Year 4

Summer Term 2018

I really cannot believe we have only one term left. This year has passed so quickly.

I hope you all had a lovely Easter and it was wonderful to see all the children again.

I have attached the new curriculum letter for the Summer Term. 

Class 4 were clever scientists ... thinking about thermal insulation and how to keep ice balloons from melting - well done!

Welcome Back Year 4 and a Happy New Year


I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas and New Year. Thank- you for all your cards and gifts. You are extremely generous.

We have a lot to look forward to this term, not least our performance at the Parr Hall. You will be making purses and studying the Ancient Greeks. For more information on what we are covering this term, please look at the Curriculum Newsletter.




Dear Children

Welcome to Class 4.

I hope you all had a fantastic holiday and are excited about returning to school and moving up into Year 4.

There are lots of fantastic things happening this year. I hope you will be very happy and that it will be a very special time for you.

These will be checked and signed every Monday. Please ask your parents/carers to sign them each week. If you have an important message from home then please leave your diary on my desk in the morning as you come in.

As well as reading each day you will also have maths and English homework each week. Maths will be given out each Friday and needs to be handed in no later than the following Thursday.
