Melling Primary School

Year 4



To support their English work at home, as well as weekly spellings, Y4 children will be completing a chapter of a book on Serial Mash (Purple Mash programme) . This will include reading a short paragraph and answering 5 multiple choice questions. On occasions, there may also be a small computing based task to go with it. This will be set Thursday - Thursday.


There will also a multiplication game set every Thursday to Thursday which will help your child get ready for their Times Tables assessment at the end of Year 4. If your child is getting a low score now, do not worry, and tell them the same as it is all about progression and just being the best that they can be.


CHET has now been added to parent pay I have been informed. If there are any problems, please come and see me on the gate or email the class email.

Meet the Teacher and CHET information evening documents

This week we have been learning about the digestive system of a human. Here are some photos of the children labelling the different parts of each others digestive system.

Welcome back to school!


Mr. Fawcett, Miss Stewart and Mrs Taylor would like to wish you a warm welcome back.  The Y4 classroom is all ready and we are excited to see your lovely smiling faces tomorrow.


Start time: 9:00am        Finish time: 3:20pm   

Drop off and pick up at side gate which used to lead to nursery.


P.E. days: Wednesday and Friday (Starting the first FULL week back)

Please come to school in your P.E. kit and a pair of trainers on those days.


Reading Records

Your child only needs to bring in their reading record on the day they have their comprehension intervention day, unless they need to change their book beforehand. Please see the document below to see which day your child will be having their comprehension intervention.

Homework Expectations



TTRS – Should be done every night, if possible, only 10 minutes. Little but often will really benefit your child.
Spellings – New spellings will go out on a Thursday and their spelling test will be the following Thursday. It is essential that your child brings in their spelling book on a Thursday so they do not miss out on their new set of spellings.
Mathletics – Your child should be getting a score of 500 points each week. (Monday to Monday)
Readiwriter (same login details as Mathletics) – This is to accompany your child's weekly spellings. Their spellings will be updated each week to match the list they have in their spelling books.
Purple Mash – There may be the odd piece of homework on here to go alongside what you child is currently learning about in class.
