  • Welcome back to Spring 2! 
    Firstly I would like to say a MASSIVE well done to all the children in my class. Whether you have been in school or learning remotely from home, I have been SO impressed with your learning and the continued effort and passion you have shown. Last half term was a strange one, but you still managed to practise your handwriting, learn new concepts in maths, complete science experiments, learn and practice new words in French, learn about and display great knowledge of the Anglo-Saxons, make medieval jewellery,  improve your vocabulary and sentences structures… not to mention play in the snow!! Wow! What a busy half term!
    Having said that, I am counting down the days and hours until we can all be together  in class from Monday 8th March, and I can’t wait to see you all again 🙂 
    Always remember- be happy, be kind and most importantly, be YOU!
  • 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.  There are thousands of books that i’m sure your child would LOVE to read and examples of texts specifically suited for Year 4 are pictured here. Alternatively, there is a ‘book swap’ currently available at school, located near the Year 5 doors (the old finance office).  All you need to to is choose a book, take it home to read, then return it for another one. Easy!

    (Please note that social distancing rules apply and the hand gel provided needs to be used prior to choosing the books)

      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.

    In order for your learning to extend beyond the school day, there are a few things you could be doing while you are at home too.
    Firstly, read as often as you can. This can be on Oxford Owl (login details have been sent home but please let me know if you need another copy), it could be a magazine, a comic, your school reading book… ANYTHING! 
    Secondly, 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. A list of these spellings are also on this class page for reference.
    Finally, to further enhance their home learning experience, your child will have been 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. Again, please ask for another copy if you have misplaced them. 
    The learning opportunities are endless so have fun!!
