Homework

 

Maths and spelling homework will be set every week on a Friday.  Maths homework should be brought into school on the following Tuesday for marking and a spelling assessment will be carried out on the following Friday.  

 

 In addition, children should read at least 4 times a week at home and practise their times tables. All children should have a password to access to the website 'Times Tables Rock Stars' to support their times tables learning.

Library

 

Every class has a weekly library session during which time they can exchange their reading books and ask for guidance and support for their individual book choices from our School Librarian.

 

Library day is Thursday.

 

 

PE days:

 

For all Year 4 classes are Mondays and Wednesdays. 

 

 

Due to COVID restrictions we ask that children arrive in school on their allocated PE days dressed in their PE kit. 

 

Please ensure your child has all the correct clothes for PE in school at all times. These must all be labelled clearly with your child’s name (including their shoes).

If your child wears earrings it is easier to remove them before school on these days. Children will be asked to take out their own earrings for PE. If they are unable to do so, they must be covered with micro-porous tape during PE.

 

Water bottles

 

All children are encouraged to bring a water bottle to school each day to drink regularly in their classroom and maintain good hydration. Please ensure your child’s name is written clearly on their bottle.

 

 

Mid-morning snack

 

Please provide your child with a piece of fruit or vegetable to eat during their mid-morning break. Parents have the option of ordering a small carton of milk.

Lunch

 

A healthy and nutritious lunch will help to boost your child’s energy levels for learning throughout the afternoon. We encourage all our children to eat a hot meal each day. However, if you choose to provide a packed lunch for your child, please remember that Northgate is a ‘nut-free’ school.
