A message from Mr Hilson
Dear Year 4 children and parents,
I am sorry that I didn't get to say a proper goodbye last week. I know you will probably be happy that most of you will have finished school, although some will have to come back this week depending on your parents' jobs.
You may feel like I walked away from you without saying goodbye but it was far from that. Teachers have families too and I have to protect mine from any viruses going around.
I am very proud of each of you. You have all put in an amazing effort so far this year and it is not to waste. Like I have said many times in class, learning is often building blocks for future life. What we have learnt already in Year 4 will serve you well in future school years and as an adult.
I think you are all fabulous and, as I sit here, putting my thoughts into your end of year reports for the teacher who takes over from me, I remember you all fondly.
I will be back to 'hi' and 'bye' properly when all of this Coronavirus has gone away.
Be courageous, be kind to each other and your families and take this opportunity to do different learning. You could learn how to cook, make a bed, sew, build a den and enjoy nature - this is a fabulous time of year to watch nature in action!
Please see the weekly home learning in the Yellow Star page from Mr Hilson and Mrs Prior.

Welcome to Year 4
Once Upon a Time...
A warm welcome to Year 4 for the 2019 - 2020 school year. The children will have PE on Wednesdays and Fridays but we recommend having their PE kit in school all week.
Spellings will be sent home with the homework and tested every other Monday. Homework will be set on Wednesdays or Thursdays (depending which teacher) and the children given a week to complete it. Homework will be Maths and English, plus there could be a Topic related activity.
The children will continue to use the Accelerated Reader scheme. They choose two books from the library at a time. One book should be within their current accelerated reader band and the other can be anything they want to read including non-fiction. We would also encourage your children to read whatever else they want to read at home.
Mr Hilson and Mrs Prior
A little note from Miss Light -
A massive thank you for all your generous gifts at the end of last term. They were very much appreciated and very thoughtful of you! I hope you had a wonderful summer and I wish you all the best for Year 4!
