We have arranged to take our Year 4 class on a residential activity course at Braeside Education Centre, Devizes, for two days and one night in July. This is on Tuesday 19th and Wednesday 20th July.
This residential will offer the children new and exciting challenges. By staying overnight and working together in a team environment, it will help develop independence, confidence and an ability to recognise strengths and weaknesses in a constructive way. We feel that this is a great opportunity to prepare themselves for the longer Year 6 residential. The children will take part in a range of activities with fully trained and qualified instructors, with the support of school staff in a safe, controlled and secure environment.

In Class Four we will expect children to read at least five times a week. We have class books that we share, reading lessons, and read with other classes. We recommend books to each other and have lots of reading discussions. We are making the most of our new library books, and borrowing those as well as reading books.
Parents, please ensure that you sometimes listen to your child read, rather than let them read quietly to themselves, so that the understanding and accuracy of your child’s reading can be checked. When reading in school we use the acronym VIPERS to focus on comprehension aspects of reading. This stands for Vocabulary, Inference, Prediction, Explanation, Retrieval, Sequence or Summarise. You may find it useful to focus your questioning on these strands when your child reads at home. For your information please see the VIPERS pack below with further details and example questions.
Please use the Reading Diaries to record the reading your child completes and send them to school every day with your child’s reading book. We collect in the reading records every Wednesday.
Year 4 Forest School
In our next Forest School Morning we will be linking our learning to our Science topic - States of Matter. We will sort materials, observe and measure how materials change with temperature, and research evaporation and condensation.
