Year 4: Elgar Class

Welcome to Elgar Class,

The last term of Year 4 is upon us! Mr Walford, Debbie and Leticia can't wait to see the amazing work the children are going to produce.

Year 4 Summer 1 Half Term Bulletin



Spellings are given out and tested on a Thursday. Please help your child to learn these by using them in context of a sentence rather than in isolation. Please feel free to ask me if you feel unsure how to do this. Spellings will be based upon patterns and rules, including phonetic and grammatical rules. Sometimes they will include topic vocabulary and high frequency rules.


All pupils are expected and encouraged to read for a minimum of 15 minutes each day. Please support your child to do this and remind them to complete their reading logs. The Year 4 adults use these to identify which children are reading frequently both inside and outside of the classroom.

Homework is given out on Thursday and needs to come back to school on Tuesday.   We are having a renewed push this half term to ensure that homework is completed to the same standard of presentation that we would expect in school – neatly in pencil (unless otherwise stated.) The work will be based upon what we have covered in class so pupils should be able to complete it independently, but please support your child by scanning over and encouraging best efforts.  

If you have any queries, please don’t hesitate to talk to me after school for a brief chat, or make an appointment for a longer meeting if necessary.
