Welcome to Bradbury Class – Year 4


Dear Parents,

Thank you for your support with all of the home learning the children have had to undertake this year. You support of them and the school has been greatly appreciated. 

Year 4 

Children in Year 4 continue the learning journey that they began in Year 3 and at home with you.  They follow the Year 4 Curriculum, which is designed to help children develop their knowledge, skills and understanding in all curriculum areas, ensuring they go into Year 5 prepared to face the introduction of some new learning that comes with being in a new Key Stage.

What do the children do?

By now your child will be used to how the school day operates. Here is a gentle reminder. The day at school is broken into different parts. On most days before break there is English /Maths and after break the other subject of the two. After lunch the wider curriculum is taught with subjects such as History, Geography, Art, HPE and Science.

What do the adults do?

Staff at school work alongside your child and help to teach them the next step in their learning. They also demonstrate and model things to small groups or the whole class and set up games or activities to practise the key skills they need to learn.

Staff at school observe your children daily in lots of different lessons and activities. These help inform us about what intervention to make and how best to support them in their next steps in learning. There will also be times when your child may work in a small adult supported group this will be to either give them additional support or to extend their learning further with something more challenging. 

What does your child need every day?

  • Water bottle
  • Fruit (1 piece of named fruit provided by you if you wish your child to have two portions of fruit a day)
  • Weather appropriate clothing (sun hat/warm hat/raincoat – bear in mind the changeable weather that we have in England and that your child may spend up to half the day outside)
  • Reading book

HPE (Health and Physical Education)

PE lessons will be on Mondays and Fridays. Please make sure your child is wearing their PE kit when they come in to school on these days.


Please clearly label all your child’s belongings so we can return them to you quickly if they get lost!

STIKINS labels are great and by purchasing them, you raise money for our school too. Click here and enter school fundraising number 14399 when ordering. Theses labels stick to everything!

Reading Books

Your child should have a reading book appropriate to their reading level which they have in school every day. This can also be taken home to read if they wish. At home it is vital that your child engages in at least 15minutes of reading ideally every day. This can be done with a range of things such as magazines, comic strips, non-fiction texts. We operate the online reading log which can be found in your child’s google classroom. Please support them as much as you can.  

Check your Child’s Bag

Please check your child’s bag each day for letters. These could include bump notes, trip or visit information. 

If you would like to get in contact with me then please contact the office and we can then arrange a convenient time to catch up. 

Thank you for your support and for taking the time to read this lengthy letter!

Best wishes

Mr Woodhouse

Year 4 Teacher
