Welcome to Year 4!

Welcome to Year Four! I am so excited to be teaching your child and we have made a fantastic start to this new academic year.

We have 29 clever children who are supported by the wonderful Mrs Stansfield, Mrs Whittaker and Miss Ridehalgh. I hope to keep you all updated with our life at school on this page throughout the year, so make sure to check back regularly.

Please feel free to arrange a meeting with me if you have any queries or concerns. Alternatively, you can email me at: ldixon@trawden.lancs.sch.uk

In Year 4 Challenge homework will continue to be sent out on the first Friday of every half term. Children will receive a choice of six challenges, almost enough to complete one a week. The topic challenges are optional, and I really enjoy looking at any work or achievements that the children attain outside of the school day so please send any exciting news in. Alongside this topic homework, children will also recieve their weekly set MyMaths challenge and Spellings. Don't forget to read every night too!

Spellings are to be taught on a Thursday morning and a spelling test will be carried out on the following Wednesday. Children will have 10 spellings based on a letter grouping and two additional statutory spellings.

This year, we are having a heavy focus on improving our knowledge of the times tables, because at the end of the year, children will be expected to know the multiplication and division facts from 1 x 1 to 12 x 12. Any extra support within this area or practise that can be completed at home will really benefit your child.
