Welcome to Germany Class in Year 4. We have Miss Barrett as our teacher, who is also our school's Forest School Leader, therefore on her Forest School day (Thursday) Mrs Norton teaches us. We also have support from Mrs Thomas and Mrs Salt, our super teaching assistants, during the week.



Throughout Autumn, our learning will be based around the theme of "Trade and Transport".

Each Friday one of the following activities will be set online: MyMaths, or TT Rock Stars. Each activity will be set for the children to complete by the following Friday.


Remember to also read to an adult 3 times each week and have your planner signed to be awarded 1 merit.

Spelling lists of 10 spellings, following a set rule, will be given out each week and the children will stick them in their school diaries/planners to learn by the following week. However, if you ever miss when they are placed in the diaries or just want to know which lists are coming up please see the attached document with each of the Autumn 1's spelling lists.


Remember 10/10 for spellings will earn you 1 merit, plus if you can learn 3 extra spellings that follow the same spelling rule you can also gain an extra merit (if they are spelt correctly)!
