The River Singers

During our first couple of weeks we have thoroughly enjoyed reading our year group’s book, ‘The River Singers’, by Tom Moorhouse.

It is a beautifully written story about a family of water voles living by the river.

We have made collages of the river and neatly copied out our setting descriptions to stick onto them. We are very proud of the final product!

Welcome To Year 4

We would like to give a very warm welcome all children (along with their parents and carers) to the Yr 4 blog page. There are lots of exciting things that will be going on in Year 4 and it will be lovely to share them with you via the blog. The children have made a good start and are starting to get into good routines and this week we will start giving out regular homework. 

In Mrs Lees/ Miss Neil’s class homework will be given as follows,

Maths : given on Thursday to be handed in on the following Tues

Literacy/ Topic : given on Tuesday to be handed in the following Mon

In Mrs Wilding-Young’s class homework will be given as follows,

Maths : given on Tuesday to be handed in on Thursday

Literacy/ Topic : given on Wednesday to be handed in the following Mon


In both classes children should read for 15-30 minutes every night to gain fluency in their reading and ensure they have accessed a wide range of texts. They should write page numbers in the diary. Parents are asked to comment on how they feel their child’s reading is going at least 3 times a week; this will ensure a green on effort cards and of course help the children to value and enjoy their reading. We would like to thank you for your time and effort with this as we know it can be a struggle too fit into busy lives.

Please don’t hesitate to contact a member of the Year 4 team should you have any concerns.

Mrs Lees, Miss Neil, Miss Wilding-Young and Mrs Rhodes
