Year 4

Sycamore Class


Welcome to Term 3.


Mrs Pyne, Miss Higgins-White, Mrs Jones and Mrs Tarar are really looking forward to to continuing to work with you all this term.  

Mrs Pyne teaches Monday to Wednesday and Miss Higgins-White on Thursdays and Fridays.   Mrs Jones and Mrs Tarar will provide additional support in the classroom.

Please do not hesitate to speak to any member of the Year 4 Team should you have any queries or concerns.




It is so important for your child to attend school every day unless they are ill.  Missing a day will mean missing a step in their learning and can leave them feeling behind.



Our P.E. days are Tuesday and Wednesday.   Please ensure that the children do not wear any jewellery on P.E. days.


On Tuesday afternoons, the children will be going swimming.  Please ensure that your child has a swimming hat and girls should wear a one-piece costume, boys swimming shorts.  Please remember to bring a towel.    As it is the winter, please can you ensure that your child has a warm waterproof coat as we will be walking to and from the pool even if it is raining.   Goggles are not permitted unless there is a medical reason.  


Please ensure your children come to school on Wednesday wearing the correct outdoor P.E. kit to participate in their lessons:

  • White t-shirt
  • Black PE shorts or jogging bottoms
  • Suitable trainers
  • Red School Jumper/ cardigan
  • Long hair tied back
  • No jewellery, please





Children are expected to read five times weekly for a minimum of 15 minutes each time.  What they have read should be recorded in their reading records and their reading records and books brought into school daily.  Children who have read five times are entered into a raffle.  There is also an expectation that children should pass at least one quiz weekly on Accelerated Reader at their given level.  Additional prizes are awarded to children who 'Aim for the Top' and pass at least two quizzes each week.



Children are expected to log onto Times Tables Rockstars from home each week to complete their multiplication tables homework and to practise their times tables regularly.  We ask them to complete 21 minutes per week which equates to 3 minutes a day.  If there is a problem with accessing the website from home, please make the Year 4 team aware.



Children will be expected to log onto Spelling Shed to practise their spelling words for the weekly tests.  Again, please let us know if you are unable to access the website from home.


At Lumbertubs we believe our curriculum will never be finalised as we are always keeping up to date with our local community and relevant changes needed. However our unique Curriculum is what we base our learning around which is well sequenced in every subject whilst always Aiming for the Top.


Our Cogs enable the children to constantly build upon previous learning whilst adding new knowledge and skills along the way. By constantly revisiting our cogs year after year, the children will know more and remember more and will become ready for their next stage of their education.
