Hello Parents and Carers,

Many, many thanks for all you are doing as we negotiate this strange new way of being.

Please remember we are here and available through your Class Dojo account to help you with any aspect of your child's Home Learning or well-being.

If you have not yet signed up to Class Dojo, please do so as soon as possible. We are uploading lots of ideas for games,activities and fun things to do. You can also message your teachers and ask for any help or just tell us how you and your child are getting on. Each child has their own account which exists alongside yours, and they can upload files, photos and videos, which only family and teachers see, to show what they have been doing at home. 

We will continue to upload suggested work on here every Friday,as well as Dojo; feel free to choose what you do each day from our suggestions. There is no expectation that you will do everything.

With all our best wishes.

Stay safe.

Mrs Ayre and Mrs Clews.

 We hope that you have all had a good week off for half term despite the weather and everyone is feeling refreshed and ready to start the new half term.

This half term is going to be action packed with lots of interesting learning, Including the trip to Knowsley and the residential visit to Dearne Valley.

In English this term, we will using the text 'The Great Kapok Tree' and learning the skills of persuasive writing. This links in with our science work and our trip to Knowsley, as the book explores the theme of deforestation. 

In maths we will complete a unit on area and then move on to fractions, where we will look at equivalent fractions, fractions greater than 1 and simplifying fractions. There will continue to be a BIG focus on times tables again this term - by the end of the year, all year 4 children should be able to recall their timestables up to 12x12 and will be completing an online, statutory times tables test. We ask that you practise them, both in school and at home. Times tables really will help you with ALL areas of your maths work.  Don't forget that we also have TIMES TABLES ROCKSTARS for you to access on your computer, tablet or smart phone from home!  Your child has their own log in and password - if you are unsure of this, please come and see me and I will arrange for a new one to be printed for you. There will also be a club on each Monday in the computer suite, at 12.30pm for extra practice!

Our R.E topic this term is: 'Jesus the Saviour'. 

Our Science Topic is: Our Living world, where we will be exploring habitats, food cycles and changing environments.

PE: We will work on ball skills and then look at incorporating them into team games.

Computing: We will be looking at the importance topic of internet safetly beginning with a workshop in the first week.

Finally, our continuing History/Geography/DT/Art theme is: Invaders and Settlers, where we will explore the Vikings.

Useful information:

Spelling tests will be held on a Monday and new weekly spellings will be given out in order for you to practise them, ready for the test the following Monday. It is SO important that you continue to learn these. 


The children will continue to have their English and Maths homework workbook sent home every Friday, which is due in the following Wednesday. It is really important that you are completing and bringing homework in on time - this will be monitored. 

P.E - P.E kits are to be available in school every single day.

Any further information on what we will be learning in Class 13 over the next half term, calendar dates and other useful information can be found on the curriculum map in the files.

Thank you for all of your support!

Mrs Ayre and Mrs Clews
