Class 4G

Welcome to 4G.


In class 4G our class teacher is Mrs Gaines and our teaching assistant is Mrs Coe. 



Our homework is set at the start of every half term and will be collected in the last week. The activities can be completed in any order and at any time over the half term. A copy of the homework grid for the half term can be found on the link above and also inside your homework book. There will be a range of activities that are linked to the topics covered in class. You will be rewarded for any homework activities that are completed and returned on time.


Home Reading

You will be given a reading book to take home. Please aim to read at least 3 times a week and ask an adult to sign your reading record to show us what you have done. Reading books will be changed twice a week or when needed.  Please try to bring your book into school every day so that we can listen to your child read in school.



Our PE day is Tuesday. Our PE kit is a white T-shirt, black shorts and black school pumps. Your PE kit can be brought into school and it can stay in school until the end of the term. 


Home Learning

Should you be absent for longer periods of time this year, it is really important that if you feel well enough you do keep up with your learning at home. We will continue using the website LBQ for our home learning. Each day, you will be sent a text message with an access code which will allow you to access the work set for that day. Some children may also have access to another website called IDL which can also be used to complete learning at home.  Both these and other useful websites can be found on the link below.
