Year 4 - Oak Class

Please can you make sure your child has a jumper or cardigan and a coat, when necessary, at school.

We are following government guidelines so all our windows and doors have to stay open.  Even on warm days we have had several children shivering.  We are afraid it will be like this for the foreseeable future, so envisage layering up this winter!

At the end of day collection,  we often find ourselves outside for quite a while and without a coat it has begun to be quite chilly.

Thank you for your ongoing support and understanding. 

Amazing homework this week Oak!

Well done! 

Your posters were colourful, clear and well thought out.  Here are some photos of just a few of your fantastic designs.

Week 3


This term seems to be flying by already! Our work continues this week with lots of fun learning opportunities including writing and improving complex sentences and also looking at the time line of the Ancient Greek civilisation and how the Greek empire has changed over time.


Please find below this week's spellings. You may notice that some weeks we learn a new spelling pattern but also revisit some of the past words we have learned. 


Your child should come home with a slip of paper on Mondays telling you how they did in their maths clubs (30/60/100/masters). We are sure they will remember to tell you but we will try to remember this in case they don't!


This week in history!

Michael Faraday was born in 1791. He was such an important scientist - watch this video and think about all the things we would have to do without if he hadn't made his discoveries!

Congratulations to our second Learner of the Week this term:      William

William has been working hard in all aspects of our

learning, joining in with class discussions and is always ready to learn. Keep up the great work, William!

Monday 14th September  Week 2


Please find below this week's spelling sheet. The children will be given one to bring home - if you do not need/want a paper copy please let your child know and they can tell us when we hand them out.


This week we carry on with our hockey lessons and learn more about the people of Ancient Greece. 

Remember if you have any quick questions you can email us on . If it is an urgent message, please contact the office.

What a great first full week back. Well done Oak! We have really settled into learning and are mostly into our new routines.


We are still waiting for homework books to be delivered, so they will be sent home as soon as they are!


Our first ever Oak 2020 Learner of the Week is...




Most of Oak worked super hard, as we expected, so it was hard to choose just one person this week. Lilly stood out as always being ready to learn, always listening, always taking part in class discussions, always doing what was asked of her and being a general all round superstar!


Keep up the super work and we will see you next week.

Monday 7th September


Our first full week! 

We are sure there will be lots of questions you all have and we have tried really hard to preempt all these in our newsletter which you will find below. 

You will also find a copy of our termly homework and we will put our weekly spellings on this page too. Please let us know at drop off or by calling the office if you would prefer a paper copy and we will send one home in your child's school bag. 

A note about our spellings: We follow the government guidance for y4 spelling patterns and also our school Read Write Inc. scheme. All the children start the year learning the same spellings although after a few weeks we will assess this and be able to target key words certain children need to focus on.


Have a great week and check back regularly as this will be our best place to communicate with you all!
