Sequoia

Welcome to Sequoia Class!

Welcome to Year 4 Sequoia. The class teachers are Mrs. Turner and Mrs. Moore and our learning support assistant is Mrs. Avril Thorpe.

 

Sequoia Class endeavours to nurture a sense of ‘growing responsibility’ in both learning and friendships. The class are currently enjoying activities such as Wild Life Champions and Scooter Club. A class with inquisitive scientific, artistic and atheletic minds, there are plenty of opportunities to be involved with school life!

 

We aim to teach a broad curriculum encompassing an in-depth and fun understanding of mathematics and English, keen scientific thinking and provide an experience of different religious faiths to promote broader cultural understanding. We are interested in the whole wide world!

 

Reading

Your child should have their reading book and reading record in school every day. Children are given the opportunity to change their reading book regularly by signing in and out of the library record. Reading at home with a parent or guardian is a highly beneficial activity for you to enjoy with your child, as often as possible will help with their continued development.

 

Spellings

Spellings are practiced every week. Sequoia's current focus are the prefixes 'il', 'ir', 'im' and 'in'. We are looking at different strategies to help remember these tricky spellings.

 

Homework

At the start of each term children will be given a 'pick and mix' homework sheet whereby they can pick and choose an activity. Please try to complete one activity each week. Homework books will be given out on Friday. Please return homework books to the homework tray by Wednesday.

 

PE

PE is currently on Tuesday and Friday, although it is helpful if a PE kit stays in school all week. We take part in activities inside and outdoors, so please make sure your child has a T-shirt, shorts, plimsolls or trainers and tracksuit bottoms if needed.

 

Please feel free to talk to Mrs. Turner or Mrs. Moore, either before or after school, or via the Class Dojo messenger service.
