Welcome to Year 4:
Your teachers are Miss Mason, 4M and Mrs Allen, 4A. Mrs Gadbury will teach Miss Mason's class on Tuesdays. Mrs Lancaster will continue to teach 4A on Thursdays.
Summer Term is our favourite , as the trees come into leaf and the field looks so inviting!
We are excited about the residential visit to The Tattenhall Centre - a memorable experience for everyone. We also have the Queen's Platinum Jubilee to look forward to and we have started to learn a song to perform as a whole school for the occasion. You can find the link to practise the song at home below this message.
This term we continue with our recorder playing - what amazing progress we have made with our reading of music! We have a new History topic about The Anglo Saxons and in Art we are making masks. Our Science lessons are all about living things which will link with a topical theme for our time - how our environment can be improved to help pollinators thrive. We will also be taking part in the national Y4 times table assessment this term, so remember to keep up with regular practice using TT Rockstars or the Purple Mash tables app.
We are very proud of our Year 4 learners and all they have accomplished so far.

Together - Song for the Queen's Jubilee
Parents can contact teachers through the blue organiser - just make sure, please, that your child knows there is a message to hand in. You can also use our e mail addresses, which will be monitored on week days during term time and we will endeavour to reply within 72 hours. Please may we remind you that verbal messages at collection and drop off times are welcome if brief. If you need more time to discuss something, pop a note in the organiser to let us know you need a longer appointment or drop us an e mail to say so and we can ensure your query gets our full attention.

What's new ?
The Key Stage 2 library is currently having a makeover! We can't wait to see the results.
Weekly homework is now set electronically on Teams. It is set on a Friday and should be handed in (on Teams) by the following Wednesday. If you have difficulties in accessing homework on Teams this year, please let class teachers know so we can help.
Please, please do continue to read to your child and to hear them read aloud. Your child has been given a day of the week on which they should bring their books for changing, which is written in their organiser. In class, there is a wide selection of books available for their reading pleasure and children also are able to borrow books of their choosing from the KS2 library to read at school. It is fantastic to hear children telling us what they read at home and even that they have been inspired by our class book choices to find the same or similar books in the library or book shop.
Year 4 Statutory Times Tables Assessment
This term, all children will complete the times tables assessment. They will have the opportunity to see how the test works by firstly having a practice session. To prepare for this test, we have set times tables as homework all year long, whilst keeping tables a priority in class at school as part of the Maths curriculum and having some time allocated in school for using TT Rockstars or Purple Mash. The Purple Mash times tables app has the most similar format to that of the test itself and it is worth using this to practice.
