WELCOME TO HEDGEHOGS
We are looking forward to a really great year learning and having fun in Year 4!
Hedgehogs are taught by Mrs Davis on Mondays and Fridays and Mrs McIver-Brown Tuesdays-Thursdays. Hedgehogs are supported by Mrs Mitchell. Mrs Markwick (HLTA) will cover PPA every other Thursday afternoon.
If you need to talk to us about any issue concerning your child, then please catch one of us on the door at the end of the day, or contact the office who will arrange a mutually convenient time to meet.
Routines and expectations
Occasionally there may be a need to change these due to unforeseen circumstances, but we will endeavour to provide you with as much information as possible when changes are anticipated.
Þ All children should be ‘dressed to learn’ in named Burton School uniform.
Þ Hydration is crucial to learning so your child's named water bottle should be in school every day.
Þ Children who want to bring in a snack for break time are asked to put it in the relevant tray/basket. Children are not to access their lunchboxes during any other time but lunchtime.
Þ Full kit must be in school from Monday to Friday as often changes in the weather prevent lessons at specific times. This must include green school t-shirt, black PE shorts and trainers or plimsolls for outdoor lessons. All PE kit MUST be clearly named. No jewellery is to be worn, this includes earrings. These must be removed before every PE lesson.
Þ Your child is expected to read for at least 15 minutes at home daily. This may include sharing a book with an adult or sibling. They need to record this in their Reading Record. Please sign your child’s Reading Record daily and add supporting comments if you so wish. Your child’s reading Diary is an ideal way to keep the lines of communication open between yourself and the class teacher.
Þ Both reading books and Reading Records must be brought into school every day in their Book Bag.
Þ Children will be sent home weekly Spellings and these link closely to the Year 3/4 Spelling Lists, so feel free to learn more than those set each week.
Þ We have now adopted a new handwriting style (Continuous Cursive). Your child will be encourage to write in line with this style.
Þ It is expected that all children should write with neat, joined and legible handwriting.
Þ It is expected that all children should know and be fluent in all times tables from 1-12 by the end of Year 4. Please help support your child at home with these.
Thank you for your support with all these routines
