Educating hearts, educating minds

Welcome to Year 4!



Welcome to the Summer Term! I really do hope you have all had a lovely Easter (as best as possible!) and enjoyed the time together. I can't wait to hear all about the lovely things the children have been up to and although it may not have been as busy as normal, I'm sure it was a lovely Easter all the same. I'm sure that you all, like me, are ready to get back to some sort of routine and order!

Parents, if at any time you wish to see me, feel free to send a message in through the @admin email or log onto DB primary and email me there. I check the platform on a daily basis and will do my best to respond within 24 hours. 

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! I will also be 'blogging' some of our activities and exciting learning through the Online Learning Platform. You can access your child's homepage by logging as you did during lockdown. 


Thanks again for all of your continued support. Lets get Summer started!  

Mrs Proctor


Welcome to our theme of...

As Readers, the children will be looking closely at an array of books linked to our Science knowledge of living things, animals and their habitats. 

As Writers, we will be using the beautiful illustrations in the text 'Leaf' to create our own outsider narrative. Whilst touching on issues of global warming, this book also has a positive message of not judging others because they are different. The children will enjoy studying facts about polar bears and arctic foxes and will in turn write an information report about an animal of their choice linked to our over arching theme. 


Children are set the following homework in Year 4: 

Spellings (on a weekly basis set on Spelling Shed)

Times Tables - (on a weekly basis set on TT Rocks)

I do check the accounts on a weekly basis and encourage the children to take responsibility to log on to complete their homework.

The children have two P.E sessions each week; one on a Wednesday and one on a Friday. Children are to come into school in their PE kits for the day - please make sure this is suitable for all weather. We will be going out as much as possible...in all weather!

Girls with long hair should tie it back and all jewellery, including earings, must be removed for P.E, or covered with tape (we cannot provide or apply this)

Forest Schools is also on every other Thursday. Children are to come onto school in suitable clothing. Please make sure that children bring in wellies to get changed into as our carpet is looking very muddy at the moment!

Outside of school, we ask that children are read with 3 times a week. They will have a book in school to read of their pleasing, and one at home to read with you. I cannot stress the importance of your child reading at home with you as much as possible. Even listening to an adult read has such a huge impact on children's development.
