Roddlesworth- Years 4, 5 & 6 2023 - 2024

Welcome to Roddlesworth class. 

We are a mixed age class of Year 4, 5 and 6 children. We aim to make learning engaging, challenging and supportive for all. The learning environment is well structured and prepares the older children for their transition on to secondary school. 

When children reach Roddlesworth class they are trusted with responsibility in school. This allows the children to mature, grow in confidence and self-esteem and become good role models for the younger children. 

We have an ethos of mutual respect between staff and children in class which promotes a happy, harmonious environment to work in. We believe that in order for this to happen, each and every member of our class must uphold our eight core values.

Swimming - Mondays until February Half Term 2023 and PE Wednesdays 


On these days, the children will need to bring their allotment clothes in a bag and come to school in their uniform. As the weather becomes warmer, it is important to consider sending your child in with appropriate clothing as there is very little shade in our outdoor classroom. Here is a list of suitable clothing suggestions: 

  • Suitable outdoor shoes/ wellies
  • Waterproof coat
  • Gloves (preferably gardening gloves)
  • Suitable clothes for the weather
  • Sun hat
  • Suncream

Homework, spellings and reading 

Homework is sent out weekly on a Friday and consists of a grid of activities to cover the entire curriculum. Your child can choose a task to complete each week and will be expected to bring these in the following Friday. 

Spellings will also be sent home on a Friday in the form of a particular spelling pattern. The children are expected to explore words including this particular pattern and will be tested on 10 words containing the pattern on the following Friday. It is of the child's responsibility to explore the spelling pattern and will be given the opportunity to practise during the school day, as well as practising at home. 

It is imperative that your child spends time reading during the week and we encourage you to discuss the books and vocabulary with them. Although many of our Year 4, 5 and 6 children are independent readers, it is still important for them to complete their reading records and have this signed by a parent/ guardian when the reading has taken place. 

How you can help at home:

- Read with your child as often as possible and question them about tricky vocabulary and events in the story. 

- Support your child with their homework. 

- Play number games such as Times Table Rockstars or Numbots at home. 

- Engage in the subjects being taught in school at home to motivate and excite your child.
