Our Class

Welcome to year 4!  Mrs DePlanta and Mrs McMullen would like to offer you a warm welcome, we have missed you all so much!

In Year 4 we strive to make learning enjoyable, fun and meaningful. We aim to help your child develop and prepare them for their final two years at Hawthorn Primary School. We will work hard, play hard and Mrs DePlanta and I encourage the children to be the best they can be.
Their year is the time for your child to consolidate everything they have learnt in KS1 and prepare them for the exciting learning journey they have ahead of them.
Your child will be encouraged to develop the independent use of skills they have learnt previously, to start taking more responsibility for their own learning and to grow in confidence. We will encourage them to become successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens.

We will be putting lots of our activities, and work on the website and twitter for you to look at, so keep your eyes peeled!

If you need to chat about anything we are covering in class please catch me at the start or end of the school day.

I am really looking forward to our year together.

Thank you from Cath McMullen
Year 4 Teacher
P.E ~ This term we have our P.E. sessions on Monday and Friday so please bring trainers into school on those days.
Book bags ~ book bags go out on a Monday and Thursday with your child's homework and reading book.  Please make sure they are back in school by Thursday so we can quarantine and replace the books.
Homework ~ homework is sent home with the book bags on Thursday, this will be your child's weekly spelling list.  Maths homework is on TTRockstars where your child will be set weekly times table challenges against the other key stage 2 classes.   For each new topic I will send home a set of home learning activities based around their topic.  The children can choose which activity they would like to complete and they will earn 20learning points for each piece of homework they complete. 
Online learning ~ each child has a seesaw account so please download the app and encourage your child to use it.  I put activities on that will help with their learning and class.
