This year the class teacher is Mrs Pierlejewski, supported by Miss Jones, Mrs Stanley and Mrs Riding.
We look forward to having a brilliant year in year 4 and having lots of fun times together!
Our P.E day is Monday (the year 4 classes are taught by a coach and play lots of fun games and sports in their bubble) Please come to school dressed in your P.E kit on this day. This can be jogging bottoms and a white t-shirt or shorts and t-shirt on warmer days. Children will remain in P.E kits and do not require a change of clothes. Yoga for year 4 takes place on Tuesdays. Children do not require a P.E kit on this day but they can wear one if it is more comfortable for them. Please remember to provide a named water bottle to bring into class which can be accessed during the school day. Water bottles will be sent home daily. Reading books will be sent out on Mondays and can be read at home and returned by Friday please. They will then be sent out the following Monday.
Thank you for your support.
Half Term Reading
Below is a link to our Autumn Reading Bingo. We would like you to complete as many of the reading tasks as you can and share your completed bingo board with us on Twitter @ChrissiesSpeke.
You can access free online books by signing up at www.readliverpool.co.uk
Our themed home learning menus will continue to be added weekly to the website. Each week will be a different theme, but if you would like to spend longer on a theme, that is absolutely fine. In addition to our theme, we have added some basic skills for that week (maths, reading, phonics etc) to the top of the menu. These are things that children should be practising regularly, so spending a little bit of time on these each day will really help. We hope you are enjoying the themes and please share any work with us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or on Twiter @ChrissiesSpeke

With many of our children at St Christopher's, as well as other schools around the country, having to self-isolate due to COVID-19 ( Coronavirus) we want to make sure that the children are still learning while at home. To help with this, we have created a sample timetable for learning at home, which you can find below.
We have created a home learning menu around a certain theme, with a selection of activities that you may want to do at home. A new menu will be uploaded each week with a different theme. We hope you enjoy trying some of the activities.
Spelling and Maths Shed will also be updated weekly with different tasks.
Below are English and maths activities that are easy to follow from Hamilton Trust. They will be added each week so that they are there for you if you need them.
