Dolphins (Year 4) 2021 - 2022

Welcome to Dolphins Class page!

Welcome back to Term 1! For the rest of this term, we will be studying Geography through our topic of 'Geographical Fieldwork Skills' - in particular we will be finding out about mapreading. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me via email (dolphins@guston.kent.sch.uk) or at drop off/collection for a quick, socially-distanced chat.

Reading Books

The children will have a reading book and record that goes to and from school as usual. The expectation is that children read at home at least three times per week and we will start to focus more on comprehension and understanding of vocabulary, as well as reading and decoding. If you could sign their reading record to let us know that they have read to an adult, that would be great! Also, it's lovely to hear of any other books they may be reading at home and we have put up a lovely reading display for the children to recommend their favourite books and authors, and share their reading journey.

myON is a new online library that we have invested in as a school! Your child's username and password is written in the back of their reading record book and I would like them to explore the site as homework until the end of term, reading at least one book a week. If you have any questions, let me know!

Keep an eye our for the new reading programme we have invested in - more news very soon!

Spelling

The children will have weekly spellings to practise and we will be focusing on how they can transfer this vocabulary into their writing. They have books which they can take home to practise these, any support with this would be great - thank you! Please could you ensure that the books come to school daily, as we use these regularly to practise spellings and keep their word lists for them to refer to.

Times Tables

We will be doing lots of time tables practise at school and any support that you can give at home would be fab. Here are a couple of great websites to practise times tables, with lots of online games and the children should also have their Times Tables Rockstars log-in's so that they can continue with that at home too. This will also be a regular part of their homework and I'll post the links on the homework page too.
