Dear Parents / Guardians,

I would like to say thank you to all the children for being so well behaved during their first week in Year 4. They have listened well and followed all the new rules without a fuss.

In English, we will be focusing on developing our description writing. We will be reading an extract of ‘The Iron Man’ and creating both character and setting descriptions.

In Maths, we will be securing our place value knowledge and understanding of addition and subtraction with 4 digit numbers.

In Science, we are focusing on electricity and how it is used around the home and other familiar environments.

Our class book for this half term is The Boy at the Back of the Class.  

This year, the children are attending swimming lessons. These will now take place on a Monday. Please ensure children are fully equipped and arrive punctually. I am pleased to say that the children behaved very well during their first session and I hope this will continue.

Our PE lesson is every Friday, so please make sure your child comes to school wearing their PE kits, which is trainers, black jogging bottoms/leggings, white t-shirt and the blue school jumper.

Normally we have an open door policy to parents but unfortunately this is not possible at the present time. However, we want to be available to share news about your child or to discuss any concerns or issues that you may have so if you do wish to speak to staff please ring the school office and we can arrange a time for either a phone meeting or a face to face meeting.

Although the start of this school year has been different, we would like to say thank you to all of you for your cooperation throughout the start of this school year. Please remember no water bottles in school and no fabric bags or lunchboxes.

Kind regards,

Miss K Blakeley and Miss Kavanagh

Class Teacher Teaching Assistant













Things to Remember

  • P.E. kits – remember PE is every 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.
