Class 4 - Mr Moulton and Miss Wild

Welcome to Year 4!

Dear Parents, Children and Families.

Welcome back to school. It has been a great start so far and we are very pleased with how the children have settled into our class. We have been impressed with how well the children have approached their learning with great attitudes. We have had excellent discussions about ‘Our Class Code of Conduct’ and ‘Caring’ and it has been fantastic to see such thoughtful responses from the children.

Multiplication Tables Check.

In June every Year 4 child will undertake the Government’s Multiplication Tables Check (MTC). The children will be electronically tested on times tables questions. To help explain this further and to provide ways in which you can support your child I am holding two workshops this term. Please do try and attend one.

Monday 18th September 3:30 – 4:15pm and Monday 6th November at the same time. Please let me know if you and your child will be attending so that I can produce sufficient information packs. Please confirm by email – cmoulton@cressing.essex.sch.uk
