    Teaching Assistants:

    Miss Leaver (every day)

    Mrs Durr-Sorenson (afternoons - Monday, Tuesday)

    Mrs Manning (afternoons - Wednesday, Thursday, Friday)


    Please look at our class page to see the exciting things we have been doing.





    Children will have two pieces of homework a week – this may be one piece of English and one piece of Maths homework or it may be a task which supports learning in another curriculum area.


    Mrs Bass’s homework (blue folder) will be handed out on a Tuesday and will need to be handed in by the following Monday.


    Mrs Catt’s homework (yellow folder) will be handed out on a Friday and will need to be handed in by the following Thursday.


    We would appreciate your support in helping your child to complete their homework. Some homework activities can be completed by your child independently and some are intended to be shared with someone else at home. Homework is consolidation and reinforcement for your child’s learning and also gives you an opportunity to see what your child is doing in class.


    Spelling Shed – at least twice a week for 10-15 minutes


    Children already have logins for this website: A new spelling list will be set for your child to work on each week. This will be linked to the spellings they are working on at school in their year group spelling sessions or linked to their individual spelling targets. Please support your children in learning these spellings; we are able to check their progress with these online.


    Times Tables Rockstars – at least 3 times a week for 5-10 minutes

    We will log on each week to check children’s progress.


    In the summer term, the Year 4 children will be taking a new National assessment called the Multiplication Tables Check. Children will be tested using an on-screen check (on a computer or a tablet), where they will have to answer multiplication questions against the clock. So having a solid understanding and a quick recall of the times tables is very important - regular practice is invaluable to achieve this!



    Please continue to read fiction and non-fiction with your child and record comments in their reading record. All reading is positive, including newspapers, magazines and online information. Children should record at least three comments in their reading records a week. Children will also read in school independently, as part of group and in whole class reading sessions therefore they should have their reading book and reading record in school daily.



    P.E. DAYS


    For term 1, PE will take place on a Wednesday and a Thursday. Children will need to come to school dressed in their outdoor PE kit on these days. 


    MATHS, WRITING and READING Key Skills 


    At Thrupp, we have generated a list of key skills  for each year group. These are objectives from the National Curriculum which we feel are essential for your child to achieve before they are able to move on with their learning.  


    Below are the Non-Negotiables for Maths, Writing and Reading.



    Recommended Reading Lists 


    Below are lists of fantastic books for Year 4 and Year 5 if you would like some ideas about what your child could be reading. 

    Spelling - word lists


    Below are the National Curriculum statutory spelling lists for the words that the children should know by the end of Year 4 and the end of Year 6. Please support your child by practising these words at home.
