Welcome to Aughton Town Green Primary School Only My Best Is Good Enough For Me

Sycamore Class - Year 4

Welcome to the Sycamore webpage!


It is really exciting to be back at school and we have lots of new things to learn.


Welcome to Sycamore Class and Year 4. Your class teacher is Mrs Ryder. Mrs Blackledge will be our TA. Year 4 pupils will have Spanish on a Wednesday morning, building on the skills already learnt in Year 3 with Mrs Culshaw. Mrs Houghton will teach Sycamore class on a Wednesday Morning. 


Here is what we will be learning about this term.


English  - We will be reading fairy tales and 'Stig of the Dump' which links with our work on the Stone Age in history.


Maths  - We will be continue to work on addition and subtraction methods and using them with money and measures. Other topics this term will include fractions, position and direction and area. Your child will be taking part in the Multiplication Check In June 2022. It is very important that they practice their times tables nightly. We will be completing weekly times tables tests as well as working on TT Rockstars. To encourage children to practice and learn their tables we have a reward system. On completion of each award, children will be presented with a badge.

Bronze - 2,5,10,3 times tables

Silver - as bronze plus 4, 8 times tables

Gold - all facts up to 12x12

Platinum - all times tables and division facts to 12x12

Art/DT - We will be producing artwork linked to our topic of the Stone Age working towards making prints.


PE -  The schools sports partnership will teach PE on a Monday. Mrs Houghton will teach PE on a Wednesday. Remember to wear your PE kits to school every Monday and Wednesday.


PSHE - We will be discussing our goals for this year with each other.


So what else do you need to know?



Homework will be set on a Friday on the Dojo class page. This will be 1 piece of English or Maths.

Homework will be set on the 'Deepening understanding' website.

Children should spend about 20 minutes on each piece of work. Homework is due in on a Wednesday completing the work on the website or taking a photo to put on class Dojo. It is very important to complete homework because it helps us practice what we have been working on in class.


Reading Books

Reading books will be sent home from school. The children are to keep these at home and not return until they are finished. They will also be given a reading record which children must bring them in on a Wednesday so we can check on their reading and add any guided reading. A photo of their reading record can be posted on dojo as well. We will be rewarding children who are reading at home.



Online weekly spellings will be on spelling frame and dojo on a Friday ready for our test the following Friday. We have a spelling session three times a week.  Although the spellings are on the spelling frame website not all words are available so please check dojo for the full list.


Thank you for all your support over and hard work with your child at home. It really makes a difference.
