Together we care, together we learn and together we grow


Welcome back after the Christmas Break -  I hope you are all feeling refreshed after the holidays and are ready to start a new term of learning! After a wonderful first term spent together, I am so looking forward to starting our new term and topic! 

Parents, if at any time you wish to see me, I am more than happy for you to catch me at the end of the school day or if you would prefer to make an appointment, please make a note in the message book or contact the office so that we can arrange a meeting.

This year, Mrs Proctor will be with the class on a Monday teaching: Spellings, Times Tables, P.E. Computing and R.E.

Miss Sudworth, who is new to school this year, will also be supporting us in class with all of our learning, which is very exciting!

I shall be documenting our learning using the school Twitter account, @LittleLeighSch, so please make sure you are following us to see all of our wonderful experiences!

Children in Year 4 receive the following homework:

English (on a weekly rotation)

Mathematics (on a weekly rotation)

Spellings (on a weekly basis)

Learning Log (on a half term basis)

Times Tables - please work with your child on learning their times tables. 

All homework should be handed  in on time unless otherwise agreed with the class teacher.


The children have two P.E sessions each week; one on a Monday and one on a Wednesday. We recommend kits are brought in a Monday and taken home on a Friday.

Children should have both an indoor and outdoor kit in case of inclement weather during the colder months.

Girls with long hair should tie it back and all jewellery, including earings, must be removed for P.E.

Any child who does not have a suitable P.E kit may be asked to complete alternate work.


Children receive one guided reading session with the teacher every week. Aside of this, they have follow up sessions which are linked to their text. They will also have the opportunity to participate in SPaG (spelling, punctuation and grammar) activities during guided reading sessions. I will endeavour to read with your child during any quiet reading time throughout the day but I cannot stress the importance of your child reading at home with you as much as possible.

Outside of school, we ask that children are read with 3 times a week. If you would like any extra support in how to get the most out of reading with your child, please do not hesitate to come and speak to me.
