Learning within the classroom

This year we will have Mrs Cowling supporting us within the classroom.  Other members of staff will support children through interventions.  Mrs Aartse-Tuyn will teach RE and Jigsaw.

Our topics this term are:

English-We will be basing our work around the text 'Float' written by Daniel Miyares.

Maths-We will be looking closely at Place Value using Power Maths.

Science-Our topic for this half term is States of Matter.

History-Ancient Egypt.

PE-Our PE day is Tuesday morning each week and is provided by Sportscape.  Please ensure that children come to school in their PE kit that day.

Swimming lessons will be on a Friday morning.


In year 4, the children should be reading every night.  Written homework will go out on a Monday and will be handed in by Friday.  There will also be spellings each week.  If children do not hand in their homework by/on the Friday then they will be expected to complete it in their break time.

The children should also have access to: Times Tables Rock Stars and Sir Linkalot-Username: Daven Password: P7THJ6VYMW3

Fit Friday

Every Friday, we partake in Fit Friday.  This encourages the children to engage in a healthy lifestyle by making healthy food choices and exercising.  This year every Friday, children are able to come to school in PE KITS (not their own sportswear).  Children who bring a lunch from home will need to have healthy food options, avoiding foods like crisps, chocolate, sweets etc.  We will also partake in a sporting activity in the afternoon.


Please familiarise yourselves with our uniform policy.  This consists of black shoes (not trainers), black or grey trousers/skirts, a blue or green polo top, a navy jumper or cardigan with or without the school logo.  If children have their ears pierced, they must be studs only and need to be removed for PE/swimming.  Hair dye that is of an unnatural colour is not part of our uniform policy.


As a parent or carer, you can play a key role in helping your child to stay safe online.  Take a look at these resources on how you can support your child to use the internet safely, responsibly and positively.

Many thanks for your continued support

Mrs C Northwood
