Year 4

Welcome back!
We hope you’ve enjoyed your break and you’ve had time to rest, reset and refresh. We’re looking forward to an exciting new half term!

Have a read of the following poems and see if you can work out what our new module is all about.


I love to go swimming in a swimming pool,
I try my very best to obey every rule,
I always make sure an adult is with me,
I want to be safe as safe as can be.

Faster than fairies, faster than witches,
Bridges and houses, hedges and ditches;
And charging along like troops in a battle,
All through the meadows the horses and cattle:
All of the sights of the hill and the plain
Fly as thick as driving rain;
And ever again, in the wink of an eye,
Painted stations whistle by …




Learning Journals should be in school everyday as new information about reading books, trips, letters, homework and upcoming events will be added to it throughout the week. Homework books should also be brought in daily - make sure you check your homework timetable to see when homework is due.


So that we can get our learning off to a quick start, please make sure PE kits are in school everyday (take a look at our prospectus and Learning Journals to double check what is needed). Each item should be clearly labelled with your child’s name.


Water bottles should be brought into school daily to ensure children are hydrated and should have a sports cap.
