Welcome to Team 4!

We are delighted in welcoming the Team 4 children back to school this week in Autumn one. This term is fun-filled and planned with exciting learning that we are sure will have your child leaping through the school gates each morning. Please have a look through our curriculum leaflet for all the information about the topics we will be covering this term.

At the end of this term, we will be putting our research and artistic skills to the test as part of an exciting European Christmas tree decoration exchange with 30 other countries! Further to this, we will be challenging the children of Team 3 and Team 4 to host their very own Christmas markets here at Horn’s Mill. Watch this space for all the details.

Swimming – Team 4 children will go swimming for nine weeks of the Autumn term on a Thursday afternoon. This will start on the 12th of September and finish on the 14th of November. They will go swimming with Miss Delaney, Mrs Bullough and Mrs Lindsay. The children will be back in time for home time at 3:15 pm. During these sessions, they will learn to swim confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres. They will use a range of strokes effectively and perform safe ‘self-rescue’ techniques in different water-based situations.


Home Learning – The way we implement homework here at Horn’s Mill has changed. We value the vital importance reading has on a child’s life and education. With that in mind, we are having a huge reading campaign this year and we need your help to ensure your child is reading at home too. We would be extremely grateful if your child could read for a minimum of 10 minutes per day from Sunday through to Thursday. Ideally, this would be done with another person but if this is not possible reading alone for this time is still very impactful. We are doing a wide range of things in school to help inspire your child to read more. We have plenty of allocated time to read for pleasure. We have personally bought a library full of books that are current and interesting for your child. These are fully accessible and children can take them home too. We also have plenty of discussions about books and authors sharing our likes and dislikes.  

Times Tables – At the end of Team 4 your child will sit a National Times Table Test set by the government. We would appreciate if you could encourage your child to practise their times tables each day. To aid this practise your child has been given a FREE subscription to Times Tables RockStars! It is vital that this resource is utilised. We have started with times tables games in class and will continue with this throughout the school year. 

If you need any advice or assistance with anything that you think we may be able to help with, our door is always open and we are more than willing to help where we can. Thank you for all your support! 

Mr Oldfield and Mrs Bullough.
