Welcome to Class 9              Croeso i Ddosbarth 9

Tymor yr Gwanwyn/ Spring Term 

We are pleased to welcome you back to school at the start of the Spring term in Year 4. We are looking forward to teaching our brand new topic and have lots of exciting things planned.

During the first half term the topic is called 'Darganfod/Discoveries'. This will include thinking and learning about discoveries (and possibly some inventions!) around the world that have had an impact on our daily lives. As part of this we will be investigating magnetism. We will carry out a variety of writing tasks linked to this topic on eof which inlcudes the children writing their own Adventure story. In Religious Education we will be looking at Pilgrimage around the world. In Mathematics we will continue to introduce and revise many mathematical strategies and then apply these in our Numeracy lessons.  



PE lessons are on Mondays and /or Wednesdays. Children will need to attend school in their Mountain Lane PE kit on these days.  Remember this should include jogging bottoms in case of colder weather, as all PE sessions will take place outdoors.

This term year 4 will also be taking part in Swimming lessons which will take place on a Tuesday morning.  These will continue until the Easter break (Covid rules permitting). A letter has been sent out with further information on.

If children wear earrings, please ensure that they are removed or taped up on these days.  


Year 4 are timetabled for the forest on Tuesday mornings. You will be informed when these sessions will take place. On these days the children should come in to school dressed in suitable, warm clothing and waterproof coat. They should also bring a change of footwear e.g. wellies / walking boots.

Homework and reading

The children in Year 4 will contiue to  bring a reading book home. Please try to read a little bit daily and return it to school when it is finished and needs to be replaced. This is soemthing we are trialling this year so any feedback you have is welcome.

On a weekly basis the children will be having spelling lessons. Some of the children will be bringing a list of spellings home to learn. They will be tested on them in their sessions in school. 


We look forward to another great, busy term!
