Wandle Class Year 4

Welcome to Wandle Class!

We hope you are looking forward to an exciting year ahead in Wandle Class!


Our topic this term is:

Ruthless Romans!


We will continue to work hard on developing Literacy and Maths skills. Please try to make sure your child reads on a regular basis at home, sharing the experience if you can. Reading Records will be sent home weekly for you to make three comments about their reading at home. We also expect the children to make three comments of their own every week and their Reading Records will be collected in every Friday. Please ensure that their Reading Record is in school every day. It is also of great importance that the children practise their weekly spellings and times tables at home too. These will also be tested on a Friday. Education City activities will be given for the children to complete in accordance with what is being taught in class.


Below are some important points to remember to ensure a happy and productive first term in Year 4!


Top tips for Year 4:

  • Always be smart and punctual
  • Label your PE kit and school uniform
  • Bring your Reading Record to school every day
  • Listen carefully and be kind to others
  • Learn your spellings and times tables
  • Always try your best!



Children need a named PE kit (white t-shirt and blue school shorts). Children will also need trainers and a warm jumper for outdoor games. All items of clothing should be clearly marked with your child’s name along with their indoor plimsolls. We would like to remind the children that jewellery (other than stud earrings) and nail varnish are not permitted.


PE Kits are needed on the following days:

Kennet: Thursday

Wandle: Thursday and Tuesday (Brian Basketball)

P.E. kits should remain in school as days may be subject to change.



Children will also need headphones to be able to access the I.T. equipment in school.


A club timetable and permission forms have been sent out via ParentMail. If your child cannot attend the club, please write a letter to the teacher who runs the club. We look forward to seeing as many children as possible taking part in these extra-curricular activities.
