Kindness Class

Hello, Dearest Parents.

Welcome to the Summer Term.  Miss Edwards and I  have exciting activities both in class and as a school to go through this term . Our aim with your support, is to take your children through this exciting learning journey, to help deepen their understanding skills and knowledge required to be achieved by the end of Year 4.

 As usual, your child will be required to complete and present projects in Science, topic and inspirations from the main texts. This is to help develop their creativity and independence.

Spellings and Times Tables will be undertaken each week and children will be expected to learn them and will be tested on them weekly. Please encourage your child to use these words in sentences. This will help them use the words in context and also practise the spellings.


Children are expected to read at home every day. The books should be changed twice a week and book reviews need to be complete before moving on to the next book. They are responsible for bringing their reading record and their class reading book to school every day and for changing their book when necessary. Please support your child’s reading everyday for 15 minutes and help them to record this in their reading record. Please sign the reading record every time you hear your child read.


This will be given on Friday each week and will be expected back by Tuesday the following week. It will usually be a Literacy and Maths task. Sometimes it may also be topic based. Each should not take longer than 30 minutes to complete. Please encourage your child to handle their homework book with care and presentation of homework and projects need to mirror the high expectations of school work.


Year 4 go swimming every other Mondays and will also learn basic skills in basketball and hockey on Wednesdays. Bikini is not an appropriate swimwear to be worn. Boys swim trunks must not go over the knee. Please ensure that earrings are removed on Mondays and Wednesdays due to safeguarding. Children must wear the appropriate PE kit – white top with black or red bottom for each lesson. Please ensure that all clothing is labelled.

Thank you for your continuous support, as we work together to help improve your child's academic and social skills.
