We don’t have any trips or visits planned at the moment, however, you will be told in advance if we do make any plans.
Our PE day is now a Tuesday. Please send your children into school in their PE kit to save them having to change at school. As we are approaching winter, pupils can wear a tracksuit over the top of their PE kit as we are trying to do our PE lessons outdoors as much as possible. Could you please ensure that your child is wearing SCHOOL PE kit, this consists of a white t-shirt and burgundy or black shorts. Trainers or plimsolls are also required on these days.
Home reading books must be returned to school with your child’s reading record (even if your child hasn’t finished their book) on a FRIDAY. These will be kept in school over the weekend and handed back out on a MONDAY (with a new book if needed or the same book if they haven’t finished).
Please read with your child at least 3 times per week and note this in their reading record.
Homework and spellings will start getting handed out in the coming weeks. There will be an update posted on this page or Class Dojo regarding this.
In Year 4, we learn to play a brass instrument. Our lesson is on a Friday morning and we have an instructor – Mr Hind – who comes in to teach us.

Greek Food Tasting
We were lucky enough to taste some Greek food from Acropolis, a vendor in The Stack Seaburn. We enjoyed chicken gyros, chips, salad, pitta bread and tzatziki. We wrote some reviews to tell you what we thought.
Every Friday morning, we have a brass lesson with Mr. Hind. Over the last few weeks, we have learned to play C, D, and E notes and are starting to make some fabulous sounds 🎺
On Thursday 22nd October, we took part in an athletics event. We all took part in different events, such as a 50m sprint, 400m long distance, overarm throw, and a standing long jump.
Children in Need 2020
Working from home didn’t stop Y4H from joining in with Children in Need! We played online Pudsey bingo, completed a scavenger hunt and had a go at drawing Pudsey himself!
