 Staffing: Monday and Tuesday and Thursday and Friday mornings - Mrs Wildman. Miss Gingell will teach Owls on a Wednesday. Other, subject specialist staff will teach the class as follows on Thursday and Friday afternoon:

Mrs. Leach will teach Geography,
Madame Bentley will teach French
Mrs. Davies – Computing.

Mrs Hoogstaten - PHSE

Mrs. Stock will be Owls’ Teaching assistant.

Next term’s topic is entitled ‘Delightful Dragons.’ 
Our writing focus will be narrative writing. The stimulus for this will be: ‘Gorilla’ by Anthony Browne.
In history, we will be learning about the Vikings and in geography, we will be learning about rivers.Please see below for knowledge organisers.
Our science topic is ‘Animals including humans,’ with a focus on teeth and digestion.
Mathematics will focus on place value, addition and subtraction, multiplication and division and time. Please continue to practise your timetables as often as possible; these are absolutely key for future mathematical development.
Physical activity will continue to be a key component of next year’s curriculum and we start the term with invasion skills -including Tag rugby (Mondays with Mrs Wildman) and Fitness (Wednesdays with Miss G.) Please ensure your child comes to school on Mondays and Wednesdays in PE kit. They will require warm clothes, jumpers and tracksuit bottoms / leggings need to be black. Your child will also need a waterproof coat and outdoor trainers. Most physical education lessons will take place outside, so the correct clothing is essential. You will need to leave a pair of boots or outdoor shoes in school because we will try to have playtimes on the field even when it is wet and muddy. This will enable us to make the most of our beautiful environment.
Our class reader (which we have already started,) is ‘The Boy Who Grew Dragons’ by Andy Shepherd. We will also be enjoying many other texts including ‘How to train a dragon’ by Cressida Cowell. There are also other books by these authors that you might enjoy sharing. I have also been asked for more reading ideas, so here are a few: The Charlie Bone series, Horrid Henry (there is also an Early Reader series,) Dog Man, Bunny vs Monkey, the Tree House series. Jeremy Strong and Michael Morporgo (just check the story line because some can be quite sad and not necessary appropriate for year 4,) have also written a great deal of amazing books. Reading is essential for so many reasons, enjoyment, wellbeing, vocabulary and knowledge to name but a few. Remember ‘We learn to read and then read to learn!

Here are just a few ways to help your child:
Share the weekly timetable with your child.
Ensure they bring their reading book and reading record to school every day. Inside their reading records are login details, it is a good idea to take a note or photograph of these just in case the reading record goes missing. The Seesaw login will enable you to see photographs and videos of your child. We will let you know when they are posted. They can also post photos and work onto it from home.
Get to school in plenty of time for an 8:45am start.
Hear your child read every night and read to them.
Encourage your child to complete Spelling Shed and TTR at least 4 times a week. (Spelling tests are on Friday mornings.)
Remind them to complete their homework and bring in their folder in every Thursday. In addition to daily reading, Spelling Shed and TTR, the children will be set one small task each week.
Send your child to school with outdoor shoes / boots , a water bottle and always send a coat even if it doesn’t look like rain!
Your children need to come to school in PE kit on Monday and Wednesdays.
Thank you for your support, we are really looking forward to a fun packed year. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.


Thank you for encouraging your child to read daily. This is so important for both enjoyment, mental health and academic development. You learn to read and then you read to learn!

If your child can spend regular time on TTR and spelling shed this will also help them. Little and often is the key, but please don't worry if this isn't always possible, there has to be a balance. Down time, spending time with family and friends, being outside and doing physical activity are also very important.
A small task will be set on a Thursday and this needs to be completed and returned every Thursday.
Spelling Tests take place on Fridays and new spellings are set on Friday.

 Arrival Time: Just a polite reminder that year 4 arrival time is 8:45am.
