Dear Parents / Guardians,

This half-term we are going to be very busy. We have now started our History topic - Ancient Egypt. During this topic, we wil be focusing on how ancient civilisations, specifically Egypt, were able to grow and be successful. In our Science lessons, we are focusing on classification. The children will be exploring how animals can be grouped and using classification keys to demonstrate this. 

Our class book for this half term is An Elephant in the Garden.

Homework is now being given out on a Monday every week and this includes Research and Maths. The homework needs to be completed and handed in by the Friday of that same week. It is important that the homework is completed to a high standard and your support in this will be very much appreciated.

Please can I remind you that the children have now finished their swimming lessons. They have been exceptionally behaved throughout their time at Clarendon baths. Miss Kavanagh and I are very proud of them. 

If you have any concerns or questions please feel free to talk to me at the end of the day. May I also remind you about ‘Drop in Tuesdays’. This is not a parents’ evening, so it will not be a one-to-one meeting with the class teacher, but it is a chance for you to come in and see what happens in Year 4. I am greatly looking forward to welcoming you all to these sessions.


Kind regards,


Miss K Blakeley and Miss Kavanagh

Class Teacher Teaching Assistant













Things to Remember

  • P.E. kits – remember PE is every Tuesday and Thursday.  Please ensure all children have a full PE kit in school.
  • Children must have their reading book in school every day. We recommend that you listen to your child read on a daily basis; this can be recorded in their reading diary.
  • We also encourage children to read a variety of different texts and therefore it will benefit your child if they read story books of their own choice, non-fiction books, newspapers and magazines etc (these can also be logged in their homework diary if you wish). We aim for every child to read to an adult at least once a week at school and books will be changed once the children can confidently read their book and fully understand it.
  • READING COMPETITION – Don’t forget the more signatures in a reading diary means the more chance of winning the school reading competition.  The children can get a signature in their diary from an adult at home, when they have read ANY text.  Once they have 60 signatures their name goes into a pot and they can do this multiple times; ensuring they have more chance of winning.  Last year’s prize was a KINDLE!
  • Homework and research will be given out on a Monday.  Please return these on a Friday; to be marked over the weekend.
