Dear Year 4,

We are so excited to see you all back at school continuing your Pilgrim journey in year 4. We are going to make sure that this year is going to be full of fun and enjoyment while learning about new and exciting topics. Although we hope that we can start the new school year in a traditional way and without any major restrictions, there will be some little changes you might need to be aware of. We will make sure that every one of you is happy with your new classroom as well as your new teachers. The year 4 staff are ready and very excited to be your guiding lights!

We wish you all the best luck in year 4!

Year 4 teachers

✅ Bring a named water bottle from home

✅ Wear your PE kit to school on Thursdays - remember some warm layers too, if needed

✅ This term's homework will be set on Google Classroom as before.  It will be set on a Thursday and will be due in by 8am the following Thursday.  We will be placing a significant focus on speedy recall of our times tables - so that practice will also be good for any extra challenge.  Homework Club will take place on a Monday lunchtime - please remember to ask in plenty of time if you are struggling.

✅ Wear your Forest School clothes every alternate Friday - and bring a change of clothes in case you get particularly wet or muddy

✅ Bring a reading book from home to keep in your tray if you like
