Adventurers 9 is a Year 4 class taught by Miss Ingoe and supported by Ms Roach.
Welcome to Adventurers 9! We are going to have the most amazing year and I can’t wait to see you all.
Monday 6th and Tuesday 7th September 2021 – INSET days (School closed to pupils)
Wednesday 8th September 2021 – First day of Autumn term
Monday 13th September 2021 – Dimensions Launch Day (Come to school dressed as an Adventurer!)
Wednesday 13th October 2021– Year 4 Football competition at Boldon Comp.
Children in Year 4 start school at 8:45am and finishes at 3:15pm. The children will be collected from the Burn side gate (Field).
All children finish at 3.15pm and should be collected from their classroom yard exits. All 3 gates will be opened from 3.10pm (please don’t arrive early to avoid congregation) on entering the school please come through the Burn Side gate.
Some children in Adventurers 9 will need to come to school at 8:30am daily for Phonics. Your child will have received a letter if this applies to them.
KS2 pupils are entitled to milk, either free or paid, however paid milk MUST be paid on Parent Pay. Please see the school office if you need help using Parent Pay.
Class 9 in the first half term will have Tennis for P.E. on Wednesday afternoon.
Children need to keep P.E. kit on their pegs for the half term in case of any timetable changes. We will be outside for tennis so it is possible we will change days if the weather is bad.
On P.E. Days, children will need to wear the correct P.E. kit:
- Plain white t-shirt (with or without school logo)
- Navy or black jogging bottoms/leggings or shorts
- Black or white trainers
- School hoodie or plain navy hooded top (optional)
We are also very happy that Year 4 can recommence swimming on a weekly basis this half term. We will be walking to Boldon Comp on a Monday morning for swimming lessons with Mrs Legg.
Children will need to bring appropriate swimming kit on Mondays to take part:
- Swimming costume (no two-pieces)
- Swimming hat / goggles (optional)
Reading is extremely important and fantastic fun. We ask that you aim to read with your child at least 3 times per week (and sign their reading diaries). As part of our new reading initiative this year, children who have read to an adult 3 times in a week will receive a sticker or stamp on their own personal reading bookmark. Once they fill their bookmark, they will receive a special reward!
I can’t wait to hear all about the amazing books you read.
Homework in Year 4 consists of daily reading and weekly spellings. Spellings will be given out once per week and tested on a Friday morning. Year 4 will also be given an optional Times Table worksheet to complete and will be rewarded with Dojo points. Year 4 have the Times Table check at the end of the year, so it is important that they are practicing at home. The children can also use Spelling shed, TTRS and Maths shed at home.

Please see our Curriculum pages for each year group’s long term planning.
This year we will be using Class Dojo school-wide as a means of maintaining parent communication and as our whole-school rewards system. I will be posting regular updates to our Class Story throughout the year as well as reminders for parents and pupils.
If you need an invite to join our classroom as a Parent/Guardian please let me know.
See you all in school!
