Welcome to Year 4 Blog

The Y4 team consists of the following teachers: Mrs. Purdom in 4JP, Mrs. Smith and Mrs. Smith (yes, that's right) in 4SS, Mrs. Wymer in 4CW and Mrs Drury in 4JD. The children are also supported by our teaching assistants: Mrs. Proctor, Mrs. Cooper, Mr Gartrell and Mr Bartholomew. Our classes are also taught by Ms. Reasbeck, Miss Lee and Mrs. Grimsley on Monday. What a team!

Our PE days are Tuesday (outdoor) and Thursday (indoor). Everyone needs to wear school PE kit on those days.

Tuesday is also the day when we go swimming. Each class has a 9-week block at Goodwin Sports Centre. Details will be given just before your class block is about to start.

We will be working in our woods on alternate Wednesdays. Everyone should wear appropriate clothing for these forest school sessions. We will send a text reminder when it is your turn.

Homework in Year 4 is given out on Friday and due in the following Friday. The children have a pink homework book - everything is kept in there. Our half termly spelling grid is in the back. We ask that you practise these - little and often is best. 

We know that the question children are mostly asked when they arrive home is, 'What did you do today?' The response is often, 'Nothing!' Well, here is where you can find out what nothing looks like. In our weekly blogs the children will share what they have been getting up to and show some of the wonderful work they have been doing.

Check in each weekend for our latest news.
