We enter to learn, we leave to achieve!

Background Slideshow


Welcome Page


Welcome to the class page for 4LG. 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.

This is a weekly reminder for year 4 regarding what resources are available to your children so they are able to continue with their learning journeys at home during this time.


As we enter week 10 of home schooling, we hope you continue to enjoy your new learning experiences and are making the most of your time through learning new skills, helping with jobs around the house, reading and exercising. If you need any help or if you have any concerns do not hesitate to contact the school.


A new week means a new homework task has been uploaded onto J2E!

There is also a variety of writing, designing and research tasks for you to choose from.

Pupil log ins are 15, first two letters of their first name and then their full last name. For example, Sally Smith would be 15SaSmith. The password is phoenix. We will continue to update the tasks weekly.


I am pleased to see that we have some keen readers in Year 4 and 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.


In addition to the above, there are lots of fun and useful websites to assist you in your home learning, listed under the useful websites tab on the school’s website. These have been updated and there is a variety of Maths, English and Science as well as handwriting and reading activities so be sure to explore these!


In terms of PE, Joe Wicks is broadcasting a daily workout on Youtube at 9 o’clock in the morning, which is a fantastic way to start the day. Other enjoyable workouts are by GoNoodle, also available on Youtube.


As I know year 4 have enjoyed reading the many books by David Walliams this year, I wanted to make you aware of the live readings of his books he has been sharing online.

Celebrations, Festivals and National Events


From 28th-30th May it is Shavuot.

Shavuot is a Jewish festival celebrated 50 days after the first day of Passover. It is a period of commemoration to remember the day that God provided the Torah to His people on Mount Sinai. Shavuot is also known to be a Harvest Festival, as a former tradition was for Jewish people to bring Bikkurim (the first and finest fruits) to the Temple in Jerusalem as a gift to God.


On May 31st it is Whitsun.


Whitsun celebrates the Christian festival of Pentecost which occurs on the seventh Sunday after Easter when Anglican and Methodist communities commemorate the descent of the Holy Spirit on the disciples of Jesus after his ascension from earth to heaven on Ascension Day.


If you have any problems accessing any sites or any further questions regarding supporting your child's learning, please let the Year 4 teachers know via the office and we will call you back.


I miss you all and cannot wait to see you, when you all return safely to school.
