Welcome to the new Year 4 class page.
I'm Miss Perry and I am super excited to be in Year 4 along with Miss Amos and Mrs Price.
Most of you already know me as I have run After School Club and Play Scheme for many years.
I have been a part of the Moorcroft family for over 12 years, as a Teaching Assistant and was lucky to be able to complete my teacher traning here too. (What a crazy year)
I was delighted when I was offered the position as Year 4 class teacher and could not wait to get started planning some exciting lessons for you.
I have a 17 year old son, who used to attend Moorcroft Wood, named Cameron. Even though he is taller than me, he is still my little boy.
I love animals! I have what I call a mini farm at home with lizards, chickens, a rabbit, tortoise and a snake. If I could get a zebra in there too I would because they are amazing creatures.
We have a great half term coming up learning about the Ancient Greeks, Where we live, how yoghurt is made and even Mama Mia in music.
Parents look out for the pictures showing you what we have been getting up to.
Our PE days are Tuesdays and Thursdays, children can come in kit for the whole day. No need to send their uniform. PE will be outdoors so warm clothing is essential as the days get cooler.
Homework will be given out on Fridays, this will include Maths, English and Spellings. I will put a copy of the spellings onto Class Dojo each Friday just incase they go missing. Spare copies will be available in class if any homework happens to get lost.
Homework to be returned by Tuesday.
Knowing their Timestables is important so please ask you child questions whenever you can. A quick few minutes in the car or walk to school can make all the difference.
To help build your child's fluency and ability, we ask that you listen to your child read 4 times a week if possible. Reading books will be changed on a Monday and Friday. Due to Covid-19 regulations, books need to be quarantined before we can reissue them.
I know this seems a lot to ask but your child should be able to complete their homework and practise their spellings without much help, maybe just remind them it's due in. Thank you.
If you have any issues or need to speak to me about anything please see me at the class entrance or drop me a message on Class Dojo or via the school Facebook page.
PE days are Tuesdays and Thursdays, don't forget you can come in your PE clothes for the day. Yay, no getting changed!
Read your book at home at least 4 times each week to get a raffle ticket - raffle tickets win prizes!
A few pages before school, before bed or even whilst Mom or Dad are washing up can make all the difference to getting you a Free Reader pass!
Remember to do your Maths and English homework and bring it back into school before Tuesday. Raffle tickets up for grabs!
Practise, practise and practise your spellings some more.
Your spelling test is on a Friday, let's aim for full marks each week.
One last thing, which is THE most important thing for being in Year 4...
Make sure you come to school super refreshed and ALWAYS smiling!
