In Year 4 we help pupils to become more independent and engaged learners so that they can show their full potential across the curriculum. As a year group we are committed to high quality, collaborative work and showing off our individual talents when we can! In Year 4, we encourage each child to develop independence and resilience so they can be successful in all areas of the curriculum.
Letters that have been circulated to parents are available for you to view and download here.

PE is on Friday afternoons.
Parents will be informed about any details of any school trips throughout the year. A letter will be sent out in advance of the trip to your son / daughter informing you of all relevant details. Occasional walks around the local area are covered by a permission form that all parents and carers are asked to sign at the beginning of each academic year.
Homework is given out every Friday and due in on the following Friday.
Pupils are also expected to read at home every night and practise their spellings, times tables and number bond facts. Homework will range between an English / Maths task.

Please ensure that your child brings their reading book and diary to school every day. If you hear your child read at home, please encourage your child to write a short note in their purple diary. This is so we can keep track of the books they’re reading and the regularity of reading outside of school. Teachers are available on the playground in the mornings and in the afternoon for a quick chat, please feel free to ask any questions or raise any concerns that you may have. Should you need a longer conversation, we are happy to have a discussion but please make an appointment at the office. If pupils would like to bring a water bottle to school, they may do so.
Any money which is sent in should be sealed in an envelope. Please write your child’s name and class on it and the amount which is enclosed.
