Welcome to Year 4 with Mrs Arrowsmith and Mrs Romero

Hello Class 4 pupils (and parents),


I hope that everyone is well and adjusting to learning at home. 

Isn’t it fantastic to see the sun shining again? It certainly makes me smile.

I'm sorry we cannot see each other at the moment but I’m thinking about you all. I am really proud of your achievements in Terms 1, 2 and 3 and I know you will all continue to be the ‘Super Stars’ you are at home with your family.


It is important that we stay at home so that we can keep everyone safe. I’m incredibly thankful to our wonderful NHS workers and all our key workers during this time.  


Have you started your maths workbooks or comprehensions yet?  I hope you enjoy them. Please try to do one Maths workbook and one English workbook/comprehension each week, and remember to learn your spellings - maybe a parent can test you on them! 

If you find anything a bit tricky please email me and I will try to help. 

The email address is


I will set new work online for you after Easter. 

Don't forget to read every day and try some of our online resources too - Mymaths, Times Tables rockstars, Oxford Reading Buddy and Prodigy.


Lots of people are talking about Joe Wicks' PE classes which you might find fun - you can find it online at  

Please take care, wash your hands and help your parents at home,

Mrs Arrowsmith and Mrs Romero


Extra information

  1. Passwords for Oxford Reading Buddy, MyMaths and Times Table Rockstars, etc. are stuck into the inside cover of the exercise books that we sent home or in the home pack you picked up. Please follow the passwords carefully before getting in touch, check whether they are lower case or upper case etc. The Oxford Reading Buddy website has recently improved. When your child does the comprehension part of the reading on 'Oxford Buddy' they will need some support using the mouse or touch screen to make selections - but please do not support their choices in actually answering the question.
  2. Please persevere with the work sent home. The children might find it challenging but it has been set at the correct level of work to suit the children's learning. The planning was formed quickly in response to the virus outbreak so please appreciate the fact that there may be some hiccups for us all to overcome.
  3. We all know most children will approach work in a different way at home to how they do at school. All we ask of our amazing children is that they approach the home learning positively and do their best. Remind them that this is not homework, it is the replacement for their school learning.
  4. A routine/schedule/timetable is entirely essential. Home Learning will not work without. Into the routine there must be things to look forward to - a treat, a reward etc. I have attached the ‘Tips to help children with their home learning’ letter below.
  5. If there is a grammar word or other term that you don't understand and can't explain to your child, it sounds obvious but please google it and do not feel bad. Top secret: teachers have to do this sometimes too!


We will really miss having your children in school. Take care of each other and thank you for your ongoing support. Mrs Arrowsmith and Mrs Romero
