We will be sharing lessons with you very soon. 


Help your child prepare for their project

Look at the homework ideas that your child brings home and feel free to try as many as you like.

PE and Games
Year 4 pupils must wear a change of clothing for PE and games activities. A navy T-shirt and navy blue shorts are required and trainers or similar footwear. Navy t-shirts may be purchased from YC Sports. Children will not be allowed to participate without suitable clothing.

Days for PE:
Every Tuesday and Thursday.

During colder weather, tracksuits or other warm clothing may be worn. 

Every other week we will endeavour to give your children a spelling list with strategies to practise. This will not be tested, but every half term we will test them on their statutory list to check the progress they are making. Most Fridays we will send home a Maths sheet to reinforce the learning in the week. 

Your child can continue to develop their maths skills taught each week, by accessing their own 'Maths world' at Active Learn. Each child has been given a username and password. The school code is qlq7.

Big Maths test sheets (Learn its, CLIC and SAFE challenge) will be sent home every Friday. We would be grateful if you could sit with your child and look at the questions they need some support with. Reading books will be changed on a set day depending on their GGR group and every two weeks a Bug club book and maths games will be added to their Active Learn account. 


Hwb is an online learning tool set up by Cardiff Council to support your child’s education. There are many useful resources available to support your child in school and broaden their general knowledge.



Snack Arrangements 
If you would like to join the Lakeside snack club, a letter with the cost is available from the school office. There is a wide variety of fruit to choose from including kiwis, melon, tomatoes, cucumber, bananas, apples and raisins. 


To increase pupils’ confidence in communicating clearly with a variety of audiences including teachers, peers and familiar adults in everyday situations.


We will learn to:
  • use good manners, respect the needs of others and show a responsible attitude.
  • listen carefully and respond to more complex instructions correctly.
  • use the Internet and research books to carry out context based research in school and at home.
  • use a thesaurus to extend vocabulary.
  • learn all about coding and use this to develop games within Scratch.
  • recite 4,6,7,8 and 9 times table instantly and confidently.
  • use an I-pad effectively.
  • continue to write neatly using a handwriting pen to produce joined script and underline with a ruler where appropriate.
  • extend writing by including adjectives, adverbs and more complex punctuation, as well as more complex sentences.
  • read more sophisticated texts with expression, fluency and accuracy.
  • develop the skill of editing and re-drafting work in order to improve the standard.
  • become confident at applying literacy and numeracy skills across the curriculum.
  • continue to use our everyday Welsh vocabulary with 'Helper heddiw'.
