Year 4 2020/21




Classes 9 and 10 will be SWIMMING on a Friday morning throughout term 6. Please can you ensure your child brings their swimming kit to school that day. The children are welcome to wear their PE kits, they may find this easier when changing. They will need a swimming costume/trunks and a towel. Hair MUST be tied up and earring covered or removed. 





CLASS 9- Thursday 10th June and 8th July

CLASS 10- Thursday 17th June and 15th July


Your child MUST bring wellies or walking boots. As you can appreciate, the children go out in all weathers and we cannot allow the children to enter the classrooms with muddy footwear.


Welcome to the webpage for classes 9 and 10.


As we come towards the end of Term 5, we will be saying goodbye to Mrs Kulbacki who will begin her maternity leave. Although Mrs Kulbacki has not been in school, she has been extremely busy working from home and we have enjoyed seeing her during our virtual meetings. We have all missed seeing her in person and wish her well for the exciting times ahead. We cannot wait to hear the news of the new arrival and send her lots of love at this time.


Home learning tasks will be uploaded each week onto our Google Classroom so please log on each Friday to see what learning activity has been set. In addition to this, weekly spellings will be accessed on Spelling Shed and we will be setting battles to encourage you to log on and improve your rapid recall of the times tables we have learnt in class.


On this page you can keep up to date with our learning journey and find out what we have been doing and what we will be doing in the future. Please keep checking to see our amazing work! We will be uploading pictures of the learning that is taking place in school.


Don't forget to look on the school newsletter to see which our our children have received the Merit certificates each week.


Transition to Year 5


We are sure that some of you may have some worries about the transition into Year 5, particularly following yet another disruptive year due to COVID-19. Please be assured that we will be beginning this transition when we return in Term 6. Time will be set aside to ensure information is passed on to the relevant teacher and your child will have visits planned towards the end of term so they become familiar with their new class teacher and class mates. 




Reading Challenge- Can we keep the trophy in Year 4?

Please can we remind children to bring their red reading records into school every Friday. They will remain in school over the weekend and be sent home again the following Monday so that home reading can be recorded. There is a termly tracker gird in each class to monitor how many times the children are reading at home. Our aim is for each child to read at least 4 times a week, when this is achieved the children receive a raffle ticket and are entered into the draw which takes place at the end of each term. Reading is a real focus for us in school and a life skill for children to develop. Please support your child as frequently as possible.

From Term 4, we will be using Google Classroom to upload our weekly homework. We would like the children to complete the task and submit their work each week. Each week a new sheet detailing the spellings and task set by your child's teacher will be uploaded. Please support your child in completing the activities on Google Classroom. 


Your child has also received log in details for 'Spelling Shed' this term. We would like the children to log on to throughout the week to support them to learn their weekly spellings in a fun, interactive way. The spellings should match the weekly spellings that are taught in class and form their weekly spelling test. There may be times when additional spellings are set, these could be subject specific or additional targeted spellings individualised for your child.


We would also encourage your child to log onto TTRS to continue to develop their rapid recall of multiplication facts.


Many thanks for your continued support and understanding. 

We encourage the children to develop skills as independent learners and celebrate their successes. Our 'Learning to Learn' characters are displayed in the classrooms and each week the children have an opportunity to nominate a class member to be awarded the 'Learner of the Week' certificate. The nominations are completed by every child in class, we encourage them to think about a class member who has demonstrated one of the skills and give an example of how they have done this.


There is a large certificate displayed in class and each week this is updated and the nomination slips displayed so that we can see why this particular person was chosen. It is a great opportunity for the children to reflect on the learning each week and how they and others have demonstrated independent learning skills.


More information about our 'Learning to Learn' characters can be found on the 'Curriculum' page on our school website. 



This half term holiday we would like you to complete one of the activities related to our theme – Tell Me A Tale. This is the perfect opportunity to work with your siblings – don’t forget to send us your photos through Google Classroom!


Have fun and lose yourself in a good book!
