Year 4 pupils make up Class 4. I am delighted to have all the children back in school and I am very much looking forward to our year together. In class, I will be placing a strong emphasis on the growth mindset approach to learning as part of our whole school values. I actively encourage children within Year 4 to build on their independence, by encouraging them to think for themselves and to take responsibility for their personal organisation.

Home learning is actively encouraged with the practising of times tables on TTRockstars, spellings on Spelling Shed, maths activities on MyMaths, along with games on Nessy for those who have access to it. We also promote regular reading which is essential for children to further extend their vocabulary and to experience a range of writing styles and genres. In Class 4, children can access both the school and class library and they are encouraged to borrow books which appeal to their interests. Please encourage your child to read and practise their spellings and times tables regularly; 10-15 minutes a day can make a lot of difference. I look forward to meeting you all and if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
