Message from Mrs Kingston We have noticed increasing levels of playground chat about the game Fortnite— Battle Royale which is a PEGI 12+ gun battle game which requires players to work as a team. The main risks to children are interacting with strangers and also making costly in-app purchases. If your child is talking about Fortnite, please follow this link to find out more about it. https:// fortnite-battle-royal-parents-guide-keepkids-safe-gaming/

Year 4

Picture 1

Welcome to Year 4

Taught by Mr Sparkes 

Welcome to year 4. This is our class page and over the year this will be updated and lots of information added to over the coming terms.


Anglo Saxons

Our first topic in Year 4 is all about the ‘Anglo Saxons’, the children will be learning about how they had a significant impact on Britain as well as looking at where they settled, the culture they bought with them and other information about them.



This term we will be having two PE sessions per week in school, which will take place on a Monday and Wednesday. It is important for children to bring in the correct PE clothes and footwear as it will be unsafe for them to take part without. Letters will be sent home to children who have not brought in their kits.



Children will continue to receive weekly homework, this will rotate between comprehension, maths and writing. It would be beneficial if children were to complete their homework to help them consolidate learning. Homework will come home on a Friday and will need to be returned the following Wednesday.



Spellings and times tables are broken into weeks. Children will have a weekly spelling test. This term we will be revising all the times tables on a weekly basis.


Forest School

Forest school will take place on a Friday afternoon and the children are encouraged to take part. If you wish your child to take part in this please can you provide them with Wellington boots and a coat in the colder months, so that if it rains they can still take part.
