Welcome back to a new school year!

Our focus for the first half-term is Geography. We will be following our 'Misty Mountains and Winding Rivers' journey, learning about the journey of rivers, significant rivers and mountains and how to categorise different types of mountains. Take a look the knowledge organiser below to see the full learning journey and our key vocabulary.

We are very excited to bring out learning to life through our river visit school trip on Thursday 16th September 2021.

PE is on Monday and Friday, please come to school in PE kits on those days.

Please make sure your child brings a named water bottle and their reading book and record to school every single day.


Reading is very important. Please ensure your child reads regularly at home and is changing his or her book on a regular basis. Children can access Accelerated Reader tests which they will need to pass to choose a new book in the classroom daily. They can also access these at home using their Year 4 launchpad.  If they take their quiz at home, they can let us know and then change their book at school.


We have a reading tree in our classroom. Each time your child reads at home please comment in their reading record. Every Friday we will check how many reads they have completed in order to give them a leaf for the tree. A certificate will be awarded for every ten reads. The aim is to reach 100! A certificate and prize will be given for 50 and 100 reads. The children are very excited about this, please support them to read at home, so they can add their leaves to the tree.

Our whole school rules are:

1. Be ready

2. Be respectful

3. Be safe


Spellings will be handed out on Friday and the children will be tested the following Friday. Multiplication tables will also be sent out on a Friday, there will be a focus set each week. Please ensure your child uses Times Tables Rockstars at home, login details are located in the front of their reading records.
