Welcome to Year 4
The teachers in Year 4 are Mr Cocks (Year Leader, Class 5), Mrs Chappell (Class 4) and Mr Moore (Class 6).
Our LSAs in Year 4 are Miss Biles, Mrs Dodgson, Mr Hunt, Mrs Lomasney, Mrs Loyal, Mrs Martyn, Mrs Serreau-Nardi and Miss Peel.
Each week, the children will have two sessions of PE - one indoor session (Monday) and one outdoor session (Wednesday). Children should come in to school wearing their PE kits on these days.
PE kit should consist of a red or white t shirt and black shorts (no football kits thank you). Black leggings/tracksuit trousers are advisable for colder weather. Dark blue or black hoodies are also advised for outdoor PE (no brightly-coloured hoodies please). For more information about PE kits, please see our school uniform section.
In Year 4, all our homework will be set on a Thursday and will be collected in on Tuesday.
Each week we will set 2 main pieces of homework - English and Maths. The homework is designed to help the children consolidate or extend work that they have been doing in class. The English home work will include spellings to learn for the week and how to practise them. It will also include a reading comprehension task for a book they are reading at home. Reading at home with an adult each evening is encouraged as this will help with their comprehension task. Maths homework is currently TT Rockstars practice in preparation for the Year 4 Multiplication Tables Check in June.
All Year 4 homework will be uploaded onto Google Classroom each week, so that you can access it easily from home.
