Welcome to our Year 4 class page.
Welcome back to Hollins Grundy, the children have settled in well and are getting used to life in Year 4. PE for this half term will be on a Monday and a Tuesday. Children also need to remember to bring their instrument with them each Friday (we will talk about this at meet the teacher).
Spellings will be added to the downloads section, children also have their own copy that they have been provided with to take home.
Children will now be tested on different times tables on a Friday and will need to now learn all their timestables this year. We will now be practicing the times table check weekly in school each Thursday and Friday in preparation for their tests this academic year. Practicing this will also be the children’s weekly maths homework. Children can access the website using the following link;
I have uploaded some information in the downloads section below which provides some further guidance on the multiplication check. If you require any further information please contact me via the class email firstname.lastname@example.org
