Thorpe Lea Primary School

'A dedicated community working together, nurturing a safe, happy school where all children can achieve their potential'

Year 4



Wow! We are already in Autumn 2. Where has that time gone?! I hope you had a lovely half term break and enjoyed Halloween.


We are now into one of the busiest half terms of the school year and we will be learning all about the Ancient Egyptians including a visit to Eton College to learn in their on site museum!


We will then slowly be building up to Christmas including our Christmas Concert which will be back at the church again where we will be performing a song with the accompaniment of our ukelele's, how exciting!


A couple of important bits of information:



Homework is sent out on a Thursday and should be returned by the following Tuesday. Homework consists of 10 spellings, a short Topic task as well as the expectation that children should be reading at least 4 times a week at home and practicing their Times Tables on TTRockstars. The Homework sheet will be stuck into their Homework books with instructions on what the children need to do. It will also be uploaded to this Class Page to download each week if you should misplace it!



Our PE days are on Tuesday (Indoors) and Friday (Outdoors). Please make sure your child has appropriate footwear for running (trainers) and that they have a jacket or a coat if the weather is cold for outdoor PE.


Reading Books

It is really important that the children are reading at home at least 4 times a week as this allows them to practice frequently and ensures they continue to make good progress. In addition to their home reading, they will have an opportunity to read at school everyday as well as an allocated day each week where they will be able to read with me 1-1. On each child's allocated reading day with me, we will replace their book if they have finished it or if I believe they need to be moved up a book band to be challenged further!



I will always be available at the end of the day and in the morning if you have any concerns. However, if you have any pressing concerns or anything more major that will require more time than a brief chat then please contact the office and they can let me know and I contact you as quickly as possible or arrange a meeting.
