  • ‘The Lost Book of Adventure’ by Teddy Keen
  • ‘Time Travelling with a Hamster’ by Ross Welford

There will be lots going on in Year Four this term, so please follow us on Twitter (@GorseyY4) to keep up to date with our exciting learning!

Important Information

  • Year 4 are timetabled to have PE every Wednesday and Thursday, but please have both your indoor and outdoor PE kit in school every day, as plans may change!  4JJ will have swimming lessons on Wednesdays in the Spring term so will need to wear swimming costumes instead of PE kits.
  • This term we will visit the school library every week so please remember to have your library book in your school bag. Please also remember to have your Reading Record in school on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays in particular.
  • Home Learning is sent home on a Wednesday, due for the following Monday.
  • Spellings are sent home at the start of the term and will be tested in groups of 10 each Wednesday so please ensure your Spelling book is in your bag for this.

Our teaching team includes Mr Johnson, Mr Allaby, Mrs van Spelde and Mrs Cheetham (Class Teachers) and Mrs Akhtar (Learning Support Assistant).
