Staff in Raven Class
Mrs Dunmore is our teaching assistant and she will be in class every morning to support the children's learning. We also have Mrs Vaughn who is in class for 1:1 support every morning.
Miss Hand and Mrs Walter cover PPA on a Thursday afternoon.
In Year 4, the children choose their own books to read at home. Not only does this promote independence but the children pick books that interest them and therefore get more enjoyment from their reading. The children should still be reading 5 times a week and this should also include reading with an adult, where the adult can extend their understanding by asking questions about the text.
The children will be set weekly homework on a Friday, this will include reading, MyMaths and/or purplemash, times tables and spellings.
