Welcome to our class page!
My name is Miss Maguire and I am the class teacher in 4MA. We also have Miss Ireland who is our wonderful learning support assistant every morning.
In year 4, we love to see each other learn and develop. It's important we always work hard and try our best. We encourage each other to have a positive attitude to learning and adopt a 'have a go' attitude, even if that means we sometimes make mistakes. We know that mistakes help us grow and achieve our goals.
4MA have PE on Tuesday and Thursday. Please make sure your child has the correct kit to take part (white top, black/blue shorts or tracksuit bottoms and trainers).
Children will take their book bags home on Friday's so they have chance to read over the weekend. Please return book bags to school between Monday and Wednesday so we are able to change everyones books ready to send home again the following Friday. Parents - please make sure you are signing your child's home reading log so we can see when your child has read at home.
We love reading at Kingsley and encourage all children to read for pleasure every night. Reading is a gateway into all areas of the curriculum. It supports the development of English and writing skills.
Reading plus is a fantastic way to improve reading and comprehension skills. We use reading plus in school and encourage children to complete 3 lessons at home as well.
Times tables is an important part of Year 4’s maths curriculum. It is a statutory requirement that all children in Year 4 are fluent in their recall of their multiplications up to 12x12. We work hard to practise our times tables through playing games, listening to songs as well as completing weekly quizzes. It is vitally important that the children practise weekly so that they are prepared for the Multiplication Times Tables Check (Summer Term).
Times Tables Rockstars
TTRS is a fantastic way to improve timetables fluency. You can compete with others, play in garage mode and check your fluency in soundcheck mode.
Please encourage your children to engage with this fantastic online learning resource. At least 5 sessions a week should be completed.
After School Clubs
We encourage children to take part in all our after school club activities as a way to relax but to also learn the importance of team work and providing a wide variety of new skills.
