Year 4

Spring Term Update:


All our online learning has moved to our TEAMs platform. The children have been engaging so well with our home-learning and sending lots of examples of their work, which can be viewed in the 'Pictures of our work' file on the Year 4 TEAMs page. 


Please see the Monthly Mention Newsletter for more examples of our home-learning journey in Year 4.

Happy New Year


So... an interesting start to 2021.  Thank you for all your support so far.  

We will truly miss not seeing you all in school.  However, we are looking forward to starting this 'Home Learning' journey with you.  


Our 'Home Learning Platform' is Microsoft TEAMs so we will now be contacting you through TEAMs.  If you have any problems accessing your TEAMs account please contact us via the Year Group email  


In addition to your TEAMs Home Learning, there is a star above which has a vast amount of information and resources that you can use to continue and support learning at home.  Good luck!


We will see you for the register on TEAMs tomorrow Wednesday 6th January 2020.

Miss Brame, Mrs Yarwood, Mrs Betts and Miss Bailey would like to say a massive thank you for all of your thoughtful cards, words and gifts. We hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and a restful break. See you in 2021!

What a fabuloussly fun day we have had showcasing our knowledge of this topic.

Very well done to these children who received praise certificates this week!

Microsoft Teams- Password and Logins

Your child's Microsoft Teams login and password is in the front of their reading record. We will be using Teams if our bubble closes so we would like parents to help their child to log on and access learning. See home-learning plan. Please see Teams guide documents below to familiarise yourselves with the platform.


You also now have logins for Purple Mash, TTRockstars and Spelling Shed - in the reading record. For the rest of this half term, please allow your child to explore these programs as we may have already set activities for them to complete, or will do so in the future.

Well done to these children who were awarded praise certificates this week... 🌟

Year 4 have finished their Science investigation into how different liquids affect our teeth over time. We are shocked by the final results! Take a look for yourself...

Photos taken by our wonderful Science ambassadors!

Year 4 have thoroughly enjoyed using their knowledge of Ancient Greece to create their own amphoras. The children designed their Greek amphoras, thinking about colour and shape. They then painted their designs and allowed them to dry before carefully etching them. Take a look at our fantastic amphoras below...

We have already had a number of missing jumpers due to no names in clothing. Please ENSURE all clothes are named and encourage your child to look after their things - put them on their peg or in their tray.

Thank you.


Communication with Teachers and School

If you have any queries, concerns, questions and information before or after school please can we request that you send an email via the year group email, for example if your child has lost or forgotten something. If there is specific information that you need to share in an emergency or linked to well-being please contact the school office email  or phone 0161 9734149.

This will keep everyone covid safe and limit face to face contact.  Thank you for your understanding and support at this time.

Year 4 Homework 25.9.20 - These pieces of homework are to be written out and completed in each child's Homework books. Please have your child complete their English in the front and Maths in the back. We are also recommending children to use TT Rockstars for a couple of minutes each day.

It's been so wonderful to have all of the children back! We're looking forward to a brilliant year together in Year 4!

At Springfield we care, learn and achieve together
