Mrs Orwell (4B) and Mr Myers (4Y) are supported by Mrs Mensah and Mrs Baker. Mrs De Juan is a trainee teacher in 4B too.
At St. Helen’s we are committed to developing the whole child through a broad and balanced curriculum. We ensure that we cover all areas of the National Curriculum.
Supporting Learning at Home
We recognise the extremely important role that parents play in their child’s education. We want to work in partnership to help parents develop their skills supporting their child’s learning at home. If parents would like any support with developing home learning please see Mrs Orwell and Mr Myers.
Every week we change the children’s home reading books, as well as sending home spellings and homework for the children to learn and complete.
In September we held a Curriculum Evening to support parents with understanding the expectations for Year 4. Please click here to view our presentation.
Year Four Expectations
The children in Year Four are assessed against the Target Tracker bands to ensure all children are making good progress.
|The end of year Four expectation is a 4S.|
Children are given targets to move their learning forward.
For a child to be scored as Secure at the end of the year it is expected that children have achieved at least 80% of these statements.
