Welcome to Year 4

In our year group, we have three classes named after books by David Walliams - Gangsta Granny, Midnight Gang and Queen’s Orang-utan. The teachers in Year 4 are Mrs Dowler, Mrs Sutherland and Mrs Gates. We are also lucky to have these other adults working within the year group: Mr Mason, Mrs Mason, Mr Roberts, Mrs Calmic and Mrs Crabb. 

To start this term, we are basing our work on Oliver Jeffers’ ‘Here We Are’ and will be finding out about the world around us. We will also be studying our year group author, David Walliams. Our Science topic is about living things, where we will be looking at different animals and their habitats. Alongside this, we have lots of exciting activities planned for Art, PSHE, RE, Music, Computing and PE. PE days are Tuesday and Friday. 

We have lots to look forward to this year. Keep checking back on the blog to find out what we are up to…

Hello everyone,

We have had an exciting and busy start to the term. We have been learning the new rules and routines and getting to know our new “bubbles”.

We have been to the library for the first time today. Our library day is on a Wednesday and we can visit during registration and at lunch. Sadly, we are not able to go to the library any other day or after school. Your child should have two library books that will last them the week. 

Just a few reminders:
- Earrings must be taken out for P.E and those with long hair must have it tied up.
- All clothes must be named. They are your responsibility to look after and find if you misplace them.
- Homework grids have now been sent home. We are looking forward to seeing lots of wonderful pieces of work.
- Parents are not allowed in to children’s cloakrooms or any other school building.

If you have any questions please feel free to talk to the adult outside your child’s classroom in the morning/after school or longer meetings can be arranged by phoning the school office. 

Many thanks
Mrs Sutherland (4MG) Mrs Dowler (4GG) and Mrs Gates (4QO)
