.  Bottles should be taken home daily to be cleaned. We ask that your child only has water in their bottle.
