Welcome to Year 4!

My name is Mr Roscoe and I have been teaching at St Simon’s since September 2016 as the Year 4 teacher. Also in the class we have experienced TA’s and a LSA helping to ensure children get the support that they need. These are Mrs Whelan, Mrs Milner and Mrs O’Callaghan.


Your children should be in for a really exciting year full of interesting topics such as the Ancient Greeks, volcanoes and the Romans. Look at the curriculum overview on this page for more details on the year ahead. This block, the theme is Through the Roman Keyhole, where we will explore the rise and fall of the Roman Empire. This then ties in with the class text which is The Thieves of Ostia by Caroline Lawrence. This book is the first in a series that follows the journey of Flavia Gemina as she tries to solve mysteries.


PE takes place on a Tuesday and Friday. On a Tuesday, the children will continue to need their outdoor P.E kit for Tennis and they will need their indoor PE kit for Dance (On a Friday). 



Children should read for 20 minutes every evening and record this in their reading records every time they read. The records will be collected in on a Tuesday and Thursday so they can be checked by a member of staff but books can be changed at any point. Maths and English homework will be handed out on a Friday and is to be returned by Wednesday at the latest. Spellings are given out every Monday and will be tested on the following Monday. There will be opportunities for the children to take part in topic based challenges throughout the year too and these will be given on Class Dojo.

Class Dojo.

The school uses Class Dojo as a way to promote growth mindset as well as being an opportunity for you to contact me about any query you may have. Your child will receive positive points on this site for displaying the key skills within growth mindset. Please make sure you have signed up so that we can share all our learning with you.
