Year 4

Welcome to Year 4





A happy new year to everyone and what an exciting start it has been! I have been so impressed with how the boys and girls of Year 4 have returned to school. They have come back to school full of enthusiasm for their learning and with an added level of maturity both in their manner and the quality of their work. Well done!

Term 2 is a Science-based topic across the school and we are focusing on Sound and Electricity - therefore if you would like to conduct any research at home, then please feel free! In Mathematics, we will be primarily focusing on Fractions, Decimals and Shape and in English we are looking at a book called 'The Wolves in the Walls' by  Neil Gaiman.


Children will still be attending swimming every Thursday but this will be finishing at the start of February. Our last session will be Thursday 7th February. Swim England will be doing some filming on 31/01/19 and letters regarding this will be sent out to be signed and returned. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact myself, Mrs Seddon, Mrs Devney or Miss Jervis.


Due to swimming, P.E. takes place on MondaysPlease make sure both PE kit are in school at all times (indoor and outdoor) and that all items have your child's name in them. We will be starting with Wrestling this term and will move onto SAQ (Speed, Agility and Quickness) Training afterwards. We also have a Tennis club (coached by myself) starting this half term which is a great opportunity for boys and girls to try something new. In addition to this, I will also be taking an Ultimate Frisbee club, starting in the second half of the term (week beginning 25/02/19).


Homework will be given out on a weekly basis. It will usually include spellings (which the children can now access using Spelling Shed), four complex sentences for writing and of course maths, which we will have worked on that week in school. If you could also practise the times tables as much as possible that would be fantastic as we will be starting to test the children daily and the children will be assessed in June. They must be able to answer each multiplication up to x12 within 6 seconds. A timetable and homework expectations can be found below, please familiarise yourself with this information in order for us to ensure the finest of work is received before the homework deadline - Tuesday each week.


Please keep up with reading at least 4 times a week with your children as it makes a huge difference to their learning! If you are able to ask them questions as you read with them this will also support their comprehension massively. As I have said before, children are allowed to read their own book every now and again, however, please make the school book a priority as it exposes the students to a wider range of texts and vocabulary.


I look forward to teaching this wonderful class for another term and I sure it will be another very successful term for all. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to speak to me or make an appointment with Mrs Renshaw at Reception.


Thank you for your support and all of the effort you put in at home! 


Mr Stanfield
