Welcome to the class page for 4JG. Please take time to look around the school’s website for key information. Also, make sure that you visit this page as often as possible as it is here that you will be able to view what your child is doing in school each week and every term via the Class Blog that appears below.
Below you will also find important information about your child’s PE slot as well as advice about reading at home.
Year 4 will have PE weekly and it is therefore essential that your child has their PE in school everyday. It is also important that each item of PE kit is clearly labelled with your child’s name in case things get lost.
Reading at Home
Reading at home is essential for your child to make the progress necessary with their school work. Your child will have a Reading Record Book that they bring home each night. If they read to you or another adult, or to themselves, please sign the Record Book to say this has happened. They will then get credits at school towards a range of reading certificates that they will receive in assembly.

Goodbye and good luck 4JG!
The time has come to say well done on making it through another year at Phoenix!
An unusual year to say the least!
Mrs Gammon and I would like to take this opportunity to say we have loved having each and every one of you in our class and it has been sad not being able to say this in person.
You are all superstars and I will miss you all very much!
As I am moving all the way to sunny Scotland, I am sending a virtual hug and good luck wishes to you all, looking forward to your next year with Ms Cohen!
Make sure you watch her video on the ‘Meet the Teachers’ page where you can find out more about next year as well as the summer homework she has set.
Year 5 is an exciting year with plenty of fun and interesting topics to look forward to.
There are plenty of resources below that can be accessed throughout the summer holidays via the links or worksheets I have uploaded at the very bottom.
There’s lots of new and continuing work so lots to pick and choose from.
Have a lovely summer break, enjoy yourselves, be kind to each other, and I wish you all the very best for the future!
Links for summer schooling.
Pobble 365 has a plethora of images and comprehension questions to flick through.
BBC Bitesize has activities, videos and games for various subjects and topics.
Well done those of you who continue to play TT Rockstars – fantastic job!
Keep challenging each other and don’t forget the teachers!
We have some keen readers in Year 4 so I’m sure you are all reading when you can. Remember reading doesn’t just need to be from books but child friendly newspapers (such as First News), recipes or magazines. It all counts towards increase confidence and fluency in reading as well as introducing a wider range of vocabulary. Additionally, in your child’s Reading Record you will find questions stuck in which you can ask them as you hear them read to further their understanding.
*NEW* Twinkl have a wide selection of texts for you to read and answer questions on with varying levels of difficulty to ensure you are suitably challenged. https://www.twinkl.co.uk/resources/new-2014-curriculum-resources-ks2-english-resources/new-2014-curriculum-resources-ks2-english-resources-lower-ks2-years-3-and-4/new-2014-curriculum-resources-ks2-english-resources-lower-ks2-years-3-and-4-reading-comprehension
