 Welcome to Year 4!

TT Rockstars is now going great guns!  We have more than half of the children with a "rock status."  We're now involved in a "battle royale" with Inkberrow who are now back ahead of us in the local league! 

  • 4S: Mrs Smart
  • 4G: Mr George (Monday to Thursday) and Ms Miles (Fridays)
  • Year 4 Teaching Assistant: Mrs Holmes

For more information regarding our topics, please click on our Year 4 Curriculum Page

Maths homework is the nine-times table - click here My Maths - remember it's a good idea to to the "practice" task first before attempting the homework.  The first level login is "astwood" and password "cosine242"  Then use your own username which is 3 numbers and a password of 3 letters.  If you don't have this please ask! 

Ongoing times tables work should also be done on TT Rockstars Remember to practise in the 'garage' game but try to improve your RockStar Status in the 'studio' game.  The system is designed to be intuitive and will respond to your child's speed and accuracy to give a personalised experience.  Use the same username and password details as on my maths.

PE is often outside so feel free to supplement the PE kit with jogging bottoms and a fleecy top etc.  Any old stuff will do - It's more important that your child is warm than that they have all the correct "school" kit.

English homework is below:  This is an extended research piece linked to our half term topic, Indian Spice.  Due in on Monday 9th December.  The spellings for 26th November are: invention, action, question, mention, position, solution.

Week of 25th November: 

Please remember the MyMaths homeworks this week and do any outstanding homeworks - lots of children have not done this! 

We have been learning about simile and metaphor and how these can make our writing really exciting!  Check out this great song!

Week of 18th November:

The choir are performing for the Grandparents' Tea Party on Monday 18th in the school hall.  We look forward to welcoming grandparents in at 2pm.  Come to the sliding doors aroud the back, off the car park.

After our assembly with "Shoebox Bob", we are hoping to beat last year's total of 163 shoeboxes.  Please encourage your children to get involved; We know it is a really busy time of year but a class box is a lovely idea for those pupils who don't have the support at home to put one together so feel free to send in individual items if you don't want to do a whole box.  

Pre-wrapped shoeboxes and leaflets are available at the office and more details about the appeal can be found here. https://teams4u.com/our-story/
