Our Learning

Project information to follow shortly ..........

Spelling Shed

This year we have introduced a new spelling scheme called Spelling Shed.  Every Friday, children will continue to be tested on their spellings and be given new spellings for the following week.  These spellings can then be practised by playing games online and earning points.

Your child's Spelling Shed login can be found in the first page of their reading record.


Reading is a key part of our curriculum and children can now take school reading books home with them once again.

Even though your child is in Y4 , listening to them read is as important as ever as it helps them to improve their fluency and intonation when reading.

Please listen to your child read at least three times as week and then fill in an entry of their reading record.

Times Tables

All children are expected to know all of the times tables by the end of Y4.  In previous years the children have covered 2,3,4,5,8 and 10 times tables.  We will begin by recapping and chanting these before learning the remaining times tables.  Please encourage your child to chant and recite the times tables as much as possible for a more rapid recall.  TT Rockstars is great for this and login details can be found in the front of your child's reading record.


Children should come into school wearing their PE kit on PE days.

Y4 have PE every Thursday with Ash

They also have PE every other Tuesday with Mrs Thornton.


We will be using Seesaw this year to set work for children and as a link between school and home so teachers and parents/carers can communicate easily with one another.  Parents/carers can also access Seesaw to see some of the work that the children have been completing during lesson time.
