It is crucial that the school office have the current and up-to-date contact details (phone numbers and email addresses). Please contact them if your details have changed.
At Mayville Primary, we pride ourselves on our open-door policy, but current circumstances make this more difficult. Therefore, if you need to speak to your child’s class teacher, you can either contact the office and we will get back to you as soon as possible. Alternatively, you could contact teachers via Google Class.
General Class Housekeeping
PE: Year 4 PE is on a Wednesday. Children should arrive wearing the clothes they need for PE on this day.
What to bring to school
We encourage children to not bring backpacks into school unless absolutely necessary so as to limit the number of items they bring in from home each day.
All your children need to bring is:
- A named water bottle
- A named packed lunch (if not school dinners)
- Their reading record
We are very excited about the work we will be doing in Year 4 this year. We will be teaching the full Year 4 curriculum.
Although there is a lot to cover, please be assured we will still be teaching a broad curriculum and children will have plenty of opportunities to take part in other subjects they enjoy such as PE, French, Computing, Art, Science, History and Geography. There will also be a full PSHE programme running throughout the year covering a range of topics to support pupil well-being.
Weekly Home Learning
In Year 4 the expectations for home learning do increase a little from Year 3. Weekly home learning will be shared on Atom Prime Learning to consolidate learning from across the week.
Google Classroom will be used to communicate relevant information about Year 4 and any half term projects that are set for the children. Link for Google Classroom: https://classroom.google.com/c/NTQ2MTgzMTUwOTc2
In Year 4 children will need to complete
- 15 minutes of reading every day – Please see below some suggested books we encourage your child to read this year
- Weekly spelling practice
- Weekly maths home learning
- Half-termly/termly topic learning
In Year 4 all children will take part in termly assessments to evaluate their progress and ensure that we are addressing any gaps in their learning. These assessments take place in second half of term on the fifth week. While we will work hard towards these assessments and ensure your children are prepared, we want our children to feel relaxed and optimistic towards the tests.
In June, children complete a timed multiplication test. The multiplication tables check is an online test for all pupils in Year 4. Pupils are asked to answer 25 questions on times tables from two to twelve. They are given six seconds per question, with three seconds rest between each question. It is important that your child practices for this to prepare for the test using the following website: www.timestables.co.uk/multiplication-tables-check/
