Happy New Year. As we go into 2022, we welcome back our wonderful children and hope you have all had a fabulous Christmas break. we hope you have all stayed safe and well.
We go into this new academic year, knowing how well our children can deal with the changes and restrictions that have been placed on our community due to Covid. The limitations that were in place prior to Christmas still stand. These restrictions are there to help keep both the children and staff safe.
May I remind you of the expectations for Year 4.

Our history-based work will ensure that the children are taught about a non-European society that provides contrasts with British history.
To continue promoting mental wellness and a sense of community, we will maintain our emphasis on teaching our Jigsaw Programme of study. A programme that advocates our Physical, Health, Social and Emotional learning.
The children will continue to play the glockenspiel, taught by the Hull Music Service.
We continue to place immense value on reading, and we encourage you to continue reading with your child. Please remember, we CAN change the reading books. Books will be changes on a regular basis. We ask the children to read at least 3 times a week. The Reading Reward Scheme has changed, reading stamps will not be offered. Reading tokens will be issued and collected as a class. The more the class reads, the greater the chance of getting the class prize and cup to be awarded for the week. Please feel free to message us via Seesaw and advise us of reading done at home so that we can issue reading tokens.
We continue to be very proud of the work that your children are doing and the progress they are making. We are so looking forward to taking these amazing children on their next steps on their learning journey. We hope for a wonderful and exciting new year, and as always, we thank you for your continued support.
