Miss Gradwell

Year 4 Classteacher

Welcome To Year 4!


In Year 4, our class teacher is Miss Gradwell. Our Teaching Assistants are Mrs Mustard and Mrs Lawrenson.

Things to remember in Year 4:


Dinner money and toast money should be paid on a Monday. Toast is £1.25 per week. All money should be sent in a named envelope.

Home readers are changed each Monday. Please ensure that these are signed and brought into school every Monday. If your child has not finished their book please leave a note in their book and they will be able to keep it for another week.


The children take part in weekly woodwind lessons on Tuesday mornings. Flutes need to be brought into school on this day.


Wednesday is our PE day. Kits should be kept in school at all times. They can be taken home at the end of each term to be washed.



Homework is given out on a Friday and should be returned to school by the following Friday. This half-term, homework will include: weekly spellings, timetables practice and a piece of English work.

Our weekly spelling and timetables tests will take place on a Friday.

Junior games take place on Friday afternoon. The children are allowed to come to school in their school tracksuits. 


General Reminders: 

Home- school diaries should brought in daily and signed once a week. In Year 4, we ask that the children take responsibility for letting the class teacher know if they have a message in their diary. 

Children are permitted to bring a water bottle into school each day. These should be clearly labelled with your child’s name and should only contain water.


Star Of The Day

In Year 4, we have a number of reward systems to praise and encourage exemplary behaviour. We use the dojo reward system in class. Each day, a child is chosen to be Year 4's 'Star Of The Day'. This person receives 5 dojos. At the end of each week, the child with the most dojos gets to choose a prize from Miss Gradwell's prize box.
