Hello and welcome to Class 4!
My name is Mrs Wilkinson and I am the class teacher. Mrs Calvert is our learning support assistant. Ours is a class of 26 children.
Blackburn with Darwen Wider Opportunities Music Service
Class 4 is very fortunate to avail of the lessons provided by the Blackburn with Darwen wider opportunities Music Service. Each term, we learn to play a musical instrument and hold an end of term performance to show everyone what we have learnt! During the autumn term, we will be learning to play the violin.
P.E. lessons are on Mondays and Thursdays. Your child will need a full PE kit (white t-shirt, blue shorts and black pumps). Please make sure this is in school for all of the half term.
Please bring these in everyday with the reading record signed. Books will be changed every Thursday. We want to make reading enjoyable and involve your child in this experience. Children will be encouraged to choose their own books to take as home readers.
Spellings will be given out each Monday to be tested the following Monday. Please practise these.
Talk homework for our big writing task will be sent home on Thursdays. Please help your child by discussing this for a few minutes as this will help them in their writing task on Friday.
Maths homework will be sent home on a Thursday. This will relate to the work being done in class during the week. Completed homework should be handed in by the following Monday.
By the end of Year 4 children are expected to know all their times tables up to 12 x 12. It would be great if they could practise them at home! Please encourage your child to have a look at the times tables section and try out the games and activities on there.
At Our Lady's we are always pleased to meet our parents. I will be available to talk to you any day before 8.45 and after school. If you would like me to ring you, please leave a message at the school office.
On the 14th of December, class 4 went on a very special festive trip to Each Step Care Home. The children sang carols and loved talking to the residents. They also enjoyed giving out the Christmas cards, pictures, tree ornaments and decorated biscuits that they had made in school. Their behaviour, performance and interaction with the residents made our school proud and was commented upon. They did put a smile on everyone’s face.
