Otter Class- Year 4

New Otters settle into their holt!

Looking smart and sensible.

What frisky little Otters!

What a great start to the new academic year. All the new Otters have been in class for the first week back and they have been bright-eyed, bushy-tailed and eager to learn. We are still in bubbles in class and playtime but things look like they are slowly getting back to normal.

I think I have matched all the parents and children now at pick-up time but, if there is anyone one out there I haven't met yet, please do come and have a chat with me. 

Please take a look at the half-term plan in the Curriculum Planning section of the website to find out what topics we are covering subject by subject; hopefully the Otters will be coming home telling you about their learning and will teach you a thing or two!

As usual, I would like to remind you about the importance of hearing your child read every night, if you can, but on a minimum of 4 occasions in the week, if time is short. We shall be continuing with the Reading Championship competition as it seems to be such a great motivator so, by the end of the year, your child might be sporting 6 badges.

PE lessons will be taken by the brilliant Mr Parsons on Mondays and Fridays (so sorry, I was originally informed it would be on a Thursday!) so please make sure you child comes to school in their kit on those days to maximise learning time.

Homework in Year 4 consists of a weekly spelling list or investigation, learning of times-tables and reading. Their 55 Club sheet might also come home with corrections to be made in order to help them in future tests and there will be the occasional piece of topic homework.


Should you have any queries and cannot see me or Mrs Webb in person, please use my school e-mail address: I look forward to getting to know all my little Otters and their families.


Many thanks.
