Mr Willmott


Welcome to Year 4 

Class Teachers: Mr Willmott and Mrs Brown

Teaching Assistants: Mrs Sleeman and Mis Bodele

Keep checking our class page for updates on all of the fantastic things we are doing in and out of school!


PE is on a Tuesday afternoon. Please send your child into school every Monday wearing the following: 

  • Plain white T-Shirt
    • Plain tracksuit or leggings (black) may be worn
    for outdoor lessons during winter.
    • Black shorts
    • Pumps
    • School jumper is fine if it is cold outside.
    I suggest children wear tracksuit bottoms or leggings as we will be doing PE outside if weather permits.



Each week, children are expected to:  
- read at least three times and this should be recorded in their reading record. 
- practise their weekly spellings at home.
- practise their times tables by using TT rockstars or verbal or written activities.

Children are also expected to complete two activities from the Homework Menu for this term (Autumn 1).



Spellings will be tested every Wednesday morning. Children will be given the opportunity to practise their spellings in school but must also practise at home as part of their homework.

In school, we will be focusing on the 'Common Exception Words' for the current year group and previous year groups where necessary. These are words that cannot often be spelt phonetically and are most commonly used in their writing.



Reading is incredibly important to us at St John's. School policy states that children must read at home at least three times a week in addition to any reading done in school.  Reading must be recorded in their yellow reading record book and signed by an adult. Reading records will be checked and books changed every Wednesday.


Times tables

It is really important for Year 4 to practise their times table as they should be working towards knowing up to 12 x 12. Year 4 should continue to access Times Tables Rockstars. The children will be having weekly slots in the Computer room using this programme and they will also have in-class sessions to improve their accuracy and speed. Children can access TT Rockstars from home from a computer or an ipad/tablet. All they need is their login details which are stuck inside their reading records. If they don't have them, please see Mr Willmott.
