Let's celebrate - Show us what you've done!

We would love to see one piece of work emailed in from the children each week. This should be viewed as a celebration of a wonderful piece of work and can be used as a gentle nudge to focus attention on an area of learning. All submitted work will be viewed by their teacher and possibly published on the website. We would like it to be submitted each Friday, please. A gem will be given for the piece of work submitted. 


Please email us one piece of work each week (with either J4, J5 or J6 in the subject) to

We will respond as soon as possible to children's work via the Y4 email account.


Please keep sending in the videos and photos to show us what else you have been getting up to at home. It puts big smiles on our faces.


Watch the online celebration assembly each Friday to see who has won the gem awards for the week in each class. It could be you!


If you have any questions and queries, please do email us or contact the school directly.
All our best wishes.
Mr. Beauchamp, Mrs. Amin, Mrs. Walton, Mr Bainbridge, Mrs. Maycock, Mrs. Booth and Mrs. Blacksell.

Pick up and go writing tasks



Use these resources to support your spelling of common words.


The best way to help you remember them forever (save them in your long term memory) is through regular quizzing and practice.




1. Choose 10 spellings to learn from the spelling lists below.


2. Practice them on your own using the spelling strategies below.


3. Ask an adult to test you after a bit of 'forgetting time'.


4. Practice the ones you got wrong.


5. Choose your next 10 spellings including any old ones that you still need to learn.


6. Adults can informally test you throughout the week on a mixture of spellings learned over the weeks. This helps spellings (in fact, any knowledge) to be saved in long term memory.


These spellings may not need to be learned by everyone. If you are confident when spelling these in your writing, then learn the Y3/Y4 spellings below.


Let us know how you get on!
