Hello and welcome to Year 4!


This year your children will be taught by Ms Meyer!


The whole school this term will be learning under the topic ‘Planed Berffaith’ which means ‘Perfect Planet’. We will be looking at a whole range of issues across the different areas of learning. Our focus will mainly be on the Rainforest.


“ Together we will embark on building a curriculum that embraces four key purposes, supporting children and young people. “

The children will learn about these through our four characters. The children will be taught to be like:

  • Ambitious Aled someone who is a capable learners ready to learn throughout their lives;
  • Enterprising Elen, someone who is a creative contributor, ready to play a full part in life and work;
  • Ethical Eleri, someone who is an informed citizen of Wales and the world; and

Healthy Harri, someone who is a confident individual, ready to lead fulfilling lives as a valued member of society.


PE days- Our PE day is on a Monday. Please can the children wear their PE kits to school on these days. PE kits should be appropriate clothing using suitable footwear.


Homework and reading
For reading, in school we follow a scheme called Accelerated Reader. The children use an online reading comprehension to find their level. The children then choose a book within that level to bring home to read. Reading books are to be returned on a daily basis. We teach reading in school every day and need their reading books. Homework will be given out on a Friday on google classroom. Spellings will also be given out Fridays and the children tested the following Friday.


Any concerns or worries please contact me directly through the school, in person or via Class Dojo. Also for any updates please see our school website/twitter page and Class Dojo.


Yours sincerely,

Ms Meyer- Class Teacher
