Year 4 - Oak

Welcome to Year 4!

Mrs Womack is the class teacher supported by Mrs Goodger. We are a friendly and hard working class and we are anticipating a productive year filled with lots of fun experiences and learning opportunities. We are building on our independent skills and thinking about our responsibilities as learners and important members of the school.

Things to remember

  • We have PE on a Tuesday afternoon and a Friday morning, don't forget your kit!
  • Our library time is on a Tuesday - library books  need to be brought in every week for changing or renewing. 
  • In Year 4 children are also given an accelerated reading book - these must be brought in to school EVERY day as the children will be reading these books daily at school.  They will be bringing a reading record home as well - please date and sign each time your child reads to you.
  • New spellings are learnt every week - they will be sent home on a Friday and children will have a spelling test on the Friday of the next week.  Please try and practice these spellings with your child.
