We are very excited to have you all back safe and well and we are all really looking forward to working together in school, once again.

On this page you will find up to date information about our current topics, key information and dates for your diary.


Mission Statement

At St Michael and All Angels School we are a Christian Community where everybody is valued and recognised for their unique contribution. We provide a child-centred education in a positive learning environment in which all children may reach their full potential. The Gospel values of love and respect are at the heart of our partnership with parents and carers, Governors, the parish and wider community.

Yr 4 Curriculum Map

Yr 4 Curriculum Map 2020-2021 

Class Dojos

Classes 9 and 10’s reward system is Class Dojos. Children can earn them for having a positive attitude towards their work, effort, a high standard of work, teamwork, caring for others, challenging themselves and many more. Children will be rewarded with prizes / certificates. However, class dojos can also be lost for unacceptable behaviour, lack of  homework etc. 


We aim for 100% attendance in every class. We want our children in school each day so that they have every opportunity to learn and develop in order to reach their full potential. Dojos are given each week for 100% attendance.


Children can bring in a healthy snack each day to take onto the playground with them. Good examples are any fruit / vegetables, cheese, toast. Please don’t bring in chocolate bars, biscuits, cereal bars or crisps as SMAAA is a healthy school.


For the time being, children will be eating their lunch in their classroom. Can we ask that the children bring packed lunches into school in a plastic bag so that they can be thrown away after lunch time. Monday – Thursday school will offer a range of sandwiches (ham, cheese, egg and tuna)  and on a Friday children will also be able to get fish and chips.


Year 4’s P.E. day is Wednesday each week. Children should come to school in their P.E. kits which should include the following:

– Yellow T shirt

– Royal Blue shorts

– Jumper/cardigan

– Come with  trainers on and track suite bottoms over PE kit


Autumn 1 

Reading and writing-Mouse, Bird, Snake Wolf.

Mathematics-Place Value.

Science-Animals including humans and Teeth.


D.T Food Technology-Apple crumble.

P.E-Speed bounce competition and Tennis.

Children must come into school wearing their PE kit on Wednesday. PE is Wednesday afternoon.

Computing-My Online Life

M.F.L-Welcome to our school

The children have all settled in really quickly and are working hard together again.

***Competition – W/C 21st September***

For extra maths practice you can follow the steps in the image below for some extra online sessions –

Also, why not try to keep active indoors, while you are at home? Every morning from 9am Joe Wicks (the Body Coach) will be holding live PE sessions on his YouTube channel (the Body Coach TV). These will be saved on his page and you can do them at any time. It is a great way to burn energy and keep yourself entertained!

Finally, remember to take time to be mindful. Spend time in quiet spaces, read books, colour pictures, listen to music, observe the nature around you.  Remember, stay safe and take care.

Science 27.03.2020 – String telephone project

All you need is some string, a sharpened pencil and 2 paper cups.


  1. Cut a long piece of string, you can experiment with different lengths but perhaps 20 metres (66 feet) is a good place to start.
  2. Poke a small hole in the bottom of each cup.
  3. Thread the string through each cup and tie knots at each end to stop it pulling through the cup (alternatively you can use a paper clip, washer or similar small object to hold the string in place).
  4. Move into position with you and a friend holding the cups at a distance that makes the string tight (making sure the string isn’t touching anything else).
  5. One person talks into the cup while the other puts the cup to their ear and listens, can you hear each other?

Let’s get creative!

How do you feel about getting creative at making your own musical instrument? When we discussed this in class, we shared some really good ideas of what we could make by using various objects. For example, we talked about how we could use kitchen roll holders and tissue boxes to make a guitar. Remember to use elastic bands for strings. Some of you talked about making a drum or shakers. Have a go! You could display you’re completed musical instrument on our Year 4 twitter page. Look forward to seeing your musical creation.
Remember to plan it first! Good luck.

We have all enjoyed learning about The Vikings. The unit is coming to an end. Last lesson we learnt about how the legal system worked in Anglo-Saxon Britain, so now,  we have an understanding of crime and punishment in Anglo-Saxon Britain. Hopefully, now we are able to compare and contrast the Anglo-Saxon and modern British justice systems.

If you missed the lesson, don’t worry, I’m sure your friends will tell you all about it!! Which brings us to the final lesson in this unit. Have a read through the power point and complete the task.

Use multiples of the 6, 7 and 9 times tables to create a bingo grid of 9 numbers.  Ask a member of your family to read out any times tables calculations of these multiplication tables and mark them off once you work out the answer.  Maybe play with a partner and see if you can beat them by marking all of yours off first!!

This half term we are taking part in dance sessions.


Please make sure children have the correct P.E kits– NO TRAINERS– children need to wear pumps. 


We will be completing a module on Hour of Code and of course, Online Safety.


  • My local area and Family Tree.


It is important that your child attends school regularly.


Homework will be given out on FRIDAY and should be returned by WEDNESDAY to celebrate our good work!  Homework will consist of spelling practise, times tables practise, completing pages of their learning log and some maths problem solving.


Snack: your child has the opportunity to buy a healthy snack during morning break– fruit, water, cheese. Alternatively, they can bring a healthy snack in with them.

Trips: We will inform you in advance if we are going on a trip.

****Football and Cross County training – this is an exciting opportunity to do some training with Mr Arnold at lunch time, providing the children display good behaviour, complete all tasks in class and at home and these are handed in on time.****

Class Dojo                

Our class reward system is Class Dojos. Children can earn them for having a positive attitude towards their work, effort, a high standard of work, teamwork, caring for others, challenging themselves and many more. Children will be rewarded with prizes. However, class dojos can also be lost for unacceptable behaviour, lack of  homework etc.
