Welcome to Year 4's class page!
Here you can find out about our topics, useful links, important class information and up and coming dates.
P.E - P.E is on a Tuesday afternoon. We are asking children to wear their PE kits to school on their PE day. Children must have a white top and either black shorts, tracksuit bottoms or a Skort. Although, during the winter months, sessions will take place inside the school hall, please ensure your child is dressed appropriately for the whole school day - joggers and jumpers are advised, especially for the colder weather!
Snack - Children should be eating a healthy snack at break time. This can be fruit, vegetables, cheese, yoghurts etc. This needs to be bought in from home as school are currently unable to provide/sell fruit tuck.
Behaviour - In school we follow the good to be green. We are all aiming to become platinum by staying green for a week. We will be collecting monster points for lots of different reasons including behaviour, being kind and being helpful! A good score will result in a really good treat as part of fun Friday! Plus we all aim to be climb the monster tower to reach the goal and get a prize!
PPA - Our PPA slot is on a Wednesday, every other week.

This is our class timetable.
In our teaching and learning time we will get the opportunity to sit with our group and the teacher to complete our English/Maths/Topic work. When we are not with the teacher we will be working in our areas to complete independent jobs. These areas are:
Art Attack - Creative area
Digital Den - Computer/ IPad
Magical Math - Maths area
Let’s Investigate - Science area
Whizzy Writers - Reading and writing activities
Cymraeg - Welsh area
We will also have focussed science lessons, Welsh lessons, ICT lessons and P.E lessons.
We have spelling sessions three times a week in class.
During these sessions we will go to our spelling teacher.
In Miss Lynbeck's spelling class we will focus on RWInc Spelling Strategies from Set 2 sounds.
In Mrs Eden's spelling class we will be learning more complex Spelling Strategies from the RWInc Scheme .
I have included a copy of the RWInc Set 2 sounds below.
Have a look at the green words that show some of the spelling patterns we have been working hard on!
Have a look at the 'RED words'. These words are words we have to learn so we are able to use them in our writing - these words cannot be sounded out!
There is also a list of High Frequency Words - These are the First 200 words children should know how to say and spell.
We also have Handwriting class three times a week. We are split in two groups.
Miss Lynbeck's Handwriting Class -
We are looking at letter formation, long letters, tall letters, sitting letters on the line.
Mrs Eden's handwriting Class -
We are looking at joining our letters, just like the example below.
