Miss Gradwell

Year 4 Classteacher

Welcome To Year 4!


In Year 4, our class teacher is Miss Gradwell. Mrs McCartney is our Teaching Assisstant.

Things to remember in Year 4:


Dinner money and toast money should be paid using the online payment system. Toast is £1.50 per week.

Home readers should be returned on a Monday.

Children will be given weekly spellings on a Monday. These will then be tested in class on the following Monday. Spelling rules can be practised on Spelling Shed. Login details can be found in the children's diaries.

Homework will be set on Monday and should be returned to school the following Monday.


Flutes will need to be brought into school for our weekly music lesson led by Saint Helens Music Service.

The children will have a weekly times table test on Tuesday. This will be on times tables we have been learning in class. Logins for Times Tables Rock Stars can be found in the children's diaries and they should log on to practise their times tables as part of their weekly homework.


Wednesday is our PE day. Children can come into school wearing their school tracksuits on this day. This means that P.E. kits do not need to be kept in school.



Junior games take place on Friday afternoon. The children are allowed to come to school in their school tracksuits. 

General Reminders: 

Home-school diaries should be signed and brought in daily. In Year 4, we ask that the children take responsibility for letting the class teacher know if they have a message in their diary. 

Children are permitted to bring a water bottle into school each day. These should be clearly labelled with your child’s name and should only contain water. Children can bring pencil cases into school however they are not mandatory, all necessary equipment will be provided in class.
