Hello, I’m Mrs. Cain and I am the teacher in Year 4. 

In Year 4 we also have Mrs Seymour our teaching assistant who works 3 mornings a week with us, and Mrs Reilly teaches on a Thursday afternoon. 


PE is every Wednesday and Friday afternoon. Children need to come into school dressed in their school PE kit, navy shorts, joggers or leggings, white t-shirt and navy hoody. We always try to do PE outdoors when we can so please can children make sure they are dressed for the weather we have.


All children should have a school reading book now, they need to bring their book into school every day, even if they haven’t read at home that evening, this is because we try to read with the children as much as possible. School books are changed when the children have told us they have completed their book. Reading is such an important skill that is transferrable to all subjects across the school and it is vital that children are listened to and questioned about what they have read. Please try and read with your child as much as you can. Reading at home needs to be recorded on Seesaw so that we can keep track of how often your child is reading.


Children will receive their 10 spellings on a Friday, these will be assigned on Seesaw and Spelling Shed. Spelling tests will be on the following Friday morning. Spelling Shed is an amazing tool to help the children learn their spellings. Children should be practicing their spellings every day, there is more information about how to practices spellings at home with this pack.

Proud Cloud

The proud cloud is a positive influence on the class, children can earn their place on the proud cloud by demonstrating one of our learning powers or by demonstrating excellence.

Marvellous Me

I use Marvellous Me regularly to send messages and reminders as well as to let you know when your child/children are doing particularly well with a project or activity in school, including Star of the Week, Writer of the Week and Mathematician of the Week. I also on a Friday send a badge to the children that gained full marks on their spellings that week.


The children need to using TTRockstars to be practising their times tables, which are very important to learn this year.
