Welcome To Otter Class
Dear Otters class and parents,
Welcome back! I hope you have had a wonderful summer and are looking forward to getting straight back into learning.
In English, we will be reading 'The Fox and the Star' by Coralie Bickford-Smith. The book is a lovely read with beautiful illustrations.
In PE lessons this Autumn, we will be working on our netball skills. PE is on a Tuesday and the children should come to school in PE uniform on that day.
In Geography, we will be beginning our topic called 'Our place within Europe'. We will learn about Capital cities, countries and geographical features of our country and other European countries.
In Science, we will be learning all about electricity and children will have the opportunity to explore circuits safely.
- Please come to school wearing your PE kits – PE is every Tuesday
- Please practice your times tables regularly and complete MyMaths activities
- Reading records must be in school every day so we can see your reading journey. Please try to read at least three times a week at home. Parents and carers, please sign the reading record so we can see they have read to you.

Year 4 - Multiplication test
In June, the new Year 4 Multiplication test will become statutory. Your child will need to take a short online test to make sure their times tables knowledge is at the expected level, answering questions up to 12x12. As well as practicing times tables and Rockstars at school, please ensure your child is recalling multiplication facts at home too. You can find further information about the test at: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/multiplication-tables-check-development-process
Below I have attached a link to what the Year 4 times tables test will look like, this will be very useful for children to use at home: https://www.timestables.co.uk/multiplication-tables-check/
