Hello Year 4 from Mrs Summerfield and Mrs Cullen


Since we are encouraging pupils to use the internet more than ever for home learning we must, as adults, try to ensure they remain safe online. We encourage you to monitor their internet use regularly and carefully. If you would like any more information about this then visit the Parent Tab on our homepage.

Welcome to the the final half-term of this academic year. We are so pleased to be able to invite a limited number of pupils back into school! It will be great to see some familiar faces and catch up with some of the Woodcock Hill family. As we have to follow the government guidelines, this means that Year 4 pupils will have to be patient and wait a little longer before we can be together again. This does not stop Mr Ackling and Mrs Cullen thinking about our Year 4 class- we miss you all terribly. We understand that this time is difficult, but we wish you well and we want you and your families to stay safe. Remember, if you wish to contact Mr Ackling then please use the class email. Take care!

Maths- Decimals including tenths and hundredths and money.

Writing- Historical Reports about the Anglo Saxons

Reading- Non fiction texts like reports, explanation texts and encyclopaedia entries.
