Year 4 (Borrowers- Mary Norton)

Welcome to the Year 4 class page. My name is Mrs Paterson.

In our class we are lucky to have Mr Sofokleus support us in the morning and Mrs Taylor in the afternoon.


Our topic this half term is Sound and Light. We are exploring how we hear, and how electricity helps create light. We have explored the inventor Thomas Edison.


We have swimming lessons each Wednesday in the morning, children will need to bring their swimming kits in each week.


We have Physical Education each week, on Tuesday morning with Mr Cable. Children will need to remember their PE kits. Our PE sessions will be both indoors and outdoors, therefore children will need to bring both types of clothing to PE.


Home learning, including spellings will be sent home every Friday, and they are due back on the following Thursday. Your child will have opportunities to practice their spellings in school, however they will also need to be practiced at home to ensure you child get the best result they can. We are also going to be practicing our times tables each morning.


During the week we are going to spend some time reading in the class, we have a wide range of books in the classroom, and a library full of books for the children to choose from. We are hoping to excite children about reading so we request that you can read with your child three times a week and sign any comments into their reading diaries.

Mrs Paterson.
