Welcome to Year 4!
Hello! My name is Mr Wymer and I will be teaching your child this year. On this page, you will find information about what we will be focusing on in class. Furthermore, important notices and dates can also be found so do keep an eye open!
Learning from home
BBC Bitesize are now giving daily lessons via their webiste. The work I set will be based on these resources.
You can find work for each day by following this link:
Below you will find an email address you or your parents can use if you want to contact me with any questions you might have about your work. It might be about how to do something or checking if you have done it properly. Please email me from your parent/carers account and not from your own personal address.
If you need to contact the school about anything else, do not use this address: ring the school in the usual way.

Fitt in promotion video
Have a look and see if you can spot yourself in the video filmed earlier this year!
In year 4, children have the exciting opportunity of learning the guitar. Sessions will take place every Monday morning.
In literacy this term, we will be reading 'Tales of Wisdom & Wonder'. These stories will provide the inspiration we need to develop our writing skills!
In science, the children have been building simple circuits. These circuits will get more complex as we move through the topic!
In history we have been learning about the Ancient Egyptians. Some of us even had a go at role playing the Pharoah as he discussed some strict new rules with his advisors!
Other important information
Year 4 have regular PE sessions throughout the week. Please ensure that your child brings in their full PE kit on Monday and takes it home to be washed on Friday.
In addition to this Year 4 will also have guitar lessons every Monday morning. Please ensure that your child brings their guitar to school every Monday.
Homework and spellings
Homework and spellings will be given out every Friday. Homework needs to be handed in to the class teacher by the following Wednesday at the latest, so it can be marked.
In year 4, your child will start to choose their own books to take home. With our supervision, they will sign out each new reading book and inform us when they have finished the book. We will hear each child read at least once every week, but please help your child by reading with them at home every day.
Our next class assembly is on 11/03/2020. It would be great if you could join us!
