Year 4 Newsletter

Welcome Back

A big welcome back to all the pupils! The teachers, Miss Bostan and Miss Cooper, have been hard at work preparing for the new term and getting the new Year 4 classrooms ready.


Year 4 are currently looking at Bear Grylls as part of the RESPECT curriculum. Bear Grylls is known for his skill and expertise in the wild. He has survived the harshest of conditions, in almost every continent on Earth. During this topic, we will undertake Bear Grylls style survival missions based in the Himalayan region of Jammu. We will develop and display all values of the respect curriculum, particularly teamwork, resilience and communication.

Home learning

To help support your child at home, we encourage parents to read with their child daily! Frequent reading will enable your child to increase their language fluency, comprehension skills and reading stamina and will help with all areas of the curriculum.

Support with homework where possible would help enable your child to progress further throughout the year. Please take a look at our fantastic homework menus, which you can find on the school website. English and Maths homework is given out on Thursday and is due in the following Tuesday. We also ask that the children practise their times tables as often as possible to help consolidate their skills.

Another excellent way to support your child at home, is by practising spelling their high frequency words or practising the spelling rule they are being taught that week. Spellings are given out every Monday and a spelling test is taken every Friday. Please see the attached letter for more information.

General information

We are really looking forward to our PE sessions with City in the Community sports coaches every Thursday. For safety reasons, please ensure that your child brings appropriate footwear for these lessons.
