We will be following the White Rose Scheme in maths and this half term the focus is on addition and subtraction before moving on to multiplication and division. We will also of course continue to practise our times tables skills!

The children will have weekly spellings to practise and will be set up on Spelling Shed.
They can access Spelling Shed at home to help practise their spellings.
The children have timetables and maths facts to learn and can access Timetables Rockstars at home.
The children take part in a Government “Times Table Check” in June, along with all Year 4 children across the country. It is important the children practise ALL their times tables throughout the year.
This is very important that children read EVERYDAY. Please encourage them, listen to them and show interest in their reading by asking questions. This helps them to understand their books. Children need to have their books signed by an adult every time that they read at home in order to move up the Reading Tree. This does count towards earning their Best of Broadfield treat.
They need to bring their book bags everyday with their reading book. Books returned from home will be kept in quarantine for 72 hours and sanitised before being returned to circulation.
Children have PE twice a week. Tuesday afternoon indoors and an outdoor PE lesson on a Wednesday. It is important that they have an outdoor PE kit in school at all times. PE kits should be brought in on the first day of a half term and taken home at the end of the half term to be washed.
ROBIN HOOD have swimming on Wednesday mornings. Starting Wednesday 8th September 2021.
What do you need to bring for your swimming lessons?
-swim shorts (above the knee)
-hair tie (to tie long hair back)
-a named bag to put all of your swimming things in
