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.

Dear Parents, Carers,

A warm welcome back and wishing you all a happy New Year from the Year Four team.

If you have not yet read the recent letter, please click the link:https://www.howard.croydon.sch.uk/wp-content/uploads/2021/01/Letter-re-temporary-school-closure-03-01-2021.pdf

Thank you for completing the survey sent to you which has helped us identify which children will attend school.

Each week a member of  the year four teaching team as well as a teaching assistant will be at school teaching the key worker children whilst the other teacher will be setting and marking work set on Google Classroom for those children working at home. They will also be available during school hours to answer any questions you may have about your child’s home learning via the year group email address-year4@howard.croydon.sch.uk

If your  child will be attending school due to your work as a critical worker, we look forward to welcoming your child to school tomorrow.

If  your child does not fall the above category, please keep them at home and we will provide remote learning via Google Classroom. Please login to your child’s Google Classroom to access the suggested timetable and links to work for Monday and Tuesday. Work for Wednesday onwards will be posted directly onto Google Classroom. Please be assured that your child at home will experience the same learning content as the children who will be attending school. 

Weekly Timetable for Home Learning Wk beginning 4.1.21

We look forward to welcoming you and your children to a very different start to their new school term whether that will be online or in person.

Kind regards and keep safe,

Miss Turpie and the Year Four team
