Welcome to Mulberry Class

Wishing you all every success in Year 4

Enjoy the Summer Holidays!



Dear Parents,


Thank you for the lovely and thoughtful gifts, we will indulge in chocolates whilst the diffusers will create a wonderful ambience over the summer and next term the Mulberry Team will be smelling beautiful. They are a real treat thank you!


It has been a pleasure teaching the children this year they are a lovely class who are enthusiastic and eager to learn, we are proud of the progress they have all made and the resilience they are starting to develop. We wish them all a wonderful summer and every success in Year 4.


Hope you all have wonderful holidays - see you in September.


Kind regards,


Mrs Costar and Mrs Schroeter

    Please remember -  (we award family points for completed homework activities.)

    • Maths homework is set online every Wednesday on the MyMaths app, please refer to the inside cover of reading diaries for login details.
    • We would like to encourage children to use the TT Rockstars app to develop their multiplication and division skills. We have a weekly inter class competition in juniors to see which class spends the most time practising their multiplication skills on TTRockstar.
    • English homework will be sent home on Fridays. 
    • Children should be reading a little bit daily or at least 4 times a week and recording this in their reading diaries. We ask that you record when an adult has listened and when your child has been reading independently, and also whether any book read is a school leveled reader or a self chosen personal book. Please assist your child to keep their reading diary in their school bags so that it is brought into school each day.
