'an outstanding school' Ofsted 2013
The Longest Reign!
We are very excited to be exploring different events that have occurred during Queen Elizabeth's reign and learn more about the longest reigning monarch. Each week we will be focusing on a specific decade that will allow us to celebrate her impressive reign!

As we have covered many of the spelling rules required for Year 4, we will now circle back and begin to revisit these in order to check the understanding of and implementation of these rules within the children's writing. Therefore, please follow the link below to find the entire Year 4 Spelling Rules list (Page 11-17) and talk through these rules with your children.
Alternatively, you could make a list of words containing a specific spelling rule from a reading book or create a tactile/ poster explaining a rule while including some exceptions.
HOMEWORK DUE IN ON FRIDAY THE 14TH JULY
PLEASE CAN YOU ENSURE THAT HOMEWORK FILES ARE IN SCHOOL EVERY FRIDAY AS NEW HOMEWORK NEEDS TO BE HANDED OUT.
Art Homework: Have a go at creating an optical illusion by following the instructions on the sheet in your homework file.
Mrs Wigley & Mr Culkin -Please continue your Mathletics.
Mrs Niemann - Please complete the Mathletics tasks that have been set online.
Now that we are nearing the end of Year 4, we are keen to get as many Mathletics exercises completed as possible. Therefore, we will be updating them every week and it is up to you to check regularly and make sure you are working your way through them.
If you have any problems or issues with homework, then please speak to your teacher before the Friday deadline. Ideally before Wednesday as this will give us time to print you homework and hand it out. This includes lost homework or if you were absent on the Friday as we can then give you the homework to complete.
Reasons to Celebrate:
We had a visit from Nick Carter to tell us all about his Swim Team Adventure!
If you wish to provide your child with a snack, please ensure that it is a fruit or vegetable as we are a healthy school and would like to promote this.
We will have P.E. lessons on a Monday and Thursday so please make sure you have the correct clothing (labelled) in school on these days.
We still have some children who don't have complete PE kits. Please can you make sure your child has a fully labelled PE kit including: socks, PE jumper and well-fitted plimsolls. Please speak to the teacher if you have any issues with this. PE kits should be in line with the school's policy and therefore no football kits are allowed to be worn during PE lessons.
Please keep your Reading Records up to date. You need to make a note of the book and pages that you have read and get this counter-signed by an adult at least three times a week. We will be checking the diaries every Monday and we would like to see 4 or 5 entries per week. Children can of course bring books from home to read, as well as school library books.
Dates for the diary
School closes at 14:00 on Thursday (20th July)
