Year 4 - Mrs Sedgwick



  • Welcome back to Spring 1! 

    I’d like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very happy and healthy New Year, and hope that you all stayed safe and well over the Christmas break.

    I am looking forward to teaching you this half term as there is a lot of fun things planned. Even though times remain very uncertain, we are all on this journey together and tomorrow will be a better day. 

    Always remember- be happy, be kind and most importantly, be YOU!

      PE will be resuming as normal this half term, with our sessions being on Tuesday mornings  and Thursday afternoons.
    PE kits need to be in school at the earliest opportunity, which should include a plain white t-shirt, plain hoodie/jumper,  plain black shorts/joggers/leggings and a change of shoes.
    A change of shoes and warmer clothing is essential for the foreseeable future, as where possible, we will be completing our PE lessons outdoors.




    Reading is an essential part of the school curriculum and can open up many doors for your child in the future. Reading frequently can improve your child’s memory, increase vocabulary, unlock creativity and is a low cost form of entertainment! With this in mind, the children are encouraged to read everyday at home. They will be provided with a individual home reading book, that closely matches their reading ability. We ask that parents sign the reading record every time your child reads at home, in order for the children to earn certificates to celebrate their dedication to improve.
    In addition, children will be given a spelling grid to take home at the beginning of the half term, which outlines the spelling patterns they will be taught over the coming weeks. We ask that the children practise these as much as possible while at home- a weekly spelling test will be given alongside daily taught spelling lessons to track progress.
    Finally, to further enhance their home learning experience, your child will be given individual login details to Tines Tables Rock Stars and Spelling Shed websites. The login details can be found in the front of their green home reading records. 
    The learning opportunities are endless so have fun!!
