Welcome to Year 4!
Please make sure you always bring:
a waterproof coat in case it rains
a sunhat and sun cream in case the weather is hot
a named water bottle (no metal water bottles please!)
a packed lunch (if you're not having a lunch provided by school)
a healthy snack (fruit or vegetable) to eat at break time
your current reading book!
Our PE days are currently on Tuesdays and swimming on Thursdays.
Please come to school wearing your Burton School PE kit (green t-shirt and black shorts) on the Tuesday. When we begin outdoor games, and when it gets a little more chilly, don't forget to wear a hoodie (plain black or navy) and some joggers too! REMEMBER: no jewellery, please!
And on Thursdays, please ensure you have packed your swimwear, goggles, swim hat and towel! You will NOT need shampoo and body wash as there will not be enough time for showering.
PPA for Year 4 is on a Tuesday afternoon, when you will be taught by Mrs Markwick and Mrs Slater.
Parents and carers, it is so vitally important to us that we work in partnership with you to ensure that every child feels safe and happy.
Reading - What difference could I make as a parent?
The short answer is: a lot!
Parents, you are by far the most important educators in a child’s life and a child is never too old to be heard reading or read to, even if it's only for a few minutes a day! A bedtime story every day can be a nice way for you to spend a small amount of time together and wind down after a busy day!
The following guide may help give ideas on how you can support your child with reading at home.
But most of all, please be assured that your child's well-being is paramount to us, so let us know of any worries, fears or concerns, however big or small as we are all in this together. You can contact us as class teachers via the school office and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
