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!


We are timetabled to have PE every Tuesday and Wednesday, but please have both your indoor and outdoor PE kit in school every day, as plans may change!

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 your bag each day for our Guided Reading sessions.

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 5 each Wednesday so please ensure your Spelling book is in your bag for this.
