Welcome to Laurel Class
Class Teacher - Mr Mike Powell
Teaching Assistant - Mell
Welcome to Year 4!
I hope that you have all had a wonderful Summer- like you, we feel ready to come back to school and are excited and really looking forward to getting back to Laurel Class life. We have lots of fun ideas and lessons that we cannot wait to unleash!
On this page, I will gradually add information that we think will be useful to you. However, I am always available via Class Dojo should you have any other questions, as well as being contactable via the school office.
In order to support your child, we would like it if someone was able to hear them read at home as much as possible, ideally every day. If you hear your child read please record it in their reading diary. Once a child has evidence of having read at home four times they will be able to earn a leaf, leading to the chance to win a Big Prize!
There will be a creative project linked to an Enquiry each Term- details to follow soon! Also, alongside reading, children can complete activities on ActiveLearn and Doodle as before. We also welcome any additional home learning that the children wish to complete, for example anything related to our enquiry, and this will result in a visit to the class Prize Box!
Swimming will be made available for those children who need to top-up their skills in the pool, with sessions Monday afternoon starting 13th September. Additionally, PE kit can please be kept in school at all times. This consists of a t-shirt, shorts and trainers. We ask that earrings are removed or for PE lessons. If your child is unable to remove their earrings please provide them with plasters or tape to protect their ears during lessons. There will be P.E. sessions on Thursday and 1 other day, updates to follow!
Your child is welcome to bring their own healthy snack to eat at break time. Chocolate, crisps and sweets are not allowed- fruit or vegetables only!
We would welcome any volunteers who would be willing to come and hear children read. If you are able to help us please come and speak to a member of staff or get in touch via Class Dojo.
We appreciate your support with all these matters and we look forward to meeting you all soon.
Mr Powell and Mell
