Year 4



Welcome to our Year 4 page! Mr Simpson will start our year of learning in Year 4.  On this page you will find lots of information about our class, the things we have been doing and ideas to help you with your learning. You will find links to our termly newsletter, our curriculum overview and our Crucial Knowledge. 


Water bottles: Please make sure that children have water bottles and that they are named. These need to be washed every night and returned to school the following day, filled up.

Reading: Please continue to support us by reading at home with your child for at least 10 minutes a night. We will also be reading with the children in school as regularly as possible so books and diaries should be in school every day.

Homework: This will be provided online on a Thursday and will be due the following Wednesday. Homework will be linked to the work the children have been doing in school. If children need any support with their homework, please let me know before Wednesday and we can have a look at it together.

PE: Year 4 PE will take place on a Wednesday and Friday. Children are permitted to come into school in their kits and stay in them all day on these days. Remember that PE kit is plain jogging bottoms (no zips/logos) and either their team colour shirt or plain white. Team coloured shirts are available to buy from school at a very reasonable price. Please ensure that children have suitable trainers / plimsolls as well. Children must wear their hair tied back and they will not be able to wear earrings. They will have to remove any studs themselves. Plasters will not be accepted.
