Apache - Year 4


Your teachers this year are Mrs Hastings (am) & Mrs Dodgson (pm).

We are supported in the morning by the lovely Mrs Walshe.


We are very excited to welcome you to Apache class this year. We have lots of exciting topics and activities planned to support your learning, which we hope you will enjoy.

Please keep an eye on our class page for updates.


Key information:


Reading: We recommend reading at home for at least 10-15 minutes per day and marking this in your home reading record. This way, if you are having difficulties, we know how to help you. We read in class too, so please make sure that reading records and books are in your bag every day. 


Drink and Snack: Please bring a named water bottle in every day and a healthy snack for break time (fruit, cheese, yogurt) as there is no Tuck Shop operating at present. Please ensure that your snacks are nut-free.


PE Kits: Please bring in a full kit including outdoor PE shoes on a Monday morning and take everything home again on a Friday afternoon to be washed. PE and physical activities can sometimes change days so please make sure your kit stays in all week. 


Homework: All homework supports our class learning and English and Maths activities will be set 

every Monday. It should be completed as fully as possible and should be handed back in on a Thursday morning. If you are finding homework challenging, ask an adult at home to help you or speak to an adult in the classroom who will always be happy to help.


Spellings: Spellings go home every Friday. Please ensure you practise your spellings at home - it makes a big difference to your work. 


We are always happy to talk to parents and carers. However, with the current COVID-19 situation, we ask that you make an appointment if it is more than just a quick question. You can also contact us through the school office or the school email system. If there is an issue that we need to discuss with you, the teacher will phone you on that day after 3.30pm.


We look forward to lots of fun and learning in Year 4!

Welcome Back Meeting

Following our Welcome Back meeting last week, here is a link to the PowerPoint presentation we presented to those parents who were able to be with us. It provides some useful information about life in Year 4 for you and your children.
