Welcome to the Summer section of Class 4P's webpage!
We will continue to have lots of exciting lessons and learning opportunities this term at St Matthew's, so please keep checking our webpage for information and pictures! 
 
Here is some important information that you need to know: 
Our class teacher is Miss Parry. 
Our classroom teaching assistant is Mrs O'Neill.
We also have Miss Parker and Miss McCann in class with us this year.
PE days continue to be Monday and Friday so please make sure PE kits remain in school all week. 

Homework will be given out on a Monday and should be returned to school every Friday. 
Children should continue to read at home every night as part of their homework and have their reading records signed by an adult.
Class 4P will continue to earn fantastic points and rewards for their reading efforts at home with our special 'Starbooks' display!
Reading at home every night for a small amount of time will make a huge difference in your child's progression across all subjects. 
 
Don't forget to practise your new precision and accuracy times tables homework! Who will make it to 'The Impossible Test?'
 
Keep up the hard work Year 4 and I am sure we will have a fantastic Summer Term!

We are still trying really hard to improve our spelling and handwriting. Children receive spellings every week as part of their homework and should be practising their handwriting at home as much as possible! If you have any spare time at home, ask your child to practise their neatest cursive handwriting! Below is a list of words that children in year 4 should be trying to spell.

We have started our new Geography topic for the Summer Term. Our subject question is, 'Why is London such a popular place to live?' Today, we looked at the Atlases and found London on a map of the UK, Europe and even the World. We looked at London compared to the size of other major cities and we labelled the main river that flows through London - The River Thames!
