Welcome to our class page!   .


Welcome back to our first term of the academic year!


We are so pleased to welcome you to our class page as we begin our journey in Year Four and look forward to sharing our love of learning with you.


Please click on the star for each term below to find out more about our learning.


Reading books

 Please can we ask that reading books and records come into school every day so that we can listen to your child read in school as often as possible. We encourage children to read to their parents or siblings at home and leave a comment in the reading log. Our new reading logs have room for pupils to write a comment and give the book or chapter read a mark out of 10. Encourage your child to think about and explain orally why they give that score.


Your child is also encouraged to choose a Reading for Pleasure book, ranging from Fiction and Non-Fiction, Poetry, Picture Books and also including brand new Graphic Novels.


Homework and Spellings

Each week, your child will be given spellings to practice at home alongside a project based homework.  We will also be setting the children challenges on Maths Shed. See below for more information. We look forward to sharing what you have been up to and the amazing facts you have discovered.


PE Days

In term 2, we have PE on a Wednesday, as well as on a Thursday.  This term we will be doing Yoga and Hockey.. 

Please can we ask that the correct PE kit is to be in school ready for lessons at all times including outdoor PE kit as we like to get outside and be active as much as possible.


If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact school where we will be happy to help you.

Follow our fun and learning on here and on our twitter pages too.

Times Tables!

Alongside homework, we will be setting times table challenges on MathShed to help improve your child's fluency when answering times table questions. At the end of the year, all Year Four pupils in England are given an online Multiplication Tables Check. They will have just 6 seconds to answer each of 25 questions so ready recall is vital!

We have already discussed this in class and we have timed ourselves with just 6 seconds per question.

You can test your knowledge too.
