4PC - Mrs Parker/ Mrs Clarke

Welcome  to 4PC's class Page.

We are having so much fun this year and can't believe we are in the last term already!!

We have been working so hard in all our subjects and have learnt such a lot this year.



Remember we are always there to chat if you have any questions or worries.

Thank you always for your continued support.

Mrs Parker and Mrs Clarke

Important Information

Our time slot for the start of the day is

 9:10 - 9:20.

Our time slot for the end of the day is 

3:20 - 3:30. 


We will be in a year group bubble so the children in Year 4 will have lunch and play times together.


Your child now has everything they need in school so only needs to bring in their lunch box, water bottle and home learning diaries each day. Therefore they will not need to bring a rucksack to school. 



Please ensure your child comes to school in P.E. kit on the following day



*Please note that children can come into school in warm trousers, leggings or jogging bottoms on this day.


 If you have any questions or concerns please don't hesitate to talk to us.


Summer 1 Topic

Marvellous Monarchs & Exquisite Elizabethans

This half term we will delve into the Elizabethan era.

We will learn about Queen Elizabeth I, her changes to Britain, how she influenced exploration of the world and her feud with her cousin Mary amongst many other things.

We will learn about Shakepeare and his plays and even have a go at acting ourselves.  Sir Francis Drake will take us on voyage around the world and we will learn how he helped to defeat the Spanish Armada.



Our Current Topic - Learning leaflet

Home Learning

Please ensure your child completes at least 4 pieces of home learning a week. This could be anything from reading a couple of pages of their book, practising their times tables on TTRockstars, SPaG or attending any clubs (such as swimming, football etc).

*Check out the front of your learning diaries for the log in and password details you need.


For each piece of home learning, your child will receive a merit which can contribute to a home learning award each half term. Please make sure you record their home learning in their home learning diary provided and ensure it is signed and dated.


Due to Covid, the children will take home two new reading books on a Monday and these are returned on a Friday to be quarantined over the weekend. The reading diaries can come back in daily to be checked off for their merits.


15 merits = Bronze award

20 merits = Silver award

25 merits = Gold award

Times Tables Rockstars  

The children will be tested on their times tables knowledge four times a week. Please ensure you help your child to practise their times tables and ensure they log in to TTRockstars often as they will be given certain times tables to practise in line with the tests.


SPaG (Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar) Friday 

There will be a SPaG test every Friday. Please ensure your child completes their SPaG homework which will be given out on a Friday in their SPaG book.


Please ensure your child accesses Times Tables Rockstars, Spelling Shed, Letter Join and Bug Club at home as this will really help to support their learning and prepare them for middle school. 

Don't forget to add what they have done to their home learning diaries as this all counts as merits towards their awards.
