Welcome to Wren Class
Seating arrangements in class
Seating in class this year will not be by grouping children by their current attainment but by pairing children who we feel may work well together in the core subjects. We expect all children to become supportive of their peers and be able to offer this support in lessons where possible. The seating arrangements will change approximately once every two weeks to ensure that children are working with a range of people throughout the year.
Welcome to Wren Class, home of Year 4 at St. George's.

Reading at home in Year 4
Reading in school is a minor part of the reading children do so it is vital that they read at home at least 4 times a week and preferably more.
You should have received a reading record, either the same one that can continue to be used from last year or a new one. In this it is important to record the book that has been read, the date, the page number that has been read to. Children can record this themselves and then this can be signed by an adult.
In Key Stage 2 we are going to continue with the reading raffle, children will receive a ticket for the raffle after they have read ten times and had these signed by an adult.
As last year, there will be weekly spellings tests, these will test the Year 3 and 4 spelling list (which you can find below) with ten selected each week at random.
Times tables will be done frequently in school with all children expected to know all multiplication and division facts to 12 x 12 by the end of year.
The policy regarding homework has now been sent home, for clarification, there will be either one piece of literacy or one numeracy each week, sent home on a Friday and due in on a Thursday. This is in addition to spellings and learning times tables.
