A warm welcome to Howard Primary School’s newest class-Southwark Class children, parents and carers.

Please feel free to write us a note in your child’s homework diary, come and talk to us after school any day or phone the school to speak to us directly if there is anything you wish to discuss concerning your child.


Key Information:

  • A wide selection of quality books have been purchased for this class this year and your child is encouraged to take home a book every day. Each time you sign to show your child has read at home, they will receive a marble towards their team jar. The team with the most marbles at the end of the week will be crown team of the week!
  • Homework will be set on Friday and due in the following Friday unless stated otherwise on the homework (A longer time will be set for projects)
  • Spellings will be learnt at school and tested on Mondays. Please click on link: school-links-spellingjournalyear4southwark-1
  • In your child’s homework diary, they will have a green stamp at the end of each day to show they are following our school’s ‘Good to be Green’ behaviour policy. If they do not get a green stamp it is because they have not ended the day on a green card or have received a red card during the day. You will be notified by text if a red card consequence has occurred.

Year 4 Easter Break!

April 4, 2020

Well done for all your amazing work over the past two weeks Year 4. It has been wonderful to see how hard you are all working and to be able to share your fantastic work with us on Class Dojo!

You may be aware that Monday is the start of the Easter holidays. We believe that you all deserve your Easter break and so we are suspending our daily learning blog for the next two weeks. We will resume our daily blog on Monday 20th April.

If you wish to continue your learning during this time, feel free to look back over previous blogs for tasks you have missed or wish to try again. Of course, TT Rockstars, Mathletics, Get Epic and Fiction Express all remain available to you and reading remains an important part of your learning. We have also included an Easter Bingo sheet of activities you might like to try with your families which you could share with us on Class Dojo. Easter Activity Bingo

We hope that you get an opportunity to enjoy the sunny weather which is predicted for the Easter break while still keeping safe with your family.

Stay well and happy and check back on the blog on Monday 20th April!

Year 4 Team-Miss Danzey and Miss Turpie

Year 4 Daily Home Learning Friday 3rd April

April 3, 2020

Sorry for the late upload, technical difficulties this morning!

We are at the end of week 2, we hope  you are all keeping well and have found a routine for yourselves.

Your daily home learning tasks:

Maths-Try day 4, hundredths on a place value grid


English- Read and compare the two poems;

The Dragon Who Ate Our School

How the bumble bee got his stripes

Which do you like best? Why?

Pick your favourite poem and then turn it into a storyboard (like a story map, pick out the key points and use words and pictures to record) Storyboard

Then write a story version of your poem using expanded noun phrases, fronted adverbial phrases and a range of conjunctions.

Singing-If you want to have a go at some music, then check out this site. You should know some of the songs already but there are new ones to learn too


Keep safe and well. Remember to keep in touch through Class Dojo!
