Please note that any previous messages from Year 4 will be archived in the Archived Daily Messages Link below.


Additional - if you are able to join us in the last 2 weeks please bring in any school reading/library books you may have. Also for the week you are in please bring a reading book that you will keep in school for the week for reading sessions, thank you.

Hi Year 4,

We are really looking forward to seeing some of you over the next couple of weeks. We will be doing Forest School on the Wednesday of both weeks. Please come to school in clothes that are suitable (long sleeves/trousers/waterproofs/spare socks). It does not have to be school uniform.

Usually we get changed into our forest school clothes but we are asking you to attend school in your forest school clothes, which you will remain in for the day. A change of shoes/socks plus waterproofs is fine to have as extra. 

See you soon.

Into the second week of Y4 return and I am really enjoying seeing so many of you back in school and so excited. For those unable to return we will be getting in touch with information about collecting reports and to find out how you are.

Please keep using our Blog to keep in touch and share your wonderful work and achievements.


Children I have put your new activities in the Home Learning Summer 2 - 13.7.20. You will find resources to support your learning too. White Rose is Week 11 for the Daily Maths Lessons in case you want to watch the videos on the website or BBC Bite size. There is a video that you will need to watch for the English on the Didsbury Road Home Page - Home Learning - Video Centre (near the blog link)


Remember to keep in touch via the blog and let us know how you are getting on. It is so lovely to hear from you!


How are you going to start your day? Keep up with your daily exercise! It's good for the mind as well as the body!

Most of all have fun! Be happy and remember your smile could make all the difference to someone's day.

You are amazing and we are all so very proud of you!


Have a fabulous week everyone!

Mrs Holmes and Mrs Fort
